I purchased this tire for my weekend racing set for a stock 2005 BMW 325i that is autocrossed. This tire is a directional tire so be mindful of how you mount the tires on the rims and on the vehicle. I was in a rush swapping tire sets and mounted two of the tires on the vehicle in the wrong direction and was surprised because the reversed tires were only about 6 psi higher than the others at the end of a 20 minute run with no indication that the tire was close to getting overheated. That same day the track saw 145 F temperatures and while things were definitely slick on the track these tires took it all in stride and didn't drastically change in handling and predictability in the extreme heat. Definitely a great all around budget racing tire.

I bought these tires because they had great reviews and were the most affordable tires I found in my particular size, 255/55-17. I have been very happy with them so far. I am hoping that since the tires are popular with the "drift crowd", that they will be long lasting.

Tires are pretty noisey, but they are a great "cheap" tire. I have had several sets of the Federal 595RS-R and I love those tires, but these were fro my daily, so didn't need all of that. Definitely would buy them again!

One of the tires while being installed on the wheel, crumbled (around the sidewall of the tire). I sent pictures to the manufacturer with the tires structure asking for any warranty info on the tires. No one has gotten back to me yet. Maybe you can respond that question for me hear. What kind of warranty if any does the tires have should the side wall crack again while being installed? Travis middleton

Got these tires because I had seen good reviews on them and honestly they haven't disappointed. We got snow shortly after they were mounted onto new rims and the car handled well in it. Have them on my Evo 8 and I love them. They are somewhat noisy on the road but I got used to that quick.

Buying experience was great, simple and no BS. I'd definitely go to these guys again. The Federal SS595 does great in the dry and is fairly impressive on a dry track. However, I couldn't even keep with a Focus ST on all seasons in the wet on track. It must be the asphalt grade, because in the wet on public roads they are pretty confident and sure-footed. So far, these are a great bang for the buck, especially for a cheaper priced tire. The fronts (225/40/18) are new and I don't have enough miles on them to get an idea for their lifespan. The rears (265/35/18) came on the car at time of purchase (july/2014) and I had to replace them prematurely due to a crack from the outside shoulder tread across the sidewall and heading to the bead. However, they had about 12k miles on them and needed to be flipped due to the amount of negative camber in the rear suspension. Based on that, I'd expect about 25k miles of life to be had from the rears, which probably isn't bad for a 240 treadwear rating. I've gotten less out higher rated tires. Also, the tires have great response to steering inputs but don't make you feel every crack and rock on the road. Being that I HAD to select a start rating for every category, I gave Winter Traction a single start because these didn't look anything like a winter tire and I assumed it wouldn't do good in 2-3" of snow or below freezing temps.

Super fast shipping at the best price I could find. I will be using Simple Tire in the future.

Decent tire for the price. I had the same size tire before these in a different brand, but these seem to have a larger sidewall and now rub my fenders and other places on the car. The compound is very soft which leads to squirm during cornering and inconsistency

Horrible.....can't wait to get new tires. Ride very hard and the road noise is the worst.
