Official pre-sweep vehicle
I am considering getting a set of Toyo tarmac tires for the Idaho Rally. Both the R888 and R1R come in my size and budget. Any thoughts as to which is better on a RWD with so-so HP?
I wouldn't be too quick to dismiss the RA1s. I don't have any direct experience with the R888s, but the RA1s come with 8/32" tread depth vs. 6/32" tread depth for the R888, when unshaved. They are both have a UTGQ rating of 100 AA A, so the RA1s have an extra 2/32" tread depth when unshaved, and the RA1s are also known to wear extremely well.I've been using R888 since about 6 months after they came out, zero issues. I'm not saying they are as good as the RA1s, but they are a good all around tire for track and street. I wouldn't drive RA1s on the street as much as I have the R888.
I am confused as well. Unless I missed something and the fairground SSSs are tarmac rather than gravel, I also thought that all of the Idaho SSs were gravel.Tarmac tires for Idaho? Am I missing something? I thought it was all dirt roads again like last year.
Supps say the stages are "100% decomposed granite." So I'm not sure what to believe.So did I but in the Idaho thread in the USA forum it says the Super Special is tarmac...
Yes all of the stages are decomposed granite but the super special is tarmac. They hold autox's at the same venue just in a smaller section.Supps say the stages are "100% decomposed granite." So I'm not sure what to believe.
This discussion is good though. I'll come back to it if we ever get a tarmac rally on the West Coast...
