Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric
A giant leap for confident cornering
Consumer of high performance vehicles still look for safety first when it comes to choosing a tyre. Closely followed by performance and comfortable drive. So the challenge to Goodyear engineers was to complement the predictive safety systems found on modern cars and develop a tyre that could control these powerful modern vehicles without loss of performance. The result was the Eagle F1 Asymmetric. Combining our revolutionary Active Cornergrip Technology and Racing Compound derivatives, the pressure is evenly distributed when cornering at high speeds, meaning more contact patch grips the road more of the time
High performance, extreme safety. Aquaplaning, wet handling
Better traction and grip in wet and dry conditions
Ensuring a smoother, quieter ride
- Unique Active Cornergrip Technology
- Racing Compound Technology
- Pitching Sequence
- Ensures even distribution of pressure and consequently more efficient tyre/ road contact patch where all tread zones are in action
Reinforces compression of the open tread zone designed for critical wet conditions like aquaplaning
- Tread stiffness optimised via highly reinforcing filler and a new generation of polymers. This tread compound is more environmentally friendly through low PCA technology
- Optimising tyre noise harmonics
- High performance

The aramid chipper in the inside wall of the tyre:
ensures even distribution of pressure and consequently more efficient tyre/road contact patch where all tread zones are in action
reinforces compression of the open tread zone designed for critical wet conditions
Active CornerGrip technology for optimum performance
The Eagle F1 Asymmetric tyre features Goodyear’s well-known Active CornerGrip technology, which has been enhanced even further. The Eagle F1 Asymmetric N0 combines an asymmetric tread pattern with a new dual tread compound technology. This patented dual tread technology features a high quality wet-traction silica compound on the inside and an advanced dry-grip compound on the outside. The special features of this new dry-grip compound incorporate the latest developments from Goodyear’s Innovation Centre, such as specific “Goodyear made” polymer, traction-booster resins and a nano-carbon black reinforcement.
Dual Tread Technology
High-quality wet-traction silica compound
Advanced dry-grip compound
In the 4 listed sizes, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric tyre has earned the prestigious N0 label from Porsche, which warrants its quality.
Starting spring 2009, Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric tyres come as original equipment on the latest Porsche Cayman and Boxster models in two mixed fitments.
In addition to Porsche, many automotive manufacturers also recognise the great performance of Goodyear’s Eagle F1 Asymmetric tyres. Moreover, Europe’s leading car magazines have tested the Eagle F1 and rewarded the tyre for its outstanding driving capabilities on wet and dry roads.
