The Toyo Proxes A20 is renowned for its low rolling resistance, wet and dry braking performance, stellar handling, and the quiet, comfortable ride it provides. The tire is already a top seller – but it’s about to get a whole lot more popular. Toyo Tire Holdings of America has announced that their Proxes A20 has been officially slated as the original equipment tire for the newest generation of the Toyota Prius, the Prius V. The Prius V eclipses the fuel economy of its predecesors with an impressive EPA-estimated 50mpg on average.

The new generation also features a 24HP boost for better performance and quicker acceleration. The revitalized exterior and expanded interior rest on a set of four 215/45R17 87V Toyo Proxes A20s, which are specially engineered to minimize the amount of friction between the tread and road surface. Less friction means the car uses less fuel to overcome resistance, resulting in improved gas mileage. Exact improvements are difficult to calculate, but the lower rolling resistance generated by the Proxes A20 certainly won’t hurt the Prius’ stellar fuel economy ratings.
