Mine are the R888Rs, didn’t think the old R888s were made anymore.

They seem to be on correctly and look like Goodyear G2

It’s just the different tread design on the R888R that replaced the R888... there was a discussion here on the forum about it awhile back. Some didn’t like the change, which looks slightly odd when viewing the car from the rear.

Well you’re wrong brother, lol. Both rears have the sidewall mounted with the “outside” to the outside. I guess it’s like that to avoid a left and right tire. Aren’t the stock Goodyears on the 11s and newer the same? I thought they started using asymmetrical tread once they offered the SVTPP option.
Good catch though.
Not sure of your tire, but if they are Toyo R888Rs, Toyo changed the tread design... The Toyo R888s had tread that curved symmetrically making the left and right side tires different. The R888Rs don't have this, so the tread will bend forward on one side and aft on the other.

Sorry, it just looked a bit out of place to me. I must have missed a previous post regarding these tires.
Like I had said, 'I could be mistaken...' but, to an anal observer such as me it did look peculiar.
I really wasn't trying to be an ass, if I was, it would read something like this;
...'HEY dummy, what the f*** is wrong with you, your stinking damn tires look really retarded.'... :nerd::surprise::nerd:
So all is good, and now we can all sleep well at night !!!! :wink:
See... in the END it all came out good. ( so... happy driving with your weird tires )

:grin:

EDIT: just wanted to use the MULTI-QUOTE

I know you weren’t being an ass, I said the same thing on here when a member got these after they first came out.

WHOW... OMG... I stayed up all night worring about if I had stepped over a line for no good reason! So, it's all good?
Can we sit down together at SF like decent humans and have Pancakes together without a bunch of name calling and flapjacks flying at each other? I hate it when that happens; sticky maple syrup all over everything, butter stains left forever as a badge of shame on shirts, and the worst of all... the heaven forbid waste of good Pancakes!
You are showing up at SF, aren't you? If not "WE" all will talk about you and your weird tires the enTIRE time we are there!

:wink:



(now i can relax and take a nap, what a long night it was)

I could be wrong, but looking at your 'rear-end' shot, it looks like one or the other the rear tires may not be mounted for the correct rotation?
You may want to look at that, like I said, I could be wrong, but the Tread Patterns don't look right.

It does look a little strange.

Cool pics/vids of cool cars @JTB! That rear spoiler on the Fox looks like an airbrake. I’d think it would need more rake to make good downforce without adding a ton of drag.
