The Eagle F1 Asymmetric is Goodyear's Max Performance Summer tire developed for modern high performance vehicles. The asymmetric in the Eagle F1 Asymmetric name describes the tire's tread design and internal structure, both designed to enhance performance in dry and wet conditions. The tread uses Goodyear's Racing Compound Technology to combine carbon black for dry traction, silica for wet traction and a new generation of polymers to optimize tread stiffness. Goodyear's Active Cornergrip Technology provides more contact with the road for more even distribution of pressure across the whole contact patch when cornering. Like all summer tires, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.
