Latest Group Test Results

2016 ADAC Tyre Test - 225/45 R17 - 11th of 16 tyres

  • Positive - Good in the dry
  • Negative - A little weak in the wet compared to the best on test, relatively high wear

2015 EVO Magazine Performance Tyre Test - 10th of 10 tyres

  • Overall - As the cheapest tyre on test, you'd expect the Toyo to struggle against the premium competition, but finishing last in nine of the twelve tests left the Toyo a full 25% behind the winning Continental overall.

2015 Auto Express Tyre Test - 11th of 11 tyres

  • Overall - A disappointing test for Toyo, finishing in the bottom three in nearly every performance test.

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% 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

Given 90% while driving a Mazda 6 (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 34,000 average miles
I'm using Toyo Proxes T1 Sport in my Mazda 6. They are excellent in every sense. I've done 54,000 kms on them and they still look new (low wear level). Their noise level is also low and car run is very smooth. One of the best tyres I've used.

Given 59% while driving a Alfa Romeo brera (235/45 R18) on mostly motorways for 5,000 average miles
I am really disappointed by the sensitivity to bumps and "channels" on the road. As soon as they enter the "channel" (usually left by frequent trucks' passes) the tyres become uncontrolable... At first I thought it had something to do with the car, but this stopped happening once I mounted the winter Kleber tyres. So evidently, it has something to do with this specific tyre. Hard breaking also often leads close to strong deviation to either side... Nothing that I would expect from Toyo. I will not buy them again

Is the new Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperSport RS the fastest tyre available today? Watch this video now!
Audi TT (225/35 R19 W) on mostly motorways for 12,000 spirited miles
Replaced my Pirrelli P Zero’s on my Mk2 Audi TT Quattro Black Edition after getting annoyed with the noise of the Zero’s and quick wear at 12000 miles. Very impressed with the 71db and markedly quieter in the cabin with the Toyos Sport . Wear wise these again outdo the Zero with minimum 17000 a set before i change them out. At £120 a tyre fitted on Black Circles these are cheap. A good mid range tyre that ive happily had on my car several times and would do again happily.

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.
