Toyo high-performance Proxes racing tires coming to a passenger car near you

toyo-proxes-tq-wholesale1Among race track enthusiasts, the Proxes line of Toyo high-performance tires are well-known and widely-used…but until now, you probably haven’t seen them outside the strip. Toyo has just rolled out Proxes TQ – its first set of D.O.T. approved drag racing radials. The tire manufacturer now joins BFGoodrich and Mickey Thompson in producing these special radials for RWD vehicles.

The Proxes TQ are the cumulative product of over 40 years of high-performance tire research and engineering. Check out the impressive specifications on these radials:

  • A price point of $150 – $250 per tire depending on size
  • 20,000 mile longevity before needing replacement
  • “Light load” designation so they can be raced on low pressure
  • Radial tread compound, enhanced tread, and stronger manufacturing techniques for grip, performance, and stability.
  • Reduced tire and road noise
  • Semi-slick inner area for added traction

Ideally, Toyo believes that the new Proxes are the total all-in-one tire for those who want to drive to the track, on the track, and home from the track all on the same set of tires.

The Proxes TQ is available in P255/50R16, P275/45R16, P275/40R17, P315/35R17, P345/40R17 and P315/35R18 sizes. Check with your local wholesale tire dealer for pricing and availability.
