Tyre choices for 600hp

As above im new to the evo scene and have just brought a evo 9 running 600hp on 255/40/18 just seeing what tyres you lot would recommend running.

Thanks in advance

I use 265/35/18 & 255/35/18 R888s or Dunlop D02Gs on my 600 bhp Evo for near year round use. 40 profile 255 tyres must look a little, erm, chunky on the side wall?

I value grip over all other factors though, and the Dunlops in particular are quite pricey. North of £800 for a set IIRC.

They also won't be the best tyres in Winter weather, for fuel economy, for low noise or value

Depends on what you want to do with it, and for what type of road conditions.

A use ado8r's al year round on mine.
Seems pretty good. They are pricey as well and don't last long.
But plenty grip

It will be for both track and road but mainly road use. Was thinking ado8's or something along those lines
