The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 has a unique position in the sports tyre universe. Goodyear has always preferred to highlight its versatility and safety in all circumstances, in a segment where pure dry performance is often the first argument put forward.

Its overall homogeneity has allowed it to take top spot in many tyre comparison tests and be approved as original equipment on several sports cars (Porsche 911, Maserati Quattroporte, Clio 4 RS, Ferrari California, etc.).

Therefore, the launch of the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 is very important for Goodyear and many drivers are also eagerly awaiting it.

Objectives remain the same

Like its predecessors, the Asymmetric 3 claims to be a front runner in the UHP (Ultra High Performance) tyre segment by offering performances that are expected to be significantly better.

In particular, Goodyear says that this tyre, with its new improved tread compound and various new technologies, delivers better grip, shorter braking distances and is more responsive on wet and dry roads.

The Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 will be launched on the market in January 2016 and will be available in 41 sizes (17 to 20 inches) by the month of March.

We’ll be back very soon with a complete and in-depth test of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4's latest rival.
