Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3
The Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 is the company’s newest max performance tyre in the Asymmetric range. It is the successor of the popular Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2.
Thanks to Goodyear’s Reinforced Construction Technology, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 is a strong but lightweight tyre. This helps to improve handling, cornering performance, fuel efficiency and tread wear.
The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 also uses Goodyear's new Grip Booster compound. Made with adhesive resin, this compound increases stickiness between the tyre and the road surface. This innovation means the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 offers improved grip and handling on wet and dry roads.
In addition to these features, Active Braking Technology increases the tyre's grip and contact surface area when braking. This has the effect of reducing braking distances in both wet and dry conditions.
Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 Features
- Shorter breaking distances in wet and dry conditions
- Increased grip for better handling response
- Inbuilt rim protector
- Reinforced Construction Technology

Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 Tyre Tests
The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 has performed consistently well in a range of independent tyre tests.
Auto Bild Allrad tested 10 summer tyres in April 2017. The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 ranked first out of them all, earning an “Exemplary” rating. Testers found it to be a well balanced tyre, which offered high resistance to aquaplaning. However, they also noted it provided a low level of traction on grass and that it was reasonably expensive.
In three other tyre tests from the same year, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 was rated as "Good", "Recommended" and "Exemplary", ranking eigth out of 52 tyres, second out of 7 and second out of 9 respectively.
In an Auto Bild Sportscars test, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 was ranked third out of 9. The motoring magazine rated it as “Exemplary” because testers claimed it displayed good handling, short stopping distances, high lateral stability on wet roads and low rolling resistance.
In tests carried out in 2016, Auto Zeitung rated the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 as “Highly Recommended”, Auto Express ranked it second overall and Sport Auto rated it as “Especially Recommended” after it emerged as test winner.
The Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 is available in a wide range of sizes with speed rating Y.
Currently available sizes:
255/30Y19, 245/35Y18, 255/35Y18, 265/35Y18, 225/35Y19, 235/35Y19, 255/35Y19, 275/35Y19, 245/35Y20, 255/35Y20, 215/40Y17, 245/40Y17, 225/40Y18, 245/40Y18, 245/40Y19, 215/45Y17, 215/45Y17, 225/45Y17, 225/45Y17, 235/45Y17, 235/45Y17, 245/45Y18, 245/45Y18, 255/45Y18, 245/45Y19, 235/50Y18
Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV
In early 2018, Goodyear announced the launch the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV. It has been created to offer 4x4 drivers all the benefits of an ultra high performance tyre.
The use of SUV-Optimised Construction Technology means the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV offers drivers better handling, stability and tread wear, in addition to reduced rolling resistance. The unique composition of layers makes vehicle handling at higher speeds feel much more stable and helps to combat cornering stiffness.
What's more, the merging of Active Braking Technology with Goodyear's innovative Grip Booster compound results in increased traction and grip for safer handling, as well as vastly reduced braking distances.
These features are all combined with Goodyear's UHP Cool Cushion Layer, a technology that improves handling while reducing rolling resistance, in order to offer superior fuel efficiency.
Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV Features
- Designed for performance SUVs
- Active Braking Technology means shorter braking distances in both the wet and dry
- Inbuilt rim protectors
- Asymmetric tread design to reduce the risk of aquaplaning
Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV Reviews
The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV is said to offer highly impressive grip, traction and handling for SUVs. It is also said to be quieter than other tyres in its category and relatively hard wearing. This could be the perfect tyre for drivers seeking a safe, high performance tyre for their SUV.
The first size, 255/50 R19 107 Y XL, was made available in February 2018 and further sizes will be released periodically throughout the rest of the year. By 2019, a total of 28 sizes for rim diameters between 18 and 22 inches should be available.
