Toyo Tires Introduces New Proxes 1 Tire - Web Exclusive

With advanced TruForm(tm) technology the result is better uniformity and improved handling performance.

Sep 22, 2010

Toyo Tire introduced the Toyo(r) Proxes(r) 1 today at the International Tire Exhibition & Conference in Cleveland, OH. According to Toyo reps, Proxes 1 is Toyo Tires' most technologically advanced tire, developed with a focus on high-speed performance, cornering and braking.

The tire uses Toyo's new and advanced TruForm(tm) technology. The result is better uniformity and improved handling performance thanks to a high-rigidity belt package that reduces tread deformation. The Silent Wall(tm) technology in the tread decreases noise while computer simulation applied in development optimizes Proxes 1 for varying road surfaces.

Six of ten sizes feature a multi-compound tread engineered for high speed handling, cornering and braking while four sizes designed for rear wheel applications (285-series and greater) have a compound and design focused on vehicle balance and improved cornering power. It is the first multi-compound product Toyo Tires has brought to the United States.

Additional features of this new maximum performance tire include interlocking tread blocks that improve directional stability in straight-away driving and slanted grooves that close during cornering for increased stability. A multi-function taper is also applied to the inside of specific tread blocks to obtain uniform contact pressure during cornering and to provide a wider channel along the circumferential groove to resist hydroplaning.

The new Proxes 1 will come in 18" and 19" sizes. To learn more about the new maximum performance Proxes 1 from Toyo Tires, log on to toyotires.com .
