Given 59% while driving a Mazda 3 Series (205/50 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 12 average miles
I've used these Toyo Proxes Sport for 12,000 miles.
Overall, it was a pretty average tyre. Its considered as a "sport" tyre, so the sidewalls are firmer, however, this also contributes to a less comfy ride. Could jump on uneven surfaces instead of absorbing them. Very noisy as well.
On dry roads, traction is less than on wet roads, interestingly, but still okay. Tyres can wander on higher speeds, they don't "stick like glue" like the previous Goodyear EGP.
Wear wise, front still had 3mm left, rear still had 5mm left after 12,000 miles.
Seemed more prone to nail punctures as it aged.
Now have Falken ZE310 tyres fitted, far superior in every aspect, compared to Toyos when new.
Could suit some cars, but wouldn't recommend on a Mazda 3.

You can always tell fake reviews like the one below by the "BMW M240i" driver, they completely go against general feedback and come across as extremely negative. Well I'm glad they made it so easy for others to identify.

Here's my review. I like the Proxes Sport as a cheaper tyre that isn't the best in all categories, but performs well enough to earn its Sport name. I do both longer drives and quick blasts too, and after almost 2000 miles I feel they are a good tyre for both... if you can put up with the less supple nature of them. They aren't comfort tyres and that's why I marked them lower in that category. Any tyre that is better feedback will sacrifice comfort. Road noise however is excellent for the money, I'd say they are quieter than the Proxes T1s I had previously. Grip is fine in dry and wet, with its wet performance an improvement on the old Proxes.

I'd definitely buy them again assuming there weren't any better options out there for the money. 7.5/10.

These are the best tyres in the world. Watch now!
Given 33% while driving a BMW M240i (245/35 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 100 spirited miles
I drive a BMW M240i with Michelin Pilot Super Sport. Since I installed a limited slip differential (for improved grip and handling) I needed a set of less expensive tyres to play around a little (make drifts), so I bought a set of these just for the rear.

What I expected was medium quality tyres with less grip, especcially on wet, where most cheaper tyres show their difference with the premium types. But the difference was way bigger than expected!

The car feels unbelievable sloppy in the back. Even when I drive just 120km/h on the highway it is very sensible to tracks in the road and I have to steer all the time to make the car go straight. When I accellerate really hard to 200km/h the back feels like all my bushings are made of gum instead of hard rubber. It scares me to drive it fast.

I am really suprised how bad these tyres are. They have some okay grip, also in wet, but the stability is really bad. I would not have believed new Toyo tyres can make the car feel this much worse.

With my old Michelins back on all the problems were gone. By the way, I also tried a set of supercheap Chinese tyres and the feeling was somewhat alike these Toyo's. So if you want your car to handle in a way it gives you confidence, don't go for these Toyo's. I even doubt I would fit them on my wifes car who drives very slow all the time. Because it really pulls down the quality of the ride. Imagine steering all the time on the highway, instead of going perfectly straight with 1 finger at the wheel.

And for the record, I choose the exact same size as the Michelins.

Given 51% while driving a Volkswagen Mk7 Golf R (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 1,000 average miles
These tyres are awful. I removed them after approx 1000 and have replaced them with some delightful goodyear eagle f1s.
The toyos proxes sport were very noisy especially at low speed maneuvering speeds. They have very hard side walls meaning they are very uncomfortable. They also are very narrow compared to the goodyears of the same size offering no alloy protection.
Never again and a waste if money.
