Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3R

The Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar is an exceptional performance sports tire

The American summer tire Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar is mounted on powerful sports cars. The product belongs to the class of ultra-performance tires: the manufacturer borrowed many technical solutions from professional motorsport. The tire exhibits high traction and grip when driving fast on dry paved roads.

Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar Specifications

In tire design, engineers have implemented a complex of transformations that allow the product to exhibit exceptional driving characteristics. The tire has acquired the following technical features:

  •     The multi-radius tire structure and reinforced carcass ensure uniform pressure distribution and stabilize product dynamics. The tire wears out slowly and exhibits a high precision steering response.
  •     The wide grooves of the drainage system collect moisture from the roadway and evacuate it outside the contact zone. The drainage system stabilizes grip and avoids aquaplaning when driving at high speed on wet surfaces.
  •     The enlarged outer shoulder area allows the tire to maneuver confidently, supporting it when cornering. The tire retains directional stability and predictability.
  •     A specialized rubber compound with a high content of silicic acids prevents premature tread wear, helps to establish stable bonds with the roadway, and provides elasticity when the air temperature drops.
  •     Cross-cut ribs dissipate heat from the tire and reduce the likelihood of premature wear.

The Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar is a racing tire for high-performance passenger cars. The product provides exceptional handling and maneuverability on summer capital surfaces.

Active CornerGrip

One of the features of this model is the Active CornerGrip technology. Its main functional purpose is to provide maximum grip and stability when cornering, as well as when making sharp maneuvers. To do this, North American tire workers have strengthened the sidewalls of the tire, which have become more rigid. As a result, the contact patch retains its shape and dimensions unchanged in any mode of movement.

In this case, the rigidity of the sidewalls is different, since the asymmetric tread pattern used in this tire unevenly distributes the external load over the contact patch. This allows the vehicle to transition very smoothly to the active cornering phase while maintaining excellent directional stability. This makes the steering process much easier, especially when driving at high speed.

Multifunctional tread pattern

One of the key features of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar is its asymmetrical tread pattern, which is unique in many ways. First of all, these are six longitudinal ribs, five of which have a block structure, i.e. consist of many separate elements. They create a large number of traction edges during travel, thus ensuring maximum efficiency, both during acceleration and during braking.

The only one-piece piece is one longitudinal rib located on the inner side of the tread pattern. It is on this part of the tread that the maximum pressure falls during straight-line movement. Due to its high resistance to dynamic deformation and massive dimensions, this tread element allows you to maximize directional stability at high speeds, as well as significantly reduce the response time to the steering wheel. As a result, the tire's handling has become sharpened, and the car is easier and more pleasant to drive.

Among the other strong features of this model, one cannot fail to note the high stability even at high lateral accelerations. This is the merit not only of the rigid sidewalls but also of the design of the shoulder areas of the tread pattern. They contain many massive rectangular blocks, the long sides of which are at right angles to the direction of travel. On the one hand, this made it possible to maximize the deformation resistance in the transverse direction, and on the other, to achieve a significant reduction in the braking distance.

And, of course, one cannot fail to mention the traditional strength of all Goodyear summer tires, such as grip on wet roads. This model is no exception in this regard. What's more, the Eagle F1 Supercar has a superior wet grip even when compared to Goodyear tires. This was achieved through a combination of an optimized tread design and a special rubber compound. However, first things first.

As mentioned earlier, five of the six longitudinal ribs of the tread pattern of this tire are characterized by a block structure. Due to this, the tread has an incredibly developed drainage system, saturated to the limit with transverse channels. This allows it to handle huge amounts of water from the contact patch with ease, providing excellent resistance to aquaplaning at speeds where most other tires will simply lose traction.

Another factor that provided this model with exceptional grip on wet asphalt is the rubber compound, or rather, some of its compositional features. In particular, it contains several polymeric compounds and silica, thanks to which a reliable and stable adhesion to a wet surface is ensured.

Speaking of the rubber compound, one cannot fail to mention one more feature of its composition. It contains a soot filler, of which, in general, a civilian tire contains the same amount in a rubber compound as in tires used in motorsport. This significantly increases the resistance of the tread to abrasion, which significantly extends its service life.

Advantages:

Low price. Famous brand. Do not whistle. These are not tires, but the creation of the gods. No wonder I had to alter the rims for them because it's worth it in full. The main advantage is that the rubber is good for racing as well as for normal driving, provided that you do not care about it, as this miracle is erased right before your eyes.

Flaws:

Subjectively, poor road holding, the wheels turn on dry asphalt even in third gear, I'm not even talking about a wet road, this is not driving, but a fight with the car. On the tracks, it rearranges very rigidly, but I think this is due to the low profile.
