Questions and Answers for the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5

2019-03-16 - How is sidewall stiffness, steering response and precision characteristics of this comparing to Falken Azenis FK510, Michelin Pilot Sport 4 (not S), Conti PremiumContact 6 ? Thank you.

I am testing the Asymmetric 5 against the PC6 (and Asym 3) next week, keep an eye on youtube for the video :)

2019-04-06 - Merc E350 amg coupe 2015. The front and rear have different size tyres. The asymmetric 5 make a size to fit the rear, but not the front. Any problems with asymmetric 5 on the rear and asymmetric 3 on the front?

While it's not ideal, there's no problem to run that combination of Asym 3 and Asym 5.

2019-04-21 - do you think the correct tire pressure for 225/45 r17 91Y PS? (vehicle: dsg golf 1.2 2015 110hp)

The tyre pressure for the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 is vehicle and load specific. The correct tyre pressure for your vehicle can usually be found on a sticker in the door shut of the driver's door, or in the manufacturer's handbook.

2019-05-29 - Does anyone know if / when Goodyear will release a 205/40r17 in the Asymmetric 5. Currently using the Asymmetric 3 but this tyre size has now been discontinued. Also looking for it in a 225/45r19 again just recently discontinued in the Asymmetric 3 range.

Both 205/40 17 and 225/45 19 are now available in Asymmetric 5, so you should be able to find them in the marketplace :)

2019-06-21 - When will 255/30/19 and 265/30/19 sizes be released within the UK please?

The Eagle Asymmetric 5 in size 255/30R19 is now on sale it was released earlier this month. It looks like Goodyear won’t be producing the tyre in size 265/30R19 as they haven’t produced an Eagle Asymmetric tyre in that size since the Goodyear Eagle Asymmetric 2.

2019-09-10 - Can't decide between these ASM5 and Michelin PS4. My my top requirements is Comfort, Wet and Dry Stopping performance, Aquaplaning and Wear rate. the PS4 is now quite a bit more expensive, so that is also a factor. To be fitted to an Audi A6 Avant 255/35/19

There there is a big difference in price, I would go for the Goodyear as the two tyres are very close in all other aspects.

2019-11-10 - Deciding between the standard ASM5 or the ASM5 XL 225/45R17. prices are the same but the XL boasts better fuel economy according to the labelling, however will the ride quality suffer due to the reinforced tyre? are there any reasons not to go with the XL variant? or are the differences relatively unnoticeable?

The differences between the non-XL and XL versions of tyres are usually very small, and in some cases, they're actually the same tyre. As these have different label scores, there are differences in the tyre for the Asymmetric 5, but I wouldn't let that put you off the XL version as they're likely to be small.

2019-11-29 - Will these be ok on an Audi A5 quattro or is it best to stick to RO tyres? If RO is best what would you recommend?

I'd have no problems putting an aftermarket version of the Asymmetric 5 on an Audi.

2020-03-05 - I have a VW caddy maxi with 19inch wheels with Goodyear Eagle 1 asymmetric 5 (225 /35 ) what should the tyre pressure be ??

The tyre pressure for the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 is vehicle and load specific. The correct tyre pressure for your vehicle can usually be found on a sticker in the door shut of the driver's door, or in the manufacturer's handbook.

2020-03-26 - Does anyone know if the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 also in runflat (ROF) version available is? Size 225/55 R17.

I believe as of writing (April 2020) only the Asymmetric 3 is available in runflat in 225/55 R17.

2020-04-02 - I am looking for the GY F1 Asym5 for my 2008 Lexus gs450h. Lexus recommends 245 40 r18 93 y. But is it better to go with the 97 xl as the car has 345 horsepower? Or is the difference too small?

Fitting the higher load rated Goodyear Eagle Asymmetric 5 is perfectly legal, and while the differences might be small between the 93 and 97 load rating tyres, there's no disadvantages if you're looking for improved handling.

2020-06-13 - what sort of tyre would your recommend for a vw sharan with 184 bhp front wheel drive. Would you recommend strictly touring tyre or uhp if you like some spirited driving? I have p7 at the moment. So far having read reviews on p7, ps4, pc6, gy ef1 a5 am leaning towards goodyears. Or shall I wait for new p7 c2 as there are no reviews on them? Comfort, fuel efficiency and good wet dry handling is the priority... hope you can help!!

A tyre like the Asymmetric 5 would be an excellent blend of comfort and sporty driving for your VW.

2020-08-11 - If price were not a factor which would you recommend for a combination of comfort on road trips and spirited driving on windy roads: Michelin pilot sport 4 or Goodyear eagle fi asymmetric 5? Seat Leon fr 225/40 R18

My choice would be the Asymmetric 5 as I prefer the handling over the PS4.

2020-09-22 - Do they make 275/35/19 asymmetric 5 for rear of BMW 5-Series.

They sure do, they can be found here.

2021-03-20 - I have a TVR T350, its a very light sports car but because if the front tyre size being 225-35-18 the 35profile tyre range is limited. After a lot of search I am torn between the Asymetric 5 or running a Michelin Super Sport on the front and a PS4S on the rear. Michelins are my preferred however because of the size I would need to mix in this way. Is this a good idea or would the Asymetric 5 although a range below the Michelin be a better bet?

Good question. Usually I'd prefer to match tyres, but as the 350 is so light and the PSS / PS4S not the worse combination of tyres, I might be tempted to try that. Whatever you decide, be sure to let me know how you find them!

2021-07-01 - The "Fuel" results of Asymmetric 5 Label Scores have all kinds of result from A to E. Why the testing results are so inconsistent for different sizes of the same model? I am going to buy "25/40 R18 92Y XL" which has "E", is it going to be very bad for fuel consumption?

Generally bigger / wider tyres have a higher rolling resistance, which is why you often see different label scores when looking at a tyre range with lots of sizes. The real world differences between a C and E aren't that huge and I personally wouldn't let it influence my purchase decision too much.

2021-07-06 - The price difference for both the PS4 and the GYA5 is £20 for two tyres. Which should I go for? And would you recommend the XL version or the standard? These are for the front 2 tyres on a BMW F30. Thanks!

From all my testing I prefer the front axle feel of the Asymmetric 5, but both tyres are excellent products!

2021-10-29 - Many Jaguar XF owners have slated the AS5 and favoring its predecessor, the AS3. Does anyone know why?

I've not heard of this, sorry. Jag owners are also the only people in the world to like the P6000 so it might be the OE Asym 3 is more suited than an aftermarket Asym 5.

2022-02-20 - Hello! Can you help me please - choosing for BMW 525d Xdrive from GYA5 (or GYA6) and Michelin PS4. What on your opinion will be good for my car in 245/45/18? Looking for a kind of balance between sporty and a kind of comfort. Thanks a lot!

This 18" tyre test will show you everything you need to know about the PS4 vs Asym 5.

2022-08-23 - In the size that fits my car (MAZDA6 WAGON MY2017 ) 225/45R19 there are two different references of the Asym5 with two different scores Fuel/Wet B/C and A/B. I found a website that states that this diference is beause there is a Tube and a TL version. In your opinion what would be the best option ?? Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure one is a tube version, that would be very odd with todays technology. It's more likely one was an updated tyre for a better label result or one is an OE fitment which has a different blend of performances. I'd double check one isn't OE fitment and if not get the better label score.

Given 99% while driving a BMW 330d SE (255/35 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 6,000 spirited miles
I am really happy with these tyres, the way they grip and give confidence in all conditions is amazing. They are also comfortable and quiet when you just want to cruise. I can break traction with them in the wet in lower gears on my car, but they do so in a very predictable and controllable manner. My only slight gripe is that they tend to pick up small sharp stones which seem to get stuck easily into the rubber, so it would appear that the compound is quite soft. I have had no issues with wear however, 6000 miles in and they look almost like new on the rear despite some heavy right-footedness.

Given 89% while driving a MINI Roadster SD (205/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 700 spirited miles
These tyres are super sticky as expected. Grip levels are top notch both in dry and wet.
Silent and super comfortable. I wish steering to be sharper and faster. But we can't have it all.
They are actually not Ultra High Performance or Max Performance tyres. I would call these as Sport Touring tyres. It's really pity that premium tyre manufacturers don't have real Max Performance and Ultra Performance Tyres (below 19") in their product portfolio anymore. Instead they label Touring Tyres as Performance Tyres which is not really good.

Would I buy these again? Maybe not for my weekend/sport car. But I would definitely buy these for our family estate car. Excellent quality tyres.

Best Tyres I had on my RS3, tried many brands in my 5/6 year ownership. Pirelli Pzero hands down the worst ones, aquaplanning at 70kmh and weared out so damn fast.... These instead wow, just wow. Never slided out of control under the rain, nice feeling and grip in all weathers, almost zero tread wear. In dry conditions very nice and precise to drive cooping with the audi 4x4... Super happy with the experience overall. I would go with the next gen of this model no brainer for the new ones i will get in the future.

My initial review is here somewhere but I can not find it to edit it.

End of life review: so, I bought these in May 2020 for la 5 series 520d with 177hp, rwd. I used them by rotation, for 3 summers and aprox 30-35k km on mixed roads. I planned to use them this summer as well, two of them had 4mm and the other two had 6mm, but, even if I properly stored them, had correct pressure in them and so, they show advance aging https:// imgur. com /a/BoXRfVW (remove spaces) which never happened to previous 4 sets of GY that I had on different cars for even 4-5 years/set, but also, never had GY UHP tyres before.
I replaced them with Hankook Prime 4, as I wasn't feeling safe with them anymore and also they became very noisy but still with a good grip both on dry and wet.
Not sure if I will buy any other GY anytime soon.

Fit to replace old Kuhmo that lasted me 70K and expected much better for a premium brand. Cannot really fault on dry/wet but very not really forgiving on curve. - the real issue now : almost gone after 30K. .... Will buy Michelin next time- safer bet or Kuhmo again if finance don t allow it.

Given 89% while driving a Opel Insignia Sports Tourer Biturbo 4x4 (245/45 R18) on mostly country roads for 24,000 spirited miles
I bought two of these Goodyear’s and put them on rear end of my Insignia Biturbo 4x4. At first and they really impressed me with the level of grip and how relaxed they made me feel even when late for work and pushing the car. Next season I put them on front and I was even more impressed with the way the car took on curves. Only drawback I can think of is that they wear quite fast but that’s probably my fault for driving the way I do in the mornings

Given 50% while driving a Skoda (225/40 R18) on mostly town for 10,000 easy going miles
I bought thes ebased on recommednations and reviews from others but found them lacking. They do not give the car the 'sure footed' feeling in the corners and they slip under acceleration from a standing start far too easily even when pulling away gently. They have worn out on the front with less than 10,000 miles covered and mostly careful considered driving. I usually have my family in the car so I hardly ever drive in a spirited manner anymore, certainly not pushing the tyres to their limits with hard acceleration, braking and cornering so I am seriously disappointed by the lifespan of these tyres. I won't be fitting them ever again.

Factory tyres in my giulia diesel. Most miles on motorways in high speed, mostly in dry and hot conditions (living in Greece). Very balanced tyre, both on dry and wet surfaces. Only negative the noise they make. Thinking of replacing them with asymetric 6.

Did about 30.000km on them, before them I had the GY EfficientGrip (101 XL) and they were much, much better for my car. With the F1s I had a handling issue as the side wall appeared to be to soft (97 load index, no XL) and the car went all wobbly when going over pot holes. Likewise the car was unstable when making fast lane change maneuvers, it did a boat wobble which I hate. Looks like they are not suited for big sedans in this dimension, if you like driving a bit friskier. Also they wore quite fast and after 3 seasons they had to be replaced as the front had only 3mm left (I did switch front/rear every year). The braking was good in dry and wet. Will be looking at other tires this year. I also noticed a dip in the middle of the tire when I took them of the wheels.

Having replaced my ageing Continental Premium-contact 6's and looking over the reviews decided to buy some Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5's from reviews. Absolutely no issues with performance but the tyre life sadly is not good - mine lasting a mere 4500miles (I cover 1000miles/month) so very disappointed as how soon I need to replace them. In hindsight looking at my records I did put these similar model Goodyear tyres on 10-15 years ago and they also lasted a mere 4000 miles back then - I obviously forgot to check my history! So back to Continentals! The fronts are F1 V6 and to be fair are looking almost new so cant complain there.
