Goodyear’s Ultra Ultra High Performance (UUHP) Eagle F1 SuperSport RS has been homologated for the Porsche 911 GT2 RS and Porsche 911 GT3 RS for the sizes 265/35 ZR 20 (99Y) XL and 325/30 ZR 21 (108Y) XL.

Goodyear developed the Eagle F1 SuperSport RS specially for Porsche Motorsport, with a brief to facilitate record performance on track.

The company says the racing compound maximises dry grip by combining very stiff tread elements with a reduced tread depth, minimising movement of the tread pattern in extreme cornering conditions and providing the driver with both maximum grip level and extremely precise steering behaviour.

Goodyear says the adapted tyre construction gives the Eagle F1 SuperSport RS an optimised tyre profile to increase size of contact in combination to strong Aramid winding to keep the pressure distribution constant in different driving conditions and at different speeds.

Finally, the tread design features a massive outer shoulder which has been designed to optimise transmission of all lateral forces and facilitate extreme cornering stability.

“In development of the SuperSport RS we have leveraged our talented engineering teams and world class development facilities to produce a world-beating UUHP tyre,” said Nick Harley, managing director of Goodyear OE in the EMEA region. “The tyre is designed to enhance the performance and handling characteristics of the most specialist machinery on the roads today and in vehicle manufacturer’s development pipelines.”
