You can tell it's a legit review because a 350Z owner decided to randomly start drifting

On the topic of budget tire... I've been running Federal RS-RR this year for track duty.  At $100 bucks a tire on eBay for a 235/40/17 they're hard to beat, especially since the competition (RS4/RE71R/etc.) are basically 2x the price (and basically similar performance).  I was running Direzza Z3s before and these tires felt similar in terms of grip and feel.  I think I can probably get a total of 13-15 hours of track time out of them (with tire flipping at the mid point).

I'm curious how those Federals work out for you. I've been eyeballing them a bit, but since my rt615k+ have done so well, I'm hesitant to swap for just a few bucks savings.

The lack of any real 15" sizes is a deal killer for me. I need at least 225/45s, and would really prefer 245/40R15s.

I guess it depends on how much the difference is. I’d get a RS4 as replacement and I think they might last a little longer but on track these have been pretty good. I had them during an hour long session and they lasted a good 40-45 min before getting a bit more greasy and even then it wasn’t bad. They are noisy on the street but I don’t really care all that much.

I see they added 205/50R15 and 225/45R15 in the 200tw flavor. Both are under $125/each. Not too shabby.
