Quick update on my whole build, so i finally had the chance to tune my 2018 honda accord 1.5 sport / full bolt ons. The experience was great overall and so is the tune. I can definitely notice a difference on low, med, and top end. In terms of Boost pressure since many of you may ask... it hits hard with no issue what so ever the car wants to keep on going. Boost pressure has hit a zenith @26.7psi at around 3500 to 4000rpm other than that through the whole rpm range it maintains itself above 21 pounds. Take off from a dig has extremely improved i need to upgrade to better tires perhaps Federal tires since these tires that the cars comes with are trash. I will be listing all my mods below so feel free to shoot me a msg regarding my mods or any relatable questions the community may have preferably through instagram. Stay safe everyone!

How about instead of talking down to people you remove your head from your rear and offer some respectful insight to the gentleman?
The only person here who's head is up their rear is someone that thinks Federal tires, a budget brand sold at Walmart, is an upgrade. Second there are tons of posts about tires in the proper section of the forum. There is no need to go further.

That's cool. Thank you for your insight and we will be sure to let the gentleman know a good forward approach pattern. Have a great day!

Pretty sure he can read all this for himself without you having to tell him. He probably thanks you for the help and coming to his aid though. Cheers!

Plus dont you drive a hybrid ? I think your in the wrong thread bro lol
Federal tires are a BUDGET brand tire period. The reason people use them at the track is exactly because of that, they are CHEAP and racing is expensive. If your testing or just having a day of fun without being competitive, why spend extra money for nothing when you will get a couple days use out of them. You see people at the track using them so monkey see monkey do? You want a real upgrade step up to a big boy tire like Michellen or a Conti.
So wait you think this isn't a Honda forum, and my hybrid doesn't have tires? So you think because I drive a hybrid now I know absolutely nothing of turbo vehicles?Everything makes sense now. You are probably also running all season tires now and will change to a performance tire and then post something like" see these new tires grip like crazy totally proves the old tires were trash". Good luck with your "upgrades".

No one, absolutely no one, who wants to win at autocross or road racing uses Federal tires. They are one of the many ultra cheap Chinese off brand tires sold by retail and online discounters and there are plenty of reasons (none of them good) why they're so cheap.

So yes, they are garbage.

And given what's happening in the world right now, I'm not in the mood to spend money on anything made in China no matter its quality or low price. I bet I'm not alone.

That isn't what you said and you completely miss the point. You said you were going to upgrade from the oe with a Federal which is always a false statement, they aren't an upgrade to any oe tire. You further tried defending your statement and their quality by saying oh their a good tire people use them at the track. You have also never done research on tires a good set won't cost you $1k. Go on TireRack or discount and do some research.
You should have stated the truth that you go through tires because you are constantly trying to race everyone on a public road (which right there says everything) , and want something inexpensive from the first place. Not trying to defend yourself and quality of the tires. Respect is shown when earned.
Edit: And if you had done that I could have easily recommended Falken, Hankook, or Cooper as alternatives that probably cost about the same as way better options.

Go for a walk.

Oh, and if you want to stop buying stuff from China... well good luck with that one.

Wait, are you running Federals (or some other chinacrap tires) after spending all that money to make your car faster? LOL
I am on stock tires.
Don't you worry about how I spend my money.
Yet, you are concerned about what he buys. Once again, take a deep breath and go for a walk.
