I just got a set installed. They grip as well as any other 200tw tire so they are worth it as a budget tire option. They have a better operating temp range then my old Hankook RS3's did. They get up to operating temperature quicker in lower temps whereas the RS3 were pretty useless in less than 70f and couldn't get heat into them at all... The RS-RR definitely improved acceleration grip over the RS3.Any reviews of the Federal 595 RS-RR's yet?
Where did you find this info? Offsets aren't what's going to change the weight much...oh what the forgestars arent that heavy. for some reason i thought they were like 21-23lbs lol. 135i offsets they weight 18-20lbs. nice!
Rain hasn't seemed to present any more of a problem than I'd expect for a tire like this. It's not going to be like an all season... they are new right now so they are fine, but as tread depth decreases I'd expect to have to keep it a but slower in the rain.Thanks for the review! I am mostly looking for the improved straight line acceleration so these seem like they may be a very good option. Any wet weather feedback? Obviously wouldn't expect to drive these hard in the rain, but would potentially be installing these on my daily driver, and would need to get from point A to B safely.
Everyone I've talked to who ran r888's wasn't impressed with them and recommended toyo RR'sToyo R888's are amazing, I just watched the ETS integra go 200mph in the 1/2 with a 225/55/15 R888.
You'd be surprised what a proper alignment and a corner balance will do for traction lolEveryone I've talked to who ran r888's wasn't impressed with them and recommended toyo RR's
If you want a more daily driver friendly tire of stick with 100-200tw rated tires but skip the federal rs-rr and get toyo r1r's, direzza star specs, or the most highly rated the group the re-71r...
I looked on their website lol. Someone from fs told you the rears were going to be 21lbs? Damn I'd be interested to know which is true thenWhere did you find this info? Offsets aren't what's going to change the weight much...
I was told 21lbs for 17x9.5. That's pretty heavy. Unfortunately, there just aren't that many good wheel options with high enough offsets for the rear of our cars.
Looks like offset does make a pretty big difference in weight! 17x9.5 doesn't look like it would be too bad in an ET62.
