Toyo R888R makes global debut in Essen
Toyo Tire Europe GmbH is giving the new Proxes R888R track tyre its’ world debut at the Essen Motorshow in Germany, which opened today.
The tyre, available during 2015, succeeds the Proxes R888. According to the company, the R888 has been used to win many championships, most recently the 2014 Toyota Sprint Series in the UK.
Produced in 32 sizes initially, the new Proxes R888R is said to have a fast warm up time, increased dry grip and sustained performance over multiple laps and heat cycles.
This is achieved using a rayon ‘super-high’ turn up ply on some sizes coupled with steel side plies to give the new Proxes R888R precise steering response and feedback.
