Federal 595 Evo Tire Review & Rating
Delivering summer high-performance at a lower cost is what the Federal 595 Evo tire is built to provide. With its technologically advanced design and aggressive looking tread pattern that features a scorching flame on the sidewall, this model is well-suited for all types of sports cars, coupes and high-powered sedans.
A summer tread compound and unique advanced 3-D tread design not only give this tire added traction and handling on dry pavement, but combined with the larger solid shoulder blocks, it delivers impressive cornering grip and stability. This is an area that has been an overwhelming positive in other driver reviews on this model.
Four large circumferential grooves and 3-D groove profile which enhances surface footprint, increase wet traction and reduces the risk of hydroplaning. This unique 3-D design has been developed with competition in mind.
Federal uses a 2 in 1 tread pitch alignment that helps in reducing road noise when pushing the tires at higher speeds. It works well for the most part. While there is still some noise it is not excessive.
The Federal 595 Evo is available in 15-20 inch sizes with W and Y-speed ratings. ZR sizes are also available. A limited tread warranty is included with all tires.
- Dry traction and handling
- Very responsive steering
- Grips the corners like a more expensive tire
- Surprisingly good ride quality
- One of the lowest priced UHP tires sold today
- Needs a slight boost in wet traction and braking
- Not the smoothest on harsh road surfaces
It’s not every day that we come across tires like the 595 Evo which deliver impressive performance at such a good value. Dry traction and handling are above average among value-priced tires and even among many of the bigger name brands for that matter.
If you’re a corner-carver… you’re going to enjoy this tire. It grips like glue. Steering response is excellent and you get a good feeling for the road at higher speeds. Treadlife has shown to be average, but with a 240 UTQG rating you should expect 25-35K miles from the tread depending on driving habits.
Areas where we feel improvements could be made would be a bit more traction on wet streets. It’s ok, but you want to use a little extra caution. While noise is not an issue with this tire, the ride over rough pavement or in potholes is not the smoothest.
Overall, despite a couple of smaller flaws, the Federal 595 Evo is one of the better low cost UHP summer tires that we’ve reviewed. We’ve heard the same praises from other drivers of this tire as well. Highly recommended.
