Tire Pros

Traction (wet or dry) noise level is very quiet cornering is super Looks are very aggressive

Tire Cons

Should be offered in more sizes

These tires are excellent! I have a supercharged 2.4l show car that used to have Toyo Proxies r888 until I wore them out. These tires do not have the dry grip that the R888 had but they last more than 1k miles too! In addition they will flat blow away the R888 in the rain. I had to drive home from a Car Show one day when it was raining and it was quite a experience with the r888... Any time you hit a puddle you were hydroplaining! These tires are excellent for hooking up and cornering (not quite r888 in the dry). I have no faults at all for these tires other than it would be nice to see more sizes. In the rain they are like driving on rails. I love these tires! I also have them on my 2001 Volvo V70t5 which is a daily driver and just ordered another set for my fiances v70t5.

Tire Pros

Cheap. Offered in strange sizes

Tire Cons

Loud. Very little traction in 400whp car. Lousy cornering performance. Not confidence inspiring

These were purchased as an alternative to the falken 615's, as when I bought these, the 615's were not offered in a 235 size. Car is a 03 civic si hatch with k24k20 turbo. These things spin ALL THE TIME. I understand the power issue quite well, but even in 4th gear they still bark and cut loose. Cornering performance is quite poor. Sidewalls feel like they are made out of wood, very hard, but then let go way too early IMO for such a stiff sidewall. I will be looking into a higher price point tire, as these have greatly let me down. Spinning the tires is cool, but not when you are trying to race. If you are looking to buy these just as a basic set of street tires, I'm sure they will do fine, as the tread is holding up well. I just can't use them for my application. Hoosier slicks, here I come.
