Federal Tires - A Review from Joe "McQuicken" McGuigan


Many of you know Joe McGuigan as the gentleman who announces at all of our SpeedSF events and even as a driver coach. He's also a newly-minted USTCC driver who did very well during his first race at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca!

He took time out of his day to give us a review about the tires on the track and a little about on the street. Here's what he had to say: 

The Federal RS-RR is without a doubt, one the best “bang-for-the-buck” track tires. With grip consistency throughout a 20-min. session of hot-lapping, these tires will help beginners and experienced drivers alike by allowing experimentation throughout the session without grip loss.

They communicate well before you enter the point of traction loss and provide decent feedback. The wear has been exceptionally even throughout the various sets I have used. Even down to the wear bar, they have proven stable. The only fault in the tires would be the noise produced while street driving due to tread design and build.

Thanks for the review, Joe! We appreciate the honest feedback! 

As you all may know, Federal Tires sponsors our track events and the SpeedSF Challenge. With the tire contingency program and the tire discount program, it's easy for you to get your hands on a set of Federal Tires! 

Hope to see you at our next track day!
