Goodyear’s Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 runflat to debut on US Chevrolet Camaro 2016
Chevrolet’s full line of 2016 Camaro models will roll exclusively on Goodyear Eagle tyres in USA. Chevrolet’s sixth generation Camaro has been redesigned from the ground up, and Goodyear engineers worked closely with its development team to engineer tyres to support its performance. The project, which included more than 13,000 hours of tyre development and testing, resulted in three fitments “tuned to the Camaro chassis,” according to Johann Finkelmeier, Goodyear’s vice president of North America original equipment sales.
In LT trim, the Camaro features standard 18-inch wheels with Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season in size 245/50R18. Also available are optional 20-inch wheels, with the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season RunOnFlat in size 245/40R20.
The Camaro SS features 20-inch aluminium wheels equipped with the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 RunOnFlat in size 245/40ZR20 (front) and 275/35ZR20 (rear), which will be supplied to Chevrolet in North America ahead of the third generation tyre’s full release in 2016. The tyre was extensively tested on the 2016 Camaro SS at a number of world-renowned race tracks, including Virginia International Raceway, Road Atlanta and Germany’s Nürburgring Nordschleife.
