They don't look like they'd have much grip to me!! But not a bad price either!

Hmmm. Probably not too good in the wet, but in the dry I bet they grip like the car is on rails. Just have be careful of leaves on the line!

It also appears that the MGF/TF nation's favourite, the Toyo Proxes T1-R, are actually cheaper...

The R888s are a track day tyre. In the dry you'll go like a Scalextric car. In the wet you'll be dead.
If I were you, I'd pay the extra and get the simply superb Toyo Proxes T1-R. I think it's the best tyre for the F/TF.
