Had these fitted to my 2010 Kia Grand Carnival in Feb 15 - immediately improved the handling and feel compared to the Michelin latitude tour. I have done 55000 on them mainly round town and are excellent in wet or dry - they have around 5mm left on them and will look to replace with same towards end of 2017 - with 4 kids in the car - wouldn't fit any other tyre
best tyre I have ever had in the upper mid range price
got Goodyear Efficiency Grip size 215 60 16 for my AUIII Falcon sedan
firstly, made my car look better > my previous tyres were good year Eagle NCT 5's (they were very good but the Efficiency Grip are even better- made my old car look more soild and newer) _ compared to other tyres on my car the Efficiency grip filled out the spaces in the wheel rim area under the wheel guards. I tried going to 225 width but my guards were not big enough for that size, as the tyre seller said they would rub on the guards when turning, so in the 215 size, the E...
great tyres at a reasonable price
i had 4 fitted on a holden caprice. I would consider as good as the Bridgestone and I tow a heavy boat.
They offer excellent grip good handling and long lasting
They are a quiet tyre and will buy again
I do a lot of country driving and they have lasted even on gravel roads.
I am not an agressive driver and sit on speed limit.
Made my car new again.
Read many reviews about various tyres. The usual differences of opinion but these tyres seemed to have more positive reviews. My Mazda Tribute 2006 model which I bought quickly a bit over a year ago had bad body roll and was noisy on the road. Decided to keep running tyres for another 20000km before changing. Have been driving since 1976 so have bought many new tyres. None has made such a significant change to a car. The body roll has gone, the noise has gone. I feel like I am driving a new sedan instead of a 10 year old SUV. Beaurepairs went ...out of their way to service me as I just turned up without an appointment. Will definitely be a repeat buyer of this product at this early stage but will update again in the future with a couple of years driving.
Capable, quiet and durable tyre.
I've had these tyres on a Forester S Edition for 7000ks now 225/60/17.
Straight away they are noticeably quieter than the OEM G95 Yokohamas.
Done some dirt/rocky trail driving without punctures.
Grip in the wet and dry has been great with no issues.
Showing minimal wear with plenty/heaps of tread offered from new.
After lots of research I bought these tyres and are very pleased with them so far.
Second worst tyre I've ever owned, the worst being retreads I got for free.
I am amazed that this is going to be the only bad review so far on this site for these...
On a Nissan Xtrail. Paid $220 AUD a corner. Supposedly a 90/10 road off road tyre. They are the second worst tyre I've ever owned, the worst being retreads I got for free. Within 5,000 kms they were chewed out from going on a 1km stretch of gravel once a month.
Goodyear shop advised they shouldn't be used on gravel...even though they sold them to me for that purpose. They lasted 55,000 kms in total. They were quiet for the first ~10,000 and got progre...
great tyre and impressive in wet
Tyres fitted to a Kia 3.8 Grand Carnival FWD and have been very happy with the grip in the dry and wet. Also impressed by grip on dirt and gravel roads. This van is quite powerful at 185kws and will spin tyres very easiky however these tyres transformed the van in the wet. The previous Maxxis 761s were so bad in the wet (they would spin in the wet when changing into 2nd gear in the wet with little provacation) that I got rid of them at 10000kms.
I would definitely consider getting them again at replacement time.
Will BUY again for sure
Fantastic tyre. Got double the original (26k) and am now on over 60000. Plus they were at least $200 cheaper than original ripp off. The tyre on the road is smove and very quiet with grip that feels secure. Its so quiet I can hear the noise over the side mirror (very noticeable at how quiet the tyre is compared to the original). Looking at another 10k before i need to replace them. Also they have a corner guard so when you hit that gutter there's no scratching of the wheels. They were new in 2012 but im sure glad i got them. Size i got for Grande was 245/55r19.
Update just sold my car with these Tyres and i got up to 73000km on them
Great mileage, improved fuel economy and low noise
Fitted on recommendation of Beaurepaires at 95000 km and now have done 155000 km. OEM gave me 60000 km and got 35000 out of very expensive Dunlops, these are a dream and after 60000km still have heaps of tread left, won't be needing to replace for some time yet. Fuel economy improved from an avg of 7.7 to 7.3 lt per 100 km and road noise is still low. Highly recommended!
Very quiet and smooth
Had four of these fitted to my Outlander (size 215 70 R16) at the beginning of December 2015. I've only done about 2,500km since then, mainly bitumen and some beach driving, and these tyres are extremely quiet and smooth. Early days yet, but very happy so far. The cherry on top was the amazing price and service I got from Kmart Auto Tyres.
Excellent grip on all suface
Fitted 4X new 265/60/18 tires on Pajero and done a mixed surface of tarmac, wet, gravel almost 5.500Kms. Excellent quality for value. very happy with wet performance and no punctures on gravel (lots of sharp stones) even tried some 4x4 (not serious) well managed all times. Tread stiil looking like new so hopefully I will get good milage out of it. Low noice and slighly better fuel economy compare to previous AT tires. Overall an excellent highway tire.
Amazing difference in handling and noise.
On a 2012 Toyota RAV LImited w/AWD. Original factory set (Bridgestone) were worn at 40K. Got a set of these for a replacement on the recommendation of the local Beaurepaires. Even my 8 year old daughter noticed the difference in noise. No more roar on the highway. The sidewalls are a lot sturdier in this tyre. I don't get the body roll in the turns like i did with the factory set. Handling is an amazing difference, much less mushy. Haven't noticed much in petrol efficiency, but don't track that closely enough to gauge.
Great comparing to Coopers!
Much better grip than Cooper CS-5 tires I had before. Especially when wet the difference is incredible, I would say it gives 50% more grip! We did some 5000 km of gravel roads with sharp rocks and no puncture so far. Good tire even it is quite expensive in Australia.
8000km and very happy with this tyre. My wife's Nissan xtrail is a different car on the road with these tyres over the original dunlops. Great grip wet and dry and very quiet. Too early to tell but no early signs of wear.
Glad to see the tyre is available in my car size...Ford ranger...265/65/17 so in another 5k I'll def be buying these efficientgrips.
Grip, quite and wet weather performance.
Questions & Answers
How can I tell the difference between the standard EFFICIENT GRIP and the EAGLE EFFICIENTGRIP?
I can't see anything on the tyre wall to show there EAGLES.
I'm thinking of fitting 4 of these Tyres on my 2014 Subaru Tribeca (7 seater SUV) by the 31.12.17. Can you please advise on how much each Tyre is worth & best recommended outlet around Blacktown area?
Hi Maj, My 4 tyres all fitted,balanced and old ones disposed cost $960 in May 2017. I got mine at a Goodyear Tyre Centre. Can't help you with your Blacktown area but I was happy with my local Goodyear outlet. I'm still happy with the tyres and they're wearing well.
Thank you kindly for ur reply. I'm glad that ur satisfied with those tyres. I've just fitted 4 of the Efficient Grip Performance - SUV Tyres from "Good Year Auto Care" @ Blacktown for only $285 each (see Mgr: Hong or Pravin). Where as Beaurepairs @ Penrith wanted to charge me $410. each for the exact same tyre. Pays to shop around. Thank you again,
