I haven't been to a Time Attack in a while but plan on coming back this year, finally with some proper tires. Using the CASC Ontario Time Attack classification website, I see that now "free" tires include Toyo R888, R888R, and RA-1. The website also now says that any tread wear rating of 140 or above is 0 PIP, presumable with the only exceptions being the R88R and the RA-1. Could someone please confirm?

On a slightly different note, I know this has been beat to death... but I'm going to ask any way to confirm the latest and greatest consensus. How does the R888 compare to the RE-71R and the Dunlop Sport Maxx Race? Are the Nitto NT01's worth taking the PIP point hit above all else? That will bump me up a class and I'm not sure if the difference is worth it. I'm leaning towards the NT01's because I know they take the abuse of heavy cars like mine well (relative to others).

Thanks!
