    2022-01-27 - Can you tell me what tyre pressure to run for the track for Mustang

    Tyre pressures are vehicle specific so we recommended you start around what your manufacturer recommends HOT, so you will need to warm the tyres up then drop the pressures.

    Exceptional tyres for their value.
    OEM Yokohama V105's were worse...much worse not only in comfort but in both performance on dry and wet. Just the road feedback could be improved ...
    Very good tyre and w/o much info in the net was curious to try them and don't regret at all...

    Way better than the kuhmo ku39 I used before, despite they were a bit cheaper. Where the kuhmos were a bit sluggish when making corners at higher speeds, these give a much more stable feel. Really progressive at the limit and a predictable under/oversteer behaviour when playing with the balance of the car.
    Feel really planted in the wet and no problems getting the power down on a powerful fwd car without LSD, which results in less esp interferences than before
    Will buy them again!

    Half the price of the premium tire but NOT half the performance. Dry grip is pretty good after running in tires.

    Given 77% while driving a Nissan Stagea (245/45 R18) on mostly town for 5,000 spirited miles
    For the money, these are hands down the best tyres I've ever used. Half the price of something like a Pilot Sport 4 for at least 80% of the performance, which for most road cars is way more than enough grip. Plenty of dry grip in a 245 tyre and very little road noise for a performance tyre. Wet grip is where I notice the biggest difference between these and a top spec, expensive tyre. It's more than enough for how you should be driving in the wet, just don't expect to go to a wet track day and push it to the limit. All-in-all though, good grip wet and dry if a little unpredictable at the limit. Can't speak to wear but who cares how long they last when they're this cheap. Chuck a fresh set on every year and it still won't break the bank. Can't recommend enough.

    Given 80% while driving a Volkswagen Scirocco R 265 PS DSG (235/35 R19) on mostly town for 30,000 average miles
    I was recommended these by a friend and I was not disappointed. I don't race my car, but I like to corner hard and accelerate hard. These were almost half the price of Michelin PS4 in Australia. The tyre is very controllable and you have to work hard to make it lose traction, main buying point for me was performance and longevity.

    Not very noisy, good grip, even in the wet. Amazing tyre for the price. Would not replace Michelin PS4 or some Continentals with them, but would definitely consider these when choosing between Kumho, Hankook, Vredestein and other tyres in the price range.

    Given 82% while driving a BMW Z3 (225/50 R16) on track for 200 spirited miles
    I bought these tires because they were really inexpensive and I had a spare set of wheels. I use them for daily driving, but also on track. They aren't the fastest tire, but they do behave predictably when pushed hard. They have good (loud) audible feedback, which is useful in a track tire. Having slightly less grip on a track tire is actually more fun for me and also less physically taxing (my car has stock belts and seat). So even though I have faster tires, I think these are more fun. I would buy them again if I found them for the same low price.

    not a bad tyre in dry good handling and braking, didn't try it in the wet yet the negative thing is the tyre noise is too loud for my liking.

    Very good tyre. One of the most predictable and accurate I've ever tried. Better than a lot of famous brands

    Dry grip much better than a lot of high end tyres I've used including michelin, wet grip is really good you'd have to be a bit silly on the throttle to come unstuck, wear rate is good for the price good feedback they let you know when they're getting to the limit and I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again over much more expensive tyres

    Given 40% while driving a Fiat 500 Abarth (215/40 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 10 spirited miles
    I just pulled off a set of work and very hard Yokohama AD0R Neova 215/40 as it rains alot here and i was nearly falling off the freeway above 100kph in a straight line. My car is an Abarth 595 Competizione with fully adjustable coil-over suspension and a specialist alignment for track day use. Driving out of the tyre shop and around town the new tyres felt good and steering was light and smooth. A bit more speed and they were nice and quiet, i headed for the motorway to give them a proper run in and on my first lane change i was shocked and horrified!!! It honestly felt like they were all flat or something wrong with the steering. There's a massive delay in reaction from steering inputs and once straight the car wobbles back to centre again like on a playstation game. Hard braking and acceleration on both wet and drive tarmac proved that they do have some grip to offer but the way it steers is frightening now, cant wait to get them off!

    Given 50% while driving a Ford fiesta st (205/40 R18 W) on mostly country roads for 200 spirited miles
    I had HIGH expectations after reading some reviews - someone even called this tire "baby pilot sport 4".. Coming from pilot sport 4 I was dissapointed, initial dry grip is ok but 2 hard turns it starts to wobble around like a boat very dangerous.. steering feels loose and not accurate. Cornering at 100km/h+ is like cornering with winter tires not very confidence inspiring. Dont drive too fast in rain it likes to understeer. Positive things : very low road noise and very confortable

    Given 93% while driving a Nissan 370Z (265/40 R19 W) on a combination of roads for 7,000 spirited miles
    I swapped from Bridgestone RE05 which came with the 370Z and for half the cost! I take 400bhp modified 370Z on track days and spirited driving trips (European tours) and I am very impressed with the performance of the Federal for the money... Bang for buck and they look amazing! Lateral load handling on track and road is great, XL tyres, great contact patch. Unsure in the wet, struggles when cold but once going no issues at all and deals with aquaplaning well when motorway pounding, very stable. Mega impressed overall and seem to be lasting well also... 7,000 miles (60% spirited miles) and a track day and loads of lift left around 5.2-4.8mm
