Latest Group Test Results

2019 Sport Auto 20 Inch UHP Tyre Test - 3rd of 8 tyres

  • Positive - Good wet handling, good comfort.
  • Negative - Average braking.
  • Overall - Conditionally Recommended.

2018 Auto Bild 20 inch UHP Tyre Test - 2nd of 8 tyres

  • Positive - Sporty handling with stable cornering and a good steering response, short wet and dry braking, good levels of comfort.
  • Negative - Average dry handling.

2015 Auto Express Tyre Test - 6th of 11 tyres

  • Overall - We're used to the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 winning, so it was a surprise to see it down in sixth place. As rivals have progressed, it seems the Goodyear has stagnated, scoring poorly in dry and wet handling which used to be the key areas. Excellent rolling resistance shows where the trade might have been, or perhaps it was a size dependant anomaly, as the tyre still tests well in other magazines.

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.

2019-12-30 - According to the National Tyre Service these tyres should only be fitted to Porsches. Is that correct? I have an Audi Q5. Thanks Chris

No, there is a porsche specific N version of the tyre, but the standard one can fit any vehicle.

Top Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 Review

Given 100% 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.

After 45 000 the Tyre on the inside was cracked all around. The outside of the Tyre was perfect. Tread left was 7mm. This to me was unacceptable my dodge tyre set is Parkour pk07 tyres and they are exactly the same size as they were purchased 4 months earlier 59000 Tread left 6mm but no cracks no defects.

Given 70% while driving a Ford Kuga (235/55 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 1,600 spirited miles
I've had these fitted for around 2000km, so not a long time. I've been very happy with their grip and handling in the dry and wet. (I bought them in 235/55R17 as a more comfortable "touring" tyre for long trips- my other wheels are 19" with 255/40R19 ContiSportContact 6 tyres- they're very noisy on coarse road surfaces and the wheel rim is very easy to kerb as they've got a pathetic rim protector strip.)

Back to the Asymmetric 2, in 235/55R17 they give a quieter ride but with the safe grip and handling I desire.

I haven't scored them high in "Buy Again" as I'm about to have two replaced under warranty. They've both developed lumps/ depressions in the sidewalls. A bit of searching showed up another person with a BMW who reported "lumpy sidewalls" as a problem too. A third tyre has a very small lump as well, I'll be keeping an eye on it. (If you're checking for lumps do it by running a finger around the sidewall.)

225/45/18 and 255/40/18

As a road orientated tyre for use in a variety of conditions and situations, you really won't go far wrong with these. They offer very balanced performance and frankly astounding longevity, especially considering they have seen use on everything from city streets to technical tracks and alpine passes.

In the dry.
When new, I was impressed by the grip and traction these tyres offered. Hard launches resulted in minimal slip and corners could be attacked with absolute confidence. Their on-track performance was admirable for a road tyre and although they went off after several hard laps, they remained communicative and progressive despite being overheated.

In the wet.
I tend to avoid driving in the wet too much however I found these tyres to be great when new-good feedback and progression but perhaps lacking slightly in outright grip. These qualities remained throughout their life with only their aquaplaning resistance diminishing once past 50% wear, a trait which I imagine most tyres will suffer from to some degree.

Noise, comfort, mpg, longevity.
Although these are the attributes I value the least on this car, the F1 A2 performed faultlessly in all such areas. I have never noticed excessive noise, mpg has always been surprisingly good and I found them more comfortable than the continental M3's they replaced without any obvious trade off in steering precision. Their longevity remains a constant surprise, they just don't wear out anything like as quickly as I would have thought. In fact, I wish they had worn out faster so I'd have had an excuse to try something else!

As a do it all tyre I would really recommend the F1 A2, with one caveat. I do a fairly low annual mileage, using my car mainly for fun and found that their performance dropped noticeably after several years. Tread depth was still high when I first experienced this and at that point they hadn't been overheated on track. Cold temperatures also seemed to affect the tyres far more significantly in the last couple of years which wasn't the case when new, so I can only assume that they have perhaps hardened over time despite being stored in ideal conditions when not in use.

For that reason alone I couldn't completely recommend them as a tyre that might see 5+ years of service on a sparsely used performance car, but would suggest that anyone using their car in a more regular, daily driving scenario would be very happy with them.

As for whether I'd (theoretically) buy them again, yes and no. I wouldn't on my car given the age related performance degradation but would, and have done so, on my girlfriends Z3 (F1 A3) as I feel they are a great tyre for the money and suit her usage pattern perfectly.
