I've been using R888R's for a good few years driving to and from the track for sprints and I would not fit them through choice for road only use. When others have said they are noisy, think all four wheel bearings gone and you will be close. They also like to follow the contours of the road so it can become a bit of a work-out on a poor road surface when accelerating in the lower gears, especially if you have a fairly aggressive front geo.

In your position I would be looking at AD08R's or Pilot Cup 2's.

Never run out of track, grip and ideas at the same time

I find R888Rs fine just certain road surfaces they are a bit hummy on I use 3.15 degree front geo . ... they tramline no worse than Bridgestone REO70s which I don't find a problem ... i wouldn't use any other tyre for road now
I use Extreme R5s for dry weather at sprints .

I have 265 888s on my X with >-3 degs front camber and a bit of toe out and there's not even a hint of tramlining. Tramlining, imo, is mostly about the geo setup, not the tyres themselves.

Just buy them they will be fine. You will require the grip if running in the 500 range.

I find its different road surfaces , not geo set up .

I think it's more a combination of both those, but the key point is that it's not exclusively down to the choice of tyre.
