Toyo Proxes R1R Tire Reviews
(Based on 6 Reviews)
Love, love, LOVE; These tires. These are my first set of tires wider than 205. I very happy with how the car corners and accelerates, both in the dry and the wet.
I purchased the Toyo R1R's for my 2001 Mazda Miata that I use for autocross (STR Class), and during the first run with the new tires, I shaved off 3 seconds off my time on that very first run of the new season. A great handling tire I.M.H.O., but for the record, I do not run these tires outside of autocross racing, so as of now, I cannot comment on wet conditions, and certainly not winter conditions. The folks as Simple Tire are really nice and professional, and I know I will go back and gladly do business with confidence and with them again, not only for performance tires, but also for my other "daily drivers", as well. Thanks, Simple Tire!
Ran 2 7.5hour races at Laguna Seca Raceway. Finish 3rd in class on Saturday and 1st in class on Sunday. Still have tread left. Dry weather grip and wear were very good.
Very Soft and Sticky Compound. Sticks very well.
These are great tires for Autocross. This is our second set and we love them!!! We don't use them in the winter so I can't really rate winter traction.
I love these tires. I am really impressed with how they handle, especially in the rain. I wish I got a little more tread life out of them, but all in all a really nice tire
