Hi frenz and sifus,

Just curious in selecting which semi slick tyre that suit for track day. Not to say for racing but just to enjoy better grip and handling during driving. Welcome everyone to propose any choice with opinion, price and more importantly where can buy. Thanks!!!

Just to add on the spec. I'm running on 235/45/R17

Are you referring to road use and track day play type of semi slicks. If yes, then have Federal 595RSR, GY RS Sports, Falken RT-615, Toyo R-1R, Yoko Adavn AD-08, Dunlop Z1 Star Spec, BS RE-11
If more serious type semi slick then Federal FZ-201, Toyo R888, Yoko A048.
Price you have to check. I saw some of the tyres in Hup Shun, Sunway.....

Thanks bro. My intention is to have dedicated set of 17" tyre and wheel only for track day play play. My daily road use is 18" and think not suitable for track day. Furthermore, 18" the price is terrible. Will consider your recommended choices..

Base on price Federal should be the cheapest if not mistaken. Try the bigger shops like Hup Shun in Sunway.
If not try calling the importers, but I am not sure which of them carry this model

1) Key Vector Sdn. Bhd. Tel: 603-7987 1889 suppose to be distributors of Federal Motorsports tyres.

2) A-One Tyres Sdn. Bjd Tel: 603-5637 7887 suppose to be distributor of Federal Range of tyres, mention competition tyres too.

quick question guys if you don't mind... how about a set of tires that perform well in the dry but doesnt behave like ice skates should it rains a bit during a track day...? don't think i can afford to bring both dry AND wet tires to a track day... Heard the Federal 595 RSR is quite the all-rounder... :)
