The Eagle F1 Supercar G: 2 (Generation 2) ROF (RunOnFlat) is Goodyear’s Extreme Performance Summer, self-supporting run-flat tire initially developed as Original Equipment (O.E.) for 2011 Chevrolet Corvette ZO6 sports cars. The Eagle F1 Supercar G: 2 ROF is designed to be street-refined and track-capable by combining an aggressive appearance with awe-inspiring performance. However, like all Extreme Performance Summer tires, these tires are not intended to be serviced, stored nor driven in near- and below-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 Supercar G: 2 ROF features a race-inspired tread compound molded into a unique asymmetric and directional tread design that rewards the driver with a blend of dry road traction (from massive outboard shoulder tread blocks) combined with wet road confidence (provided by Eagle F1 GS-D3 inspired sweeping Aquachannel grooves on the inboard side).

The tire’s structure includes twin, high-tensile steel belts reinforced with spirally wound nylon that distribute the vehicle’s load across the tire’s footprint to provide high-speed durability and uniform ride qualities. Internal construction enhances steering precision and high-speed stability while the tire’s reinforced sidewalls are capable of temporarily supporting the weight of the car even when all the air pressure is gone. Exterior sidewall rim flange protectors help guard wheels from curb damage.

Since Chevrolet Corvette ZO6 applications feature staggered tire/wheel size fitments, they will require position-specific (RF, RR, LF and LR) tires.

NOTE: RunOnFlat tires are only recommended for vehicles that are originally equipped with self-supporting run-flat tires and equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system.

  1. OEM GoodYear Eagle F1 tires lasted 7872 miles. I figured the Eagle F1 G:2 tires would be a step up, but ended up being a worse choice than the OEM tires. The front inside edges of both front tires show the cords even though alignment is okay. The back tires appear even as to wear. All with just 6528 miles on this set. I know our terrible So. CA roads are partly at fault for this poor wear, but not to the tune of this low amount of miles driven. Immediately upon installing these tires there was chattering from the front wheels when making mild to fairly sharp turns. Something the original Eagle F1’s did not do. I only drive the Corvette under dry conditions so I have no input as to wet road handling. Dry road conditions find these tires tracking imperfections on the road surface, but the OEM F1’s did not. I have used Goodyear tires on a truck and passenger car I have for years and they are great. In fact, everything about those tires have been super on those other vehicles. However, for the Corvette Goodyear tires I have had they dropped the ball on this application. I am replacing the Corvette tires with Bridgestone Potenza REO5OA Pole Position RFT and hopefully they will perform better.

  2. These tires were original equipment on my 2011 Corvette Grand Sport because I got the magnetic ride option. They were horrible! When the tires were cold they would chatter hard and it felt like they were actually hitting the fenders. I took the car to the dealer and they were able to repeat the issue, but said there was nothing they could do because it was the tires. Talk about irritated. A 65K plus car and the manufacture installs tires that are horrible and then says there is nothing they can do! If you got on the car at all, even with the traction control on, they tires would wheel hop all over the place! At around 5000 mikes they started getting noisy and around 7ooo miles it was just ridiculous! The front tires wore out in under ten thousand miles, and I mean the cord was showing. The back tires weren’t much better. I replaced them with Michelin PS 2 ZPs and they are worth every dollar of the extra money. They don’t chatter in the morning. They don’t wheel hop. They feel way more responsive and they are even much quieter. Don’t buy the Goodyear Gen IIs!

  3. I bought a tire, did not fit, Hogan and Sons fixed my old tire, and it has been one month since, and have not received refund. Called tirerack numerous times, they say the tire was scanned, I’m at a loss. Been one month and nothing, no call back, anything. Now I’m trying this survey.

  4. Very good summer performance tire but somewhat unpredictable in temperatures below 60F. At current rate of tread wear I’ll be lucky to get 8,000 miles out of them. But that’s the price you pay performance.

  5. OEM on my 2011 Corvette GS with magnetic ride control. Very noisy, especially on coarse asphalt of Texas highways outside of big cities at cruising speed (speed limit in many TX rural areas is 85 mph). I’ve been waiting for these GY runflats to wear out so that I could put Michelins on. Inboard rubber (about 1/2″ wide strip all the way around at the inside edge of tread) of RF tire (275/35/R18) peeled off the other day at 60mph exposing steel belt. 14,200 miles. I do not drive the car very hard. Had it up to max speed 1 time in west Texas when new. Never been to the track.I can only back out of my driveway on a slant in one direction to avoid scraping the concrete apron with the front spoiler, therefore I make a U-Turn at the corner when I want to go the other way. The front tires always chatter during the U-turn, hot and cold. After reading other comments, I now know it is common with these tires. When it gets down to about 40-45F, the tires feel hard and car feels like it’s on ice. During dry weather (cool, warm, and hot up to 105F), and with traction control “on”, the tail wags in 1st, 2nd & 3rd gear if I goose it – traction at the rear is inadequate. Rear tires don’t come close to handling the torque of this car (428 ft-lbs). Forget about popping the clutch or launch control.Rear tires (325/30/R19) have 4/32″ of tread remaining. LF also has 4/32. RF (the one with the steel poking thru the rubber) is down to 2/32″. Maybe the left U-Turn that chatters caused that one to wear faster. Will get alignment checked when new tires are installed.Never had any hydroplaning – but I usually slow down in the rain. tires ride hard on the city streets, can feel every little crack in the road. Rear tires are nail and screw magnets – have had 4 or 5 flats (slow leaks) from nails and screws – must be the sticky rubber. My garage floor is clean – hazards are coming from the road. Ordered 4 Michelin Pilot Super Sports from Tirerack yesterday.

  6. The front tires wore out at 9000 miles. The rear tires are coming up on 16,000 and they are worn out. I do not drive really aggressive. This is Corvette number 8 so I don’t feel I need to push the car. I know what it will do so I don’t need to prove it to myself. If anything I would have to say I have maxed out the car speed wise 4 times. I’m sure that this didn’t help with the wear factor. I make sure that the tires are always balanced and the alignment is right on. These tires weren’t the worst tires I have had, but they aren’t the best either.
