Questions and Answers for the Toyo Proxes TR1

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

The Toyo Proxes TR1 is an asymmetric tyre.

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.

2021-11-16 - These appear to be a popular mid-range UHP tyre 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 tyre is aimed at other markets.

Top 3 Toyo Proxes TR1 Reviews

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

Before putting on this tyre I had Fuldas fitted on my car, and they were pretty old and worn out, probably had around 4,5mm of tread on my surprise, they handled better on dry pavement, then these new Toyo proxes TR1. I drove on Toyo's for about 5000km, and sold them...I was not happy with the performace on dry roads in summer time.

I have had these tires on my Civic. They look great, handle great but are so prone to cupping I threw them away after 15000km!
And half those miles were noisy to the point it was no longer a smooth drive. NOTE my daily car is perfectly aligned, has good shocks and I have a proper driving style with over 30000km annually.

Never again for a daily, I now only buy Toyo semi slicks for my track car.

I have been using these tires on a BMW E30 320i.I drive it just for pure pleasure during dry days. The tires behave exceptionally well. In fact I did not expect it.The price range they are at is very reasonable vs. the performance. Comfort is more than decent. Can't say much about the durability as I have not used them for long time. I would definitely buy Toyo again, this time for my Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce.

I bought my car on June of 2004 with a different brand of tyres (Michelen Pilot sport).
After 3 years, for first time, I put Toyo and I still wear Toyo.
It's my second set of Proxes tr1 and when the time come to change it (I have a lot of miles for this moment, during the lockdown I didn't move the car) I will buy the same or the newest tyre of Toyo

These tires really over-performed my expectations, its truly a reason why these tires are the official rain or wet tires for GT circuit racing in Norway.
These tires has both been used on street driving and now 3 track days and I can say it does very well on both occasions!
The most impressive feature of this tire when driving on the track is that you can feel the limits of grip slowly going away as you're pushing the limit, meaning there's no sudden snap between grip and no grip. This makes it easier for me to learn the limits of my car and my tires since it gives me confidence to push the limits.
Only minus I really have is that the tires after 3 track days has gotten heat damage and has become louder after track use, though I suspect this would be the case for most tires after hard use.
Its one of the cheaper sports tires that are actually good and worth the money! Perfect tire before moving towards semi-slicks for sure!

One of best tyres for sporty tyres. 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 tyres grip to the road like nothing before.
The only drawback is of course the comfort which is compromise.

Cheap tyre 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.
