    Anybody here used Toyo RA-1 tires on their Ferrari (especially a 550 Maranello) for track and/or street use?

    Thanks!

    They last much longer than any other R-compound tires I have used. For example a set of Hoosiers may last only 3 days. These RA-1's are probably good for about 10 days. They are much stickier than street tires, but I do not think they are as sticky as Hoosiers. I may try the new steel belted Hoosiers next, (if these ever wear out).

    Dave: as a point of reference, I am getting 15 track days on a set of S03s.
