    Anyone using the Toyo Proxes R888 tires. My Kumho's are about dead and I am looking at tire options. Pilots were dangerous with higher HP, Drag Radial sucked around turns, but held the pavement better, Kumho's hold the pavement Ok and are nice in turns, but are ugly on stock rims.

    Thanks

    Never heard of anybody using them. The tire I hear most people using are the PS2's which are the ones I just bought.

    How does dry traction compare between the PS2's and drag radials?

    That's the million dollar question. As I track my car this year on probably the last set of Kumho V700s I am going to be able to buy; I wonder my next years tire options. PS2s seem like MAYBE the tire to go to.

    I realize I will be giving up some traction going from Kumho V700s (that some consider an R rated tire) to PS2s.........the question is HOW MUCH. :dunno:
