Kariega, South Africa, April 4, 2024 – Goodyear is thrilled to continue its prestigious partnership with Porsche by certifying the Eagle F1 SuperSport R and SuperSport RS tyres for the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. These tyres represent the pinnacle of Goodyear’s ultra-ultra high performance (UUHP) range, specifically engineered to enhance the driving dynamics of Porsche’s latest supercar.

The Eagle F1 SuperSport RS tyre, with its high-friction compound, is tailored for the track, offering unparalleled performance in dry conditions. Its design features innovative bridges within the tread pattern’s inner grooves, ensuring enhanced cornering stability by maintaining consistent pressure distribution across the tyre’s footprint.

On the other hand, the Eagle F1 SuperSport R tyre is designed for versatility, blending exceptional performance with the practicality needed for regular road use. This tyre choice caters to Porsche 911 GT3 RS owners, allowing them to select a tyre that aligns with their driving preferences, whether they prioritize track days or the joy of the open road.

Johannes Moll, Managing Director OE Consumer at Goodyear EMEA, expressed the company’s pride in collaborating with Porsche on this project. “The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is an extraordinary vehicle that demands equally exceptional tyres. Our Eagle F1 SuperSport range is designed to let drivers feel every aspect of the road, from traction and handling to braking, enhancing their confidence and driving enjoyment,” Moll stated. He further highlighted that Goodyear’s development of these UUHP tyres is informed by its extensive motorsport heritage, ensuring that both the SuperSport R and SuperSport RS tyres deliver optimal performance on both track and road.

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS comes equipped with the following tyre sizes, available in both the SuperSport R and SuperSport RS models:

  • Front: 275/35ZR20 102Y
  • Rear: 335/30ZR21 109Y

This collaboration underscores Goodyear’s commitment to advancing automotive performance through innovation and its strong partnership with leading car manufacturers like Porsche.
