- Braking in the wet is amazing
- Tread wear is minimal
- Grip in dry conditions is superb
- Delivers a high-level of comfort
- Traction drops off in cold weather
Are you looking for a great all-round practical summer tire for daily driving?
Well then let me introduce the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2. The ideal choice of tire for those who wish to increase the limiting capabilities of their car, while still maintaining an acceptable level of comfort.
The Asymmetric 2’s strength lies in its predictability. Designed to deliver improved handling and steering response, with these tires on, your car will effectively and reliably respond to any input in an instant. Giving you a sixth-sense feel for the road to anticipate whatever comes your way.
The Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric’s tread combines Goodyear race traction resins for dry grip with high surface silica for wet traction and molds it into an asymmetric design(hence the name). With a wide, solid outboard shoulder to increase cornering traction efficiency, and continuous notched inboard ribs to improve high-speed stability.
In dry weather, the grip is nothing short of fantastic, even when pushing your car to the edge.
Braking in the wet is especially good
The Asymmetric 2 utilizes Goodyear’s Active Braking Technology to enhance stopping performance on wet roads. Because the tread blocks on these tires are specially designed with a round, tapered edge, when you brake, the load is transferred to whichever blocks are in contact with the pavement. So the tread blocks actually flatten themselves upon the road to increase the contact patch with the road surface for better wet traction that helps bring your car to an immediate halt when necessary.
So unless you hit the roads driving like an absolute maniac, you won’t feel any overwhelming sense of unease in the rain.
However, traction does begin to drop off in cold weather, so take it easy and don’t push it if the temperature drops significantly. And no matter what you do, keep out of the snow.
Goodyear states in their warranty that these tires are not recommended for winter use, and so any tread or shoulder cracking on these tires as a direct result of winter use will not be covered.
For a high-performance tire, tread wear is minimal.
Goodyear’s fuel saving technology means there’s less material in the tire and so there’s less heat generation, which leads to lower rolling resistance for a longer tread life. If you put a set of Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 on your car, expect them to stick around for awhile.
The main advantage the Goodyear Asymmetric Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 has over the competition is a combination of high traction, an enviable level of comfort, and a surprisingly long tread life. And while other tires on the market might be just as good, they’ll most certainly cost you more money.
