Goodyear is introducing 95 new sizes for its Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 summer tyre, with a particular focus on sizes 19 inch and above to accommodate the growth in SUV and EV sales throughout Europe.
New sizes began rolling out this month, with more than 30 per cent of new them including technologies such as Goodyear SoundComfort and SealTech.
Goodyear says its SoundComfort technology delivers a quieter driving experience, optimising the tyre for EVs. All new sizes are designed to ensure drivers have full confidence in selecting the optimal tyres for their vehicle, regardless of its powertrain.
Meanwhile, several new sizes will feature Goodyear’s SealTech technology. This development automatically seals tyre tread punctures up to 5mm in diameter.
In 2023, Goodyear was awarded ‘Top Manufacturer of the Year of Summer Tires’ by German magazine Auto Bild, due in part to the “outstanding performance” of the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6. Testers from the publication praised its “premium tread pattern with exemplary performance on dry and wet slopes, outstanding mileage”.
Sonia Leneveu, director marketing consumer Europe, Goodyear said: “With the growing complexity in the market and the continued rise in demand for SUV fitments, we are glad to be offering our award-winning Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 in its most complete line-up ever.”
