Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3
The Eagle F1 GS-D3 RunOnFlat is
Goodyear's Max Performance Summer, self-supporting run-flat radial
initially developed for Maserati Quattroporte sedans, as well as
Ferrari F430 Coupes & Spiders. Eagle F1 GS-D3 RunOnFlat tires excel
in wet conditions by delivering class-leading hydroplaning
resistance and traction, as well as competitive dry performance.
Like all summer tires, it is not intended to be driven in
near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.
The Eagle F1 GS-D3 RunOnFlat tires feature Goodyear's AAtrax tread
compound molded into a distinctive wet weather racing-derived
OneTRED directional tread design and earns the highest AA Uniform
Tire Quality Grade wet traction rating. The Eagle F1 GS-D3
RunOnFlat's OneTRED design combines three distinct patterns to
enhance dry and wet performance. A solid and continuous center zone
maintains constant road contact to enhance straight-line tracking
and initial steering response. Next, sweeping intermediate power
transfer bridges use "virtual rib" technology that emulates racing
slicks by delivering shoulder-to-shoulder tread contact to further
enhance steering response and dry road cornering traction. Then,
sweeping aquachannel grooves, which are three times longer than the
tire's contact patch, angle forward and out to the edges of the
tread to avoid trapping water between the tire and the road
enhancing wet traction and hydroplaning resistance. And finally, the
virtual ribs flow into the shoulder area to form long, stable
shoulder blocks that grip the road during cornering and help resist
the wear associated with aggressive driving.
The tire's structure includes twin, high-tensile steel belts
reinforced with spirally wound nylon that distribute the vehicle's
load across the tire's footprint to provide high-speed durability
and uniform ride qualities. Internal construction enhances steering
precision and high-speed stability while the tire's reinforced
sidewalls are capable of temporarily supporting the weight of the
car even when all the air pressure is gone. Exterior sidewall rim
flange protectors help guard wheels from curb damage.
NOTE: RunOnFlat tires are only recommended for vehicles that are
originally equipped with self-supporting run-flat tires and equipped
with a tire pressure monitoring system.
