Federal 595RS-R - User reviews

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!!!

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.

Grand tire. Excellent value for money. When you get the heat into them on the right track, they become very grippy and sticky.

Used tyre in road sport - KJS, Super OES etc. Very good drivability (better than the Toyo R888). The little wet R1r comparable to Toyo. At the Poznan track slick little worse than s. Persistence very high.

Good value handling, good traction on dry and wet roads, excellent drainage, short braking distance, a little loud for a speed of 50 km / h above the speed very quiet.

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.

very good in the dry and on track..... An excellent summer tyre..... they work surprisingly well in the wet, but when it get scold and wintery put some winters on ;) I have used these for everyday summer tyres, with numerous track days, and pound for pound you can't beat them!

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.
