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.

2018-05-19 - I am looking for a replacement set of tyres for a 2006 jaguar xjr. I have had Hankook Ventus V12's which were a great tyre but soft sidewalls. Nexen N1000 have been a great compromise but they pick up punctures easily so I am getting rid of them. Problem is the cost of medium range tyres has exploded over the past 6 years and there is little difference between a nexen Su1, dunlop maxx 050+ and goodyear AS3. One of the tyre shops hates Goodyear product and says they are inferior quality despite the high test scores. I heard the AS2 is a better tyre than the AS3 because it has a stronger sidewall. So what is the best choice of tyre if i don't want to spend crazy money on Michelin.

I wonder why the tyre retailer you've spoken to dislikes Goodyear products, given the hundreds of independent objective tests they've been featured in prove them wrong. Your best bet is to watch this tyre recommendation video.

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.

Given 63% (breakdown) while driving a SEAT LEON 1.8TSI (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 30,000 spirited miles
Drove them for around 30,000 miles.
Too expensive for what offering. They should bear the name Mediocre year F8...
The wear is terrible. Need to be to motorway for half an hour dricing more than 120km/h to start warming up. For town wet cruises close to dangerous.

Given 87% (breakdown) while driving a SEAT Leon 2.0 TFSI (225/45 R17 W) on mostly motorways for 21,000 average miles
The tyre is a very good overall performer. Grip and braking feels very good at both dry and wet (not a full 9 but closer to 9 than to 8). Driven on a rather mediocre quality of asphalt they have appeared to need some more warming up before they reach their best performance but after that, performance is very good. There are two negative points however, but they may be circumstantial: first is that in very tight corners they have a tendency to skid a bit (but this may also be due to the asphalt quality).
Second negative point is "some kind of wear" but let me explain: Greek summer is tough on the tyres and although there is no actual tread wear, there is a performance deterioration which made me change them in just over 3 years and 33.500km with a tread height that would certainly not dictate a tyre change.
Have recently replaced them with the asymetrico 3 which right from the start feels to have undergone some improvement....

Given 63% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 330d M Sport (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 10,000 average miles
Good tyre but jesus Christ they are useless on UK roads! a single pot hole will cause side wall failure and any minor bumps feel like your car has 0 suspension. The sidewalls are too stiff and cause premature failures often, just google UK road users of these tyres and you will see. I have replaced all 4 tyres 3 times from side wall failures in 40k miles. They also wear very fast and are too stiff on uneven surfaces. Would not recommend, have no swapped to non RFT's and its so much better. Just take a tyre repair injection kit or hell even pay for the AA to tow you and you will save money on needlessly replacing tyres from side wall failures.

Given 73% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Focus ST250 (235/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 1,500 spirited miles
For the street these are just fine, they seem to have sufficient grip and I haven't noticed any hydroplaning or dangerous reactions. We'll see how they do as the miles build.

For autocross I am less than impressed. At my last event I found them to lack ultimate grip, and were snappy at the limit. I was sliding around the entire course, and couldn't lower the pressures anymore without going on the sidewall.
