Make Sure Your Tires Are Properly Inflated This Winter
As the temperature drops, so does tire pressure. Underinflated tires are dangerous to drive on in winter weather. Make sure your tire pressure monitoring system sensors are working properly before it is too late. Shop ACDelco TPMS Sensors.

IN THE WET THESE TIRES ARE AWFUL (for even mildly aggressive driving).
Kyle W.
Didn't like that feeling a bit, so I took her home and did a little research on the Net on tire pressure and handling.

On fry they are noisy and you won't know when they let go their grip until it's too late.

There are some decent budget tires available from a bunch of companies like Kumho, and a few others. Unless you drift race, i.e. drive these anywhere but a track, don't put yourself or friends in danger. These tires, in wet, are absolutely abysmal. On fry they are noisy and you won't know when they let go their grip until it's too late. I am surprised someone hasn't reported these to some Regulatory agency for banning. Good luck!

Would not recommend if you live somewhere with consistant precipitation. Very loud; road noise drives me crazy unless I crank the stereo. If you're looking for some cheap summer tires these are good deal.

So, I wanted to try to get good tires for my 2006 Scion TC at a reasonable price, and try to do it all cheaper than if I went to some shop and had them do it. So far, that mission has worked out well. I bought my four SS-595's here on Amazon, and then had them mounted and balanced at Wal Mart for a scant $33, nice! They informed me that they don't do alignments, so that will have to wait. For now, it's tolerable.

Anyway, my first impression of driving on these was surprise at how much quieter my car was at speed on the asphalt. This was a big relief because I'd seen so much bitching and complaining about them being loud. To be sure of what I was experiencing, I took her out onto I-75 and ran her up to 100mph just for about 30 seconds. Still very quiet, and very smooth compared to the horribly falling apart tires that had been on her (Triangles on the rear, Nexens on the front, and all four very worn out. The Nexens had begun to split in the sidewalls!) I did hit a couple of patches of concrete that made her a lot louder for a second or two, but on the asphalt she was just ghostly quiet, so actually a nice change from the tire noise I had before.

I did notice that the car felt completely different. Part of it was the lack of vibration, which is very nice, but also there was a strange kind of "loose" feeling about her... like a sponginess. I took a few curves just a little hard, and verified it - she felt like the ass end wanted to slide out on me. Didn't like that feeling a bit, so I took her home and did a little research on the Net on tire pressure and handling. I noticed that one person wrote that they used the stock pressures, which are differential of 32 PSI front and 29 PSI rear.

i used around 30 of these last drift season and loved them, and yes thats what they are designed for ( reason they are in top D1 with kenda kr20's ) they have high grip and of course as with any federal tire they are naturally wider. a 215 is the the same width as a 225. keep that in mind when ordering. also... totally did not pay this crazy price for them, paid 4,550 yen shipped to my shop ( around $55 ) each. the sidewall on these tires are very stiff with make transitions in corners very easy as you dont get that crappy body roll that you could get from some $300 falken tire. if you mount these tires your self, word to note--> use alot of lube! with a 250whp 180sx i was able to use these tires for about 10 laps, since these tires are so soft i had to move to a newer tire that would last longer... not even going to mention the name since america is greedy for money and wont offer a $20 tire. out of all the federals i have used, they lasted as expected, very responsive, very predictable and consistant. also, if you track these and the track temp is around 100 degrees F. make sure you have the psi set around 54-57 because if you have them set in the 40's the soft tire compound will shread to fast, even bubble up ( at track temp 120 set at 45psi ). if you need good grip tires check out the federal 595 RSR. compare them to AD08's and i can guarantee you will be happy, i have over 20 hours on those and still have gobs of tread left!
