Writing about the Federal Evoluzion ST 1
Driving on mostly town
for 5000 spirited
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.
