With its unique and functional tread design, Proxes R888 is a key to success of winning competitions. They are not recommended for driving in wet conditions when shaved or worn where standing water is present and there is the risk of hydroplaning; drivers should drive cautiously at reduced speeds if they encounter these conditions.
