Goodyear’s new Ultra-High Performance tyre Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 has been accredited with original equipment fitments on the new Porsche Panamera.
The tyre was approved with a mixed fitment – size 265/45ZR19 (105Y) XL on the front and 295/40ZR19 (108Y) XL on the rear.
Goodyear says that to answer Porsche’s requirements, the company developed the tyre by focusing on ‘ultimate handling performance with an eye on low rolling resistance’. The tyres will be marked ‘N0’ to indicate these are approved by Porsche as Original Equipment on its vehicles.
A key feature of Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 is the new grip booster compound, which ensures increased grip during braking and handling on both dry and wet roads. The new reinforced construction technology allows for steering precision and durability by delivering a stronger, lightweight construction also improving handling, cornering performance, tread wear and fuel efficiency.
“We are proud to announce that once again we have been chosen by a renowned car manufacturer such as Porsche to equip its new exciting vehicle,” said Nick Harley, Goodyear’s Managing Director OE Consumer EMEA. “Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 is the perfect match for the Porsche Panamera thanks to its state-of-the-art technologies, which will allow drivers to enjoy sporty driving by ensuring excellent handling in all conditions.”
