Toyo's Best Track Tires Now Featured at Tire Rack

Tuesday, May 29, 2012 by Zig Ziegler

Tire Rack has carried Toyo Original Equipment tires in the past, but we recently added their highly sought after Track & Competition DOT tires. Toyo tires began competing in U.S. road racing in the 1980s and became a household name among amateur and professional racers. We are pleased to add their Proxes R888, Proxes RA1 and Proxes TQ to our selection.

The Proxes R888 is Toyo's newest generation Streetable Track & Competition tire which features a semi-slick shoulder for improved grip and better steering response, while a continuous center contact increases braking power and dry traction. Advancements in casing and tread design also improve dry performance and maintains wet traction and control.

Toyo's Proxes RA1 is a soft but durable R-Compound tire that has the resiliency to withstand repeated heat cycles which makes it attractive to cost-conscious competitors who demand quick lap times. When new at 8/32" of tread depth, the tire showcases an independent tread block and groove arrangement that emphasizes wet traction. Shaving to reduced tread depths increases direct contact with the track to improve dry traction. Dry traction improves at 6/32", lateral grooves disappear at about 4/32" and only two central circumferential grooves remain when worn to 3/32" to provide the best dry traction.

Developed for drag racers looking for drive-to-the-track-and-back versatility, the Proxes TQ features a tread compound that'll maximize grip at launch. The semi-slick inboard tread area improves traction on an independent rear suspension while still offering constant grip across the tread face for straight axle suspension vehicles.

What's the best Toyo tire for a SUV

We're pretty limited as far as the Toyo tires we carry. We only handle their track oriented tires and tires that would have come original equipment when the vehicle was brand new. What is the year, make and model or tires size and I would be glad to find a suitable replacement?
