One of the popular types of tires in the automobile industry today is the all-terrain tires, especially for light trucks and SUVs. However, these categories of vehicles are not the only ones in need of strong and effective tires. Drivers of sedans, coupe, and sports cars would also love to enjoy a nice and comfortable ride with their vehicle.
This realization is probably the motivation behind the design and manufacture of the Toyo Proxes T1 Sport tire. It was unveiled by the popular manufacturer, Toyo Tires, as an ultra-high performance summer tire that works perfectly well with sports cars and other types of small cars. The tread design is meant to provide an ideal grip and traction for sports cars no matter the road surfaces they are driven on. Bearing the speed and traction requirements of sedans and coupes in mind, the Toyo Proxes T1 Sport comes with excellent cornering stability, dry traction, and grip.

Toyo Proxes T1 Sport review Features
It comes with different advanced and efficient features that ensure that it fulfills all the demands of drivers. These features include a unique tread compound and an advanced tread. Both of these features ensure that drivers enjoy a great road handling performance, durable tires, and the ideal grip on both wet and dry roads.
It also has great braking and cornering performance as its wide profile and even wider outer tread area allow for more contact with the road. Therefore, there is enough pressure to grip the surface of the road, and improve braking distance. This pressure then works with the combination of a stiff sidewall and high hardness bead filler to provide one of the best steering and cornering ability ever achieved from a tire in terms of speed and steering response.
Cornering and steering aren’t much of a problem as braking properly on a wet road, especially for a small vehicle. This tire under review works perfectly in this regard by ensuring proper and almost perfect braking in wet conditions. This is made possible through its rigid rib design and wider circumferential groove size, both of which combine to reduce the risk of hydroplaning in the tire.
There are also optimized tread blocks that allow for a comfortable ride, reduced road-noise, and more even tread wear.
