The fuel-saving tyre built for today’s family and city cars
The DuraGrip is a long-lasting tyre that saves fuel without sacrificing performance. If you drive, you must be concerned with rising fuel prices, as well as the wear and tear on your tyres. Goodyear's DuraGrip tyre specifically meets the needs of today's city and family cars, reducing the amount of fuel that your car consumes.
Greater fuel efficiency and mileage
High aquaplaning resistance
High aquaplaning resistance. The DuraGrip’s tread is designed to quickly disperse water in wet conditions, reducing the risk of aquaplaning. Drive with confidence on rain-soaked roads. The asymmetric tread contains an open tread zone that quickly sheds water, reducing the risk of aquaplaning.
Quiet ride. Enjoy a quiet, comfortable ride. The DuraGrip features closed grooves and continuous ribs on its outer zone, which help to reduce noise levels.
Greater fuel efficiency and mileage. Get more value from your tyre. The DuraGrip is designed so that pressure is evenly distributed across the tyre footprint, resulting in better fuel efficiency and a longer lasting tyre. Reduce your fuel costs with the tyre that rolls easily. The DuraGrip's equalised pressure distribution results in better fuel efficiency and a longer lasting tyre.
Responsive handling. Goodyear’s 3D-BIS Technology® increases rubber-to-road contact for improved handling. The asymmetric tread pattern features a stiff shoulder area to help you corner with confidence. Experience responsive handling with Goodyear’s 3D-BIS Technology®, which uses interlocking blades to increase rubber-to-road contact. A stiff shoulder area improves control when cornering.

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

24.09.2015 from Denise Very quiet, fantastic grip on corners/wet.
10.09.2015 from Neil B Quiet, economical on fuel and inexpensive to buy.
16.05.2013 from Garry H A very good tyre for the money. Seems to be lasting much better and quieter than P6000s fitted before with just as much grip.
03.05.2009 from Alexios Koumouris Very good grip at dry, pretty fair grip at wet but too noisy.
