Thread ressurection time, but I have found the below tyres for a very good price compared to the Federals and Nankangs, has anyone tried them?

For the price I might just be a guineapig and provide some feedback.

They are cheap! Equivalent rsr are about 50 quid more, that's a good saving if they are any good

That's why I'm thinking it might be worth being a guineapig...

Federal 595 RSR are a tenner more at camskill in 225/40/18, shame all the deals went, a couple of years ago you could get 18" RSR's for £60 :(

I went for a set of AD08Rs in the end as got a deal on a set from a chap breaking his car that have only done one track day.

Will provide feedback once I've taken them on track :P

Just a bit of an update on this if people are in the same boat. The AD08Rs were a great tyre and stood up to punishment really really well.

I have no got myself an as-new set of NS2Rs which will be going on for the Blyton Park sprint. I shall update people when I have tried them out :D
