Not that the car wouldn't be faster, but it felt better balanced with the G3s than the R888Rs, so I think the G3Rs would really feel like too much tire.

Seems like the right decision to go with then... plus I was worried about the daily and rain driving capabilities of the g3r's.

I wouldn't even consider them for daily driving. You're going to want a second set of wheels if you are going to try them.

IMHO the G3s are crap for daily driving... much less the GT3Rs!

I kind used the ss 1le as my daily for the 1st year and 18k miles here in FL. They were mostly fine except trying to go at highway speeds during heavy rain, definately some butt puckering moments.

I hear R888Rs are just about as good as some DRs as to grip. Would rain be a big problem if you are careful? Also do they wear better than DRs? Thinking of using them in the back and skipping DRs for now. I have them but the Race Stars are a real pain to take on and off.

R888Rs will be worse in rain than the stock G3s.

As far as street mileage, they're a 100TW track tire, so they're not going to last long. They should be much better for going around corners than DRs, but I have no frame of reference for comparing wear.
