Continental PremiumContact 7 vs Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6

In this article we will be looking at independent tyre test data, and real world driver reviews of the Continental PremiumContact 7 and the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 to find out which tyre is best for your own driving.

There are a few basic differences between the two tyres. The Continental PremiumContact 7 is an Premium-Touring Summer tyre designed to be fitted to Passenger-Cars, and the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 is an Premium-Touring Summer tyre designed to be fitted to Passenger-Cars

PremiumContact-7 VS Eagle-F1-Asymmetric-6

Test Results

Independent comparison tyre tests are the best source of data to get tyre information from, and the good news is there have been four tests which compare both tyres directly!

Out of these four tests:

  • Continental PremiumContact 7 finished ahead of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 in two of the tests
  • Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 finished ahead of the Continental PremiumContact 7 in two of the tests

While it might look like the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 is better than the Continental PremiumContact 7 purely based on the higher number of test wins, tyres are very complicated objects which means where one tyre is better than the other can be more important in real world use.

Lets look at how the two tyres compare across multiple tyre test categories.

Dry Braking

Looking at data from four tyre tests, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 was better during three dry braking tests. On average the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 stopped the vehicle in 0.51% less distance than the Continental PremiumContact 7.

Given 100% 225/40 R18 on a combination of roads for 1,000 spirited miles
I am a massive Goodyear fan. I had the Assym 3's on a previous car and never looked back.

I have now had the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5's, Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersports, Michelin PS4 and even some Avon's (for a brief period) on my current car - a Golf GTI Clubsport 40.

I mix up my driving a lot - lots of motorway driving but also lots of hard street driving and B road blasts, I find it massively important to have the best tyres possible to allow me to push my car as hard as I can in a safe manner.

I was massively impressed with the Asymmetric 5's, the sheer grip... Continue reading this review using the link below

Footnote

This page has been developed using tyre industry testing best practices. This means we are only comparing tests which have had both tyres in the same test.

Why is this important? Tyre testing is heavily affected by things like surface grip levels and surface temperature, which means you can only compare values from the same day. During a tyre test external condition changes are calculated into the overall results, but it is not possible to calculate this between tyre tests performed on different days or at different locations.

As a result you will see other tests on Tyre Reviews which feature both the Continental PremiumContact 7 and Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6, but as they weren't conducted on the same day, the results are not comparable.

Lots of other websites do this sort of tyre comparison, Tyre Reviews doesn't.
