Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2 tires on the BMW iX

BMW finally made the decision of which will be the official tires of the new BMW iX, the electric SAV (Sport Activity Vehicle) of the German firm, which will be the EfficientGrip Performance 2 of the Goodyear firm.

According to the North American tire company, this tire «It offers drivers short stopping distances on dry and wet roads, as well as handling and grip in a variety of conditions. Like the BMW iX, EfficientGrip Performance 2 is designed to maximize range and is capable of 20% further travel than the next best tested competitor, as well as 50% further than its predecessor.»

20% more is the equivalent of approximately 11,000 km more mileage offered by the next best tested competitor and 50% more than the previous generation, EfficientGrip Performance (205/55 R16 91V). The latter was tested in a VW Golf 7, on open roads in Luxembourg and France. If you want to see the complete report of the tests, you can do it in the goodyear site.
