Questions and Answers for the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6

2022-08-14 - Has anyone compared these to the supersports? Currently running f1 supersports all round on a vauxhall astra mk5 vxr, 280bhp front wheel drive, tempted to give these a try as the car is only a daily with occasional spirited back road driving, one thing that made me go for the supersports was the firm sidewall as I previously ran rainsport 3s and the handling was terrible due to the soft sidewalls so not wanting to loose the sidewall feeling of the supersports

We've not directly compared the Asym 6 to the F1 SuperSport but he educated guess is that while the asymmetric 6 will feel miles better than the RainSport 3 - a tyre notoriously soft on the sidewall, the F1 SuperSport should still have the edge in dry handling. These will be better in the wet, more comfortable etc.

2022-05-30 - Does this tyre work on an M135 xdrive (2013) with serial wheels (summer)?

If you can find the size needed then the Asymmetric 6 will be a good match for your M135.

2022-10-31 - Does the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymetric 6 tyre have a rim protector?

Rim protection can vary on tyre size, but the sizes of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 we've worked with have had a small rim protector.

2023-01-07 - Has anyone else noticed a worsening of fuel economy with the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6. I had 4 fitted (Audi Q3) and its coincided with a significant fuel economy reduction (approx. 15%)?

What tyre did you replace? A worn tyre has around 15% better rolling resistance due to lower tread depth, so if you replaced something similar, that might explain the drop.

2023-04-05 - Any idea on how thesel hold up with light track work? Heading to the Nurburgring in June and wanted to fit a set of F1 Supersports, however they have been out of stock in 245/35/18 since October, so looking for an alternative for my 2013 M135i

The Asym 6 does not take heat as well as the SuperSport, but it's still reasonable good for its category. If your driving style is VERY aggressive on track they might not be the correct tyre for you, however the 'Ring has quite a low grip surface and long straights there's a good chance they'll be ok.

Top 3 Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 Reviews

Given 100% while driving a Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk7 Clubsport 40 Edition (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 and feedback were fantastic, along with being very safe in the wet. When my front tyres reached the end of their serviceable life after 11,000 miles, I was more than ready to get the newer Asymmetric 6's fitted on the front of my car.

I'm simply over the moon with them already. Having covered about 1,000 miles on them in very mixed driving conditions, they have blown me away. They offer *everything* I could ever want from a tyre. They are extremely grippy in the dry and wet, the feedback is great, the ride is very comfortable and the price is very reasonable for a top tier tyre. I drove home in heavy rain last night and I drove the car hard to see how the tyres would handle hard driving in the wet and they did not miss a beat. I was amazed how they put the power down on wet roads and the grip offered in corners. It actually felt like I was driving on a dry road. Incredible.

I had the Michelin PS4's a few years ago and I did not like them at all, they were too soft and struggled to keep up with my hard driving. I trialled the Eagle F1 Supersports when they first came out - they sound like the obvious choice for a sports hatchback - I found them excellent when warmed up on dry roads but they were nowhere near as confidence-inspiring in the rain and actually quite scary on wet roads. That's why I got the Assym 5's fitted after them and was very happy with my choice. And now I have the 6's I am even happier. These tyres are simply fantastic - stupid amounts of grip. I recommend them to everyone. The UK has such mixed weather that I think these just offer the best all round driving experience. They really, really suit the characteristics of the Mk7 Golf GTI. I got them when on offer - £183 for 2 fitted. An absolute steal. Get these tyres, you will not be disappointed. I will certainly be getting them again next time round.

Amazing tyre, I replaced a Pirelli P7 run flats with these and although it is an unfair to compare them as they are totally different from one another, the difference is night and day. The comfort is now at a different level, the noise levels are significantly lower, the dry and wet grip are amazing too. It was between them and and the Michelin ps5 , but I’ve had the previous model asymmetric 5 and I really liked them, not to mention the price difference. Initial feel is good and I like them a lot , happy with the purchase . More to follow.

I moved from the Asymmetric 5 to the new Asymmetric 6 a few weeks back, and while I don't know about wear, everything else seems better. The handling is improved and noise in the car lower.

Given 93% while driving a Mercedes Benz E350 CDI Coupé 231hp (235/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 1,500 spirited miles
Well, the tyres are INCREDIBLE. Grip like hell, have a very easy to predict behaviour at the limit. But that's the usual with these tyres. There are things about them that people do not talk about:

0. Very important! These tyres are incredibly sticky and collect a lot of debris, especially on dry dirt roads. They will chip off some paint on the lower back bumper because of this. Get some PPF on that part and it will be fine. This is the only negative I could find.

1. Rim protection!! My god it is a saviour. I had to mount a kerb due to an oversized truck coming the opposite way and the wheel came down at an almost parallel angle. The protection did its job wonderfully.
2. There is some noticeable tyre noise at around 80kph on rough roads, but on fresh tarmac they are very quiet at all speeds.
3. Speaking of rough roads, I live in Romania and they are commonplace here. Moon craters in the middle of the road as well. I can say that the tyres are in great shape, there is no abnormal rubber abrasion.
4. Now I don't know where Jonathan gets his tyres from, but mine have a different sidewall which looks pretty sexy. The tyre pattern looks very premium as well, unlike the PS5's in my opinion.

Get this tyre. It is worth every penny.

Given 100% while driving a SEAT Leon 2.0 Tsi 190 (225/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 6,000 average miles
Moved from the assy 5 to the assy 6 and the 6s are better in every way apart from the lower new tread depth of 6.7mm. (225/40/18) After 6000 miles on rear tread is 5.7mm and 2000 miles on the front 5.9mm so I should get about the same mileage as I did from the assy 5s. Grip in the wet or dry is great and these tyres have good kerb protection for your alloys.

I had the Michelin PS4 before, but the Goodyear Assy6 are better! I have the 225 40 18 on 8.5j rims (they are stretched, yes) but they are really great,I recommend them! Dry grip, wet grip, braking, noise,road feedback - all of these are good (compared to the PS4 some even better).

Given 79% while driving a Skoda (225/40 R18) on mostly country roads for 9,500 spirited miles
Moved to these from the Pirelli PZ4s. The Asym 6 is quieter and isolates road imperfections better. The PZ4 has a meatier sportier ride and personally I liked the quality of the sound in-car. I found the PZ4s balance to be touch further towards the front axle on the estate VRS than the completely neutral Asym 6. Both tyres maintaining their same balance in the dry and damp. The roads I drive hardly ever get standing water even after heavy rain. With the PZ4s I wanted to push the car harder, be less precise and throw the car about. But, the VRS’s stability control doesn’t like that and even with the stability turned to sport it’s pretty unpredictable how it will brake the wheels. With the Asym 6 it’s more fun to be precise, clipping drains and catseyes, enjoying balancing front and rear grip, the VRS’s stability control likes that more as you can balance the Skoda on the throttle rather than off it. At “kids in the car” brisk pace the Asym 6 is more fun. On your own, pushing harder, the PZ4s give more feedback. Both lose traction predictably with the PZ4s being noisier when they do. Overall the Asym 6 is a more rounded tyre. I can see why it wins all the tests. The PZ4 will never beat it in a test unless subjective (sporty) feel and wet handling is weighted very highly and even then the Asym might nudge it.…..the Asym does have a weakness that you won’t read about in tyre tests. On roads with compressions, especially those caused by subsidence on one side of the road, the tyres run out of control - as in damping, sidewall control. This is a pretty big deal with the roads I drive. Upping pressures helps but mainly ups the frequency of the oscillations and above 36.7psi on my gauge gets skittish in the damp.

I got two punctures at 9500 miles which means and early move to new tyres. I’d just rotated the tyres at 7k with the fronts at 3mm and the rears at 6mm. I know I know they needed switching sooner. It’s looking like I would have got the same 15k out of the Asyms as I did the PZ4s.

Very impressed with these so far; fitted to my 2015 BMW F31 touring I bought the car with OEM 19" alloys with RFTs. They were removed ASAP and sold; I then fitted OEM 18s with RFT winter tyres and they were a marked improvement over the 19s; a lot less tramlining and harsh ride etc... I've now fitted 235/45/18 Goodyear Assym6s to the car on 18x8 OEM alloys all round and the car now rides and handles superbly. Smoother, quieter and little to no tramlining at all unless it's a really bad road. The car rides over potholes much better (I still do my best to avoid them) and on the country roads that surround where I live; it's overall like a different car! I'll be fitting 18" non RFT winter tyres to the other set of 18s once I've had them refurbed; I'd never run RFTs again I can't comment on wear as haven't done enough & won't do enough miles to know unfortunately; but if you're after better, grippier (wet & dry) tyres that offer better comfort and a smoother/quieter ride; I'd highly recommend these. More so as I got them £250 cheaper than the Michelin PS5s, which is hell of a saving for a tyre that's nigh on neck n neck with the PS5s!

Given 80% while driving a Audi S4 (255/35 R19) on mostly town for 5,000 easy going miles
Got new rims so put on F1A6. Used to run 1 inch less rims and had PS4 and S001. Overall F1A6 feels like the tire for 90% commute and 10% sport. It grips well when driving fast, but the side wall is a bit too soft in harsh turns. When in commute, it is quiet and comfortable, however, sometimes it has this weird resonance at around 110-120km under some particular pave condition (not necessarily old paves, sometimes newly paved road can cause it too), which is very annoying. To me, the problem of this tire is it doesn’t do anything very good and is kind of mediocre for everything. Aqua planning is not as outstanding as some other tire such as PS4. But it is good enough if you don’t live in somewhere rains everyday and have pond everywhere on the road.

Can’t score these on anything other than noise which for a premium tyre should not be this bad. Cabin noise is way too loud at anything over 30 mph. These lasted less than 500 miles before needing to swap for something with acceptable noise limit. Don’t be fooled by the “comfort” score on these. They feel as bad/loud as the runflats I had on a Mini Cooper S.

I've been using these tyres for half a year now and they feel great. Though i must say dry grip is kinda offset by the quattro system, i still barely have any wheelspin, even in the rain, with a stage 1 tune.
