Toyo R888

I have a 2013 Roush stage 3 the car dyno'd at 750rwhp and 622rwtq I am looking at the toyo r888's 285 35 20 front and 315 30 20 rear. Wondering if anyone is running them and how well they will hook with that Hp and Tq. compared to the 305 35 20 Nitto 555 drag radial i have on it now? I am looking to balance traction and handling. Thanks.

I haven't run them, but they are going to be my next tires. I hear great things about them. They hook great and corner very well.

That's exactly what I heard, hopefully we will hear from people who have run them.

Thanks

Never run them myself but have a friend that ran them on his 560hp ls3 swap rx7 and they hooked good...we are in the works of finishing up his new rx7 ls7 swap TT planned for 1400 hp and he is gonna run 335 r888s...if you don't buy them by the time we finish, I can tell you how they do...tx2k15 will be the ultimate test for them!

I'll most likely be buying R888s in the next few months so I can let you know how they are if you haven't already. Most likely before February.

And tx2k is a joke now, to mainstream, you get every dumbass in the world that thinks they can drive out there, and more and more problems every year. The car scene in general is turning into a joke

Better at straight digging. In the first post he says he wants a balance of traction and handling. NT05R handles decent since it is a similar design as the R888, but that still handles better.

Well do you want the best or do you want to come in 2nd?

The r888's still suck in the rain as the 05r's do also. You handling guys make me laugh.

Because F1 or LeMans obviously aren't the most famous sport in the world.

If you are running drag radials on a road course you definitely are going to be lower than 2nd lol

And there is a bit more to it than just roll racing where all you do is mash the gas and go through one or maybe 2 gears.

Just saying..............

It more than just mashing the gas, come try it in my car and make sure you hand over the money after you fish tail into a wall. You have to know how to handle your car also.

And I raced motocross since I was 6 so I know all about handling and the dumb *** turns. Thats where you make your time up and pull away is in the turns.
Like my dad always told me. Either you win or sit your *** on the sidelines

Can't really compare motocross and cars in corners. Not really that much alike.

And I would love to drive your car and see what it's like. But then after that you gotta try the corkscrew at Laguna Seca.

Also not all tracks have places to pull away in, and if the other car handles better than yours it won't matter anyway if you pull away a little on straights.. I promise you that.

I would love to try thr corkscrew, as long as there ready for ruts all in there grass lol. Bc I will be the first to admit my car does not turn for **** lmao.

And trevor when you loose it the last thing you want to do is hit the brakes. Especially on the street. Up shifting in a manual to bog the motor down. And keep a steady pressure in the gas and just control it with your steering wheel and gas

My original plan for this car was drag racing when I first got it. Went to the drag strip 3 days after I bought it. But then I went to an autocross and was hooked.
