im happy with the federals ..good in wet & dry ..
they havent skiped out at all.yet..
theres a few round abouts off the M1 i love to test my car on .. :wink:
also grippy on take off ..(my old dunlops used to spin easily of the mark)
but the federals are still new ,,ill see how they go with a bit of wear ..
for $140 per tyre there great ..
i have sava intensa 225/50/16 up front ,there not bad either ..
hears a pic ,,you can sort off see the rear 245 tyres .a slight bulge to em.
