Questions and Answers for the Toyo Proxes TR1

2019-07-19 - Hi I have just received 4 new toyo-tire proxes All I need to know is are these tires sided or not Thank you

The Toyo Proxes TR1 is an asymmetric tire.

2020-11-06 - For a 225/45/17 what is the tread depth? I have always run Uniroyal Rainsport 3/5 but am tempted to go with these if they are of similar tread depth since they are cheaper.

I don't know the exact starting tread depth of the Toyo TR1, however it will certainly be comparable to the Rainsport range.

2021-11-17 - These appear to be a popular mid-range UHP tire and yet no one has included them in any independent comparison tests. Is there a reason?

I can't speak for other tests, however when I speak with Toyo they're not usually keen to be in tests, and if they are they would likely submit the Toyo T1 Sport for testing in Europe as I believe this tire is aimed at other markets.

Given 80% while driving a Renault Clio 1.8 16v (195/45 R15) on mostly country roads for 8,000 spirited miles
This tire 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 tires, 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.

My size is very odd in Malaysia so theres little to no performance tires. 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

One of best tires for sporty tires. Makes a whole difference. Control and drives perfectly in dry and well ine wet. You have full control in any weather conditions. I usually run in tight corners and man these tires grip to the road like nothing before.
The only drawback is of course the comfort which is compromise.

Cheap tire for good dry performance - I have used them with a heavy car doing autosolos and track sessions in summer. But poor in the wet and cold and very poor when coming towards end of life. I managed 12k mi from my set of 4 with rotations.

Low cost alternative to Pirelli P Zeros or Michelin Pilot Sports. When up to temperature, they are pretty sticky on dry. Amazing water clearing on wet. Can't really say about the wear as I've only done 10,000km on the tire.

Given 46% while driving a Honda Civic FD2 (185/55 R15) on mostly country roads for 24,855 average miles
This is the worst tires I used so far, besides what provided by car manufacturer. Its loud and noisy, while cornering I can feel the tires pulling the steering inwards or pushing the car out depends on left or right turn. Maybe because of its asymmetric design and it make the car unpredictable especially when in wet road. It wears uneven even though rims, balancing, alignment and camber are in good condition. Sidewall are too soft and need to pump more air pressure to make it less wobbly. With treadwear rating 320 it only lasted a year, worst than my previous R1R with lower treadwear rating but still can get 3 years with it. My previous tires were Parada Spec 2, R1R, T1R, AD08R, and currently with RE004.

Given 81% while driving a SEAT Leon FR 2.0 tdi 170 (225/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 11,000 spirited miles
Very grippy tires in the wet and dry. No traction issues no matter how hard driven. Great resistance to aquaplaning, I felt very safe driving in all weather conditions. A very firm ride so comfort levels are not upto some peoples standards. The main downfall is the wear level. 5 months of use, 11,000 miles of rather spirited driving in a remapped 210bhp seat leon tdi and they are at their end of life. Would I purchase again? Absolutley! Another set are on their way!

Given 77% while driving a Proton Iriz 1.6 Executive (195/55 R15) on a combination of roads for 40,000 spirited miles
Dry grip is great, more than enough for what you want to do with cornering in a road car.
Wet grip and handling is good while still being able to take corners at considerable speeds without having to worry about sliding, performance noticeably degrades from about 30% of the tread depth remaining.
Wear rate is surprisingly impressive, even after 10,000 miles of use it looked as if the tires didn't wear a bit. A lot better than the B-RE003 that were on previously.
Comfort is fairly good when it's new due to the softer sidewalls, however noise does begin to amplify after it passes its presumably half-life along the way.
Changing from the Bridgestone Potenza Adrenalin RE003 to the TR1s, at first impression it felt like it didn't have as much bite as the drive would feel like you're dancing in and out of a turn. After getting used to it or having gone through the wear in period it felt great to drive on. At about 10% of tread left before the wear indicator on all 4, the main bug is the noise. Still handles like a charm, gotta slow a little around the water.
Contemplating on another set or the Bridgestone latest RE004 for the next.

Great tires to begin with. good grip, comfy and wet performance is good. but after sometime, the noise level is very irritating. the car sounds like broken wheel bearing. it can make long journey so stressful. had to turn up the radio volume. other than that. its a very good tire. I used it for about 20,000km and the tread is still a lot. but had to change to other brand because of the noise level. now running Michelin PS4.

Given 89% while driving a MG MGTF (205/50 R15) on a combination of roads for 4,000 spirited miles
Bought these to replace my worn out T1R's, which were very good on the TF. Went with the TR1's (T1R's no longer available), hoping they would be as good as the tires they were replacing (despite different tread pattern). Had these on about a year now and they are a very good match for the MGTF, great on the day to day stuff and even ok when used on a competitive HillClimb. Grip in the dry is impressive for a normal road tire, progressive at the limit, complementing the cars handling.
