The Proxes TR1 is the latest version of the sporty ultra performance tyre series designed to fascinate a variety of consumers be it for track-day events or weekend cruising pleasure.
Toyo Tyre Sales and Marketing Malaysia recently launched its latest Proxes TR 1 car tyre for motoring enthusiasts and owners of sport sedans who seek a fun-to-drive experience. The Proxes TR1 is the latest version of the sporty ultra performance tyre series designed to fascinate a variety of consumers be it for track-day events or weekend cruising pleasure.
The tyre is said to combine ‘unique’ edgy and functional designs, expressed through stylish and attractive asymmetric tread patterns to deliver ‘impressive’ wet performance and improved cornering stability. Merging the designs of the Proxes Sport and Proxes T1R, the Proxes TR1 has a tyre profile that looks aggressive while remaining functional.
Its construction combines three features; a spiral-wound cap ply that supports good wet and dry handling stability; high tensile steel belts to improve handling and directional stability; and high-hardness bead fillers that improve cornering grip and stability.
The other unique selling proposition is the use of advanced materials to create Proxes TR1, by combining Super Active Polymers and a high silica content to create a balance of better wet grip and low rolling resistance.
Another feature is the unique ‘wear process finder’ that provides a visualisation of the wear progress.
Tan Song Chye, President and Managing Director of Toyo Tyre Sales and Marketing Malaysia, said at the tyre’s launch in Sepang International Circuit: “I am confident the Proxes TR1 would thrill driving enthusiasts who appreciate advanced Japanese technology. The Proxes TR1 is ideal for the mid-sports segment and supports both Continental and Japanese vehicles, especially between the B-segment and E-segment vehicle class.”
During the launch, Toyo Centre owners and authorised dealers were given the opportunity to experience the drive and ride in a BMW 3 Series and Honda Civic fitted with Proxes TR1 tyres to evaluate the tyre’s braking, handling and grip performance.
Proxes TR1, the successor to the popular Proxes T1R, is available in 24 sizes, ranging from 15 to 19 inches.
