Recommended Posts

im unsure what would be the better tyre to get :/

i understand the r888 is a semi slick witch will perform better but will wear out faster

as the re11 is not a semi slick so it will last longer but wont perform as well

dont want anything worse than re11's

course the answer would depend on road or track use .

i dont intend on using brand new tyres like these on the track as i need them for street use , but i do like tyres to perform well for twisty street driving as i love a bit of quick cornering just to tempting haha

i can get the re11 for $380 each

and the r888 for $395 each

225/40/18

would like your opinion on what you think would be better

cheers all :)

R888's in standing water on the road may result in you losing control. They just dont clear the water enough like a 'normal' road tyre!

This. They are not designed to be used as a normal road tyre - they will be noisy, not grip very well when cold and aquaplane much more easily on standing water.

If its between those two options go for the RE11 no question.

Out of interest what other tyres have you tried to make you decide you don't want anything less sticky than the RE11?

The RE-11 is more than enough for any road car, especially a version 8. Fark. They last forever compared to Bridgestone's other performers too. 12,000km and counting since Megameet, still got a tonne of tread.

RE55s isn't even worth considering as a street tyre, it's for track use...and not by n00bs (trust me, I got schooled well in these parts. With blunt force trauma. Avoid doing the same :P).

To be fair Spec Cs car does have the power and handling to cause a lot more wear and tear to his tyres than yours does.

but i agree. Just get the RE-11.

I found them excellent on the road for a daily
