Right, after weeks of flaffing about, i've got to sort 4 new tyres. Can the Yokohama AD08 be used as an everyday tyre? not too bothered about wear. Are they ok in wet conditions? Gonna be doing a few more trackdays this year so was after something decent for road and track. Any advice welcome.

In damp warm conditions you might get them to work well,I wouldn't want them on my car during the winter months though.

mine have griped fine all winter, slippy in snow, all tyres are except winter tyres, very cold damp days you loss a bit of grip but again you will with any tyre this time of year except a vary good all season tyre or a winter tyre, all summer tyres loose grip under 7deg, oh and i do drive it hard, all on a B road over a mountain too.

What is the point of spending money on a HP road/track tyre,then using it during the Winter months when it can't reach temperatures to work properly

Im really only concerned with how a tyre works on the track. I don't drive my R26.R in the wet and definitely not in the snow and even if i did i wouldn't expect anything more than crap to average road handling/holding. I am definitely keen to know though how other tyres compare to the R888's on a dry track at full chat. I have just replaced the fronts with R888's and have the same on the rear - and so far, on the odd dry day ive driven my car, I'm very impressed with the levels of grip and how manageable a slide is to control once it does break away. But as i said i would love to know if someone has previously had and rated the R888's and then moved to another tyre and feels the new tyre is an improvement - again I'm only interested in dry track use.
