Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperSport R is one of the new tyre models for everyday and holiday use. This is the ideal choice for the "daily driver" – a car with a powerful engine and a sporty soul, which can be used during "normal" driving.
The Eagle F1 SuperSport R is a premium model. The tyre is designed for dry conditions (track conditions). It's perfect even for demanding runs on the track. The tread blocks do not deform so much compared to the Goodyear SuperSport. The tyre also has a high friction index.
For which models is the Eagle F1 SuperSport R suitable? Goodyear lists the BMW M4 CS, Porsche 911 GT3 and VW Golf GTI Clubsport. These are track versions of daily drivers. On a daily basis, they can be used for a quiet ride around town, on the weekend - for a hard ride on the track.
Tyres for such applications must meet a number of conditions. Firstly, they must not overheat too quickly. The second feature is that the compound reaches its working temperature more quickly. This is the difference between race tyres and "everyday" tyres. In addition, the track tyre must have rigid walls so that the tyres do not wavy when cornering. All these features must be combined with the comfort, durability and durability that are typical of tires used on a daily basis.
The Goodyear brand was founded by Frank Seiberling. Interestingly, he borrowed money for the first vulcanization plant from his brother-in-law. In 1898, Goodyear produced the first bicycle tyre. In 1908, the company began manufacturing tyres for the Ford T, the first mass-produced car. Tyres are not the only industry in which the company operates. Goodyear has created inventions that are used to create artificial hearts and... adhesives, among others.
