Now that the weather is getting cooler I switched back to my Toyo R888R for better grip.

I notice each time I pull into garage a faint "burning rubber" smell. I remember earlier this year when I had them on I notoced it as well.

I've checked for rubbing and I don't see any issues other than my somewhat aggressive driving. Lol

Anyone else notice this?

Have not noticed that. Only thing that really stuck out to me is they sound like you are stirring mac n' cheese when you drive down the highway haha

I did notice this as well. Assuming it’s because they do throw rubber as your driving because of the durometer.
