  • Camber: -1.0° to -3.0° (the Proxes R888R generally  requires less negative camber than the Proxes RA1)
  • Caster: As much positive as possible
  • Rim width: a tire size that falls within the range of midpoint to maximum rim widths is recommended
  • Wet conditions: increase tire inflation pressure by 6-10 PSI to reduce the possibility of hydroplaning
  • Driving style with less slip angle is recommended (when compared with the RA1)
  • Break-in procedure for new R888R at full tread depth: scrub the tire clean of any mold release chemical.  Bring new tires  up to operating temperature gradually over the course of a few laps to minimize graining


PROXES R888R SAFETY ADVISORY

  • The tread compound is specifically designed to operate under racing conditions making it difficult to achieve optimum  adhesion levels under normal street driving.
  • Performance limitations are particularly evident in low  ambient temperatures or during the spring and fall when ambient temperatures fluctuate significantly.
  • Wet performance is limited when operating outside the optimum temperature range, and when the tire is at less than full tread depth.
  • Do not use the tire if it has cracked.
