CYPRESS, Calif. — Toyo Tire USA Corp. is revamping its Proxes performance line, launching the ultra-high performance all-season Sport A/S as a replacement for the Proxes 4, Proxes 4 Plus and Proxes T1R.
The Sport A/S is available in 89 SKUs, covering rim diameters of 16 to 22 inches, with widths ranging from 205 to 325 mm. The tire comes in V, W and Y speed ratings, with load ratings of 84 to 106.
According to Toyo, the product delivers "excellent" wet and dry braking, buoyed by a specialized silica compound. A dynamic taper and improved rib design create more contact pressure, the company said, while adding to its braking and cornering stability.
Toyo also noted the tread pattern for the Sport A/S varies by width, with section widths of 285 and above sporting an additional center rib.
The tire is covered by a 50,000-mile limited treadwear warranty and consumers can take advantage of Toyo's "No Regrets" 500-mile/45-day trial offer.
Some of the tires are produced in the Toyo's factory in White, Ga.
Among the vehicles that the tire fits are: Audi A5; BMW 3-, 4- and 5-Series; Dodge Challenger; Ford Mustang GT; Lexus RC350; and Tesla Model 3.
Toyo did not disclose pricing information.
The Proxes Sport A/S complements the Proxes Sport and R1R summer performance models and Proxes S/T and ST III SUV/sport truck models. The company also uses the Proxes name for its lines of DOT-approved competition tires.
