Toyo launches Proxes 4 Plus UHP tire
Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. says its new Toyo Proxes 4 Plus is its best ultra-high performance, all-season tire ever.
Available now at U.S. Toyo Tires dealers, the Proxes 4 Plus offers a quieter ride over the life of the tire. It delivers ultra-high performance and all-season versatility plus better snow braking and significantly longer tread life than its leading competitor, notes Toyo.
Independent testing on a 2010 BMW 328i showed the Proxes 4 Plus to be safer in the snow, stopping six car lengths shorter than its leading competitor when new and over seven car lengths shorter when worn.
In addition to the performance attributes expected from an ultra-high performance, all-season tire, the Proxes 4 Plus lasts up to 47% longer than the competitor. That equals 14,000 more miles of tread life and more savings on tires. The Proxes 4 Plus also remains quieter throughout its lifetime thanks to an advanced tread pattern design.
“The Proxes 4 Plus represents an infusion of Toyo Tires’ latest technology and materials to provide gains in both performance and overall tire life”, said Fardad Niknam, senior director of product planning and technical services, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “We know both are important to today’s drivers and it is a balance we were able to achieve with this tire.”
The Proxes 4 Plus comes with a treadwear warranty of up to 50,000 miles and qualifies for the Toyo Tires No Regrets 45-day, 500-mile trial offer. The lineup features 58 original equipment and plus-fitment sizes with more than 94% of those manufactured in Toyo Tires’ state-of-the-art factory in Georgia.
