I am wanting to run r888r's on the back but keep the factory front tires. I am lowered, are any of you running R888R's in a 305's width? If so, what sidewall size? Do you think there would be any issues with the 305 on a lowered car?

245 in the front and 305 in the rear. R888R’s.....game changer! With the stock tires, I was spinning in 3rd and 4th. Can launch now with no spinning!!

Wouldn't that result in a lot of understeer? Also, I haven't heard of anyone mixing tire sets. My instinct is it's not a good idea, but would great for "science" to hear how it actually works out.

The thing is the front tires have a lot of miles left in them, but the rear needs changing. Also looking for a tire with good grip, I’m not satisfied with the corsas at all 🧐

Toyo R888s are THE BEST tire you can buy for a Mclaren hands down, no questions asked. They are cheap, look awesome, and grip like there's no tomorrow. And you don't need to warm them up like crazy for them to be sticky. They are super sticky even cold! Save yourself a headache if you are deciding what tires to buy and just get R888s, end of story.
