Toyo Proxes R888 255/50R-16

The Toyo Proxes R888 is a Racetrack & Autocross only tire specially designed for driving enthusiasts who are into road racing. This tire shows you what it really means to push a car to its limits. Its construction and tread design is optimized for wet traction and dry performance giving you confidence and control even in the most challenging driving situations. The enhanced R-compound tread delivers a competitive handling and performance as it maximizes its grip on the road while the continuous center contact enhances braking performance and dry road traction. Enhancing dry traction even further is the limited void and increased tread area. Assisting you with wet weather traction are the V-shaped grooves in the unidirectional tread design. For better steering response is the semi-slick shoulder area while the stiff bead construction and wider tread width improves cornering force so you maintain competitive handling.

Features & Benefits

  • Internal structure consists of an advanced competition modified construction which allow you to accelerate efficiently and drive hard through corners
  • Excellent dry traction with its increased tread area and limited void
  • V-shaped grooves help with wet traction so you have confidence to drive even when it rains

Toyo Proxes R888

Got these for the back of my cobra, excellent dry traction. I don't hear any road noise. I don't drive the car in the rain so not sure on wet traction, love the tire so far. By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.

Love R888s! Yes, they’re a bit noisy and are not the best to drive around in the rain but I SoCal weather and a full exhaust setup in a V8 make those cons irrelevant lol. Also, they’re the most aesthetically pleasing tire on the market. By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.

I use these tires for track days and summer spirited driving only. They are without a doubt one of the best tires you can run at the track unless you go with a pure racing tire. Grip is phenomenal and I often achieve better than 1.2 G's in turns in my 2008 Corvette Z06. The trade off is of course tread life as I can only use them for about 6 or 7 track days before they are done. I did have 1 day at the track when it rain a little and was pleasantly supersized how well they preformed on wet pavement. They are not a rain tire by any means, but the R888's worked OK and I ran the whole session without any off track excursions. All in all until someone comes up with a better street legal tire for the track these are my go to tire.
