Yokohama AD08R

Is the Yokohama ADVAN NEOVA AD08R considered a street, non-premium R, or premium R tire for PIP declaration?

They are 200 treadwear, so they are a street tire I would guess

Re: Yokohama AD08R

The AD08R is a ridiculously predictable Tire: you know exactly what you're going to get lap after lap, but it isn't peak grip for the category.

Look at the RA1, R88R or A052 Medium Soft from www.JRPonline.com as more competitive options.

They're 180TW, but still street tire for OTA.

Re: Yokohama AD08R

The Yokohama Canada website shows them as 180.

Tire Rack has two treadwear ratings (180 and 200) listed for a few sizes of tire, with the 180 shown as closeout.

I guess Yoko did something (change the mold) to change them to 200.

Not sure what you mean? Still 140 TW and up for street.

Sorry, meant the former part of Will's comment Steve: AD08R's not being 180tw anymore and moving to 200tw.

Re: Yokohama AD08R

So it sounds like they will be a 0 PIP tire. Don't want to show up to the first event an have issues with the classification.
