Goodyear light truck tire lasts 21,000km longer than competitors

Independent tests conducted by auditing body Dekra, comparing the milage capabilities of Goodyear’s new EfficientGrip Cargo light truck tire against two of its competitors, have shown the tire to outperform the others by an average of 21,475km. The tests were carried out in 2016 on a 215/65 R16C 109/107T size tire on a front wheel drive van.

In the development of the EfficientGrip Cargo, Goodyear engineers made technical improvements to previous tire compounds for increased wear resistance on abrasive surfaces. They have also enhanced tire construction with a higher volume of rubber, to optimize solid rib stiffness, contributing to increased tire life, as well as providing improvements in handling.
