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.

  1. I have been driving on these tires for about a year(minus the winter months) and they handle very well for summer performance tires. They came stock on my new 718 cayman s and are comfortable, not loud and grip well when new. The issue I have is that although I do drive somewhat aggressively the rears were bald by 5000 miles and the fronts are bald at 9000 miles. Goodyear did replace my rears under warranty but 5000 miles of treadwear while not on a racetrack seems very poor. I do not drive these in the winter months, but rain can be a little dicey also as with all sports cars with performance tires. My previous experience with Porsches and summer performance Michelin Pilot Sports were much better on the treadwear (11000-12000 miles), but not quite as good on the performance. Depending on what tirerack has I may go back to the Michelin’s or try the Continentals as they have the highest treadwear rating.

  2. Calling these tires all season is like calling steak a vegetable. They are terrible in the wet. Just the slightest amount of moisture on the road is enough to cause these tires to slide; they hydroplane badly in any amount of standing water too. I shudder to think what they’re like in snow or ice. All that being said, they’re not bad dry weather tires. They have a decent amount of grip, break traction predictably and ride quietly otherwise. I cannot wait to swap these out for something better but with only 3500 miles on them there are more pressing priorities.

  3. I paid $325 delivered for these 2013 tires. I was concerned about the age, but for $66 each, one season would have been a win I figured. They absolutely blew my OEM run flat tires away! A remarkable reduction in noise…suddenly my cockpit interior was a vigorously swaying crash couch in the silence of space. The grip is fantastic and I barely ever heard them squeal. If I ever need to be in front of somebody or avoid a squirrel…it happens.They’ve shown barely any wear. Take my advice: get winter tires AND summer tires, then you can drive like a raging maniac in every season.

  4. These tires are the real deal German made summer tires. Best tires I have ever owned on a car. That being said they do have quite a different personality from the All season tires I am used to. Living in Northern VA where winter temps stay in the mid 40’s a lot I didn’t even consider my car would come with summer tires but there they are and boy once warmed up they stick like glue.They are quite noisy, choppy and stiff when they are cold but even in 45 degrees they warm up after a few miles. Then they quiet down to an extent (they are not quiet but I have read they quiet down after a few thousand miles) and by 5 miles they feel like the car is glued to the road. haven’t tried them in 30 degrees yet but i’m hoping I never have to. I would like to see how these things are rated for hydroplaning though. they have so much grip on wet surfaces that im afraid they can give me a false sense of security if I hit a puddle. I have no idea how deep a puddle it has to be before im all kinds of no steering so be wary. I will keep testing on side roads at lower speed till I really get a feeling of how deep a puddle they can handle. we will see at the end of the winter if I would buy them again for this climate but I certainly would buy them again in a warmer climate.the car corners like its on rails.

  5. These are the stock OEM tires on my ST. I managed to get about 3800 miles on them since buying the car used before making my way here to Tire Rack to swap out to some winters. Overall, not an awful summer tire. They offer great grip when driving aggressively and are only mildly loud as far as cabin noise is concerned. Like others have mentioned, the factor I do not like about these tires is they really need to get warmed up sufficiently for them to provide what they are designed to. Now perhaps if I lived in Texas or Arizona I would probably not have nearly as much of an issue with these, but in the upper midwest this is a concern I feel I should share. My other concern is with durability as they seem to wear on me awfully fast. Other than these rather minor concerns, this is a well performing summer tire that I could see purchasing again.

  6. OEM on my ’18 Ford Focus ST; These tires take a bit of warming up before grip is available, but when warm, the grip is great. They’re a tad noisy but are a comfortable ride for the type of car. They have very solid wet performance with nearly no slippage.
