Federal Evoluzion ST 1 Reviews - Page 2

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

An amazing all round tire.....fitted to a modified WRX Wagon..... •Dry handling and braking is superb •Wet handling and braking predictable. •Low noise. •Inspires spirited driving. •With the right suspension set up cornering speeds are insane. • Highly recommend these tyres. •Will definitely buy again.

Nice sporty tyre at a much lower price than premium brands. Excellent dry performance and nice cornering with the XL (extra load) Feds. Wet performance and wear seem OK for now but with low mileage. My previous tyres were the excellent Falken ZE914, and now the Feds seem to have similar grip and cornering, a bit lower handling, but they are more comfortable and quite with better sporty look.

Given 74% while driving a Alfa Romeo 159 (235/40 R19 W) on mostly country roads for 100 spirited miles
Had already bought those tyres on my previus car (subaru impreza 205/55r16) And now with the alfa romeo i found exactly the same characteristics. Really good dry grip, very linear at the limit, but the sidewall is really soft (good for confort) Road feed back is not really great. In the wet never had bad surprise, even with less tread. Wear is ok but not amazing (i did around 20'000km in the impreza) If you are in a budget it is a great tyre, when considering that in my size, contis and Michelins are about twice the price.

Given 80% while driving a Nissan 370Z (275/30 R20) on a combination of roads for 200 spirited miles
Have recently changed all 4 tyres to these new Federal st1's and am relatively impressed with the performance they provide. Ive come from a mix of budget tyres including Achilles ATRs, Nexens and Sailun ZSR's. The ST1's are noticeably quieter and have far better dry grip and handling. Am yet to test in wet conditions but so far very happy for the price.

Given 89% while driving a Audi S8 (245/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 6,000 spirited miles
Had federal tyres on an audi years ago and after reading the reviews on these tyres decided to give them ago, Really please with them and i would buy them again. I have cooper tyres on another audi which cost more per tyre and the only benefit with the coopers are that they are a bit less noisy on the road.

Given 88% while driving a Fiat Abarth Grande Punto (215/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 1,000 spirited miles
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!

Given 83% while driving a Audi TT RS (255/30 R20 W) on a combination of roads for 2,000 average miles
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...
