Goodyear Eagle F1 Fiorano
Goodyear introduced its first Eagle F1 tires as Original Equipment on the 200 mph McLaren F1 in 1995. Since then they’ve added Eagle F1 Fiorano tires specifically developed for several Ferrari models, as well as, Eagle F1 Supercartires for the Shelby Series 1 & Chevrolet Corvette ZO6.
While only the Shelby Series 1 & Chevrolet Corvette ZO6 tires are actually identified with the “Supercar” name branded on their sidewall, all Eagle F1, Eagle F1 Fiorano & Eagle F1 Supercar tires are combined into Goodyear’s “Eagle F1 Supercar” family that includes the following Original Equipment applications:
The Fiorano (fi o ran’ o) name for the Ferrari tires is used in honor of Ferrari’s Fiorano proving grounds.
The tires for McLaren & Ferrari vehicles feature very large tread blocks formed into asymmetric & directional tread designs. Since each of these vehicles uses different front & rear tire sizes, they all require four separate “corner specific” tires. Eagle F1 tires feature just 8/32" to 9/32” of new tire tread depth (1/32” to 2/32" less than most other Max Performance tires) to assure quick responsiveness. Internally, twin steel belts (for strength & handling) are reinforced by spirally wound nylon (to enhance footprint pressure distribution & tire uniformity) & combined with a rayon cord carcass (for ride quality & high-speed durability).
