Tyre Test Highlights

2014 Auto Zeitung Summer Tyre Test - 3rd of 12 tyres

  • Overall - A direct hit in wet conditions, the Toyo Proxes T1 Sport. Solid results in the dry too

2015 Australian Motor 235/35 R19 Tyre Test - 5th of 8 tyres

2011 Sport Auto Max Performance Summer Tyre Test - 5th of 7 tyres

  • Overall - The Toyo T1 Sport is a wet weather specalist, placing second in the wet tests. Unfortunately in the dry the steering provides little feedback and understeer inhibits agility. The tyre seems to overheat on quick laps.

Questions and Answers for the Toyo Proxes T1 Sport

2016-09-24 - Please advise if the Toyo Proxes T1 Sport is a run flat tyre or not?

The Toyo T1 Sport is not made in any runflat sizes.

2017-12-16 - I have bought a pair of Toyo 275/35 ZR 19 and a pair of Toyo 285/35 ZR 20 tires for my 2014 Shelby Mustang, which has a manufactures top speed of 202 mph (323kph) The horsepower at standard is 662 This has been raised to approx. 800. The question is, will these tires be safe at approx. 330-340kph, what is their maximum speed rating?

An interesting question. To obtain a speed rating, the tyre must be run at 6.2 mph steps for 10 minutes at a time, which means by the tyre has reached it's maximum speed rating, it will have been run for a significant time at high speeds. Z rated tyres are rated at 150 mph / 240 kmh +. As you are looking to take your tyres to such a high speed, it is my advise to speak to Toyo directly.

Top Toyo Proxes T1 Sport Review

Given 99% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 325i M Sport (235/35 R19) on mostly town for 20,000 average miles
I put these on to replace the Bridgestone RE050 run flats. I find that these tyres absorb the road bumps far better than the Bridgestones, although that could be because these are not runflats. I find them to grip as good or better than the Bridgestones, with good steering feedback. Maybe the BMW is better insulated to sound, but I certainly don't find them to be noisy (as some people have suggested) in fact I think that on some road surfaces that these are quieter than the run flats. I cannot complain about wear either. I have about 15,000 klm's on them and they are hardly showing much wear at all. All up I'm extremely happy with them and would buy again

Very good tyre!
My Merc had Goodyears, bud went all over the road.
Just fitted new Toyos. Now it handles sharp in the corners, and the steer wheel is "standing" now.

No idea of the wear out yet, 0 kms driven.

Given 86% (breakdown) while driving a Audi A6 (225/55 R17) on mostly motorways for 2 average miles
Driven my Audi A6 on a set of michelins for less than a couple of years but wore fairly quick & was amazed to see they were cracking on outside walls! Replaced with Toyo Proxes tyres after a friends recommendation... Full set for £310. But budget tyres were £260 alone, so not much more. He was spot on in the last month I have had them drive is miles better the grip is great impressed so far!
