Hmm... comments say 205... poll has more votes for 225 LOL

The Hankook RS3 225 wasn't pinched too badly on the 7.5... but everything points to the 225 Rival actually being bigger...

Ask your GF if size matters, then go where your heart desires.

Leaning toward 205s. Of course, if you get 225s, you only need 2. 225F/205R might work, or 205 square might work, but you won't need 225 rears, ever. You might even just get a pair of each for the front with Toyos on the rear...

It was mentioned to me that on some forum that isn't this one nor sccaforums, (I don't recall it right now) but a guy did run bfgs up front, and toyos in the back, and that was his fastest comparison. He supposedly tried various combos, toyos all around, bfgs all around, etc. I forget which size front though.

I have run dual compound/brands before. I had the 225 RS3's with the 195 Toyo's out back for more than 50% of last season!

Although that works great locally... issues if I keep going to National events as far as contingency.

I think I want to start with a "square setup." To do that, it will have to be the 205's... IF I can clear the 205's up front no problem, then in a month or two I think I will look into a pair of 225's.

Since I intend to "turn up the wick" soon with a few more HP from the 4-2-1 exhaust, I MIGHT need the extra mechanical grip in the front. We'll just have to see.. I don't have HUGE hopes for a ton more power, but the GOAL is 125 at the wheels. The exhaust should free up 5-10 depending on the tune, and from there it will just be sorting out my knock sensor issues... Fingers crossed Laughing
