Federal Formoza FD2 Reviews

Given 26% (breakdown) while driving a Jaguar XJ6 (255-40-19-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 2,000 average miles
Tyres looked really good but they will not grip when going around any corner, the traction control keeps coming on, when I put the front tyres on the rear the traction control problem disappeared! I do not know how they wear as I have only done a couple of thousand miles but they are useless on the rears.

Driving on a combination of roads for 1,000 average miles
Comparing with Continenetal SP3, FD2 feels very soft and comfort. Very low noise and steering is lighter. In curves not slippy but feel soft and bendable. I would not recommend to sporty driving but to town and highways feels comfoftable.

Given 59% (breakdown) while driving a Subaru Outback 3.0L (215-55-17-W)
Driving on mostly country roads for 31 easy going miles
Not a sports tyre in any way, but having very acceptable handling and grip including wet.

BUT …………..

whilst the ride quality is good, the road noise is awful and shows a very marked difference between different road surfaces. Great with a newly surfaced road with fine tarmac, the drive is almost silent BUT here in Northlands that isn’t 90% of the roads! In my Subaru Outback 3.0L the noise is terrible...... I wont be buying these tyres again just because of the noise!

Given 83% (breakdown) while driving a Mercedes Benz E320 (225-45-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 2,500 average miles
Far better than they should be for the price, not a sports tyre in any way, but having very acceptable handling and grip including wet.
They excel in ride quality and noise, very quiet on the road, find a newly surfaced road with fine tarmac and the drive is silent.

Nice to have non directional tyres again, will be able to rotate much easier.

Will buy again, they really are cheap at half the price.

Given 94% (breakdown) while driving a Mitsubishi lancer (215-45-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 8,000 average miles
I replaced my Yokohama Advan, that the car came with for this tyre. I am very pleased so far, not only are they quieter. The overall handling of the car does not seem to be different, than when the Yokohama tyres were on the car. Also I have been keeping an eye on tyre wear, and they seam to wearing better than the previous tyres. I have not driven in the snow yet, so cannot comment on that. But wet weather grip is good.

Driving on mostly town for 1,000 average miles
The tire is made in Taiwan with fair price, treadwear 420, Y rating with mud+snow, famous for silence anc comfort. If you are looking for a set of tire which not expensive but with long service life and comfort/silence, FD2 is one of your best choice. However, if you are looking for something sporty, it's not for your dish.

Early days yet but these tyres are performing well so far. Dry grip is good with a decent amount of feedback and plenty of warning at the limit. Grip on wet roads is far better than I thought it would be considering this is a summer tyre. Comfort on all road surfaces is definitely a step up from the very worn Pirellis they replaced. How they will wear over time remains to be seen, but overall these are not bad at all for a budget tyre and I would definitely buy again at the price.
