The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 is Goodyear's Max Performance Summer tire developed for the drivers of high performance sports cars, coupes and sedans. In addition to being designed to deliver improved handling and steering response, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 features Goodyear ActiveBraking Technology to enhance stopping performance on dry and wet roads.
However, like all summer tires, it is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.Goodyear's warranty states: "Ultra high-performance summer tires are not recommended for winter use, and tread or shoulder cracking on those tires resulting from winter use will not be covered under our warranty."The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2's tread compound combines Goodyear race traction resins for dry grip, high surface silica for wet traction and high molecular weight polymers to optimize tread stiffness. This compound is molded into an asymmetric tread design with a wide, solid outboard shoulder to increase cornering traction and continuous notched inboard ribs to improve high speed stability. Goodyear's ActiveBraking Technology 3-dimensional tread element designs increase surface contact with the road to reduce stopping distances during heavy braking, while its wide circumferential grooves disperse water from the tire footprint.The internal structure of the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 includes twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wrapped polyamide cord to enhance tread stability and high-speed capability. Goodyear's lightweight, racing-derived construction lowers unsprung mass to increase performance while their crossed plies casing improves steering precision, handling and stopping power.
