A tyre designed to last, with outstanding durability and handling. The Goodyear EfficientGrip Compact is a long-lasting tyre with excellent fuel efficiency, wet weather braking and aquaplaning resistance. The EfficientGrip Compact tyre delivers security and comfort with high levels of handling and performance. The lightweight construction enables a low rolling resistance. Special cavity shape, two big circumsferential grooves and blades offer good wet performance.
The fuel-saving tyre for long life and confident wet or dry handling
The new Goodyear EfficientGrip Compact combines high mileage and fuel efficiency with shorter braking distances in wet or dry.
Environmentally friendly. A stiffer tread design reduces rolling resistance, resulting in lower CO2 emissions, while regular wear means longer tyre life and less waste generated.
Shorter braking distances on wet and dry roads. A new tread design features dual wide grooves, extra large sipes and multiple biting edges to cut through surface water for improved braking in the wet.
Better resistance to aquaplaning. A rounder cavity shape stops the accumulation of water in front of the tyre to help prevent aquaplaning.
Improved fuel efficiency and mileage. Advances in tyre components and construction reduce overall tyre weight by 5%* for improved rolling resistance, while optimised pressure distribution promotes even tyre wear.
Better fuel efficiency and value By improving manufacturing materials and techniques, Goodyear have shaved 5%* off the tyre's weight. This reduces rolling resistance, so you'll save on fuel and enjoy better mileage. Improved pressure distribution across the tyre means you'll also benefit from more even wear across the treads.
Environmentally friendly A lower rolling resistance also makes the tyre more eco-friendly, as its lower fuel consumption means less CO2 emissions. Because it wears evenly, the tyre will also need to be replaced less frequently, which helps reduce waste.
Improved braking in all conditions Extra wide grooves and plenty of sharp biting edges for slicing through surface water feature on the EfficientGrip Compact's new tread design, to deliver shorter braking distances in both rainy and dry weather.
Aquaplaning resistance Feel safe on the road in all weathers with tyres designed to reduce aquaplaning. Rounder cavity shapes prevent water from building up in front of the tyre, to reduce the risk of aquaplaning.

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
