Porsche selects Goodyear for 911 GT3 RS

Goodyear is proud to announce its continued association with Porsche to homologate the Eagle F1 SuperSport R and SuperSport RS, the two most performance-orientated tires in Goodyear’s UUHP portfolio.

The designs of both tire specifications extract the most out of the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS supercar.

Pushing the limits of performance from a fully road-legal tire, Goodyear has developed a two-tire range for the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The unique high-friction compound of the SuperSport RS provides a refined track-focused experience in dry conditions, while excellent cornering stability is achieved by bridges in the tread pattern’s inner groove, optimizing the tire’s footprint for more consistent pressure distribution.

Meanwhile, the Eagle F1 SuperSport R is an ultra-ultra high-performance tire with greater scope for road usability. Like the SuperSport RS, performance is its primary function and gives Porsche 911 GT3 RS buyers an option to select the most suitable tire depending on their driving habits.

“We are immensely proud to have worked with Porsche once again on this project,” said Johannes Moll, Managing Director OE Consumer, Goodyear EMEA. “A vehicle as extreme as the Porsche 911 GT3 RS deserves a tire that matches it in every way. From traction, turn in and braking performance, drivers can feel the road surface underneath them, giving them confidence and pleasure. Goodyear has taken lessons from its motorsport history to develop its line of UUHP tires,” Moll explains.

“Our tires enhance the performance and handling characteristics of the most specialist machinery on the roads today. The way both tire specifications perform on the track and the road is a testament to years of research, development and Goodyear’s working relationship with manufacturers.”
