Re: Toyo Tires Announcement and Sizing Poll

Most decent track tires/street tires come in 225-45's so finding an option is just as easy.
Max Attack, this thread was created to see what people wanted for R-888-R sizes so I could advise what was needed for 2018 inventory. The comment about a lack of R-888-R in 225-45-15 was mentioned and requests for RA-1's in that size in lieu of 888 was relayed. It is the preferred sidewall for Miata use, as I understand. Thanks to the polite and positive communication of CASC-OR racers, the RA-1 was added to the street tire rule alongside the R-888-R

So although not exactly what you asked for, I am reiterating that RA-1 and RR are available in 225-45-15 through Canadian warehouses. If you wish to participate in the contingency program, I'm sure you'll see that no "stamp" was required in 2017. Any specified Toyo tire bought through a Canadian vendor was eligible. It should have your Team Toyo Racing # on the invoice.

The change to have the R-888-R, RA-1 and R1R as street tires means we'll likely have to reword the contingency program for 2018. Give me some time to do that, please.
