    Toyo R888 or Yoko 048R

    I got the BBS CH's powerder coated at the weekend and I'm looking for a new set of summer/track tyres. Anyone on here tried either the R888s or the 048Rs?

    My friend had r888's on his integra type r. He said it felt like the back wheels were coming off the ground when you jump on the anchors they were so grippy.

    Only lasted a few months though.

    having driven a few minis with A048R's fitted, the difference between them and other road tyres (A539's for example) is simply insane......

    wouldnt like to comment on the bigger ones, but if its the same silly difference, i imagine they would be awesome!
