"If you buy the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric, you're getting the highest level of performance potential," according to John Cadogan of Australia's Wheels magazine.
In January 2009, China's Xcar.com's 2008 Car Review recognised Goodyear's new Eagle F1 Asymmetric with the High Performance Tyre of the Year Award.
"Known as the 'King of Cornering', the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric tyre's outstanding high performance lives up to its global reputation. Receiving this prestigious award as recognition from experts in China makes us especially proud," said Michael Martens, Managing Director of Goodyear North Asia.

"An excellent Max Performance Summer tyre that almost does it all. In dry conditions, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric proved fastest of the group."
"Plenty of overall grip and a neutral front/rear balance made this tyre easy to drive quickly and at its limit. In the wet, the Goodyear again finished ahead of the other three tyres in this test, this time by a wider margin."
"On all three vehicles, we pushed the tyres to the limit and were pleased with how they performed," according to Eurotuner that has a circulation of 60,000 in the US.
Reviews from Europe
"A decisive win for the new Goodyear, with more table-topping performances than any other tyre," stated the magazine in its summary of the nine-tyre comparison.
"When it comes to grip, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric is a top class product in almost every test," Tuulilasi wrote.
"With a set of Goodyear [Eagle F1 Asymmetric] on, it was like attaching a turbo to the Mercedes' engine," declared experienced Autocar testerKeith Howard.
