Re: Toyo Tires Announcement and Sizing Poll

I think the perception of RE-71 wear rates is skewed by the tires' initial wear rates; they can go through the first 50% of tread depth rather quickly, slowing down after the excess tread depth is worn off.
After running the first Ontario 1500 on AD08R's and using that set for a year + testing the next year, the second year we had eight (8) RE-71-R's in 285/35/18. First tire died after 1.5 days at Calabogie Time Attack / one Autoslalom. At the end of the year, six were dead, two were marginal. YMMV
