Default Hoosier R6

Does anyone know if there is a Hoosier tire combination that will work with the GTR AWD? How are the Toyo tires, as good as Hoosiers? They have got to be better then the OEM's. Thanks!

Currently Hoosier does not have the 20s" for the GT-Rs. Largest size they have are the 19s". Toyo R888 are designed to fit stock GT-R in 285 and 315s which are much better than stock.

I was a little concerned about the following for cold weather concerns for the Toyo R888. Is there a good all weather option available other than the stock run flat all seasons? Occasional track time and mainly normal driving conditions.

Not just R888, all r-compound tires need to store in a temperature above 0 degree Celsius (32 degree F). In place like NY, it's probably better to use winter tire such as Bridgestone Blazzak, and switch to summer tires when warm.

I'm in the Chicago area and put Blizzak run-flats on my OEM wheels for the winter months. Put the OEM summer-only Bridgestone run-flats on BBS LM-DBK rims, which look great; the combo also handled very well during a track day in both wet and dry track conditions. Couldn't be happier.
