Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 named best tyre by Auto Express

Goodyear is delighted to announce that the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 has been named as the “Best Tyre” in the 2012 Auto Express Product Awards. The win follows the tyre’s first place ranking in the highly popular automotive magazine’s “Big Tyre Test” in September 2011.

The tyre, which is designed to answer the most pressing needs of consumers of Ultra High Performance tyres with its ActiveBraking Technology, beat nine competitors to the title following a series of intensive tyre tests.

The Auto Express accolade for the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 complements the impressive list of original equipment fitment wins since its launch which include exclusive high performance vehicles such as the Mercedes-Benz CLS, Audi A4 and Porsche 911 Carrera 2.

Michelle Fisher, Goodyear Brand Manager said: “Our Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 tyre continues to prove its worth as an increasing number of independent experts discover its strengths, on both wet and dry road surfaces.

“It is a clear recognition that the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 is being seen as one of the best tyres on the market today, and being named as the ‘Best Tyre’ by such an influential automotive magazine really adds credibility to our message.”

Notably, the Goodyear UltraGrip Performance 2 was named a “Commended” product in the Winter Tyre category.
