Toyo RA1 Tires, to shave, or not to shave... - Pelican Parts Forums ra1 shaved


With a few gift cards I'm planning on buying a set of Toyo RA1 tires to use as track tires - they will go on my bbs rims. Plan on using them as dry.

Toyo Proxes RA1 is a DOT competition tire that is well-known by road racers for delivering quick lap times, consistency, and long wear. *Caution: The Toyo Proxes RA1 is recommended for competition events only. Toyo Proxes R888 DOT Competition Tire We accept Toyo Motorsports Rebates.

The Proxes RA1 is Toyo's Racetrack & Autocross Only tire developed for Proxes RA1 radials are not recommended for driving in wet conditions when shaved.

I would not worry about it in a lightweight car like a Miata. I assume you are talking RA-1's?? They must have completed the track expansion for.

Any one want to weigh in on their experience? I've never gotten an RA1 or this sort of compound before. Should I have them shaved to 5/32's.
