Given our history, over 60 years in the business of keeping our customers safe on the road, it will not surprise anyone that we are stocking the newly launched Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5, our next generation UHP tyre. The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 was conceived as "the ultimate all round summer tyre" and Goodyear is rightly excited. So are we.
The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 follows the success of the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 range and the improvements are impressive. The F1 was hailed as a major improvement in mileage and braking and the Goodyear F1 Asymmetric F5 takes that advance much further.
The Goodyear safety pedigree is second to none. This is a company that leads rather than follows. Older motorists will remember Sir Robert Mark, arguably the most able individual to hold the office of Commissioner of The Metropolitan Police in modern times. He caused something of a national shock when, shortly after he retired, he appeared in TV Ads for Goodyear Tyres stating "I’m convinced that they make a major contribution to road safety." He went further when in one Ad he stood on a wet road and a car driven at 30mph made an emergency stop and came to a halt inches from him. He then pointed out that the new Goodyear Tyres fitted to that car would stop you on a wet road, driving at 30mph, four feet shorter than previous tyres. That four feet of course would have killed him.
It was powerful stuff and the new Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 comes from the same heritage. The Eagle Asymmetric 5, according to the Goodyear Tyres is superior to the Eagle Asymmetric F3: Wet braking is 4 per cent shorter thanks to a newly optimised contact patch. That 4 per cent could make a huge difference in a whole variety of situations.
Every one of our tyre centres will fit the new Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 to your car and they will fit them at a price you will find hard to beat. Just like the tyre.
