used toyo's - davis, sacramento, roseville?


Recommended Posts

howdy everyone -


this is my first post here, i found the site/series looking for tires for a project.. the toyos you use came up in my search. this looks like a great racing series! i really like how the costs are kept down.. makes me look at the used 80's F-bodies on the corner lot in a different way. i actually own a 91 z28, but I don't think I want to race it..



my reason for posting, is that i'm setting up a 71 camaro with 16x8 wheels, and am considering running the toyo ra-1 spec tire this series uses on it. it has a 406 in the neighborhood of 450hp, and I am not interested in running drag radials for various reasons (one being - it's not a drag race car!)


so, to get to the question, i was wondering if there is anyone in davis, sacramento, roseville area who has either a pair or set of the toyos... mostly worn (90% worn is ok) but not corded yet? something I could mount up, check clearances, handling, traction etc. and be able to drive on a bit and see if they will work for me?

I have some very used 275/40-17 Toyos, but this is not what you need...


I just wanted to reply so that I could say - Nice Car!


I should have never sold my 3rd gen!

Hi Nick,


I've got some old tires that you are welcome to, they are mounted so you would need to get them dismounted and give me back the wheels. I have about five or six of these, so let me know and you can come get them. I live five miles west of Woodland.

Keith - thanks! It may not have the modern-ness of the LT1 or LS1, but I certainly enjoy it...


Al - I'd have to change so much just to get it legal! I do my own computer tuning/chip burning, and I have a 97 camaro 6-speed in it, and it has the 350... Not to mention the various modifications I've made on top of all that. If it was a 305/5spd car and not a pampered weekend driver...i'd certainly consider it! I've watched some of the CMC videos and it looks like great fun. I still check ebay and craigslist fairly often looking for a CMC project car..


Julie - that would be great. What kind of condition are they in? Do you have a local shop that I can have them dismounted at? I normally have all my tire work done at the local Big-O here in antelope/north highlands, but it doesn't make much sense to ferry them back and forth if I could get it done locally. If you're around this weekend I could pick them up tomorrow, but no rush/hurry - whatever is convenient for you.

Nick, sorry, missed your post earlier. I have a shop in Davis I use, Bernard's.

Let me count up how many old Toyos I have, I am not sure all of the old tires are Toyos!
