The Proxes R888 advanced casing and V-shaped tread pattern provides excellent wet and dry traction and control.

  • Spiral wound cap ply (construction may vary by size).
  • Semi-slick shoulder area improves steering response.
  • Steel wire reinforced sidewalls (construction may vary by size).
  • Continuous center contact increases braking performance and feel when compared to the Proxes RA1.

    I am on my ninth or tenth set of these tires. The combination of grip, longevity and price make these a "no-brainer" for me. They are the only brand of track tires I have used for the past four years, and I always get them from Treaddepot.

    R888's are my favorite tire for DE club racing. Pricing is very competitive with many other DOT legal track tires. Grip is excellent. Compared them side -by-side with Hoosier race slicks this spring and they were within a second per lap as fast as the Hoosiers. If I am not on Hoosiers , my Lotus is on r888's. I bought my 6th set of r888's this spring.

    I drive mostly on track and a little on the streets. I usually run high performance street tires and the r888 were my first r compound. These tires perform excellent on the track and are good to drive there and back as well. Would highly recommend to all track enthusiasts. Tread Depot was also very good to deal with as well!

    I put these on my 03 Cobra just looking for a better drag radial. They simply "hook" and if you get caught in some wet weather they Don't break loose as easy as other drag radial style tires. If you have A high HP car give these a try, you won't be dissapointed.

    Run them on the front of my Z to reduce the under steer. They have not let me down in the wet or dry with many canyon runs, and city miles. They are great if you drive your car as a sports car or have sports car tires.

    Right Shoes for the Track

    We have been using Toyo R888 on our 1996 Turbo Miata for a few years. The tires have performed extremely well. They have lived through many driving schools including driving on the Circuit of the Americas track in Austin Texas. I gave the tires 4 1/2 stars. The only thing we have noticed is that after extended running the tires start to loose a bit of traction (greasy). This will usually take about 25 minutes. Highly recommend this tire for track work.

    I have had these tyres on my vette for nearly 3 years. The car is a daily driver, as well as a weekend track car. These tyres offer an unbelievable level of grip. It can be difficult to keep them up to operating temp in city traffic in winter. Reasonable wear rate for semi-slick.

    I ran the these tires for 6 track days this summer. The first 4 days the temp was 60 to 70 degrees and the grip was a little better than last yrs Yoko.048's.The last two track days were 100 degree temps and I think they were slightly more greesy than last yrs 048's at those high temps. I will keep buying these tires until I decide to go to slicks. I ran these tires hard this year running in the top 20% of track times and they did not let me down. I'm also thinking about trying to get two more track days out of this summers tires, although I think the tires have been through about all the heat cycles they can muster. Oh well I'm doing "DE tracking" and it isn't a race, right?

    Car is actually a Lotus Elise (2000 lbs), but there wasn't that car on the list. I track the car around So Cal and I find they perform very well through about 12-15 heat cycles as long as the temps are not too hot outside. When it get over 90F ambient they wear very quickly - maybe lasting two track days as apposed to 4 track days on the Yokohama A048 which I used to run. During cooler seasons I get three to four track days and heat cylcing is really not a significant issue. They don't have much grip once the tread is gone. I've heard they do better in hot conditions with heat cylcing and shaving, which I have not done. They don't squirm much without shaving. They peak in performance on their second session IMO. Performance I would say is slightly better than the Yoko A048 all around but they wear faster. The tire gets slick around 220F where the Yokos are really at their prime. I would say use the R888 during the cooler seasons and A048's in the summer if temps are very hot unless you can afford to change tires more often.
