I had the asym3 on the G30 and I was very satisfied, the asym5 is an even better tire.

after 2 seasons tire is awful on wet grip is horrible, much worse than my winter kleber HP3 tires. on dry road the ride is fine so far, but driving on wet is a night mare, as you are on ice

Did about 30.000km on them, before them I had the GY EfficientGrip (101 XL) and they were much, much better for my car. With the F1s I had a handling issue as the side wall appeared to be to soft (97 load index, no XL) and the car went all wobbly when going over pot holes. Likewise the car was unstable when making fast lane change maneuvers, it did a boat wobble which I hate. Looks like they are not suited for big sedans in this dimension, if you like driving a bit friskier. Also they wore quite fast and after 3 seasons they had to be replaced as the front had only 3mm left (I did switch front/rear every year). The braking was good in dry and wet. Will be looking at other tires this year. I also noticed a dip in the middle of the tire when I took them of the wheels.

Having replaced my ageing Continental Premium-contact 6's and looking over the reviews decided to buy some Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5's from reviews. Absolutely no issues with performance but the tire life sadly is not good - mine lasting a mere 4500miles (I cover 1000miles/month) so very disappointed as how soon I need to replace them. In hindsight looking at my records I did put these similar model Goodyear tires on 10-15 years ago and they also lasted a mere 4000 miles back then - I obviously forgot to check my history! So back to Continentals! The fronts are F1 V6 and to be fair are looking almost new so cant complain there.

Very good tire. Great on wet and dry. Best wear ever. I did 65.000km with this tires on 2.0 tdi Golf 7 Variant (185Hp, 430Nm). Sure i did swap tires from rear to front and back every 10-15.000km to male them wear even. I will buy again.

Before i left a review for these tires i wanted to have used them for a while. They were fitted in october 2021 and i have covered 12000miles on them. At first, these tires were pretty loud and i thought i'd made a mistake but after around 500 miles they were practically silent compared to the landsail tires my car had fitted when i bought it. During the summer, these tires have been superb, Wet or Dry, the car grips like nothing else and while its not a sporty car i can stick it into corners with confidence. Braking in wet & dry is brilliant. Wear, they are down to 5.5mm all round, i did rotate them front to rear in june or july just to balance out the wear. These are great tires HOWEVER, they do come with a warning for UK drivers who generally use the same tire all year round, these are high performance summer rubber and as such, turn rock solid below 3c, offer zero grip in the snow, understeer in the cold & wet if pushed too hard. Less then 1cm of snow will defeat them on a tiny incline. My car is a 2016 ford mondeo estate 2.0 diesel, remapped at 224bhp and 470nm, very little to no wheelspin if i have to accelerate quickly wet or dry. Would i buy again, 100%

Given 85% while driving a Saab Automobile 9 5 3.0 V6 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 500 spirited miles
Recently switched from a full set of Roadstones which I was getting tired of spinning up every time I tried to drive in the wet and were woeful at cornering at the first sign of any moisture. I generally research tires for a long time before committing to buy, and I had finally narrowed myself down to these Good Years or a set of equally rated Falkens. I went for the Good Years based on how reasonable the price was at one of my usual local fitters. The car feels like I've got in something completely different. It has transformed the drive and handling immeasurably. I am absolutely staggered at how well these tires cope in corners particularly with a front-heavy transverse mounted V6 inside an already heavy car. Understeer was a massive problem in the Saab previously and it made it a chore to drive at times of wet or cold weather. These tires cope incredibly well on wet tarmac as well as dry. I've not been unlucky enough to encounter anything severe enough to cause aquaplaning just yet but I've no doubt they will do just fine. I can't fairly comment on wear as I've not owned them long enough. My only criticism if I absolutely had to provide some is they aren't really noticeably quieter than any decent mid-range tire and would fall in to the average category. But the improved handling far outstrips any disappointment!

Had Continentals on before and they were awful, Merc 350 Coupe is utterly transformed with these Goodyears on.. Merc is lovely to drive now, where before it was all over the shop

Amazing tires, quite simply the best I've ever had. Absolute grip in the dry... But its the wet which amazes me more because this tire treats the wet like its dry!!

For the competitive price and above 8 scores across all parameters. This tire is truly a winner which offers the best advantages. The only down side is the tire could get a little noisy after 20,000km in my personal experience.

Given 40% while driving a Ford Fiesta ST180 (205/40 R17) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
Pros: + Good grip in the dry + Decent ride over bumps + Little road noise Cons: - Poor in rain & damp conditions. Does not need spirited driving to spin the tires. - Lacks steering precision due to softness of tire - Can be prone to sudden understeer, & this includes dry conditions - Quick tire wear - Drives badly once the tirewear reaches 4mm - Average steering feel Overall: These tires came with the car I bought 2nd hand. I wish they did not as I knew what to expect. I previously owned a Skoda Octavia VRS Mk2 which I got Goodyear Asymmetric 3s all round, & they were really bad. Understeer, delayed reaction & lack of steering precision. The Asymmetric 5s only improvement is better grip, but the same traits remain as the Asymmetric 3 because of how soft Goodyear tires typically are. The best Goodyear tires I have owned were the Asymmetric 2s on an old Skoda Fabia, that had great grip in the dry & even better in the rain. Goodyear should bring the Asymmetric 2s for those reasons. The tires on my current Fiesta need changing soon as the tread depth is down to the 3mm range & the handling feels sloppy, so I will change to another brand away from Goodyear.

Everything is good with this performance tires except it has hard rubber and hard drive on colder weather, (mornings and evenings). On hot periods of spring and summer shows excellent behavior on road.
