I've been running the R888 on my car since the middle of last season. I got 2-3 seconds faster on my lap times as a result, vs. the yokohamas I was running previously. The R888 are a little more noisy, but otherwise no complaints. They are very sticky. My home track has a lot of tire clag and the R888 have picked up so much rubber (especially in front) that the wheel balance is way off. It's so bad I really don't like to drive the car on the street because the front end shimmy that results at highway speeds. I remounted the factory Fuchs with yokohama rubber this winter so I can stand to drive the car on the streets when the ice age finally ends.
