The Asymetric Eagle F1 has been developed specifically with high performance, luxury cars in mind. There cars demand a tyre that's responsive to their predictive safety systems and keeps their raw power under control. Step forward with the Goodyear Eagle F1, a tyre that balacnes performance and control in equal measure. High performance vehicle owners still look for safety first when it comes to choosing a tyre, closely followed by performance and comfort. So the challenge to our engineers was to complement the predictive safety systems found on modern cars and develop a tyre that could control these powerful modern vehicles without loss of performance. The result was the Eagle F1 Asymmetric. Combining our revolutionary Active Cornergrip Technology and Racing Compound derivatives, the pressure is evenly distributed when cornering at high speeds, meaning more contact patch grips the road more of the time.
The Eagle F1 Asymmetric benefits:
High performance, extreme safety
Resistance to aquaplaning, wet handling
Better tracking and grip in wet and dry conditions
Ensuring a smoother, quieter ride
Revolutionary new asymmetric tread design and construction
Even pressure distribution and increased road contact
Inter tread zone compression
Optimised pitching sequence
Utilising all the latest Goodyear technology
Enhanced cornering and grip
More tread in contact with the road
Enhanced wet handling
Helps reduce aquarplaning
A quiteter, smoother ride
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.

01.05.2019fromKeith These tyres replaced Pirelli P zero's so it was a hard act to follow but the only fault I noticed was on fast damp corners they do not hold on just as well
01.10.2018fromRobin Hook First thing to say is I have MO's fitted.
Tried these on my Stage 3 TT RS - some commuting some shall we say v.spirited driving, grip is excellent, wet & dry but of course the awd helps , as good as others I've tried. what is surprising to me is the wear rate they are great, i'm not expecting zillions of miles but to compare I have a mondeo diesel with Michelins doing same commute and only about 20% tops better. Car's a bit noisy so can't comment about road noise but again no more/less noisy than other premiums.
20.02.2013fromJ Robinson Definitely my first choice for summer tyres after trying several premium brands. Excellent grip in dry and wet which inspires confidence for spirited driving in all driving conditions.
03.07.2012fromPaul Faulkner very happy with these tyres
