Installed the Toyo R888R tires on all four corners and took her for a spin around a lightly damp H3 Freeway. The tires are fairly quiet, but not completely quiet as some reviews may imply. There’s a vibration upon low speed deceleration. And it does have a fairly light “cupped” tire sound (or mud bogger tire sound) especially on freshly paved roads that I can hear above my exhaust noise. But I’m surprised how minimal the sound and vibration is. And it’s very reasonable given the tires performance. Hopefully these last for a decent amount of time. Hoping for 1.5 sec or lower 60ft and 9 sec 1/4mi performance on the street. Dragy GPS data coming soon

You will do as long as u making 700. I did it.

100% NT01 are better than R888R and quieter.

I put the R888R on my M4 and wanted to pull them off the next day.
Got the Nt01 and voila, no noise and same if not better traction.

I don't have any issues on my Turbo S for now, so I'll leave those stock until I need to change them.

The NT01s don't come to the correct size for the 991tts. If they did that would be th tire of choice for many, including myself.

True, most likely why most just go with the MTs?

Hi, thought I saw some 315 R and 255 F...wouldn’t those work?

I asked on the other forum and the track guys told me no. You have about .5 inch difference in diameter which is acceptable, but unfortunately it is backwards. The front Nittos are larger instead of the rear ones.

I have used the Nittos on my old 997.2 4s on 18s. The traction was ridiculous and road manners very decent when new. I wish Nittos produced more sizes.
