While you won’t be scaling Pike’s Peak or tearing through Havana, it’s nice to know that you could do this. Whether you’re cruising through the desert or just cruising to work, you'll love your Toyo Tires.
Good autocross tire-but loud on the road
I was pretty much stuck with the R888s because they were the only brand I could find that made 20" R-compound tires. But, I am still satisfied with their performance.
If I was to do it over again, I'd go with 18" wheels & tires for more options and lower cost.
