Goodyear has launched its latest tyre called the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 in Malaysia. This premium luxury sport tyre delivers a 31% better wear performance and shorter braking distance on dry & wet roads. With proven Eagle family test wins and an OE track record, including the new Jaguar XF, it is Goodyear’s premium offering for excellent braking performance, responsive handling and control in both dry and wet conditions.
For the Malaysian market, the new Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 tyre will be offered in 17-inch to 20-inch rim diameter variants, with up to 34 sizes available. It retails from RM668 to RM1,820 inclusive of GST, depending on different sizes. Consumers can now purchase the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 tyres at Goodyear Autocare and Servitekar outlets, as well as authorized Goodyear dealers nationwide.
“Goodyear is known for its commitment to innovate and to offer superior performing products to its consumers. The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 is designed to suit the needs of consumers in Malaysia, and tested to Goodyear’s highest standards to provide confidence that it will perform on the region’s roads. It has also been accredited as original equipment for some of the world’s leading cars such as the Jaguar XF, Mercedes E-Class, the BMW 5 Series, Alfa Romeo Guilia, Chevrolet Camaro and the Porsche Panamera. With its improved grip and braking technology, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 demonstrates Goodyear’s brand promise of offering greater peace of mind, regardless of the destination,” said Ben Hoge, Managing Director of Goodyear Malaysia Berhad.
The new Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 is packed with new technologies. For instance, the Grip Booster Technology comprises a grip booster compound and adhesive resin for stickiness, which delivers strong grip for shorter braking and improved handling. The Active Braking Technology on the other hand, increases the contact surface and grip when braking, which allows for a shorter braking distance. Meanwhile, the new reinforced construction technology delivers a stronger, lightweight construction improving handling, cornering performance, tread wear and fuel efficiency.
The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 has been tested by independent organization DEKRA* which resulted in a strong performance on tread wear compared to other premium tyres on the market. In fact, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 is projected to offer up to 11, 500km extra mileage (or +31% better wear performance) versus the average of three leading competitors.
Additionally, the independent TÜV Süd Benchmark test** conducted by Goodyear shows that the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3, compared to the average of three leading competitors, having a 2.6 meter shorter braking distance (9% better performance) on wet roads, a 1.3 meter shorter braking distance on dry roads (4% better performance) and 4% better wet handling. The same test result also show a better 10.9% better rolling resistance compared to the average of the three tested competitors, which represents the second best rolling resistance performance of the tyre brand tested.
