Tyre Review thread.

Recommended Posts

i think it would be worth putting retail, or as close to in the price box, im sure we all have hook ups to get them cheaper, but that doesnt really help people trying to get a idea of them all comparitively.

I Work and Drive for them, so sitting at my computer i only have wholesale prices.... If you check with Option1Garage on these forums he is selling out Federals at Great Prices, and has shipping deals also!

 

So that was my reason for not imputting prices, i couldn't tell you what they rrp for... As i have no clue...

 

Twisted_SIL80... haha it is nice to have a large number of rsr's sitting there to skid

anyway..... back to the review

 

At DSC i used toyo proxes 4's on the back and RE001's on the front.

 

both are an awesome tyre, i use RE001's as a streer tyre because they work from go, dont need warming up, and just grip in any condition, wet or dry! highly rate them!

 

 

Tyre Toyo proxes 4's

Price $130

Size used 195/50/15

PSI run 30 dry and 26 wet

Review - bloody awesome tyre, in the dry i found that they were very grippy and lasted ages. i acctually ended up pumping them up to 40 psi and maintiaining the pressures from there as there were a little too grippy for my KE70 with 190 rwkw. in the wet they were awesome! with only the R1R being better then these lol.

Wear - great, dead even, as long as they are maintained for pressures and not over heated.

Tyre: Federal 595 SS

Price: $100 each

Size used 235/45/17

PSI run: 35

Review - Very consistent tyres, not amazingly grippy but they do pretty well. Haven't delaminated one yet (used about 10 pairs so far) and the grip doesn't fade when they start to run low on tread. Wear pretty well too, usually use 2 pairs on a full track day, about 50% on a short track

Too High Tyre Pressures!!!

 

 

Tyre: Federal 595 SS

Price: N/A

Size Used: 235/45/17, 255 40 17, 275 40 17

PSI run: 24 psi big track 22psi small track

Review - Constantly Grippy, From New To Dead. Haven't ever demalanated one, have have used PLENTY. Coupled with RSR Steer Tire, they make a great package...

 

Front: Federal 595RSR Semi Slick

Price: N/A

Size Used: 235/40/18

Psi Run: 26psi cold

Review: Superior Grip, Still good on 4 wheel lock entries, Don't take ages to get warm, Never experience issues with using them basically cold, even on small tight technical tracks. Super Stiff Sidewall so no sloppy feel...

 

Rear: Federal 595 RSR Semi Slick

Price: N/A

Size Used: 235/45/17 255/40/17

Psi Run - 22-28psi cold

Sounds like this is a bit of a brag about sponsorship thread.

As if you dont know the rrp of the tyres you sell.

And if its sponsorship then you really should know the product your pushing

both the tranpaths and the hancooks you mentioned are budget passenger car radials... they are not the sort of stuff you'd want to be pushing hardon, just for A to B driving on mum and dad's commo.

 

if you want a good steer tyre, you'll need to spend a little extra and get one of the many tyres that have been mentioned already.

Tyre: mayrun

 

Price: $88 each (think retail is around 120 or 130)

 

Size used: 235/45 r17

 

PSI run: 35psi

 

Review - being my first set of brand new tyres ive used on the rear for drifting obviously im going to notice a large increase from 2nd handies regardless how good the tyre was. i thought they were quite good though. nice and cheap on the wallet but still had a good amount of grip. well alot better than 2nd hand tyres.

 

Wear - didnt delaminate, stayed good untill they popped. lasted me all day at oran park north in my ceffy with 190rwkw

 

will use them again :)
