Goodyear EfficientGrip SUV
The fuel-saving SUV tyre that brakes shorter
The EfficientGrip SUV is the fuel-saving SUV tyre that brakes shorter.
Based on FuelSaving Technology that has proven its effectiveness in the award winning* passenger tyre EfficientGrip, Goodyear has developed the EfficientGrip SUV. This SUV tyre combines the highly comfortable ride of an SUV vehicle with lower environmental impact. Thanks to the use of innovative technologies and materials Goodyear engineers have combined high performance: shorter braking distance on dry and wet roads and improved steering precision and handling, with lower fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and low noise**, all benefits that positively impact both your wallet and the environment. Reducing the impact on the environment without compromising on performance, makes the EfficientGrip SUV the perfect choice for every SUV driver.

Fuel-saving design. Reduce your fuel stops and CO2 emissions with the EfficientGrip SUV. Goodyear’s FuelSaving Technology combines a lightweight structure with advanced materials that lower rolling resistance. The result is a tyre that moves more efficiently, leaving a lighter impact on your wallet and the environment.
Shorter braking distance on wet and dry roads. Benefit from shorter braking, come rain or shine.*Special traction resins in the tread deliver increased grip when stopping in the wet. The tread pattern features 3-dimensional shoulder blades that enhance braking grip on dry roads.
Long-lasting. The EfficientGrip SUV gives you more mileage between tyre changes. Its silica tread compound keeps the tyre working for longer, saving you money.
Improved steering precision and handling. Enjoy responsive steering and handling, thanks to the EfficientGrip SUV’s lower weight and an optimised design that maintains tyre stiffness around bends.
FuelSaving Technology Tread compound using 'functionalized' polymer 3D blades at shoulders Increase tread pattern circumferential stiffness. Tread compound using traction resins. Lower tyre weight Increase tread pattern lateral stiffness. New bead area shape Computer optimised cavity shape and tread stiffness. Higher net to gross ratio (+4%vs pred) Higher nr of block pitch (68 +#8594, 72) optimised block design and sequence. Staggering at shoulder notches on the intermediate ribs.
