The common misconception is that if you have an SUV, you don’t seek performance. While SUVs do represent a sense of practicality and “slowing down” in life, you do not have to compromise performance for it. Take Porsche for example. The Cayenne and Macan are practical in their SUV worlds but are also injected with the performance DNA and, in some variants, can even outperform sedan equivalents.
So when performance is back on the table, tyres become a significant component. SUVs are heavier and its tyres go through a different form of stress compared to sedans. Goodyear paid attention and have given us the Eagle F1 Asymmetrical 3 SUV. It’s twin brother, without the SUV, is already a class leading sedan performance tyre so it’s only fair to expect the same from the SUV variant.
Goodyear implemented technologies into the construction of this tyre to give it better Braking, Grip and Handling performance. These things allow SUV owners to push their near 2tonne family vans in the corners and be able to drive “spiritedly” with confidence. To feel it for ourselves, we slapped on a set of these badboys on a Porsche Macan and put it to the test.
