The Proxes R888R DOT competition tire is an evolution of the race-winning Proxes R888, delivering even faster lap times and better dry handling. The credit goes to a new tread design and an improved contact patch that puts more rubber on the track. Racers will also appreciate the predictable handling and how quickly the Proxes R888R reaches optimal operating temperature.
Caution: Recommended for competition events only.
I have run quite a few Hoosier R7's but wanted the size available in the 888R's for my new BRZ. For one thing, I had forgotten how noisy they are! I could live with that if they performed better on a dry track.
When pushed hard for 20+ minutes they eventually build up enough heat to start getting greasy and losing grip.
For many they will be adequate for track days, but I drive my cars too close to the limit. A better tire for me in the dry has been the Eagle Supercar F1 3R's.
