Outperforms everything else in its price range and is on par (with the exception of treadwear) with more expensive tires in dry conditions. Still grips better in rain than any all season tire ive ever used if warmed up a little (they warm up quick anyway) however, dont have as much hydroplaning resistance after they wear down some. Ranked top 20 out of 100 cars at a BMW autocross event using a mostly stock FRS (driver mod;)

great tire, as fast as the 'big names' at 1/2 the price. i get 6 treack days out of a pair then 6 more after switching them to the rear of a fwd car. this is unheard of in the fast tire community.

This is my second set and these 595RSR's and they are the best kept autocross secret there is. They last a full season of 22 races. My a6 Hoosier last only half as long and I must say the difference was minimal.

If crazy glue made tires, this would be the end result...dry grip makes you relearn what your car is capable of...wet grip is average, road noise is pretty bad tho...tread life, let's see...so far they are wearing nice esp for such low treadwear rating, and at that price, you simply CANNOT beat this tire!

Got these after reading rave reviews from other wrx/sti owners. I've done 2 autox events (stick like glue), had them in the rain, drove on unpaved roads and they have excelled in everything. They are silent too. 1500 hard miles with no sign of wear.

i have had a lot of questions about these Fed 595 tires, here's is what i have found after driving them for a summer. These are summer high performance tires only! not for people looking for anall season or winter tire!!!!.. the dry traction is amazing and really grips the road. but if your thinking of buying these for an all season all i can say is "good luck". price is great and the looks of them are very nice. the wet performance could be better and they are a little loud( nothing i nice set of exhaust or loud radio couldn't handle.. over id say these are great for that weekend warrior or 3 car for the summer kinda driver.. and i recommend them to anyone who need that specific kinda of tire
