I should be running it in February - will have RA1's with me for some back to back impressions.
Hoosiers, of course, are much faster, but they have nowhere near the wear characterics of the Toyo - plus Hoosiers heat cycle out in about a weekend (unfortunately).
The Toyos still maintain a reasonable level of wet grip - and as such won't require a dedicated rain tire in the way that the hoosiers/kumhos/hankook would. How much of a change in wet performance between the RA1 and R888 is still TBD.
