Strengths and weaknesses?
Excellent dry and wet traction and performance, and commendable road manners. Treadlife is improved over its predecessor, and is now on pace with the leaders in the category.
The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 does lack some of the outright performance of the category leaders from Michelin, Bridgestone, and Continental. For example, it's not as capable in terms of sheer performance as the Michelin Pilot Super Sport.
How does the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 compare?
In 2010 Tire Rack comparison testing, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric finished third in final overall rankings, just behind the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position and class leading Michelin Pilot Super Sport.
Subjective user feedback places the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 just ahead of its predecessor -- eighth out of twenty-nine max performance summer tires.
Anything else to know?
Treadlife and value have been improved, but it has to be said that the performance advantage over the original Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric is incremental at best.
Which means that the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 still falls short of the category leaders in terms of outright performance. We prefer the equally affordable Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position and Continental ExtremeContact DW, but the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 is a solid overall option that has, importantly, finally come down to earth on cost.
