BRUSSELS—German sports car producer Porsche A.G. has approved Goodyear's Eagle F1 SuperSport RS "ultra-ultra-high-performance" tire range for use on its 911 GT2 RS and 911 GT3 RS lightweight street/track cars.
Goodyear launched the Eagle F1 SuperSport at the Geneva Auto Salon in February, marking the tire maker's return to the "supercar" segment.
The approval does not indicate an OE fitment, per se, but instead means Porsche will be offering "N0"-marked Eagle F1 SuperSport RS tires through its dealer network in Europe to owners seeking performance and steering precision in dry conditions.
The homologation covers sizes 265/35 ZR 20 (99Y) XL and 325/30 ZR 21 (108Y) XL, Goodyear said, for the front and rear fitment on the 700 horsepower, rear-wheel-drive GT2 and GT3 RS models.
"In development of the SuperSport RS we have leveraged our talented engineering teams and world-class development facilities to produce a world-beating UUHP tire," Nick Harley, managing director of Goodyear OE in the EMEA region, said in a statement.
