It just occurred to me that I'm just about pushing 45,000 miles on my ss-595's and still have plenty of tread. Will probably be looking for new tires in ~10,000 miles or so.

I've been generally happy with them. No rain issues like others in here have mentioned and I'm in Miami, so I'm regularly driving in the rain for 1/2 the year.

If it matters, they're 235/40/18...

I will update... Anybody on here in San Diego's is welcome to join my cruise. (5 car max is how we roll)

Murr hit me up!

As far as the H brace, I can already tell you that the steering feels more planted, I didn't know that the car could get any more stable.
I'm gonna try my best to get my SS595's as hot and greasy as possible so I can put out my report.

Todays ride wasn't what I expected. My car ran like crap the whole time. (When I got home i found out that I ended up burning a hole in my hose from my compressor side of the turbo to my EBCS... I pushed the car more than I should have with the situation. I didn't get the feedback from the tires that I wanted because I was babying the throttle.

When driving in the corners, I felt as if the tires would grab/slide/grab/slide. I did not get to step on them in the corners because of lack of power (high AFRs when I attempted to go WOT. I'm just glad I didn't grenade my motor!)

I guess I will have to wait till next week to get another ride in. I still don't feel as confident in these as I did with my Bridgestone 050A's. Then again, my car was running like **** and I didn't get to drive it like I wanted to.

One good thing, I did find out that my sweet spot for these tires are 36 psi warm...

These cost a fraction of those Bridgestone, what do you expect?
