As impressive the Toyo Proxes R888 tires are, Toyo has managed to take it even to the next level with their all new R888-R version. With a new tread design and improved contact patch, the Toyo Proxes R888-R are able to deliver improved handling and faster lap times on the track. The Proxes R888-R has also been developed to reach optimal operating temperature much faster than before.
It was only suitable to install the very first set we received on fellow enthusiast and great friend SCRuby’s supercharged beast. With well over 700 horsepower, this upgrade was much needed to ensure proper traction and handling capabilities. Measuring 295/30/19 front and 305/30/19 in the rear, this set will make sure all horses are touching ground.
I can’t thank Need4Speed Motorsports enough for their service and dedication to world class customer service. That said I was able to try out the New R888R’s for the first time on a very spirited drive on Mulholland Hwy. I have driven Mulholland more times then I care to admit in my Mustang and all I can say is I will never run anything other than these R888R’s. They gave me the best traction I’ve ever experienced both in going into a hairpin turn and excellerating out of the turns with the full force of the 686 Rwhp my car is putting down to the wheels. Not once did I experience any sliding or chirping of the tires during a downshift. With every turn my confidence grew in the ability of these tires to handle what I asked of them. On another note I daily drive my car and the R888R’s are very smooth and their noise level is less then the previous R888’s. I only notice a beautiful low level hum when I reach 80+ mph. I highly recommend these for anyone looking for the ultimate traction for their car.
