  • Goodyear kick-starts the summer tire season with a number one ranking and ‘exemplary’ distinction for its latest Ultra-High Performance Tire in the leading German Magazine Auto Bild allrad. [1]
  • The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 performed especially well on dry and wet surfaces, was described as a well-balanced road tire and was lauded for its high performance with regards to aquaplaning. 

Goodyear’s ultra-high-performance tire was titled best performing tire overall by Auto Bild allrad. After scoring consistently high in the different tests the tire earned praise as a very well-balanced road tire. When braking on dry, the tire took second place with a braking distance of 34.8 meters from a starting speed of 100 km/h on dry; on wet, the tire also came in second with a braking distance of 47.7 meters from 100 km/h. 

The tire also performed well in the aquaplaning test, being dubbed ‘brilliant’ on a wet road, coming in second both on a straight road and in a curve. As far as gravel aquaplaning is concerned, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 came in third.

Strong grip

These results are exemplary for the key features and benefits of the tire. The Active Braking Technology increases the contact surface and grip when braking, which allows for a shorter  braking distance. Additionally, the new grip booster compound and the adhesive resin for stickiness deliver strong grip for shorter  braking and handling. The new reinforced construction delivers a stronger, lightweight tire that contributes to improved handling, cornering performance, tread wear and fuel efficiency. [2]
