Toyo Tires® Introduces the Proxes® Sport A/S UHP Tire with Exceptional Wet/Dry Braking Performance
Our Proxes line of ultra-high performance tires is known by dealers and owners alike for performance, style and long tread life,” said Kevin Arima, senior manager, consumer products & technical services at Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “The new Proxes Sport A/S continues that tradition with innovations that will satisfy dealers and delight customers.

CYPRESS, CALIFORNIA -- Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. (Toyo Tires®) announces the all-new Toyo® Proxes® Sport A/S designed for spirited drivers of sport and passenger cars. This premium, ultra-high performance all-season tire delivers excellent braking and handling in both wet and dry conditions. It comes with a competitive mileage warranty of 50,000 miles for V-/W-rated sizes and 40,000 miles for Y-/(Y)-rated sizes.

Improved wet and dry performance is attributed to a newly developed specialized silica tread compound.  Its dynamic taper and improved rib design creates more even contact pressure during braking and added stability while cornering. Multi-wave sipes minimize irregular wear and improve wet and dry performance, while alignment wear indicators promote even wear. A rim protector helps protect valuable wheels.
