    While the Oponeo website might think that MGs don't exist any more, I have fitted a set of these tyres to my track-going MGF. The conclusion in short is that I am delighted with my choice, and will definitely be buying these again! I am not sure how they can be beaten for value-for-money. The mid-engined MGs are extremely sensitive to tyres, but on road and track, I have absolute faith in these Federal RSRs. Even in the rain, and semi-flooded track conditions, the tyres appear to find far more purchase than you'd attribute to track-biased rubber. They are predictable, and have a nice, progressive breakaway when the levels of adhesion are eventually breached. After a season of hill-climbs, sprints and a few track days - plus all the mileage of driving to and back from these events, I am amazed that I still have 5mm of tread left after 3,000 non-so gentle miles. Genuinely, I don't think I could have asked for more!!!

    Only tyre I can really rate these in comparison with, is the popular Toyo R888 among avid track day and fast road users. At £108 a tyre, these are obviously a huge saving over the R888 which have quickly become quite an overated tyre since competing firms have developed their own track tyres. Apart from the epic level of grip in the dry and very surprisingly in the wet too, these tyres are extremely hard wearing and last as long as the basic budget tyres that people normally buy for the purpose of long life expectancy. I wouldn't hesitate to buy these again, even for my runaround.

    I use these as summer "dailys" and frequent track days.... tyres are very good, last reasonabley well and suprisingly good in the wet for a track focused tyre. awesome dry weather grip. I would recomend these, as the cost compaired to other track tyres is very competetive! some people mention a line forming across the tyre as they wear , and throw them out saying "failure" we have contacted federal, and its perfectly normal, and perfectly safe, just part of the manufacturing process. Never had one of these tyres fail.

    I race in tintop class of the classic car club and using these tyres has not only saved me a lot of money on the purchase price but also on the wear side.I have run both toyos and yokohama before and these tyres are better for wet grip and equal in the dry with better wear rate. Pressures do rise quite a bit from cold but do stabilise well. Would recommend these to everyone who is looking for good Base to start racing on.never driven on the road with them mind.

    I have had these tyres on my mitsubishi evo for about 8 months now. They are nearing the end of there life but I have been very impressed with how they have worn and how good they are in the dry. In the wet they are to be as expected with good grip if you do not forget that they are a very slick tyre. I might buy these tyres again next summer but for now i will be putting more winter orientated tyres onto the car as the winters are generally wet in the uk.

Federal 595RS-R features

Tyre details:

Every vehicle should have good tyres, which squeeze out the full power from the engine, maintain a constant driving comfort and provide a high road safety. Federal 595RS-R tyres are designed for drivers who like to drive fast or prefer strong vehicles even for a calm travel.

Federal 595RS-R tyres are the perfect model for anyone who prefers a sporty driving style and have a well prepared vehicle, or for the lovers of participation in amateur events in such events as Track Day or KJS. The model 595RS-R has been tested on racecourses and has every time received high ratings. For many years, Federal has been passionately developing sports tyres that present a high performance and at the same time ensure safe driving on dangerous roads.

The main assets of these tyres include optimum and even distribution of stiffness on the road surface. The even distribution of pressures at the centre and shoulders of the tread resulted in an improved grip of Federal 595RS-R to the surface and increased traction properties. Additionally, the tyres wear evenly.

The directional V-shaped tread pattern improves the tyre’s aerodynamics, as compared to the previous model, and minimises the risk of aquaplaning even at a high speed. The use of wide angle of notches makes the tyre stick to the track determined by the driver.

It is worth knowing that Federal 595RS-R has quite stiff side walls. This allows for cornering at full speed and for effective acceleration at straight road sections (the tyre perfectly adheres to dry surfaces).

Federal is a company from Taiwan, which is famous for high-quality tyres designed for amateur sport applications. The company was founded in the 1950s, and today they cooperate with such groups as Bridgestone. The technological support of the Japanese giant makes the Federal tyres even better.
