Has anyone tried them??
DOT Competition Tires Proxes R888 Toyo Tires
They would look to short to much gap showing unless you lowered the car.
I used them on my GT 500. loved them, Alot of my friends use them on the high HP supras . I did not want a full DR on the car as I like to take some corners. I recommend them.
So I did end up buying the r888 to give them a try.
They do show a lot of gap (but many of the wider tires are 30 or 35 s so won't this be a problem in general?)
I plan on lowering the car so I am not really concerned about it. Only had them on a day so I will post a few pics tonight.
I would like to see some picks.
JeKo, waiting on pics
Those tires only come in 315/30/20's
If that's what you got, they are way to small in overall diameter.
They are 1.2 inches smaller (shorter) than the stock tire.
Any gain you'd get in traction from the wider/stickier tire, you'll lose from effectively lowering your gear ratio, which makes you spin easier. They will look really small on the car too.
And I hope you have aftermarket wheels. As they are way too wide for 9.5 inch wheels.
Dying for the pics JeKo ...
I've been reading on these, and it looks like it would give the Nitto 555R's a run for their money IF it was offered in our sizes. It might even be an outright better tire than the NT555R for street use. Which is frustrating, the best tires don't come in our sizes. A tire like this would be perfect for my application, dry grip street performance and wet weather performance to handle the Florida rainy season.

I read on their website ... they will over heat ... not good for a daily ... but seems to be a great tire
They look nice. How much are they?
I ran the Toyo R888 315/30/20 on my Shelby.
Awesome grip for a non-drag tire.
