Goodyear EfficientGrip SUV tyre launched


EfficientGrip SUV is the latest offering in Goodyear’s ‘EfficientGrip’ family, and follows the Wrangler HP All Weather range.

It’s been dubbed the ‘decathlete of the tyre world’ because, unlike high performance road tyres or really rugged off-roaders, EfficientGrip SUV is a jack-of-all-trades.

The new tyre combines the excellent road and braking grip qualities of the EfficientGrip range, while incorporating Goodyear’s innovative FuelSaving technology, better rolling resistance, and a comfortable yet quiet ride on both tar and dirt.

Independent tests against both predecessors and competitors have shown EfficientGrip SUV to deliver:
•    lower fuel consumption
•    lower co² emissions
•    a quieter ride
•    dramatically reduced braking distance

In South Africa, a broad size range (from 16” to 19”) of this all-rounder will be imported by Goodyear for the local market, as well as for OE replacement requirement.

EfficientGrip SUV is produced using the very latest manufacturing techniques and materials.  An advanced tread compound is tightly woven into the tyre’s structure, for example, which uses traction resins to further enhance wet braking; and noise is minimised by utilising an optimised block design and sequence.

The tyre is also lighter, which improves steering precision and handling for drivers.
