Top Toyo Proxes TR1 Review

Given 80% while driving a Renault Clio 1.8 16v (195/45 R15) on mostly country roads for 8,000 spirited miles
This tyre is difficult to judge on comfort as I ran lowering springs, but I wouldn't say they were in comfortable. When I first purchased some alloy wheels, a had 4 different tyres, tread depths you name it. They were poor. Footing a set of proxes t1r's literally transformed the car. Dry grip was unbelievable, car cornered like a house fly. I later fitted some to a Mégane and that was the same, gave me so much confidence to through a car into a bend and it would hold. Really stable at high speeds as well from the stiffer side walls.

Given 81% while driving a Mazda MX5 (195/50 R15) on mostly country roads for 3,000 spirited miles
Running the tires on a Mk2 miata with the 1.6 and cheap coilovers i can tell that the dry grip is decent, although nothing too special compared to the earlier T1R and Nankang NS-2R. The Nankangs definetly grip better in the Dry. Wet grip is another story though, it is VERY good in my experience. i can push very hard and the tires are pretty predictable, when it gets slippy. Road feedback is okay, though not great, given that the sidewall is not as stiff as some UHP tires and the compound itself is pretty soft. i mostly drive b-roads and push the card very hard on those. They are very progressive at the limit, you can judge when they are loosing grip really well and slides of throttle are very controllable. Drifts on power in the dry is difficult to judge for my car and 110 HP so im gonna leave it at that. For the price i can recommend them a lot if you are looking for a daily driver that gets also driven in the wet and even works well while driving relatively hard.

Given 48% while driving a Nissan 2002 patrol (195/50 R15) on a combination of roads for 2,000 spirited miles
Dry grip is good, wet grip is decent, haven't been able to test them too much in the rain. They grip good, slightly above the Yokohama S.Drives I had prior, and doesn't seem to overheat as quickly as the Yokos. However, they look like they are not as wide as the Yokos, they have a more rounded tread pattern, and they are HORRIBLE at feedback and on driver inputs. My car felt like a gokart when it had the Yokos, even after they were 3 years old with only half of its tread left due to excessive camber, and now it feels like a small bus. The steering is vague, really, really vague, inputs take a fair while until the car reacts. These tyres are good in the sense of dry grip, but they just aren't confidence inspiring, seeing as you can't really tell how the car is going to react, and that it takes a lot of time until the car reacts to your input. They are cheap, and for easy going to medium-fast driving I would recommend them, but for fast driving, I seriously can't. I regret buying these tyres

Trying to pick the very best all season tyre? Watch this!
Given 100% while driving a Toyota Corolla (195/50 R15 V) on mostly town for 7,000 spirited miles
toyota corolla g6 160hp blacktop. Greece country. more warm weather and less rain. This tire is unbelievable on the dry road, in braking and in corners, after a lot of pressure in turns it continues to be absolute, it needs heating about 10 to 15 kilometers after that it has excellent grip and is close to semislick .. the same tire has been tested in seat ibiza cupra 300hp and audi s3 420hp with perfect response results. on the wet road it is fair for its price, anyway on the wet you have to be more careful. I would definitely put it on again next time.

Given 63% while driving a VW Polo 6R 1.6 TDI Bluemotion (195/55 R15 W) on mostly town for 5,000 spirited miles
My size is very odd in Malaysia so theres little to no performance tyres. I have been on almost 3 sets of ATR Sport. THose things are terrible at wet but great at dry, before 50% used at least. TR1 is great at wet, previously with the same wet road I would just glide lol. TR1 managed to grip and slow me down, impressive. They are both a few bucks different only. I drive a Proton, nothing in the list haha

Given 71% while driving a Honda City (195/55 R15) on mostly motorways for 7,000 spirited miles
Replaced my original tyres(goodyear gt3) had day and night performance difference. Tyres are quite noisy though. Sharp corners are grippy and response time increase. Rainy weather still not so confident as hitting deep puddles can cause abit of sway.
