The SS595 is Federal's international ultra-high performance tire, developed for flagship sports cars requiring flat-out per-formance as well as excellent riding comfort. While Federal's latest fundamental tire technology, TTIC, gives wou smoother, faster and safer driving, the newly developed M.P.O.(Magnify Performance Optimization) technology also offers the driver a more consistent performance not just when new but through-out the whole life of the tire.

The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

25.03.2016fromSteven Black These are great set of tires.
05.03.2016fromSlick I drove maybe 25 miles and I had the sidewall blow out. Unfourtunatly these are the only tires I can find in this size. Pretty disappointed that it only made it about 25 miles before blowing out
07.09.2015fromSTEVE SOUTHERN HAVE JUST BOUGHT ANOTHER SET OF TYRES OFF YOU LAST THANKS
24.12.2014frommatt b Awesome grip and responsiveness when on a slightly underwidth wheel. Noise is very noticable but a reasonable tradeoff
