    I'll get a full list of what we physically have up on Monday

    Slovenia isn't too bad to post to, from memory about 35 for a pair of tyres, but I may be out in either direction on that

    These are AMAZING.

    Seriously, blown away by them. We all use them at DW, including the 2 drift cars, and its obvious to see what they can do.

    They actually work in the wet unlike R888 too...

    I have got some more feedback on these following some heavy duty testing...

    In the dry, they're a little off the pace for the first 5 or so laps, maybe 1.5 seconds on a R888, maybe closer than that...

    After those 5 laps, right when the R888s start to go off, the Federals keep on going, and for my money are ideal for people doing track days that want a tyre that will perform, last and give them a reliable and predictable drive time and time again

    Driftworks also give them hell on a regular basis, and they get their money's worth from tyres

    I haven't forgotten you Kev, just been doing battle with the used wheel collection.

    I'll have a look tomorrow and get back to you

    How good are they? Honestly? Compared to an R888.

    255 is as wide as they do in 17" I believe They go wider in 18"

    Compared with an R888 they're not quite as fast. They dont however get overheated and go off like an R888, so if you've got lots of power and you're spending a while on track, they'll perform for longer at the same level.
