The new Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 is the latest premium sports tire in the family of the Eagle F1 Asymmetric tires that delivers strong grip, improved handling and helps drivers perform proper vehicle control responses, delivering a shorter braking distance at 2.6 meters on wet conditions. The new Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 also features improved tread wear and offers up to 11,500 km of extra mileage.

The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 features unique Active Braking technology that comes with three key functions including innovative 3-D block design in the tread that increases the contact surface and grip, effectively delivering braking efficiency; a unique dual-layer asymmetric tread design that helps maximize braking efficiency and delivers shorter braking distances on wet conditions for the ultimate in safety and confidence; and a high-surface silica tread compound commonly known among international car racing to reduce heat generation when traveling at high speeds on both dry and wet conditions.
