Although the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 has been out for a few months, this season marks the first time it'll be available for enjoyment by a majority of the country. As the nice weather hits, fans of Goodyear's original Eagle F1 Asymmetric will be pleased to find a fresh replacement that offers a tidy, stable and asymmetric tread pattern that has positioned itself to be a serious contender in the Max Performance Summer tire market.
While we haven't put the tire through our tests yet, I'll be expecting to see improvements in overall dry grip. We also expect the tire to receive high marks for having a good balance of wet weather handling and hydroplaning resistance -- something the Eagle F1 Asymmetric was known for.
Much like the Pilot Super Sport has replaced the Pilot Sport PS2 from Michelin, Goodyear was looking to build upon a tire that was already good, in order to manufacture a product that's even better. When testing these Max Performance Summer tire giants, we are most always pleased to find subtle improvements in most areas, while not deviating too far from an already well-liked path.
