Goodyear tyres have a new Goodyear Efficient Grip touring tyre

We at Pellon tyres here in Halifax sell many Goodyear tyres. Consequently, the Goodyear efficient-grip . Hence, is one of the most popular Goodyear tyres . As a result that we have had the pleasure to fit.

Over the years we have fitted many Goodyear tyre products . Going right back to the  G8 and the G800+s.

goodyear efficient grip

Jackie Stewart was a Goodyear tyre tester and a strong advocate of the Goodyear brand.

Of course, these tyres were a very important step. Thus, in the development of car tyres . Aiding development for the cars of each period of time.

Goodyear Efficient Grip

As a result, car designs and mechanical up-grades . Have always had to kept up with by the tyre manufacturers. I remember the Goodyear Grandprix-S . Arriving, when front wheel drive cars were first hitting our roads. Tyre tread design and construction were changing all the time. Hence, to keep with the development of the modern cars.

This new Goodyear Efficient Grip is no exception, except this time the emphasis is on much greener and fuel efficient tyres. This new tyre a further development of the Goodyear Efficient Grip will be no different to the tyres produced in the past by this excellent tyre company, Goodyear tyres.

For the best  fuel efficiency for your car, it is very important that your make sure that your tyres are properly inflated. When you run your car on low tyre pressure it increases the rolling resistance and also has an effect on the wet grip performance. The weight of your car and your personal driving style can also make a big difference, we have all seen the “boy racer”, who flies everywhere at 100 miles an hour. Well little does he know it, but he will be using twice the amount of fuel as the steady driver who probably sticks to the speed limits  . The sensible person is said to be more aware of “Energy-efficient driving”, or “Eco-driving” which can significantly bring down your fuel consumption.

Goodyear Efficient Grip-What is the reason for a tyre to be more fuel-efficient?

To put it simply, a  fuel-efficient tyre requires less energy to roll forward. The easier it is for the tyre to roll then it has a lower demand for fuel, since a lesser amount of energy is wasted on friction and heat from the road surface. This is usually referred to as  tyres with ‘low rolling resistance’, which  means the same thing.

How do the  fuel efficiency labels show thet tyres rating ?

  • Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a color-coded scale.
    A (green) is the  highest fuel  rating efficiency
    G (red) is the  lowest fuel rating efficiency
    and the Rating of D is not used for passenger cars.
Goodyear Efficient Grip-What do these  ratings mean?
  • They mean fuel savings for the motorist, the difference between an A rating and a G rating can mean a lowering of fuel consumption by up to 7.5%. To put this in practical terms, buying an A-rated tyre instead of G-rated one could mean that you save  more than 6 litres of fuel every 1000 kilometers. And at an average cost of petrol at say £1.50 per liter, you could end up saving yourself more than £300 over the life of the tyres. These figures are on the Goodyear European web site and state that they based on an average cars consumption of 8 liters/100km, at a fuel price of £1.50/liter, and an average tyre mileage of 35,000 km.

Goodyear Greener Tyres-Introducing low rolling resistance tyres-A greener direction for Goodyear

beneficial . As a result, to the new families of electric vehicles.For sale in the car market of today.

One of the main things that the Goodyear Greener Tyres company  (along with other tyre makers) is the development of the low rolling resistance ones. The latest one out now is the Goodyear Greener Tyres Efficient-Grip, which is a great improvement for the reduction of road noise and better wet grip on cornering.

This new tyre is expected to be used on the new generation of  Run-flats, to be used on electric vehicles. In my opinion the new ones will have to come in taller (overall diameter) and thinner,  a near reversal of the older trend of having them as fat as possible. Sizes like 235/35×18 may become a thing of the past on the electric and hybrid cars, reverting back to sizes like 125×15 but constructed with different materials may become common on these vehicles.

This type of tyre is the type that gave the Citroen 2CV, 60 mpg all those years ago and I am sure that this has not gone unnoticed to the Goodyear and Michelin companies. Therefore many of today’s first line tyre manufacturers are striving to make the same goal? a much more environmental tyre product.

GOODYEAR TYRES PROVE THE POINT ?

This is a great time of my life to be involved in the motor industry. Hardly a day goes by without some sort of new invention or improvements to the products that are been developed and no more so than in the tyre industry. All these developments are in my opinion due to to improvements in computer designs helping tyre developers to create new products out of new materials to help with the relentless charge towards lowering greenhouse gasses.

These new  Goodyear Fuel Savers were tested by Autocar Magazineusing a Citroen Picasso as the test car, using the Goodyear Fuel Savers Efficient Grip tyres. The test were carried out over a long period of time using normal driving conditions on normal roads and not on test tracks, to enable a true and realistic result. The Picasso was a bog standard car and came up with a saving of 2% over the total period of testing, a significant achievement from Goodyear Fuel Savers, reducing both fuel consumption and reducing greenhouse gasses. Most companies in this sector are developing newer products that are more beneficial to the environment.Michelin and Continental are both producing greener products with far better rolling resistance figures, helping the vehicles go further with less resistance between the tyre and the road thus reducing fuel consumption.

GOODYEAR TYRES Early Days-How things were In the nineties.

 Post Updated 28th Dec 2013

GOODYEAR TYRES Early Days; no longer number one in 1990.

In 1990 the French company Michelin tyres bought out another tyre company called BF Goodrich tyres of America.This was a good capture for Michelin because Goodrich had previously merged with Uniroyal tyres.

 

In the GOODYEAR TYRES Early Days, Firestone tyres and General tyres had suffered sales volumes at the hand of Goodyear tyres dominance in the radial tyre market and Firestone were taken over by Bridgestone tyres of

GOODYEAR TYRES Early Days

The famous Goodyear Eagle emblem

Japan and General  were bought out by Continental  of Germany. These bigger companies were now at the same size as Goodyear tyres and the buy out moves started to have an impact on Goodyears sales. GOODYEAR TYRES Early Days had their fingers in other non-tyre ventures, one of which was The “All American Pipeline”. This company was producing operational losses and was costing Goodyear over $3 billion of debt, but Goodyear tyres were slow to react and make changes , resulting in the appointment of a Mr C Gault as chairman of the company.

Goodyear tyres were now suffering and between 1989 and 1991 they shed over 12000 jobs, 10% of its workforce. The redundancies came mainly from the white collar section of the workforce, The giant tyre company also set about restructuring its factories with some closures and others being modified, this reconstruction of the company was estimated to save Goodyear tyres over $250 million a year in savings.

Goodyear tyres believed adamantly in the research and development program and kept up the spending on new tyre development, something that GOODYEAR TYRES Early Days were very passionate about. The company started to bring out new products on the back of this development and new tyres began to emerge, the first ones been the The Goodyear Eagle GT and the Eagle GA. I remember these tyre well, they were modeled for the more luxury cars in the early nineties. These new products helped Goodyear tyres to regain the market share that they lost to the Michelin group and in 1992 they restructured their debts to a more manageable amount of around $1.5 billion.

 Another great new tyre to come out of Goodyear tyres in the early nineties

 was the “Aqua tread”, which was an all season tyre sold around the World and will be remembered by older drivers. The new tyre was launched simultaneously across the globe. I remember attending the Goodyear tyres launch on their test track in Luxembourg and the tyre became a huge success.GOODYEAR TYRES Early Days

 Pellon Tyres and Autocentre are very impressed with this new product. Which is the latest from Goodyears long line of great tyres? Naturally, will prove another Goodyear Tyres winner.

Goodyear started out making one of the first steel radials, the “G8”.Consequently, this was an effort to catch up with another leading tyre manufacturer.As expected, Goodyear began having problems. Thus, in the structure of the steel belt. Indeed had many tyre failures. Thus causing many tyres to be recalled. Because of faults on the protective coating of the steel belt wires.

Goodyear overcame the problems. As a result, the next generation from Goodyear was the G800+s. So, also this tyre had teething problems.But these were overcome. Goodyear regained its reputation as a world leader in the manufacturing. As expected, this was followed by many other tyre types. All with improvements in tread design. Indeed Goodyear was the first to create tread patterns.Hence to combat aquaplaning, on wet roads.

Aquaplaning is the thin layer of water. That forms between the tyre tread and the road surface.Thus causing the driver to lose control of his vehicle.Especially in very wet driving conditions. Goodyears  NCT range was designed to combat aquaplaning. Made public with a massive, extensive advertising campaign. Asa result, Goodyear were the leaders in World tyre sales.

New models followed.So, the next series were to be the Eagle range.Therefore, there is no doubt that Goodyear have always been at the forefront of tyre technology and innovation. They are World leaders all the way in tyre design.Thus, keeping up with the new speed and road conditions.Of course, that confronted designers all over the world.
