    I've been watching a post on another site about the Toyo's so far its been good and bad of the people that have baught them. Seems guys that got the same tire have WAY different rollout on the tires. Make sure you guys are 100% of these tires before you spend the $$$

    One thing to think about when I priced them the shipping was very pricey on them

    i've run the toyos a couple times now. they seam pretty consistant but they spin a whole lot more than my hoosiers did. i have been playin around with tire presure to get them to bite. i'm down to runnin 11 psi. i talked to the rep and he said that it may just be that they need more heat in them then i'm used to. so i'll keep ya'll informed

    Slicks are the last link of the chain, if you try to go cheaper there you have wasted all the rest of the money to buy power. If you cant hook consistantly you cant win. Hossiers or Mickey Thompsons all the way!

    Testing Toyos

    Hello,

    last weekend we testet Toyos 32x14.5 and comare with GY same size at the Hockenheimring. This was one of the best strips here in Germany.
    Tests was made with an SuperGas Opel Manta with BBC weight 1050kg.
    The GoodYears was softer and more stiky but the Toyo feel better at high speed. RT,60ft was identic (Toyo was 0.02 better).
    The Toyos was wider in tread and overal and have 1" lager circumfence than the GY at 6psi.
    We want to compare to Hoosier to but we have not enough runs.
    Please let me now your expiriance with the Toyos.

    Udo
