These tyres are really awesome.
I bought a set of Goodyear efficient grips for my MQ Triton back in May 2019. I've done 10,000kms on them and they are still going great. They create a slightly different noise to the Bridgestone ones the vehicle came with but this is not an issue and you have to listen out for it the noise is that faint.
They are grippy in wet or dry conditions. They make the vehicle grip very well in cornering. Breaking is also very good. They also appear to wear quite well. I am very hard on my tyres because I corner too aggressively. The shoulders at 10,000 do not have any noticeable wear.
I would recommend these tyres to anyone with a Triton like mine who does not go off road.
Brilliant Tyres For SUV
I put these tyres on my Ford Kuga in November 2015, they are now just over 2 years old with just over 25,000km on them. Got them rotated / balanced etc today and the shop reckons they are only about half worn. We do about 80% bitumen / 20% dirt, but that dirt portion is on some rather bad roads and they have survived without damage from sharp rocks or any punctures. The durability is exceptional!
I expected that with the increased tyre life, there would be a compromise on grip / handling etc, but this is not the case. Grip on both bitumen and...dirt is good, and grip in the wet is great - it is very reassuring to drive on these tyres. The initial purchase price is slightly higher than the competitors, but that is well worth it when you consider the value for money. I like these tyres so much, I insisted that my daughter buy them for her car - and offered to pay the difference between the cheap tyres she was going to get and the Efficientgrips.
Purchased in November 2015 at Beaurepairs.
I had a set of the Efficient Grip SUV tyres fitted to our Subaru Forester before setting off on a trip around Australia. They replaced the original Yokohama tyres that had done about 47,000 Klms.
After 9 weeks and 16,000+klms, I'm very happy with the tyres.
The Efficient Grip tyres are quiet on the road and handled all weather and road conditions very well with no issues. The roads we drove were highways (NT speeds), back roads and national park unsealed roads (gravel, rocks, dirt, sand, corrugations etc. but no challenging 4WD stuff).
A...t the moment they're hardly showing any wear and I'd happily fit another set of these tyres when these finally wear out. 4/3/19 Update; I'm just about to replace the tyres after 45,000 kms. They may have a couple more thousand kms or so but time to get another set. I'll buy these again.
Purchased in May 2017 for A$960.00.

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.
