I've been running these tires for the last couple thousand miles and have yet to be disappointed. Great traction off the line and in the corner. I can drive the car any time I want without having to switch out the wheels/tires which is great.

What else can be said about this tire? It is one of the longest running competition tires in the industry for a reason. Consistent, fast, versatile, and fun to drive on. What else can you ask from for a tire designed for this market space? The RA1 is on the top of my list for a track worthy tire you can actually drive to the track. I have been using it for years on track with NASA and it's just a fantastic tire.

I can use the tires for normal daily driving, but also be ready for the track. I love having a tire with decent tread life, amazing traction, and with the ability to drive in the rain safely. I have a Pontiac GTO that has 400+ HP to the ground and these tires haven't let me down. They have amazing traction off the line.

I have these on the rear of my 72 Dart with a 500hp big block and a 6 speed. The traction and bite from these tires is unbelievable. The wear is also unbelievable, which I did not expect with their treadwear rating. I wish they had 200aa stamped on the sides so I could use them in some other events that have a 200 treadwear rule.

I used to run RA1's on a modified Evo VIII MR. It was by far my favorite tire. I left them full tread depth. Did a proper heat cycle and then 24 hour rest period. And then they were absoluetly phenomenal! I loved the fact too that they required a minimum of -1 to -3 degrees of camber. The fact that they're designed for that is awesome. No wearing out the inside of the tire way prematurely compared to the outside of the tire, they wore very evenly on a car with -2 deg of neg. camber on the front and -1.5 on the back. I liked too that Toyo publishes their recomended running temps. As tires technically dont have correct pressures, they have correct temperature ranges and we just use air pressure to get the tires into those ranges. I use a pyrometer, so i'm more concerned with temps than pressures, and adjust pressures accordingly. I like the wear indicators too. Similar to slicks. But i tell you what, i've never used a tire outside of the RA1 that just kept getting better the more it wore out. The best, stickiest, day of the tires life was the day the cord started showing, no kidding. It didnt peak half way through its life and then start degrading till the cord showed, it actually got better and better up till that point. Full tread depth it was fine in the rain but it eventually wears down to a point where its rain capability will diminish and its dry capability improves. A great tire for street use, canyon runs, track days, etc... It doesnt compromise much to a full R compound 50 wear rated tire thats basically only good for track use. The RA1 is the bomb, hence why Toyo brought it back from the dead after they tried replacing it with the R888.. People complained and wanted it back. Toyo listened...yeah!
