Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. announces the full-slick Toyo® Proxes® RS1™ is now available in the United States. The Proxes RS1 is a full-slick competition tire that provides consistent performance throughout the life of the tire.

It features an advanced casing for durability and stability at high speed, plus the steel wire reinforced sidewall provides responsive handling to maximize performance while minimizing lap times in dry weather conditions.

The Proxes RS1 is available to U.S. racers in four popular sizes: 245/640R18, 285/650R18, 285/680R18 and 335/710R18. A comprehensive contingency program is also being offered in conjunction with NASA, the National Auto Sport Association. There are 30 eligible race classes including Super Touring, Super Unlimited, Enduro, Time Trial and GTS.
