Toyo Proxes T1-R

Proxes T1-R


205/45 R17 W (88)

The Toyo Proxes T1-R is a high performance car tyre designed to provide motorists with a enjoyable and safe performance.

The Proxes T1-R has been constructed with  a unique performance compound - containing increased levels of silica - and unidirectional tyre tread pattern. The v-shaped tread pattern and deep grooves are effective in dispersing surface water away from the tyre's path - providing the car with strong grip in wet conditions.

Toyo have desinged the Proxes T1-R with rigid shoulder rib-bands. These enhance the traction in cornering and also reduce irregular wear over the life of the tyre - keeping a consistent performance throughout the time the tyres are fitted to a vehicle.

Bound by circumferential groove, turning is razor sharp whilst still allowing the tyre to run quieter and last longer. The Proxes T1-R is available in a huge range of popular sizes, from 14” right up to 21"


Customer Comments

  • A good, 'grippy' tyre, the thin, tapered tyre blocks do have rather too much flexibility when first fitted to an MX-5 leading to a bit of rear-end wobble when cornering at high speed. However having run a set of these tyres previously I know that the experience improves with a little wear. The last time around the rear tyres were found to imperfectly round after approximately 8K miles however this did not adversely affect the performance but may have lead to a short life for the tyres.

  • Awesome tyre but bit dated in design to me these days.

  • Nice quite ride, Grippy in all weather conditions. As far as tyres go....these are pretty good value for money. Would get them fitted again.

  • Significant improvement to tramlining problem previously with Bridgestones

  • A really great tyre! I wasn't sure whether to get it or not after reading some mixed reviews (although most were good), but i'm glad that i did! These tyres replaced Pirelli P-Zero Nero's and are more grippy and much much quieter than those were. They appear to have slightly softer sidewalls as the car used to shake about over the most insignificant bumps, but is now more settled and comfortable. I have done around 2k miles since fitting and have not seen any significant wear after some spirited driving! Recommended, i will be buying again.
