2020-07-16 - Thanks for all your excellent and comprehensive reviews! I usually put Goodyear tyres on my 2004 BMW 330Ci convertible as they almost always rate very highly in tests. It takes 205/50 R17 93Ws. I am attracted to the EfficientGrip Performance 2 as it scores very highly in all categories. The EU rating is A for wet grip and B for rolling resistance. It is described as a premium touring tyre. It seems to be new though and there aren’t as many tests available for it. My normal choice would have been the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5. This is also A rated for wet grip but only E for rolling resistance. It is described as a max performance tyre. Both of the above are available in the size I need and I am genuinely conflicted as to which of them would be the best choice for my BMW. It is a powerful car and heavy in convertible form. The two tyres each rate highly among their category peers (touring/ max performance) but, because of the different categories, I can’t find a review/ test that rates them against each other. The EfficientGrip seems to be perfectly adequate for the weight & speed ratings required for my car. I note that the Eagle F1 is the only option in larger tyre sizes that might be required for a high performance car and my feeling is that the Eagle F1 would be better suited for spirited driving but I am concerned about the E rating for rolling resistance. I would be grateful for your input in choosing between these and your advice as to the criteria for ultimately deciding between them. I would normally have picked the Eagle F1 but as these both score almost identically and the EfficientGrip scores better for rolling resistance and tyre life I am swinging towards it instead but maybe the E rating of the Eagle F1 isn’t all bad and there are other factors I should consider. Let me know what you think. Thanks.
If you prefer a comfortable ride above all else, at the expense of sporty handling, then the EfficientGrip Performance 2 range is the choice. For me, I would put the Asymmetric 5 on the vehicle as I like to enjoy driving, and the real world difference between B and E in rolling resistance doesn't amount to a huge amount of extra petrol over the life of a tyre!
2021-03-05 - Which one should I choose between these one and GY Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5? Im looking for size 225/45/17 for Audi A3.
The Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2 is the better tyre if you would prefer more comfort, and the Asymmetric 5 is the more sporty tyre.
2020-09-05 - What is the weight for a 205/55/16 tyre? Thanks
You can find the weight here
2020-10-25 - what is the country that made this model please? Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2 size 205/55/16
It will depend on where you are in the world and what load and speed index you require. I suggest speaking to a local tyre dealer to find out where his stock of the Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2 is manufactured.
2021-04-07 - I am considering Goodyear EP2 and the BFG Advantage in 205/55/16 size. Inclination goes to the goodyear, but you say that the BFG is even more comfortable. Is there really a difference in comfort between these two? I have a Seat Leon which has some horrid tires, and want to swap them to the most comfortable on the market, but still retain some decent performance.
In my test the Goodyear and BFGoodrich were different load ratings so it's not the best comparison of comfort. I would suggest fitting the EfficientGrip Performance 2 as the other benefits of the tyre outweigh a very small increase in comfort for a tyre with lesser abilities overall.
2022-01-11 - What is the commanded cold Tyre pressure of the Goodyear Efficient Grip Performance 2 205/55R/16 91W?
The tyre pressures are vehicle dependant so please check your handbook or door shut for the correct pressure.
2022-05-31 - I have a 2007 Mitsubishi Colt Czt with 205/45/16 tires. This car is the only one that i have and it serves all kind of purposes, i have bc coilovers and powerflex all around cause i like some spirited driving on the many twisted roads here in Greece. Since this tyre size has little options i'm between Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2, Michelin Pilot Sport 3 and Efficientgrip Performance 2. Due to different tyre categories each on is in i can't decide which one is better for my purpose.
The Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2 will likely offer the best comfort, lowest fuel use and best wet grip. The Asymmetric 2 will likely handle the best in the dry, and the PS3 will be somewhere in between.
2023-02-23 - Would the Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2 or Michelin ePrimacy be better for overall efficiency and longevity for an MG5 EV?
There's a test appearing on the site tomorrow with both of them in. The e.Primacy has slightly lower energy use but the Goodyear has much better wet grip, while still having low energy use, so it depends how important rolling resistance is to you.
