Ultra-High Performance Summer Tire State-of-the-art design and construction give the Proxes T1 Sport the perfect mix of high-speed stability and cornering power, precise steering response, and quick braking on wet or dry pavement. It is perfect for pushing through hairpin after hairpin on tight mountain roads or on the open highway headed for the beach.
Responding to the demand for ultimate handling in both wet + dry conditions, Proxes T1 Sport is supremely stable, even at fast highway speeds. Developed for European conditions and vehicles, the tire complements the handling of the most prestigious sports saloons and coupes.
Outside - Cornering Performance
Increased contact area through use of wide ribs with shallow and narrow groove to maintain good tread contact with the road. Improved handling and high grip.
Inside - Aquaplaning + Braking
Two wide grooves ensure good water drainage. Better braking achieved via a rib based pattern configuration, which increases the tread’s rigidity in the back and forward directions.
Tread Design - Wide Outer Blocks
Increased contact area through the use of wide blocks with shallow and narrow grooves to maintains good tread contact with the road. Improved handling with responsive steering feel and high grip.
Tread Design - Wide Center Rib*
High-speed stability + handling response are improved by adoption of a wide center rib. *285 section width and larger
Tread Design - Inner Rib + Notch
The inside ribs have a solid shape, which enhances rigidity, improves braking performance and reduces irregular wear.
Tread Design - Wide Straight Grooves
Wide straight grooves provide a wide water channel for better aquaplaning resistance.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

27.09.2018 from Isaac Hunter The tyres are like cheese! They have not grip and not worth the purchase even if they say Toyo on them
23.07.2014 from Rob Very good tyres. Better grip, comfort and noise than the run flat bridgestones!
15.01.2013 from Robin Bought to replace Pirelli PZ-Nero's that no longer made in this size. After lots of research went for these as great price. Are so much better in wet. Feel confident going through standing water now. Has much better hold and braking. Given weight and power of the mustang sure will work on any car. Will buy again.
