Toyo's Proxes TR1 is a high performance summer tyre offering outstanding grip, wet & dry handling, and value. With an innovative assymetrical tread-pattern, it grips and handles well in a variety of conditions.

  • Excellent grip
  • Built in wear indicator
  • Outstanding wet performance

The Toyo Proxes TR1 is the follow-up to the ever popular T1-R tyre. Like its predecessor, this is a high performance road tyre offering outstanding grip and handling. Toyo have significantly improved wet handling on grip on the newer tyre though. The new tread pattern is designed to clear standing water out of the way and drain much more efficiently. This gives it vastly enhanced all-weather capability.

The Toyo Proxes TR1 is designed with a firmer sidewall and tread pattern that deforms less under cornering for better grip and handling, even on heavier cars..

The 3 things you have to take into consideration with tyre reviews are. There are a lot of people who are clueless. So when the guy at Quickfit has talked them into a full set of P zeros for their Audi A4 tdi, they need to believe that anything less would have put them in a ditch, or they would feel like they paid too much. Then there are plain tyre snobs who have the money so just buy the best, anything less is for poor people. Lastly, there are a lot of people who can't drive for toffee and wouldn't know a good tyre if it ran them over.

Then there are people who have driven the same car for 10 years and tried various brands. That without changing driving style, get to know why tyres are decent and what aren’t. I had a set of Toyos once. While dry grip was good, in the wet they sucked and the rubber was too soft for longevity.
I personally won’t try them again as it’s too costly a mistake to try them again. Everyone has their own findings and opinions.
Horrible tyres, ime. Unbelievably dangerous in the wet.

I thought this too though realised these are TR1, not T1-R which is what I had the misfortune of having.

TR1’s mate. I was burning through rears so thought I’d try ‘em thinking how much worse can they be? I was snaking all over the place and the car’s driving characteristics totally changed which I couldn’t understand. Masses of understeer . Then found out that they have a weak sidewall which upset my s2k.

I’d definitely avoid them

Hmm. Sadly in 225/50/15 there's very little choice these days. Literally these, cheapo Nankangs, P Zero at £200+ a corner or semi slicks.

I'd still secretly like a TVR. I nearly bought one several years ago, but practicality meant I needed an everyday car and couldn't run two. Still, an M3 was a nice compromise in its own right

Well said. They also flex horribly under cornering. We are talking about T1R though, not these TR1.

I know this is slightly off topic, but Toyota recommend Bridgestone RE040s for my car. It's rear wheel, rear engined. They no longer make them.
I changed them for T1-Rs which are hideously horrible in the wet. I don't care how good a driver you think you are.

I came off a roundabout, not particularly fast, in the wet. We're talking maybe 20-30 mph. Other cars are overtaking me because I'm going so slow. I did this, because these tyres snake at the best of times when they're cold. And I don't just mean snake, I've found myself pointing the wrong way many times.

This time, a full 720 having hit the white paint and aquaplaned all the way down the A11. Fortunately, others behind me saw what was going on.

I'm not the only one. Loads of people have said the same.

In the dry, they're great, albeit a bit floppy because of the soft tyrewall. In the wet, they're a death trap.

I remember having a set of Yokohama's when they first "got good" on a golf GTi, pulling silly Gs on roundabouts in the dry and smoking any fool who tried it on... Bang went £250 in about 5 weeks.......

3 things you should take into consideration:
1. What you've written is absolutely ridiculous and I hope people don't take it seriously.

2. Budget tyres Vs midrange or premium tyres will have much less grip and stopping distance, stopping distance that's the difference between a near miss our write off or something much worse.

3. People paying for p zeroes aren't necessarily 'tyre snobs' but instead recognise that the only thing in contact with the road is those 4 pieces of rubber, so spend a bit of money on them.

Amen. P Zeros were the cat's flaps briefly. No longer.
Right now Goodyear UltraGrip Performance seem to be just about* the best wet / snow tyres without compromising general performance.

*they may not be best for where you live, but if you're expecting significant snow at street level plus more in the mountains they probably are.

No, luckily I’m saved from evening having it as an option. They don’t do 235/45r18 sizes.
Also going buy an average set at that size of £500 I wouldn’t want to waste it. Would rather spend the extra £50-£100 over that and get the good stuff.

Four palm sized patches of rubber keep 1,800kg on the road. It has to be good, or I don’t get to go home

It’s the only size recommended for 18” rims by Volvo. I wanted a set of winters but I’m looking at £600 or even £450 if I get some 17” rims and go 225/50r17. Then I’ve got tyre sensors to worry about too.

I've dropped to 225/50/17 for winter. It's not cheap dropping a size, but it's for the best if you're heading into the mountains for the next few months. It really depends where you live and what you're expecting winter to throw at you.
Edited by: "zomg" 30th Nov 2019
Funnily enough just spent £678 on 4 P-Zero all season tyres. One of the cheapest tyres in our size (265/40 22) and the only sub £400 wood weather tyre. I preface full on winter tyre but few available at that size.

I would never ever put cheap rubber on. That is generally a good bit of life advice. Lol.
Nothing else touching the road. Nothing else to grip and slow you down when you need them too. If you can’t afford decent tyres you shouldn’t be driving.

Fine purchase. That's a great buy. As you say, it's "one of the cheapest tyres in your size." I just spent double that on winter tyres. If you think it's going to be a really rough winter maybe buy some new, smaller wheels. But yes, good purchase.

I currently have Goodyear Ultragrips on, Michelin Ps4 for the summer in the garage for one car. The other car does 2500 miles of town driving a year and has uniroyal rainsports on all year round. Both performance cars.
I never understand why people stick £25 on each corner of a £25K car. I do a fair bit of research on forums and FB with people driving the same cars as me, and stick with the tyres I know work well, or from lots of research.
Had rainsports on a previous car, hit a flooded motorway in the dark at 70mph, ground to a halt very quickly not touching the brakes, just lifted off, a bit of a shock, but the tyres did their job well. I dread to think what would have happened with budget tyres on.
worked for me. thanks
I found these to be reasonable on my clio but they were awful in the wet on my skyline
Can anyone kindly recommend good deal on good tyre size 215/55 r16? Thanks
