Toyo Proxes 4 Plus Tire Reviews
(Based on 6 Reviews)
Proxes 4 Plus B were OEM tires on my car (Toyota iM). These Proxes 4 Plus are slightly different from my OEM tires, these have higher speed rating and higher weight load resulting in a tiny bit heavier overall ride feel. Proxes 4 Plus are some of the best tires on the market in handling/comfort category. They handle great, they are quiet, they corner amazingly well. Comfort is comparable to many touring tires. Tread wear seems to be decent, but it is too early to tell. Where Proxes 4 Plus lack: wet handling. They are OK in the rain, but if you do any kind of aggressive cornering, your car will slide. Wet braking is also lacking. Same is true for winter driving, you will get by in light snow, just be careful. MPG decreased by about 2 in mixed city/highway driving. I would also suggest their less known and less popular twin: Nitto Motivo. I had Motivo tires for some time, they were excellent. Their wet handling was much better, they were slightly less sporty, but also more comfortable and more fuel efficient than Proxes.
These were put on the front of a low mileage 2001 Mustang SVT Cobra. They handle well and feel pretty good compared to the eight year old tires they replace. These are "Ultra High Performance All Season" and they are replacing similar Cooper tires. They feel much better but it's not a fair comparison because of how old the rubber was on the Coopers. The Toyo's didn't balance well (used a lot of weight too.) The guy who installed them said I will probably need to re-balance them after 500 miles and I think he's right. He says they have a memory from being stored (made in Feb and March and bought and installed in November). For now I'm pretty happy. I moved the front Coopers to the back and I'm going to burn them up so I can have Toyos all around. I'll post after I get the back pair on. Cheers.
Best tire value period. Have had many other brands on the wrx and these have been the best so far. Price is very low for the quality.
PERFECT, STICKS TO THE ROAD. AND LOOKS AWESOME..
Love these tires, great still at high speeds and around corners. Cant say the same about when it snowed last year but thats fine I dont like driving in the snow anyway
