Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 Reviews (newest first) - Page 7

Given 56% (breakdown) while driving a Subaru 2006 impreza wrx STI (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 2,000 spirited miles
After reading lots of good reviews about this tyre I replaced my Re070 for the Goodyear eagle f1 as2.

Massive mistake!

First impression were good the car felt more comfortable over bumps and there was less road noise.

Handling was terrible the car felt like it had flat tyres. Fast direction changes made the rear tyres squirm. Hard cornering also pushed the tyre over on to its side wall.

Even after playing around with tyre pressures and upping them to silly pressures the handling was still soft and unresponsive.

After a few thousand miles they had to come off the car. When we removed them the side walls are so thin you can fold the tyre flat with one hand.

After talking to the tyre fitter he mentioned there a very light weight tyre construction designed to reduce rotating mass to help reduce fuel consumption and not what he would recommend for a performance car.

Personally I think this tyre is more suited to a family car or a daily commuter.

Given 95% (breakdown) while driving a Mazda 6 Sport 2.3L (215/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 250 spirited miles
Recently (250 miles ago) fitted on Mazda 6 Sport. Previously had Dunlops sportmaxx TT. So far I'm positively surprised by these new tires. Grippyyy, very nice brake performance, lateral grip and progressiveness could be a bit better when cornering aggressively, however fronts seems a bit underinflated and I suspect that this is the cause (will check the presure and update the review later after more miles driven). Subjectively I would say F1 asymm2 are more comfortable and quieter compared to previous dunlops. I would never expect sporty tires to be so much comfortable, thumbs up for that! I also tested them on empty highway last weekend, incredibly stable at speeds around 200km/h (125mph). So far, so good, I'm very happy with my choice. Only had a change to drive in a dry so far, looking forward to test wet performance as well because wet is where these tires are supposed to show its huge potential!

Given 81% (breakdown) while driving a Mazda 2010 2.3mps (225/40 R18) on mostly country roads for 9,000 spirited miles
car came with dunlop factory fitted and they were rubbish changed fronts to michelin ps2s they were good but noisy then change all 4 to the goodyears and they are smoother,quieter, better in the wet and dry and they even look better than the others mite struggle to get the same miles as the michelins but your only talking 2000 miles less and they are a bit cheaper anyway.iv went through a lot of tyres in my life and iv learnt do not buy cheap tyres if you can go for one of the top six makers best bet michelins,continental or goodyear and i can safely say that another 2 goodyear asymmetric 2s will be fitted to the front in the coming months 9.5 out of 10

Given 100% (breakdown) while driving a Audi TT (225/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 500 average miles
Recently fitted to my 225Bhp TT Quattro and What a transformation to the Avon crap that was previously on the car. Loads quieter, 5 mpg improvement and fully optimises the Quattro. These are a must have tyre for any performance car! I've not had them long, but the difference is immediate and was recommended by a friend. Great independent reviews for this tyre. Good value at £93.00 each, fully fitted price for 225/40/18/Y.

Given 53% (breakdown) while driving a Audi A5 (255/35 R19 W) on mostly town for 7,000 average miles
Good tyres however on lasted 7000 miles over the summer from new and that's normal driving. Come winter the winter tyres go on. Previous to the goodyears we had continental sport 5ps which lasted two summers and about 15000 miles. So its March again its time to get some new tyres. Had goodyear and continental so its time to try Michelin pilot super sports which I will report back on later in the year. The goodyears are a comfortable and decent tyre but the wear rate is only let down.

Given 100% (breakdown) while driving a BMW Z4 3.0 (255/30 R19 W) on a combination of roads for 150 average miles
ok ive only had these tyres for 150miles or so, however that being said, from the moment i left the forecourt of the garage, the difference in comfort alone compared to my stock Potenza's has been immense!
shocks from potholes, old road works, country roads reduced significantly,
road noise reduced 10 out of 10
vibrations in car reduced 10 out of 10
handling improved simply by the feeling your not bouncing in and out of potholes etc. but actually hugging the road 10 out of 10
i still have Potenza RFTs on the front so tramlining has increased, however, once i have tin, the fronts will be replaced.
dry grip 10 out of 10
wet grip only had a couple of showers so far, but feel good, i will update this again when i experienced some really wet weather.
i will update again once ive covered more miles, replaced the fronts, and driven in the wet....
im struggling for negatives to balance this liking these eagles alot!

Given 52% (breakdown) while driving a Vauxhall Astra SRi (225/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 1,000 spirited miles
Really disappointed in these tyres! I had Continental CS5's on before and they were fantastic in the wet and the dry, driving on the limit, and lasted 30k miles hard driving! These by comparison are awful. At first I thought maybe it was the cold weather but even now it's warmed up and on dry roads the grip is very poor! I had so much confidence on the CS5's, I could go into corners flat out knowing the grip would be there, right from day 1 till I changed them. These tyres give terrible understear, spin up on acceleration, even on the dry. Feel softer and don't offer the sure footed feeling the CS5's gave. So wish I'd bought the Contis again, I nearly did, they were slightly cheaper too. Can't believe it with the reviews on hee, which is why I went for these. Are people just being sheep with their reviews or are they just Sunday drivers??? Gutted! Now I have at least a couple of years to put up with this lack of grip! Baahhhhh :'(
