Default Goodyear asymmetric 2 new name?

I took my car to the garage for a full service and told them I wanted new tyres, goodyear asymmetric 2. They called me back saying the name of these have changed but they are still exactly the same tyre. I am finding this a little suspicious as I cant find anything online about goodyear changing the name of these tyres and if they did it would be on their website? When I pick my car up I will be comparing the tred to a picture online. Do tyres have different names for the same tyre or is this garage trying to rip me off?

You have no reason not to believe them. Tires get rebadged and rebranded all the time.

How do I confirm it once I see them?

I don't think you need to confirm anything in this case.
