Toyo Tires announces the Proxes Sport A/S UHP tire designed for spirited drivers of sport and passenger cars.
This premium, ultra-high performance all-season tire delivers excellent braking and handling in both wet and dry conditions. It comes with a competitive mileage warranty of 50,000 miles for V-/W-rated sizes and 40,000 miles for Y-/(Y)-rated sizes.
“Our Proxes line of ultra-high performance tires is known by dealers and owners alike for performance, style and long tread life,” said Kevin Arima, senior manager, consumer products & technical services at Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “The new Proxes Sport A/S continues that tradition with innovations that will satisfy dealers and delight customers.”
The Proxes Sport A/S powerline of 89 sizes provides almost 90% market coverage. Dealers can simplify their shelf space with one exceptional product available in 16” to 22” rim diameters. There are 61 sizes currently available and an additional 28 sizes are coming soon. The Proxes 4 Plus, Proxes 4, and Proxes T1R are discontinued with debut of the Proxes Sport A/S.
Improved wet and dry performance is attributed to a newly developed specialized silica tread compound. Its dynamic taper and improved rib design creates more even contact pressure during braking and added stability while cornering. Multi-wave sipes minimize irregular wear and improve wet and dry performance, while alignment wear indicators promote even wear. A rim protector helps protect valuable wheels.
