Toyo Tires Introduces Proxes T1 Sport

CYPRESS, CALIFORNIA – Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. announced today the Toyo Proxes T1 Sport is now available across the United States. Track tested on the Nürburgring in Germany, the Proxes T1 Sport is a premium UHP summer tire that delivers increased control and precision for true balance in both wet and dry handling.

“State-of-the-art construction and design make this tire a perfect fit for sports sedans and coupes,” said Marty Furman, COO of Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “Improvements over the Toyo Proxes T1R include better high speed stability, precise steering response, improved braking performance and high cornering power at high speed.”

Optimum cornering performance and straight line stability are a result of a new high stiffness compound which is combined with an asymmetric, non-directional tread. Wide outer tread blocks deliver responsive steering and high grip. Wide tread grooves help channel water for improved resistance to aquaplaning.

Available in 42 sizes, the Proxes T1 Sport also qualifies for the Toyo Tires 45 Day/500 Mile Trial Offer and comes with a 20,000 mile warranty. Complete details are available at an authorized Toyo Tires dealer and online at

In addition to authorized dealers, one will find the Proxes T1 Sport as original equipment on the 2011 Audi® TT, TTS and TT RS. The Proxes T1R will still be available in 15 select sizes, ranging from 15 to 22-inches in rim diameter.
