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.

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

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
