DOT Competition Tire

We built this next-generation DOT competition tire* for drivers who know what it means to really push a car. We’ve optimized its casing and tread design to maximize dry performance without losing wet traction, and to keep you fully under control in extreme driving situations. If your idea of fun includes road racing, track days, and high-performance driving schools, then the Proxes R888 is your tire.
