Goodyear Eagle F1

Goodyear Eagle F1 low profile tire

VIENNA, VA - Goodyear may have accomplished the impossible - they've built an ultra high performance tire that boasts the best of all worlds: superb dry weather traction, incredible wet weather performance, quiet ride and unheard of durability.

The new Eagle F1s, which feature brand new tire technologies including V-TRED and OneTRED, are specifically designed for upscale, sports car and sedan owners and feature a sweeping unidirectional tread pattern that evacuates water at an unprecedented rate.

The unique design of the tire features a continuous "center zone" that increases stiffness and provides immediate steering response and accurate feedback, a continuous load transfer design which translates into improved handling (thanks to the shoulder to centerline tread blocks), and as if that weren't enough, it also offers a more stable shoulder area (read: more stable and increased lateral stiffness), thanks to asymmetrical rib angles.

Watching this tire perform is truly inspiring. It swallows high-g-force corners with ease, laughs at wet weather and provides tremendously accurate feedback to the driver. Improved noise characteristics and increased durability (280 tread rating) are almost like a bonus when you consider how well the tire performs.

The government appears to agree with us when we say that the wet weather traction is unbelievable - they've awarded it the highest wet weather rating of any ultra high performance tire - the coveted "AA" rating.

The new Goodyear Eagle F1 is available in many sizes, ranging from 195/50/15 to 285/30/21. Pricing is very competitive, considering the no compromises performance that this tire delivers. If you're in the market for tires, take a good look at these bad boys - you won't be disappointed. Look for an in-depth review soon…
