Toyo Tire USA Corp. has introduced the Toyo Proxes 1, a new max performance UHP tire.

Toyo said the new tire is its “most technologically advanced” and was heralded as the company’s new flagship line.

The tire features Toyo’s new TruForm technology, which the company said provides “better uniformity and improved handling performance thanks to a high-rigidity belt package that reduces tread deformation.”

The Proxes 1 also features Toyo’s Silent Wall noise reduction technology, multi-tread compounding on certain sizes for high-speed handling, cornering and braking, while four rear-wheel application sizes have a tread compound “focused on vehicle balance and improved cornering power.”

Additional features of the tire include interlocking tread blocks for directional stability in straight-away driving and slanted grooves that close during cornering for stability. A multi-function taper is also applied to the inside of specific tread blocks to obtain uniform contact pressure during cornering and to provide a wider channel along the circumferential groove to resist hydroplaning, Toyo said.  

The new Proxes 1 is available in sizes to fit 18- and 19-inch wheels.
