Porsche Chooses Goodyear Eagle Asymmetric 2 for New 911

Goodyear Philippines just shared this bit of good news which talks about their newest high-performance tire, the Goodyear Eagle Asymmetric 2 as well as an iconic sports car called the Porsche 911:

Press Release
Porsche Chooses Goodyear Asymmetric 2 for New 911

Goodyear announced recently that Porsche has chosen its award winning Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 tire for the popular 19” wheel fitment on its Porsche 911 Carrera 2. That means that one of the world’s leading sportscars will be fitted with the 235/40 ZR 19 (front) and 285/35 ZR 19 (rear) Goodyear tires when first delivered to the customer. Goodyear’s Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 was recently awarded the top score by the UK’s Auto Express.

Tire choice is extremely important on cars like the 911. The Porsche has a rear engine configuration which offers outstanding traction, but requires the ability of the rear tires transfer the 350 break horsepower to the tarmac to ensure the full performance of the car.  Goodyear’s Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 tire will meet this need thanks to its recognized solid performance and quality credentials.
