    your thoughts and experiences.
    lets get a price list happening with certain models and common sizes so we can get a bit of tyre shop competition happening too.

    Also, right now im running falken aziena st115's up front, 195/50/15 and it seems to me the common race slick size is 205/50/15. from what i understand that these are 10mm wider? hopefully it wont scrub too much.

    What is the application?
    I got Toyo proxy 888 for a trackday, I only got a few laps in but it ate the tyres, think they 100% thread wear. They were good.
    A list would be good & where the can be got, some tyres are regroovable, where can you get this done should also be on the list.

    That's what I was using for drift. 185/65R14 On a RA65 Grippy as. I'm running RE001 now and the semi's were so much better. They did wear a bit quicker though.

    I can get the R888 for arounf $310 each in 205/50R15. better wear rate than the RA1's supposedly which are more suited to lighter cars where a quick warm up time is necessary, think 400kg clubman for hillclimbs

    the application would be for pure track and hill climbs/sprints.
    i've been looking at the R888's, advan 048a's and D01J's.

    im not worried about tread ware too much as they'll only be used for track days.
    i know a shit load of people (including me) stretch 195/50's over an 8" rim, but is this ok for semi's? I'd say a safe bet would be to up it to a 205, but that might just be me getting older.
