Federal 595-RS-RR's are $312 shipped from Federal (so $78 each before any eBay coupons). Great option for us folks who just track for fun, cheap and sticky.

No love for those on hallow spokes?

I'm running 205/55/14 NT01s as an auto-x tire, they work well FWIW

I second these, for a budget racer they are fantastic and wear forever. The price you pay for the grip you get is astounding.

Looks like they come in 205/50/15 and 225/45/15

And I think this thread is headed towards sticky status...

If anyone actually has seen these in 225, let me know. Their website only shows a 205 option, If they make these in 225's I will 100% be buying a set of them.

EDIT: Ebay seller 'federaltireofficial' emailed me and said the 15/45/225 is a newly released 595 RS-RR tire by federal. I have probably 26 20 minute sessions and a few thousand street miles on my set of 205 federals and still have good tread left (some uneven wear due to alignment, but good tread remaining). Not trying to thread jack, just these are a budget option in 205 and apparently 225.

I will be so pumped if those actually come out in 225's. Suddenly tire choice won't be even a remotely logical reason to go 8's over 9's or to stick with 205's on the 9's for the budget minded!

I'm very interested in how they stack up to the RS4's at 225. I have yet to see a head to head for these two tires. I wasn't impressed by wear on the only other tire I'd consider running in 225, the Rival 1.5. I just put on RS4s, otherwise I'd glady try the RS-RR's. My friend and youtuber Zygrene swears by the RS-RR, but I wasn't impressed after riding with him. They seemed to get too hot after only a few hot laps, and peak grip was good but not amazing.

I don't think AR-1 is very popular in the States, but as I've herd it is a very sticky tire (better than the R888)

Update. I just received a set of the Federal 595RS-RR tires. They do indeed have a 15/45/225 size. Price was $360 shipped from Ebay. I have never had these overheat on me, they are loud on the street but at this price a great tracking tire IMO.
