    Hi David,

    Good to meet you the weekend. I was in the hanger when you beat the aventador. Was epic to watch!

    Maybe see you again at the next.

    Hi Sam, I didn't know Toyo did a 255/40 R888, but even if they did, I believe you get most neutral handling out of the car using a square set up, hence 285/35 all round. It's the same reason but from different causes. On the MPSS, the 255s don't grip well enough hence understeer, on the R888s, the 315s grip too well, hence ultimately, understeer, albeit at much higher grip levels than the MPSS.
    So to cut a long story short, get 285 R888s in the absence of MPSS availability!

    Hello David,
    This is Sam from Thailand. How are you?

    I read a lot about you are a long time user of Toyo R888, a tire guru.

    If possible, can you please help to give me some opinion to help me with tire choice.

    My Dunlops are going bald, and the grip is deteriorating. Michelin's Super Sport has not yet arrived here. I want to import R888 but I am confused about the set up.

    last time you wrote the tire review over the MPSS you mentioned that you would prefer a square 285 set up because the car understeers with 255 front.

    And for R888 you also prefer a 285 square set up but for a different reason which I don't quite understand. It seemed to me that 255/40 R888 at the front is perfect for you, but you want to increase that to 285/35 for fun?

    I appreciate any wise words you might have.
    Thank you in advance and have a great weekend.

    Tim, they are noisy, but I didn't get a vibration in any of my sets of R888s. Check that they are balanced properly and that a weight didn't fall off etc.

    Hi David

    As you are widely regarded as the tyre guru on here can you tell me with r888 did you get a lot of noise when off throttle and did you get a weird vibration about 38 mph?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi David , good to meet you yesterday . Sorry I could'nt give you that ride when you asked . My son would have had a fit as he had just come to have a blast in the beast . If you are ever in Devon then you are very welcome to give it a try with me . If you are the petrol head I think you are then I think you would like the other beasties we have in the workshop .
    Regards Bob.

    Hi David,

    Did you have a resonated y-pipe or none-resonated?
