Think you will be surprise ,how good R888's are in the wet (low boost) and away you go !Braveheart said:Very informative web site Bob thanks for sharing it...
I have it bookmarked.
Have been out on a track with standing water with the R888's yet but thing that will change come Sunday at Knockhill. Pity the treads almost spent though... :doh:
The tyres are rated for load as well as speed, this does not make any difference if there 15 or 16 and 17, the 15's I will be using soon are rated to take more than most as the side wall has been strengthened. Check with the makers guide to find out the rating of each tyre.Trondelond said:Sorry for the slightly OT, but I'm considering a set of 15" rotas or something for the R, for track use. As I'm hoping to get my hands on a '88 civic as well, I thought it'd be nice to be able to use them on both cars.
However, I've never tried 15" wheels for track use, I see that it's recommended, but I can't help but wonder if the tyrewalls won't just... give in? How do they feel compared to 17" for instance? And what dimensions are recommended for the 15"/16" wheels?
