I use to run 245/40x17 BFG R1 on 8.5" rims two years ago. phenomenal grip but I am sure not as much as hoosiers. now they have a new softer compound like hoosiers under the R1S moniker. last year moved to toyo RA1 235/255x40 staggered setup. not as much grip but more talkative, can use on a wet track, less stress on the driving components and seemingly last forever. actually unlike most r-comps when grip is at it's best first time used, these RA1's get grippier when worn down. only draw back is they don't come in many ideal sizes.
