Questions and Answers for the Toyo R888 R

2016-08-25 - Good morning, I"m just curious what the Treadwear rating is on these tires?

The treadwear rating of the Toyo Proxes R888R varies by size, full information can be found on the Toyo website.

2017-02-23 - I'm wondering regarding left and right tire tread.. On left tire tread going up,but right tire tread going down.. Is that normal? I usually fiited my GTR R888,but i want to try this new R888R.. I just wonder regarding the tire tread.. Regards AFIQ AFIAT

The Toyo R888R is an asymmetric tyre, so there will be some variance between the looks on the left and right sides of the vehicle. This is normal, and won't affect the tyres performance.

2017-07-20 - How long mileage wise would a set of R888R's last on average?

The mileage of the R888R will be massively dependant on usage as track days will shorten the life considerably. In purely road miles, a guess would be around 3-4000.

Top Toyo R888 R Review

Given 97% while driving a Alfa Romeo (190/50 R15) on track for 125 spirited miles
Fitted these on my 2nd Alfa 155 for a trackday, the dry grip they provide is by any means outstanding, the cornering speeds the car reached were almost on the edge of being described as ridiculous! They seem to be gripping quite well too on wet roads I must say. Up to about 80-90 km/h they are quite but at higher speeds they make some considerable noise.

They did wear very little after a total of 30 laps, "pedal to the metal" action, probably because I had insisted on aligning the wheels as perfectly as possible.

Will be using them again on the next trackday, they can cope with at least as many laps again for sure.

Given 89% while driving a Renault clio 197 (215/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 300 average miles
Got them fitted on a Clio 197 and was a bit nervous at the beginning in the wet but they out handled my road tyres and I was very surprised how much grip it had on wet roads, but amazing in the dry and I haven’t had the chance to warm them up properly. Bit noisy and can feel the road a lot more but would honestly buy another set after these!

Given 54% while driving a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 9 (235/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 1,000 spirited miles
Extremely noisy, very soft tyre. Good for track days. Great on smooth dry tarmac. Not as bad as you would think in the wet but dangerous in standing water/aquaplaning conditions. Forget them if you have powerful road car. I got about 1000 miles out of fronts and a bit more from backs. Track days only. Look great but unless you want to go around a race track 2 seconds quicker per lap don't bother.

What's better in the snow, a 4x4 or winter tyres? Watch the video to find out!
Given 96% while driving a (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 7,000 average miles
I write this review for anyone who has wheelspin problems but also wants to feel confortable in car without noises.
You can buy these tires blindfolded. Absolute grip minimal to none noise! Perfect road feel and steering feedback.
I went from a lot of semi-slicks and finally I found the mother load
