Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 recognised for consistent top performance on wet and dry roads with maximum efficiency



The first two tyre tests of the season from German trade magazines have been published and the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 has defeated the competition in both.



“Goodyear conceived the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 as the ultimate all-round summer tyre,” said Piotr Nagalski, Director of Marketing at Goodyear Europe, “we are proud to see the tyre’s performance on wet and dry roads recognized by prestigious German publications Auto Zeitung and Gute Fahrt.”



Auto Zeitung gives top rating and fuel-saving recommendation[1]



In its latest tyre test, German car magazine Auto Zeitung examined ten branded 225/40R18 size products in the sporty UHP segment. The Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 won the test with outstanding performance and a clear lead over the next-placed tyre. It also received the coveted fuel-saving recommendation.



The tyre also outperformed all competitors in the safety-relevant discipline of wet braking.




The publication’s editors commented that: "The performance of the Goodyear, which is already excellent on wet roads, is very good, not only subjectively, but also, for example, with low rolling resistance. This performance suggests an enormous development effort, because only with an appropriately complex rubber compound can a tyre roll efficiently and at the same time be grippy in the wet."


The experts sum up the Goodyear tyre’s performance as follows: "With top performance on wet and dry roads, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 takes the test win and also the award for the most efficient tyre among those recommended."



Gute Fahrt impressed by the tyre’s development[2]



Gute Fahrt magazine put eight summer tyres in the popular 245/40 R18Y size through their paces. As by far the best in the test, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 demonstrated terrific performance. It received the coveted Gute Fahrt recommendation and the best overall rating of "Very Good +".



It was the only candidate to receive the grade "Very Good" in all performance-relevant criteria - handling dry/wet, ABS braking dry/wet, aquaplaning longitudinal/crosswise, circular path wet.



The experts' comments speak volumes: "We don't know what alchemist Goodyear has contracted, but he definitely did a great job. On wet or damp roads, the Eagle F1 outperforms the others. But also, in the dry disciplines it plays right at the top.”
