Buy the 595 RSR's for autocross. They are great for that. From what I have heard, once they get heated, like long track sessions, they start to get greasy. These are not for the average street driver though.

yeah, since this initial thread I've gone through a few tires. I went back to my stocks and wanted to go cheap so I bought a new set of federals all around. The only issue I have now, is like what David said earlier, the sidewalls are soft and you can feel them giving a bit in the corner, especially because i'm running a little bit of bubble.

Ive had a pair on my previous cars and ive always liked them. I plan to run them on my 19" setup. In the end I would say it depends how deep your pockets are or how much you want to spend and also how you drive your car. If you are just dalying your car and nothing too agressive id highly recomend. Price/function its hard to beat. But of course theres better tires that also cost upwards and over double the price. So again it all depends. Sorry to bring this from the dead but I would like to say I am overall impressed with the looks, quality, and of course price. You do sort of get what you pay for in a sense when it comes to these however remember a continental 19 vs say 595ss 19"tire price will tell you why i say it is only in a "sense" what you pay for. I believe a lot of people that buy there cars with high end tires or buy high end tires dont use it hardly for what they were designed for. Sad but true. Hope this helps someone in there decision. But again it depends how much you want to spend and the type of driving you do. Weigh out whats worth more....

Great tires

I live in Oregon and have had these on my zhp for 30k miles and absolutely love them. Grip in my opinion is spectacular both wet and dry. Had to avoid something in the road at 60 mph in the wet and fully expected the back end to come loose on me. Stayed firm and planted, they still have plenty of tread on them also. Another point for these cheap tires. I'll have them put on my car again for sure.

Seems like a decent tire for the price if u only drive the car during nice weather, which is perfect for me Any more reviews on these? How about sizing compared to all the more expensive summer tires out there? I need to get some 255/35/18 or 265/35/18s. Do they really run a lot bigger/wider like I've read on the Subaru forums?
