    Questions and Answers for the Goodyear EfficientGrip SUV

    2016-05-11 - Hi, which Is better for normal use on the road for my Land Rover Freelander TD4 2.2 4x4? : - Goodyear Efficientgrip Suv 235/65 r17 104v m+s. ( E - C - 67db ) - Hankook DynaproHP2 (RA33) 235/65 r17 108v m+s. ( C - B - 70db ) By label it seems to be better Hankook, but by some tests (Auto Bild and others) it seems to be better Goodyear, so i don't understand which Is better. Perhaps they are similar on the same level, so it is preferible Hankook because the price Is lower. Or not? I wait your opinion, thank you. Best regards.

    Unfortunately without direct experience of either tyre, like yourself we have to default to user reviews and tyre tests. Both tyres will be excellent tyres, Goodyear are one of the best tyre manufacturers in the world, and Hankook have recently been making some incredible tyres. We suggest reading the reviews and finding the tyre with the balance of performance that suits your driving style and usage.

    Given 52% while driving a Honda CR V III (225/65 R17) on mostly motorways for 69 easy going miles
    1. grip wet and dry road performance are good
    2. The performance of the fuel in the 90KM / H no significant difference can reach 16KM / L, but in the dry ground , the speed at 110KM fuel consumption is reduced to less than the speed 12KM / L, wet pavement performance is up to 15KM / L, the overall fuel consumption for the project performance is not satisfactory. increase fuel consumption by 25%.
    3. In the comfort of the project , there is no better than the original tire performance , but it is easy to noisy vibration .
    4. The wear rate performance is good, but because of an increase of 25 % of fuel consumption , will spend more money on the part of oil resources .

    Overall, if both run on a wet road is safe and appropriate , on a dry road surface noise is adversely on fuel consumption and comfort

    Given 63% while driving a Nissan Xterra (265/75 R16) on mostly town for 200 spirited miles
    Just bought these in the Mid East for a Nissan Xterra Off-Road. Was looking for something more off-road oriented but they hardly ever have this size in stock here. Since rain was forecast for the first time in the year and the wife and kid were using this car I pulled the trigger and bought these. Previous tyres were downright dangerous on wet, genuinely like driving on slush at best. (Dunlop Grandtrek AT22). Comfort is okay, its somewhat better than previously but with this size sidewall and being a soft sidewall I was expecting more comfort. Noise levels seem to be a bit higher actually. Grip levels are massively increased though. The rain didn't show up so haven't tried that yet, but on dry roads now, I haven't found the limit yet as I'm now rather concerned about accidentally rolling the car since the car isn't losing its grip when it formerly would but instead has a massive amount of body roll (it's a tall 4x4). I'm sure I'll get the courage eventually.. Previously though I'd be dramatically squealing around with loads of understeer and no worries about rolling the car. Also no longer able to spin the rear tyres from a standing start. Previously that would happen anytime I applied full throttle. Both with and without holding the brakes. Looking forward to the expected improvements in the wet, that was the main purpose of the purchase of these tyres anyway. No off-road experience yet, will update when I've tried in the soft sand. Worried about the soft sidewalls though with low pressures, both for a puncture or the tyre slipping off the rim. Will post a new review when I've had more time to thoroughly test them.

    These tyres are good on the road, they track very well with no road noise, the only downside for me is that i find the ride a bit hard on the road. Off road these tyres are not very good as you would expect, they have not got the tread for mud, but saying that as long as you don't do serious off roading you will never get stuck if your vehicle is 4x4 anyway.

    Nice ride. Lots of dry and wet grip. Noise is OK, as well as consumption. Replaced Continental's and these offer more grip and better road response.

    Given 81% while driving a Nissan patrool y61 (265/70 R18) on mostly motorways for 38,000 spirited miles
    Changed to Goodyear EfficientGrip SUV from the Dunlop Grandtrek AT22. I could not believe how different the car drove. With the Dunlop's I always had problems, especially on wet roads. The Goodyear's were good in dry and wet and more comfortable. I had more confidence driving the car, as the tires gave me a better feeling of the car, on wet and dry surface. One time while raining, on the motorway the car in front of me started rotating while breaking due to the slippery pavement and I could break without problems. I didn't hit the car, but the car that followed me hit me as it also couldn't stop due to the slippery road. The only downside is that the tire lasted only 38,000 miles (61,000 Km). I went to change the tires and wanted to fit the same, but unfortunately they weren't available. I fitted the Michelin Primacy SUV instead as they were recommended. Let see if they will be as good as the Goodyear's.

    Great all round tyre really. Not the sportiest but decent road-holding and not too squidgy. Good wet grip too, and also performed well in light snow. Noise and comfort seem particularly good. They are a better in every department than the Continental 4x4 contact that they replaced, including fuel efficiency. Not had long enough to comment on wear yet.

    This is the third car I've fitted with these tyres (2 Volvo Estates and a RAV4) and have now driven a total of over 100,000 miles on them. I appreciate we don't get extremes of weather here in the UK, but I've never had a grip problem on the wet roads of North Wales and I don't find the road noise excessive either (despite some reviews mentioning noise). I am comfortable in recommending these tyres for everyday driving during all 4 seasons.

    I have done nearly 56,000km with this set (3 years), every 20,000km I put the front-back and vice versa. Very happy with dry and wet grip, snow grip is relatively poor. They are getting worn now so next set will be an all weather set, since I seldom need the snow grip.

    I have had the New Ford Everest fitted with these tyres and i have some concerns. The car is sitting on 42000 km and they are begining to flake. The handling on the car does concerns me as the grip is not what I expected. Noise level is good, very comfortable drive but on turning corners or slightly curved roads i am careful. I find the rubber compound to soft for the vehicle and as mentioned earlier, flaking is slight.

    Tire chunking happened after 3 years.

    Road noise became apparent after 2 years.

    Grip is still good for both wet and dry road conditions.

    Good tires but would be wary because of the tire chunking/flaking issue. (Could be user-induced but Im not quite aure)
