The design of the Proxes R888 delivers grip and consistency for quick lap times, making it an option for use while road racing, at track days, and at high-performance driving schools.

The Proxes also has a rounded shoulder, which maintains contact area during hard turns. A unidirectional Angled-Groove Tread features a 6/32-inch tread depth to help eject water and to avoid hydroplaning in wet weather conditions.
