The Efficient Grip RunOnFlat is Goodyear’s Grand Touring Summer tire featuring temporary self-supporting run-flat mobility for a distance of 50 miles at up to 50 mph, even after a puncture has allowed complete air pressure loss. Designed for Original Equipment use on many Audi, BMW, Infiniti, Mercedes-Benz, Mercedes-Maybach, MINI and Rolls-Royce vehicles, the Efficient Grip RunOnFlat is tuned to meet the requirements of some of the world’s most prestigious vehicles. Like all summer tires, the Efficient Grip RunOnFlat is not intended to be serviced, stored nor driven in near- and below-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.

The Efficient Grip RunOnFlat utilizes an optimized silica, summer-only tread compound molded into an asymmetric design that is tuned to deliver a smooth, quiet ride and responsive handling. The addition of silica in the tread compound provides enhanced wet traction, while the four wide, circumferential grooves evacuate water from beneath the contact patch to improve hydroplaning resistance.

Internal construction of the Efficient GripRunonFlat includes two wide, steel belts with a spirally wrapped polyamide reinforcement to add durability and high speed capabilities. The tire’s reinforced sidewalls are capable of temporarily supporting the weight of the vehicle, even without any internal air pressure. The casing material and ply count differ from size to size based on the needs of each vehicle manufacturer, but include single- or two-ply rayon cord or single-ply polyester cord.

NOTE: Run-flat tires are only recommended for vehicles that are originally equipped with self-supporting run-flat tires and equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system.

Though they cannot be labeled as run-flat tires, tires branded with “MOExtended” or “MOE” on their sidewalls offer run-flat-like characteristics by delivering limited temporary extended mobility after a puncture results in complete loss of air pressure. Because MOExtended or MOE tires do not have the same speed and distance endurance of conventional run-flat tires, they should not be substituted in any situation where a conventional run-flat tire is required. To confirm what your vehicle needs, check our Original Equipment tire listing for your year, make and model or see your vehicle owner’s manual.

Goodyear’s warranty states: “Ultra high-performance summer tires are not recommended for winter use, and tread or shoulder cracking on those tires resulting from winter use will not be covered under our warranty.” While compound cracking is not a warrantable condition because it occurs as the result of improper use or storage, tires exhibiting compound cracking must be replaced.


  1. The tire is just insanely unreliable. My car is about 2 weeks old, driven for more than just 2000kms (highway and city), went thru a couple of normal potholes, and recently got a cut through the sidewall. the cut was so fine that it was almost unnoticable. I went to BMW to file a complain, as it was a possible defect even before they handed over to me. But turned out the Goodyear engineer reporting that the cut was due to some sharp object. All I can say is that this was a bad choice by BMW, and the tires are just like crap having read the reviews here. I do not recommend this tire, and BMW please do your research prior to selecting for your models. I am replacing to a different brand or normal (non run flat) ones as the time comes.

  2. I purchased these tires as an alternative to the OEM Goodyear RS-A EMT tires. The Efficiend Grip Run on Flat (ROF) tires offer better handling and better cornering than the OEM tires. The Efficient Grip tires run cooler than the OEM tires as well and that should help to extend the life of these tires. I’ll write a review of these tires after I make it through the Utah winter! The tread design appears to offer better traction in snow than the OEM tires, but I will put them to the test. I only got about 18,000 miles on the OEM tires when the tread started to separate from the sidewall on the front tires. For a vehicle that can exceed 150 mph, that does not inspire confidence. If you are running your Jeep SRT8 on the OEM tires, I suggest switching to the Goodyear Efficient Grip ROF tires. I feel much safer running the Jeep up to the limit with these tires.
