Some names are instantly associated with motoring and motorsport because of the quality and reputation of their product range. Goodyear is one of these names. Founded way back in 1898 and based in Ohio in the United States, Goodyear have been manufacturing tyres for road vehicles, off-road vehicles, track racers and motorcycles - plus heavy plant machinery and even aeroplanes. The current offering of Goodyear tyres, sold all over the world, are the result of 120 years of continued research and development using all of the brand's expertise and the support of the racers and teams who use Goodyear tyres at the highest level. Offering high levels of safety and performance combined with state-of-the-art production methods; Goodyear's range of winter and summer tyres are designed to out-perform all others and provide drivers with the grip required to accelerate, corner and brake whatever the weather and whatever the road surface. The Goodyear Eagle F1 tyre is one of the brand's leading performance road tyres, an asymmetric tyre that is rated so highly it is used as the OE tyre on a number of the latest Mercedes and Porsche cars. Giving drivers shorter stopping distances, greater grip and increased confidence; the Goodyear Eagle F1 asymmetric tyre also helps to reduce fuel costs with Goodyear's fuel saving technology - another of the brand's most comprehensive research strategies offering the very best to every driver who uses a set of Goodyear tyres. The more recent version, the Goodyear Eagle F1 asymmetric 3 tyre, takes all the benefits of the asymmetric 2 tyre to a whole new level with Goodyear's reinforced construction technology helping to prolong the life of the tyre; and this is the OE tyre choice of brands including Jaguar, Mercedes, Alfa Romeo and Chevrolet.
