“This is a competition race tire that you can win races at the track with and then drive home on with complete confidence.” – Turnology.com
Turnology.com recently tested a set of our new Toyo Tires Proxes R888R on their Mitsubishi Evolution X time-attack project car.
Known as the premier online magazine for hard driving enthusiasts, they took the tyres through the paces and to the limit at a track day at Willow Springs International Raceway.
The Evo puts out some solid power and when matched with the softer factory shocks and struts, the tyres are up for some serious work.
The Turnology team reported great grip throughout the day with a full mix of wet, cold and dry racing. Telemetry data would show lateral G-forces as high as 1.538 at Willow Springs’ tightest corner.
Turnology describes the benefit the Toyo Tires Proxes R888R has made to the driving experience.
“Higher entry and exit speeds were hit with more comfort, and lateral grip was confidence inspiring. Keeping the momentum of the heavier Evo moving in the direction we wanted required less corrections and fewer mental resources, allowing me to focus more on other tasks such as driving line, braking, and my surroundings.”
