Auto-X-ZTS The 595 RS-R is the Federal "ST" type autocross tire.

They are inexpensive and are unlikely to best the known suspects--but might make for an autocross worthy / track day worthy daily driver.

wrc_fan Looking at the website, the 595EVO tires look like they may be better... I'm not a fan of long v type patterns in my tread. I have some crappy riken raptors right now as my DD tires, and they feel all sorts of squirmy under high cornering.

wrc_fan I haven't tried them, and I haven't seen anyone that was competitive run them on an autox. I'll stand by my RS-3s as a top street tire right now.

Anyone try the Federal SS595's yet??

I picked up a Mini Cooper S a few weeks ago and of course (as most of you know) I cant leave anything

I've already bought tires and wheels for it, did a little modding under the hood and exhaust, and coilovers are soon to follow (car just sets too high and doesnt feel as solid on the road as I think it should)

I chose the 595's because I've read really good reviews on other forums but i wanted to know if any of you guys have tried them.
