Product description & features
The Toyo Proxes CF2 is a tyre developed for fitment on medium and high powered cars.
Keen to improve upon the popular CF1, Toyo have constructed the Proxes CF2 with a cutting edge compound and lighter construction. The use of a full-silica tread compound with active polymer - which conforms to the shape of the road's surface - has helped to reduce the rolling resistance of the tyre by up to 25%.
Toyo have constructed the tread pattern to be stiffer, to ensure stability at high speeds. The use of wide grooves within the pattern also aids in reducing the risk of losing control in wet conditions - by removing surface water from the path of the tyre's path as quickly as possible.
The tyre's full-silica tread compound also delivers a longer lifespan.
What are summer tyres?
Summer tyres are specifically designed for warm weather conditions, particularly during the summer season. This type of tyre performs best when in seasons with warmer temperatures - above 7°C.
How does a summer tyre perform better in summer?
The technologies and tread patterns used in a summer tyre mean the tyres have high-quality features that are of benefit to driving in warm conditions. They typically use a softer rubber compound – designed for good grip and traction when driving on dry and wet roads.
Can you use summer tyres in winter?
Whilst summer tyres still offer adequate performances in wet and cooler conditions, it is recommended that you change. The tread design and technologies that are featured in summer tyres can harden in colder temperatures, resulting in reduced flexibility and decreased traction on snow and ice.
