Mytyres are doing them at a good price..

Was you referring to reviews on federal not being good or the A048?

Have you tried to get them? When it comes to placing the order it comes up not in stock and no delivery time available. Federals are meant to do a job I'm sure stumps will comment.

Everytime I was going through to order it was saying no stock and that was in the exact same size as your looking for

Camskills often say they have stock at very good prices. Many times they falsely advertise on availability and price.

The 595RSR for the price cannot be beaten as a track tyre.

They are 90% as good as a Toyo 888 but 50% the price.

I think they worked extremly well at Bedford recently, not getting up to optimum temperature even, and in the wet.  I was probably on pushing the car at 75%, due to a number of factors. If I were to drive harder and without a pax, I'm sure they still would have coped well enough. Ask Mikey & Lynchy for some comment on how my car behaved.

They're not as focussed as a 888, or A048 but they don't make themselves out to be either.

I'll do another report after Rockingham next month. Hopefully I'll have some laps without a pax to push on a bit harder.

I was impressed how sticky they were on Stumpy's car at Bedford, so much I bought a set.

Absolutely no problems ordering from mytyres, fast delivery too.

The only downside to them is the speed rating..168mph, which is no good for blasting down the autobahn..

270km/h GPS is fast enough no ?

You received yours ok then mikey?
mikey-s

Yes, very quick delivery, well wrapped, can't fault mytyres.  According to the online tracking they came from Germany.

When did you order mate?
mikey-s

I think it was Tuesday last week, and I missed a delivery on Thursday and Friday.  Had to collect them from the local DPD depot on Sat morning.

I'll try them in the morning I've had no luck getting any tyres recently cheers for that

Not bad, looking at a cheap replacement for my R888s, I seem to remember these tyres getting a slating on a US forum, for being to soft. But at that price worth a shot.
