Is anyone with an Elise SC, non sport, using the Toyo 888 sized 195/50/16 in the front? I'm thinking of going to Toyo over the stock Yokohama

@Harix Thanks for your response! How is the fitment of the Toyo tire in the smaller wheel?

I'm running 195/50ZR16 R888s on my TRMotorsport F1 rims (16x6.5) and they are great! No rubbing anywhere and sticky beyond belief. Love them.

Fits perfectly, looks like it's made for it.
