The latest Goodyear Eagle F1 Series of ultra high-performance and tyres enable owners of luxury, super sports and supercars to truly enjoy their machines.
What makes a car truly awesome to drive?
Many enthusiasts would answer: “The power!” or “The acceleration!” Others might opine that it is the handling – the ability to carve through both slow and fast corners – without breaking a sweat.
A car’s output, nimbleness and yes, noise, are all important. They are what make driving such an enjoyable and addictive experience.
And the key ingredient binding all of these together is the tyre.
Without the right tyres, none of these traits would matter, for performance cannot be transferred onto the road.
Goodyear’s new range of Eagle F1 Series ultra high-performance tyres are exactly what drivers need.
The Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5, for instance, is aimed at drivers of cars such as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and E-Class, and BMW 3 Series, 4 Series and 5 Series models.
The Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 is an excellent all-rounder. It delivers luxurious comfort without any compromise to handling. The tyre’s Power Cushion Technology and reduced flex in the tread result in the precise transmission of power to the road, along with crisp and precise turn-ins.
Meanwhile, Impulse Control and ActiveBraking reduce stopping distances in both dry and wet conditions. In fact, compared to its predecessor, braking distances for the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 are an astonishing 4% and 7% shorter in wet and dry conditions respectively.
Drivers of more powerful machines, such as the Porsche 911, Mercedes-AMG C63, BMW M3 and VW Golf GTI will appreciate the Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport, the first of the brand’s three ultra ultra high-performance tyres.
The Eagle F1 Supersport enables drivers to push their automobiles harder, thanks to features that include Powerline Cover, which prevents tread deformation at high speeds, and Power Shoulder, which features a closed outside pattern for maximum grip when cornering.
Taking this performance up by another notch is the Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport R.
In addition to the aforementioned technologies, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport R delivers even higher levels of grip and steering precision, through the use of an even higher-friction compound and an optimised footprint for more even pressure distribution.
To further boost cornering abilities, there are bridges in the tread pattern’s inner groove, which reduce the deformation of the blocks when the tyres are subjected to extreme cornering forces. Faster cornering speeds mean cornering manoeuvres now also become overtaking opportunities.
Now, drivers who need a tyre that delivers the goods on both road and racetrack should look no further than the Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport RS – the pinnacle tyre in Goodyear’s Supersport lineup.
The Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport RS is the brand’s most race-focussed tyre. It is the tyre for track days, yet remains road legal.
It is the only tyre in the Eagle F1 range utilising the RacePro compound – the same resin used in motorsports for the ultimate in high-speed grip.
Innovative technologies include a bridged first-groove to maintain balance when cornering, and superior high-speed stability with less deformable tread.
Now, the most important thing about all these ultra high-performance and ultra ultra high-performance tyres is that are proven performers.
Porsche has chosen the Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport RS as its track day tyre for the 911 GT2 RS and 911 GT3 RS.
The Goodyear Eagle F1 range of tyres have been taking top podium spots in third-party consumer tests by tyre experts, such as Auto Bild. Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres transfer car’s performance to the road, while putting a smile on the driver’s face.
