The new Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 has made its launch debut in Malaysia, offering increased levels of performance thanks to a host of new technologies.

For starters, the Grip Booster Technology delivers improved grip handling, thanks to a new compound and adhesive resin. There’s also Active Braking Technology that increases the contact surface and grip when braking, allowing for shorter braking distances.

Additionally, the tyre features a reinforced construction that delivers improved handling, cornering performance, tread wear and fuel efficiency.

According to the TUV Sud Benchmark Test, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 has a shorter braking distance of up to 2.6 meters on wet roads and 1.3 meters on dry roads compared to average performance of 3 leading competitors.

The same test results also reveal a 10.9% better rolling resistance compared to the average of the three tested competitors, which represents the second best rolling resistance performance among other tyre brands. Tests by independent organisation DEKRA have shown that the new addition to the Eagle series offers up 11,500 km extra mileage (or +31% better wear performance) versus the average of three leading competitors.

For the Malaysian market, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 is offered in 17- to 20-inch rim diameters, with up to 34 sizes available. Prices start from RM668 to RM1,820, depending on sizes.
