    apparently they are alright! suprising when you see how near they are to being slicks but from what ive heard they are decent in the wet

      from what I have been told they are ok once warmed up in the wet but dont move standing water as efficiently as regular tyres so need to be treated with care in such conditions.

        thanks guys for the feedback, was looking at the Proxes RA1 & R1R for everyday driving and the R888, was not sure if I could use the R888 on the wet as it's a semi slick and Toyo mentions it can be used in the wet.

            i run r888 every day to work on my car,not once have i had a brown pants time.
            they are fine on the wet/damp roads,but in standing water i would just slow down to the speed limits.
            Bo races them on a wet track and he does not slow down,so they must be good.
            best tyre out.

              The Kumho v70's have been getting a very good rap by many now on many track day sites and a few I have spoken to have come from r888's and prefer the kumho's all round for track days......Think that will be where I venture next once I go through this set of r888's....worth a try anyways, cheaper and easier to obtain also.

                I've heard decent when it's properly wet on the road, just lethal when it's greasy.

                    the problem with R888 tyres is getting hold of them.
