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, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

24.09.2015fromDenise Very quiet, fantastic grip on corners/wet.
10.09.2015fromNeil B Quiet, economical on fuel and inexpensive to buy.
16.05.2013fromGarry 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.
03.05.2009fromAlexios Koumouris Very good grip at dry, pretty fair grip at wet but too noisy.
