It will be interesting to hear others opinions after experiencing the R888.
I tried R888's for 2 sets on my old E92 M3 with very poor results.Very short life 1st set I got about 6 hrs out of rears 2nd set I got 3 1/2 hours before they corded in a rather spectacular manner

I have had great results with Toyo RA1's so I was quite disappointed with the 888's
