    • New top performance tire? Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport R & RS streetable track tires - Toyo R88R, Michelin Pilot Sport 2, and Pirelli Trofeo R rival

      Goodyear released some new high end rubber called the Eagle Supsport R and Eagle Supersport RS. The R is supposed to be more of a streetable high grip tire which likely will rival the Toyo R888R and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2.


      The Goodyear Eagle Supersport RS is a more hardcore track day tire that is still street legal and seems positioned against the Pirelli Trofeo R and Michelin Sport Cup 2R.

      Many of us are looking for sticky rubber that is still streetable with how powerful cars are getting. The Toyo R888R is popular for that purpose but tire technology evolves and cars certainly are not getting less powerful.

      Are these new offerings from Goodyear the tires to have? We will have to wait and see.

      There is a test of both tires on a Porsche 991.2 GT2 RS below but they are not compared to the rubber the car comes with. Regardless, the Superport RS turns a lap four seconds quicker than the already impressive R.

      A direct comparison of the top streetable track tires should come soon and we may have a new champion with these new Eagle Supersports.


      The Eagle F1 SuperSport R further increases grip levels and steering precision on and off track. Grip levels are enhanced through use of a high-friction compound that provides exceptional dry grip levels, while excellent cornering stability is ensured by bridges in the tread pattern’s inner groove reducing deformation of tread blocks under extreme cornering forces. Steering precision and feedback have also been further enhanced by optimizing the tire’s footprint for more consistent pressure distribution.


      The Eagle F1 SuperSport RS is Goodyear’s most race-focused tire, designed to push the limit on track while remaining road legal. A highly specialized racing-originated compound provides ultimate grip and performance levels in dry conditions.
