The Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season is a race-inspired tire that offers strong ultra-high performance handling and all-season traction.

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. says that with the Goodyear Eagle F1 tire OE on 2015 Ford Mustang I4 and V6 models, the two brands continue to put style and performance on the pavement.

Goodyear says Eagle tires have been a key component on Mustangs over the past 50 years, and the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season tire as a standard fitment on 2015 Mustang I4 and V6 models continues that tradition. The company says early reviews of the redesigned Mustang are strong, as many experts and fans appreciate the signature looks, such as a long, sculpted hood and minimal rear deck.

The Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season tire features a specialized tread compound for enhanced wet and dry traction in any season, and TredLock Technology, with microgrooves that help provide biting edges for enhanced wet traction and lock together for confident grip in turns.

“With every Eagle tire, Goodyear strives to deliver superior performance to drivers who want attributes such as confident traction and handling,” said Tara Foote, Goodyear brand manager. “It is further validation when an expert such as Ford chooses to equip its ultra-popular Mustang model with Goodyear Eagle tires.”

Goodyear says its tires are on more new vehicles in North America than any other brand, including Acura, Audi, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Honda, Infiniti, Jeep, Land Rover, Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Porsche, Scion, Subaru, Toyota and Volkswagen.
