Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. has released the new Toyo® Proxes RR, a DOT competition tire designed for dry tracks. Its symmetric design uses two circumferential grooves molded to a 4/32nd treaddepth with additional wear inspection holes on the void areas. This race-ready design eliminates the need for tire shaving and provides ultimate traction with superior cornering force.

The racing tread compound of the Proxes RR delivers maximum dry performance and improved lap times for the serious racers competing in NASA or SCCA® competition. It is also great for track days and Time Attack competition. With the advanced compound and rayon carcass of the Proxes RR drivers can expect predictable handling and consistent lap times throughout its life.

The reinforced sidewall of the Proxes RR delivers excellent steering response. A sidewall marking area is also a part of the design, allowing racers to easily label their tires.

“The new Toyo Proxes RR is the perfect tire for road racers that are serious about winning,” said Stan Chen, manager of events and motorsports, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “It also complements our already popular portfolio of race-proven tires including the new Proxes RS1 and legendary Proxes RA1.”

The new Proxes RR has a 40 C A treadwear rating and is available in three popular competition sizes: 205/50ZR15, 225/50ZR15 and P275/35ZR18 87LL. It is recommended for competition events only.
