    if its a daily driver there are better tires imo. the 595s i had on my aristo didnt last very long as they were a pretty soft compound.

    If thats your budget, they aren't bad. If your looking for cheap summers, theres lots of brands out there. Delinte D7 Thunders. Achilles ATR Sports 2, Zenna Argus. Duraturn Mozzo.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    I love 595’s sooo good for budget summers. Drove to cali and back last year on them. Over 10,000km road trip and still 7/32nd left and then the rest of the summer on them. This was in a 300hp fiesta st too - lots of fun in Cali and Mexico

    I've heard lots of good things about Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 for a cheap summer tire too; tons of guys on the clublexus ISF forum recommend these. Not sure how they compare in price to the federals.

    These are really good tires at a competitive price. 275/35/18 is like under $900 a set for my car.

    Definitely get summers. It sounds like these particular ones offer a decent value. I like the Hankook summers I have but man, they are wearing out quickly.

    The Firehawk Indys are great tires, good grip and cheap.
