Tyre Test Highlights

2015 AZ 225/40 R18 Summer Tyre Test - 1st of 14 tyres

  • Positive - High traction, good lateral support and braking on wet surfaces, short braking distances and high level of safety in the dry, low rolling resistance

2013 Auto Review Performance Summer Tyre Test - 1st of 9 tyres

  • Positive - Grip on wet and dry roads, high resistance to aquaplaning, comfortable, quiet
  • Negative - Average handling on wet roads
  • Overall - The main advantage the Goodyear has is a combination of high-traction and an enviable level of comfort. The car rolled silently down the road, and glided over joints of asphalt. When combined with the shortest braking distance on wet roads, and excellent resistance to aquaplaning you have a winner. Auto Review recommends the F1 A2 to everyone: to those who wish to increase the limiting capabilities of the car, and those who, moving to larger diameter wheels exclusively for aesthetic motives, wants to maintain an acceptable level of comfort.

2012 Auto Bild Max Performance Tyre Test - 1st of 15 tyres

  • Positive - Extremely well balanced tyre without fault. Dynamic wet handling, shortest braking distances on wet and dry roads, low rolling resistance.

Questions and Answers for the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2

2016-04-29 - Hi, can you tell me on average how long or how many miles this Tyre should last for please? Thank you

Mileage entirely depends on vehicle type, power, driving style and road conditions! We have reports of the Asymmetric 2 lasting anywhere between 5,000 and 50,000 miles, but on an average high torque diesel vehicle like an Audi A4, we'd expect the fronts to last somewhere around 20,000 miles and rears towards 35,000 miles.

Top Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 Review

Given 100% (breakdown) while driving a Audi A3 TDI SLine Quattro 181bhp (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 26,000 spirited miles
I fitted these tyres in 225/40/18/y spec to my new shape 2013 Audi A3 TDI quattro 181bhp which has been chipped up to 230bhp. the stock tyres were Contintental Sportcontact 3 - which I found were loud on many surfaces and in the wet completely unpredictable. these tyres lasted to 16,000 and returned about 42mpg.

I have now done 10k on the Eagle F1 assymetric 2's and have noticed a not insignificant rise to 46mpg and can say without a doubt on pothole and uneven roads the supple, compliant and confidence inspriring feel of this tyre has turned an already confident car into an absolute dream! hands down if you have an Audi Quattro (2013 onward) this is definitely the only tyre you will ever want to be considering placing on your vehicle. i dont know about other cars but for the A3 this tyre absolutely nails it and suits the character of the car.

BMW (255/35 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 45,000 spirited miles
I bought 4 of these, to replace the run flats on my e92 bmw 330d.
I found them to be too soft and spongy. extra roll on the car.
The wear was very good though. got 18k plus out the rears and 25k plus on the fronts.

Replaced them with Pirelli p zeros which had less grip but were stiffer.

Replaced the rear pirellies with Avon ZZ5s which had by far the most grip out the 3 tyres. But did wear the quickest. Would defo fit the Avons again. will not get the goodyears. Pirellis are still on the front waiting for them to wear down and will replace with Avons.

Given 89% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda fabia 3 hatchback (205/45 R16) on a combination of roads for 8,000 average miles
Pros:

+ Excellent grip in the dry. Just as good in the wet, best tyre I have had in these conditions
+ Very quiet, hardly any noise even at motorway speeds
+ Great comfort even with cars that have hard suspensions
+ Best tyre I have owned for minimizing tramlining, especially if you travel regularly on bad road surfaces
+ Best road feel. I have owned Dunlops, Yokohamas, Continentals, Pirellis & Bridgestones. The Good Year beats them all in this.

Cons:

- Very soft quality rubber, can easily pick up damage from scrubbing a pavement & even potholes
- Can wear out quicker than other brand tyres. This was also pointed out by a very experienced tyre mechanic

Overall: I always thought these tyres were all hype after reading some reviews. But after trying a pair on my old Skoda Fabia, there is no going back. Improved the handling a lot over the Bridgestones & Pirellis I previously had fitted. Just a note that as pointed out in the cons, you will most likely be replacing these more than other tyres in the same price range.

Given 81% (breakdown) while driving a Mercedes Benz C200k (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 20,000 spirited miles
Have change to this tyre from PS3 Michelin, my first impression was it is not as sticky on the road to compare to the PS3. The steering feel is not as precise I think mainly the design of the rim protector that make the tyre more square at the edge. But the tyre is surprising soft, & quiet after 30,000km run with still 50% thread. I do about 70% highway 30% city. But overall it is a good performance tyre. However becos of the price & the quality , I will consider during my next purchase ( I realize that Goodyear tyre thread will get uneven after using it for sometime just like the Goodyear excellence when I did my balancing during rotation) it is kind of frustrating though cos I make sure the pressure is kept at 30-32 psi . It make the steering wheel vibrate a bit when I am driving fast . Not to mention it is made in Germany. But other then that it is a good tyre .

Given 93% (breakdown) while driving a Renault Twingo RS 133 Cup (205/40 R17 W) on mostly country roads for 6,000 spirited miles
Superb grip on twisty country roads (Hardly ever need to use the brakes to take a even the fastest bends)
Great wet & dry weather braking, much better stopping distance than the Nankang 'doughnuts' that were fitted to the car when I bought it.
I really like the 'Rim protection' sidewall ridge on these tyres too, especially when my wife borrows the car as she hasn't got a clue as to how near to the curb the wheels are when she's trying to park.
I would say my only gripe with the front set of Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2's I bought last year is they have only lasted for just over 6,000 miles, which is a little disappointing, but I suppose if Goodyear made them more durable, they would be no better than the very pretty, but totally useless, Nankang doughnuts that were fitted before.
