The Eagle F1 Sport tyre is one of the more affordable high-performance tyres in the Goodyear Eagle F1 series. This tyre is ideal for performance car owners who are looking to enjoy the maximum driving performance out of their vehicles, as well as sport passenger car owners who would like to make their everyday drive much more exciting, as it provides improved handling and braking performance. For the driving enthusiasts and aficionados, the Eagle F1 Sport is also an ideal tyre option for upsizing, as it is specially designed to increase steering response, improve dry handling, enhance cornering abilities and also give the vehicle a more aggressive appearance. This mid-range sport tyre combines Goodyear’s innovative technology on the race tracks with the durability and comfort of road tyres to offer excellent handling and braking performance under different weather conditions.

Alex Ng, Managing Director of Goodyear Malaysia said: “The Eagle F1 range is the embodiment of Goodyear’s long history of involvement in the racing arena. With the introduction of the Eagle F1 Sport, we aim to continuously uphold Goodyear’s manufacturing quality and technological capabilities of our research and development team, by providing more high performance tyre options for the day-to-day road user, at competitive prices for Malaysians.”

Precise and Responsive Handling

As with all tyres that are part of the Goodyear UHP family, the Eagle F1 Sport features a signature Eagle Claw tread design that comes with stronger shoulder blocks. Equipped with ActiveControl Technology, the shoulder contact patch of the tyre is maximised and its stiffness is increased to improve the cornering stability and steering precision when negotiating bends and corners.

Quieter performance

Leveraging on this unique tread design, this tyre also comes with noise barrier strips, which are made of rubber and placed between the ply and liner to provide a quieter and smoother ride. This design is enhanced by the availability of narrower lateral grooves on the tyre to further reduce vibrations and road noise for a comfortable ride.

Superior Braking Performance

Supplementing the handling precision of the Eagle F1 Sport is Goodyear’s DynamicBraking Technology. The combination of the Eagle Claw tread and high silica loaded tread compound with upgraded polymer matrix enhances braking capabilities on both wet and dry surfaces. Furthermore, an improved cavity shape provides a wider footprint for better contact and pressure distribution.

To top it off, wide rim flange protectors are available on all sizes of the Eagle F1 Sport, which helps protect the tyres and its rims from accidental curb damages while manoeuvring and parking, for added peace-of-mind.

Eagle F1, Born for Racing

For 65 years, Goodyear remains the exclusive tyre supplier of The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) in America. This is in fact one of the longest-running supplier relationship formed in the history of not only racing but within the sports industry as a whole. Goodyear is also the first tyre company to win 368 Grand Prix races in 1998 and has achieved 14 overall wins for the 24 Hours of Le Mans since 1966. Goodyear has also developed a new range of tyres for the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC), one of the biggest racing events in the world, being the official tyre sponsors for 3 major racing teams.

“Goodyear is no stranger to the importance of tyres and the art of performance. With the Eagle F1 range, our consumers should expect to experience our cutting-edge technology catered for performance on the racetracks, fitted right on their everyday cars for city road driving. As we continue to innovate and develop cutting-edge tyre technology for motorsports, consumers can expect for more powerful and resilient products to be coming up in the future,” Ng concluded.

The Goodyear Eagle F1 Sport is now available at all Goodyear AutoCare centres across Malaysia, retailing between RM294 to RM678 per tyre.

I hope the price is comparable with RE003.. then I can stop procrastinating and try this instead. In fact I hope it's cheaper.

Based on just quick comparisons with RE004 prices on 16' sizes, it is cheaper.

I wonder how does this compared to toyo tr1? Toyo probably cheaper right?
If I were to bet my money, I'd choose the F1S because historically Goodyear has been consistently producing many of the best tires rivaling Michelin, while Toyo never really comes out with anything exceptional ever.
