Have been waiting for the Goodyear Asy 3 for the past year. Launch in EU in 2016, hoping for it to be here late last year but until now still not launched. Heard that many sizes have yet to arrive including my VR size of 215/45R17. In the end cannot wait anymore so went for 225/45R17 which was available.

VR first use Goodyear way back in 2004 (really long time ago) and that was the Goodyear F1 Directional GS-D3, then the replacement Goodyear First Asymmetric in around 2008/9, then the Asy 2 in 2011. You can read on the Asy 2 here ( http://autoworld.com....agle-f1-asy-2/ )

Fitted my Asy 3 at Quicksave, USJ.

 

Not too much changed in the pattern, probably fine tuned and with new rubber compound

Sidewall design almost identical....lol

Since these tyres from EU, mine had EU labeling. Fuel efficiency C which is good for Max Performance tyres. Wet Handling is A, which is the highest rating and for Noise/Sound at 61dB which is also very quiet for a performance tyre

The Asy3 is said to be even lighter, but this round did not weigh it as I was using a difference tyre size.
Initial feel is smooth and quiet even though having super hard suspension and noisy exhaust....lol
The better ride should be due to the 1 ply sidewall, however even though is not so bumpy they are not soft. To me is a nice balance between comfort and performance.
The feel can be said like the Asy 2, so now bores down to it's performance and handling in wet and dry. Let me test further...... ;)

By this, I am sure you don't know your tyres. CC6 are entry level tyres, something like GY Ducaro and Duraplus, and MC5 like NCT5 and Excellence range. GY F1 Asy are Max performance range, of course these tyres are premium priced being in premium performance range
