Emphasizing innovation, Proxes 1 utilizes Toyo Tires’ new and advanced TruForm™ technology. The result is better uniformity and improved handling performance thanks to a high-rigidity belt package that reduces tread deformation. The Silent Wall™ in the tread decreases noise while computer simulation applied in development optimizes Proxes 1 for today’s varying road surfaces.
Six of 10 sizes feature a multi-compound tread engineered for high speed handling, cornering and braking while four sizes designed for rear wheel applications (width of 285 and greater) have a compound and design focused on vehicle balance and improved cornering power. It is the first multi-compound product Toyo Tires has brought to the United States.
Additional features of this new maximum performance tire include interlocking tread blocks that improve directional stability in straight-away driving and slanted grooves that close during cornering for increased stability. A multi-function taper is also applied to the inside of specific tread blocks to obtain uniform contact pressure during cornering and to provide a wider channel along the circumferential groove to resist hydroplaning.
The new Proxes 1 is available in sizes to fit 18- and 19-inch wheels on the finest performance cars including select models of Audi®, BMW® M cars, Corvette®, Ferrari®, Jaguar®, Mercedes Benz®, and Porsche®.
