Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 Reviews - Page 2

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.

High dry performance, high mileage, good road feedback and wet handling. To buy again for sure

I had the asym3 on the G30 and I was very satisfied, the asym5 is an even better tire.

after 2 seasons tire is awful on wet grip is horrible, much worse than my winter kleber HP3 tires. on dry road the ride is fine so far, but driving on wet is a night mare, as you are on ice

Given 61% while driving a Citroën C5 (225/55 R17) on a combination of roads for 22,000 spirited miles
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.

Given 66% while driving a Toyota supra turbo (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 4,000 easy going miles
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.

Very good tyre. Great on wet and dry. Best wear ever. I did 65.000km with this tyres on 2.0 tdi Golf 7 Variant (185Hp, 430Nm). Sure i did swap tyres from rear to front and back every 10-15.000km to male them wear even. I will buy again.

Given 91% while driving a Ford Mondeo Titanium 2.0 TCDI (235/40 R19) on a combination of roads for 12,000 average miles
Before i left a review for these tyres i wanted to have used them for a while. They were fitted in october 2021 and i have covered 12000miles on them. At first, these tyres were pretty loud and i thought i'd made a mistake but after around 500 miles they were practically silent compared to the landsail tyres my car had fitted when i bought it. During the summer, these tyres have been superb, Wet or Dry, the car grips like nothing else and while its not a sporty car i can stick it into corners with confidence. Braking in wet & dry is brilliant. Wear, they are down to 5.5mm all round, i did rotate them front to rear in june or july just to balance out the wear. These are great tyres HOWEVER, they do come with a warning for UK drivers who generally use the same tyre all year round, these are high performance summer rubber and as such, turn rock solid below 3c, offer zero grip in the snow, understeer in the cold & wet if pushed too hard. Less then 1cm of snow will defeat them on a tiny incline. My car is a 2016 ford mondeo estate 2.0 diesel, remapped at 224bhp and 470nm, very little to no wheelspin if i have to accelerate quickly wet or dry. Would i buy again, 100%

Given 85% while driving a Saab Automobile 9 5 3.0 V6 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 500 spirited miles
Recently switched from a full set of Roadstones which I was getting tired of spinning up every time I tried to drive in the wet and were woeful at cornering at the first sign of any moisture. I generally research tyres for a long time before committing to buy, and I had finally narrowed myself down to these Good Years or a set of equally rated Falkens. I went for the Good Years based on how reasonable the price was at one of my usual local fitters. The car feels like I've got in something completely different. It has transformed the drive and handling immeasurably. I am absolutely staggered at how well these tyres cope in corners particularly with a front-heavy transverse mounted V6 inside an already heavy car. Understeer was a massive problem in the Saab previously and it made it a chore to drive at times of wet or cold weather. These tyres cope incredibly well on wet tarmac as well as dry. I've not been unlucky enough to encounter anything severe enough to cause aquaplaning just yet but I've no doubt they will do just fine. I can't fairly comment on wear as I've not owned them long enough. My only criticism if I absolutely had to provide some is they aren't really noticeably quieter than any decent mid-range tyre and would fall in to the average category. But the improved handling far outstrips any disappointment!

Had Continentals on before and they were awful, Merc 350 Coupe is utterly transformed with these Goodyears on.. Merc is lovely to drive now, where before it was all over the shop
