    Questions and Answers for the Goodyear EfficientGrip 2 SUV

    2022-02-21 - Can you compare good year efficient grip 2 suv and continental cross contact lx2 models? Is it worth it to replace continentals with good year for city use?

    You could check this test to see the LX2 compared to the T005 which is usually similar in rolling resistance to the EG2SUV.

    2022-11-23 - this item: Goodyear 225/60 R17 Efficientgrip 2 Suv, is it also good for season winter in Southampton ?

    The EGP2SUV is a summer SUV tyre which means its performance in the wet when cold will be reduced and the tyre will have very little performance in the snow.

    2023-04-26 - Is Goodyear EfficientGrip 2 SUV and Goodyear EfficientGrip 2 Performance the same tyre? Or Is it called a SUV because of the size? Because of tyre patterns look the same.

    Essentially, yes. The Goodyear EfficientGrip 2 SUV and EGP2 are very similar tyres in performance qualities.

    2023-11-29 - Is this tyre suitable for EVs? In particular I am asking for my car, the BMW iX3, thanks.

    The EfficientGrip range has low rolling resistance at its core, and I believe most of the sizes are marked "EV Ready", so if you can find the correct size and load index for your vehicle the Goodyear EfficientGrip 2 SUV would make a good all round tyre.

    I've been using it for 2 months about 2000 miles and, it's an incredibly comfortable tire. I'm not sure about the noise after blizzak lm005 tyre(maybe it is good about noise also), but the performance of absorbing road is very successful, extremely comfortable.

    Have only been suing these on my E83 X3 for 3 weeks or so. Only on dry tar so. Comfort levels are a huge step up from the 235x55 tyres on before and grip is excellent. My concern relate to durability. After a week I had a catastrophic puncture on the high way through the thickest part of the tread and looked like a bullet hole. I was able to stop immediately and have repaired the puncture. Worrying nonetheless. Secondly, the sidewalls appear thin and there is no rim protection built in. No issues yet but I recall tyres like this in the past tearing quite easily if you kiss a kerb. Time will tell.

    I was looking a new summer tires for my Mazda cx5 because when I bought it there were some unknown sporty summer tires from last owners.There were actually really good on dry,fast cornering and so but on the wet really unpredictable.So I started watching your videos and thanks to you decided for Efficient Grip 2.For 19 inch tire it's fair amount comfortable,grip on wet is really important because I drive on autobahn every day to work and till know I never had risky situation in fast cornering or heavy rain.Never tested it on off-road or some grass.All in all I am definitely buying this tire again considering the price.

    A comfortable, safe and secure tyre. Compared to my previous tyres - Conti EcoContact 6 - the GoodYears has lower noise, better comfort and feels safer in the wet. They don’t aquaplan as easy as the Conti’s. Not a sports tyre, but a comfortable touring tyre. Safe road holding with good grip and traction but a little soft and don’t communicate well. Not a tyre for sporty driving, but great for everyday use.

    VERY pleasant tire,very quiet and supple. feels round and smooth. good grip and respond to inputs. bought it after 4 years with the alenza 001 which is more responsive and sporty but harsher and louder.
