Questions and Answers for the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3

2016-03-24 - Is it true that asymmetric 3 has a smaller rim protection than asymmetric 2?

Just as an update to this question, we have been in contact with Goodyear regarding the rim protection on the Asymmetric 3 and the answer should be with us shortly!

2016-03-24 - When can we expect a test with the pilot sport 4, sport contact 6 and the asymmetric 3?

You're unlikely to see the Sport Contact 6 in a test with the Pilot Sport 4 due to the sizes they're made in, the Continental rivals the Pilot Super Sport.
The best test so far this year is the GTU test, however that missed the Michelin.

2016-04-27 - Is it true the side wall height has increased on the 3 vs the 2?

As with all Goodyear tyres, the Asymmetric 3 is within ETRTO (European Tyre & Rim Technical Organisation) guidelines, which does allow for a small variation on side wall height. Whether the size increases or decreases can depend on the size.

2016-04-26 - Will the 3 be N rated for Porsche, Cayman GTS specifically, like the 2?

A reply from Goodyear - We continuously work with OEM partners to develop OE Marked versions of the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3, the tyre is currently approved on the Jaguar XF (J Marked) and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class (MO Marked). The tire will only be N rated if we gain an approval on a Porsche platform.

2016-05-06 - is the goodyear F1 AS3 directional

The Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 is an asymmetric tyre, not directional

2016-05-30 - What does 94y and 98y mean and what is the differance

The 94 and 98 are the load ratings for the Asymmetric 3 tyre. 94 means each tyre is rated to carry 670 kgs, and 98 750 kgs. As a rule of thumb, the high load rating tyre will create slightly more noise, have a slightly harder ride, but will offer a more sporty steering feel.

2016-09-03 - I have Swift Sport 1.6 and I would like to replace my tires with either Dunlop Sport Maxx RT2 or Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric. They are similar but I can't decide. Could you help me ?

Both the latest Dunlop and the Goodyear are extremely similar tyres, you'll be happy with either. We would always side with the Goodyear as we feel longer term the availability would be better.

2016-08-27 - I am about to purchase either Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance or this Asymmetric 3. I think the Efficientgrip is the older design yet has the better fuel efficiency and same wet braking distance. I am surprised by this. It is also cheaper by £10 from Blackcircles. Does the labeling stay consistent such that you can compare older tyer designs against new ones. Why would you buy the Asymmetric 3 over the Efficientgrip? I drive a 2010 Ford Focus 2.0l diesel and do about 22000 miles per year.

The label tests do stay constant. Wet braking is only one performance quality of a tyre, and while it's entirely possible the F1 Asymmetric 3 and EG Performance to have the same wet braking grade, the Asymmetric 3 will have a better balance of overall qualities when you account for wet handling, aquaplaning, dry braking, dry handling etc.

2016-09-16 - I have Lotus Elise s2 sport 135. Its never used on track just occassional road use. Following a blow out on a rear Bridgestone pirenza I am considering replacement tyres with the Goodyear eagle F1 Assyimetric 3. What is your opinion

Sadly we've not yet driven on the Asymmetric 3! One thing to watch out for is that replacing just the rear tyres with the Goodyears could give the car a curious rear-steering feel due to the difference in sidewall strengths between the hard Bridgestone tyres, and the softer Goodyears.

2016-10-16 - I've had the Goodyear asym 2's on my old bmw z4 which were a superb drive although did have to change them fairly often. Now I've got a Toyota gt86 and considering the Goodyear asym 3, Michelin pilot sport 4, or the kumho ku39's? Any advice between them?

The F1 A3 and MPS4 are very closely matched. We've not yet driven them back to back, but would say the F1 A3 would have the slight edge in comfort, and the MPS4 the edge in sporty handling.

2017-01-24 - Where are the Goodyear asy 3 tyres made ?

The Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 is made in a variety of locations depending on the size and market.

Top Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 Review

Given 63% (breakdown) while driving a Volvo C30 T5 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 0 miles
I previously had the asymmetric 2's whilst my car runs about 280bhp and 450nm of torque and i hardly ever got any wheel spin with them. On the other hand with asymmetric 3's i get a lot more wheel spin so i would definitely not buy them again and I'd stick to tglhe previous ones..

Given 91% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 318 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 500 easy going miles
Excellent tyre for the BMW. Nice smooth ride. Very quiet and low rolling resistance helping with fuel economy. Excellent grip in all conditions. Highly recommended.

Given 99% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 520d Tourer (225/55 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 4,000 average miles
It is the perfect tyre for a BMW 5 series. I no longer have wheel spin, control and handling are superb. Much better than the original Continental Premium Contact 2 that are the default tyres for a 5 series. Tyres are relatively quiet and fuel usage has improved. So if you want a sporty tyre but you don't want to sacrifice comfort this is your choice.

Given 79% (breakdown) while driving a Opel Calibra V6 (215/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 3,500 average miles
I used to have the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 tyres before these, but those were down to about 2mm and I sadly got some damage on the sidewall of one of the tyres. So when I heard there was a version 3 out from the Asymmetric tyres, I almost blindly chose those. This because my experience with the Asymmetric 2 tyres was fantastic; very good dry grip, excellent wet grip, very good steering feel and decent comfort. When I saw that the version 3's were even a bit cheaper, I went for it.

Now, after a few thousand kilometers, I kind of regret that decision. Not that these are bad tyres, not in the slightest, but the Asymmetric 2's were just better and more to my liking.

Starting off on a positive note though, the comfort on these tyres has become quite a bit better. Bumps and potholes in the road are less noticeable and they seem to be ever so slightly quieter. The wear, for the short bit that I've used them, seems fine. Wet grip is also still very good, only slightly behind or on par with the version 2's.
Dry grip seems to be a bit worse, I seem to get wheelspin quicker with these when for example driving off at at roundabout that is slightly uphill. This I never had on the previous tyres.

The most noticeable difference however is the feedback. I assume that with the tyres being more comfortable, the steering feel has gone downhill and it's much harder to predict where the limit is during cornering. The Asymmetric 2's were outstanding in that regard, you could feel everything going on through the steering wheel and you would know exactly where the limitations of grip were. I really miss that with these tyres.

In conclusion: if you have already ordered these tyres, no worries, they are pretty good. But if you're still browsing, get the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 tyres; slightly "harder" and less comfortable, but more grip and much more feedback.
