Toyo proxes T1R

Noticed these tyres are getting cheaper.. 225/45/17 are around £65 a corner.

Just wondered if anyone has used them on there car/zed ?

Are they any good or cheap for a reason?

I would love to know where you can get them for this price. I have used them for a long time. The only gripe I have with them is the time they last, quite a soft compound tyre.

I personally don't really rate then, a squidgy soft tyre with not particularly great grip in dry or wet IME. They've always been cheap though, perhaps not that cheap in that size, but always very affordable. I'd prefer to use Hankook V12 EVO in this range, or Goodyear F1 Asy2 for about £90.

Had these & as said soft compound & fast wearing, but not that grippy either. I'm now on the Falkens recommended on here & they seem pretty decent, but I would still try the Goodyear as they suited the Z across a few generations of tyre with a compliant sidewall.
