Toyo Tires® announces the all-new PROXES4™ All Season High-Performance Radial for sports sedans and coupes. Designed primarily for “plus-size” applications, the low-profile PROXES4™ offers a powerful blend of style and performance, and provides aggressive grip in both wet and dry road conditions.
Toyo’s PROXES4™ features a curved center rib for superior drivability. Paired shoulder blocks stabilize and improve cornering grip, and feature the trademark “4” logo inset on the edge of the tread blocks in seven areas around the circumference of the tire. A UTQG (Uniform Tire Quality Grade) traction rating of “Grade AA” is accomplished using DSOC II™ (Dynamic Simulation Optimized Contact) computer technology, resulting in a unique tread pattern that provides the proper water drainage from the contact patch of the tire. Another benefit of Toyo’s advanced computer technology is a five-variable pitch design, which reduces tread noise caused by harmonics generated between the road surface and the tire. According to Thomas Okihisa, Senior Marketing Manager, Performance Tires, Toyo Tire (U.S.A.) Corporation, “The Proxes 4 represents Toyo’s latest advanced engineering technology, and is available in a wide range of sizes in “V” and “W” speed ratings. It is the best consideration for consumers demanding both performance and style, creating its own niche in ultra high performance tires.”
