As I understand it the RA1 is Toyo's race tire. And right next to it performance wise is the street version T1R. Is that correct?

If so I want to compare the Toyo T1R against Falken's RT-615.

Which of these two is closer to being a combo street/track tire with stiffer sidewalls, crisper turn-in, sticky compound, etc?

I posted asking about the TOYO T1R as well, but got no response.:dunno: I guess no here runs Toyo's. It would be interesting to get Gary's take on this tire, if he has any experience with it, eventhough Tire Rack doesn't carry Toyo.

You can see from my signature I'm running the 615s.

Not many run Toyo anything. My impression is those that do are generally not impressed.

I could be wrong. Just my impression.

i have T1R's on my e36. Had them for a year and a half now. Down 2 track events and 1 autocross and they still are in great condition. Excellent tire IMO. Great wet traction also
Are they your street tire also? If yes how do you feel about that?

I've only found a couple of reviews about the Toyo T1R's and they have all been positive...similar to Rated_r's comments

Would agree about the T1R but other Toyos.

Anyone running T1Rs on the street?
