I would prefer to get the rear wheels to sit flush on the rear arches, like my Projex wheels unlike the standard wheels

The only specifics I have:-
20"x10.0j F
20"x10.5j R

I am considering the TSW wheels, but they dont sit flush without spacers.

I have only done trackdays with the Toyos on in the dry . Has anybody tried the Michies on the track in the wet ? Just interested because the way the weather is we might all be doing it this year !

Ran MPSS in the height of winter, with freezing temps and ice at Silverstone

I have used r888s in the wet on the road and the felt quite good, but not the same cornering forces.

Thanks , Yes they are great in the wet on the road but the track is stepping up . Drove home from a track day with very worn 888s lovely day till I crossed from Somerset to Devon , Big cloud burst and it all became very interesting . Would have been fun if I had the road to myself .

On Evos r888 are good for damp or cold track days as they go off quite quickly and then start to understeer I found A048 to be a better for dry track take a little bit longer to warm up but you can stay out a lot longer.

I would imagine on the GTR these things would be heightened with the extra corner forces and extra weight

I use R888 on road and are great with all the grip you would ever need rain there fine it's just standing water

I think they are great in the wet on an Evo as well, last week at Knockhill it was really wet and slippery for a start and I had no more problem than anyone else keeping straight. I will be running around on the road with them for the "summer" from now on.
I did have a big scare last year with them on my Clio though, I hit standing water running on to the motorway beside Perth on my way home from Knockhill in July. It was a poor day so I wasn't driving overly fast But had been on the track without issue, the road just felt like sheet ice and I just fishtailed until I got out of it.
Because of that Iv'e been using Eagle F1's all winter on the Evo.
I have bought MPSS for the Gtr and if I do track it I will buying a second set of track wheels for 888's as I would never fully trust them in extreme road conditions.

Agree standing water is a big no no but my car wasn't my daily drive so I could opt for the R888.

I'm hearing good reviews of the Toyo R1R same compound as R888 but with more of a tread pattern for water and I've been wondering if this will help out on track with them dispersing heat better so not overheating so quickly and going off I'm sure time will tell

Hey Dave,

The two sites are totally separate (gtr.co.uk is chat and community forum as you know and gtroc.org is official site of GTROC and has news, blogs, shop, Flickr feed etc).

As they are separate you need to register directly on GTROC site - please use same username as here for continuity) and then become a member to get discount on tyres - discount on one set more than pays for annual membership if not lifetime I believe!

Any issues PM me and I can sort.

Cheers,

Rog.
