Re: Toyo Tires Announcement and Sizing Poll

Actually, I do have experience with Rivals (rather than Rival S s) and no the 315s are not ideal sizes (actually a bit wide and would require the extra 2 pips for sticking out beyond the fender more than 13 mm). My personal experience is that even the plain Rival doesn't handle the heat that well and found that consistently the performance dropped off by the third lap of competition AND they heat cycled out. Then to top things off, after stating they would continue to produce Rivals, BFG stopped making them. I think the Rival S is unlikely to last a lot longer on my car and again would prove to be much more expensive than the 888R
