Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric for X5

Hi Gary,

I've been looking at the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric tires for my X5 in 255/50R19 size. Tirerack.com shows that these tires are summer tires, however all the reviews talk about all-season tires. Are the Tirerack tires truly a summer tire or are they indeed all-season? Thanks!

There are two Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric tires in 255/50R19, the F1 Asymmetric A/S, and F1 Asymmetric SUV. As you might imagine, the A/S is the all season version, while the Asymmetric SUV is the summer tire.

Gary, what is the reason of this discount now on the assymmetric SUV ? Some persons think thats because they are 4 years old tires... Why so few reviews ? I need smooth tires also for my x5. Thanks to comment...

This special can be match with a possible futur discount/prepaid card from goodyear.

How theses tires compare vs continental dws for the smoothest ride ?

Tires in our inventory are showing from production in the last two years. We often get special buys on random tire sizes and models.

I would expect the Continental Extreme Contact DWS to have a softer ride between the two.

The F1 Asymmetric A/S is 255/50R19 is indeed an XL tire.
