Toyo Tires Launch the new Proxes R1R

Toyo Tires Launch New UHP Tyre – The Proxes R1R

The Proxes R1R is released into the UK market for the first time at Autosport. This exceptional tyre is ideal for Track days combining a special high-grip rubber compound with a race-inspired construction!

This is why the Japanese car giant Mitsubishi, known for producing high performance cars chose to have the Toyo Proxes R1R as original equipment for their latest Evo, the incredibly powerful Evo 10 FQ-400 which has over 400bhp, hence the name!

In terms of performance, the Proxes R1R is the intermediate between the vastly popular Proxes T1R and Proxes R888. It has an advanced racing casing design and increased contact patch area which provides excellent handling performance and traction on both the street and track, and means it’s truly at home when being pushed to its limits. The R1R is the perfect tyre for the occasional motorsport competitor who requires a less aggressive tyre than the R888.

Toyo’s on-track experience and extensive technical knowledge helped develop a new compound mix of highly reinforced carbon black, silica and polymers for the R1R which gives superior handling, high-speed stability and outstanding grip, even in the wet.

The R1R is not only outstanding in performance but looks the part too! Its stunning directional tread pattern possesses arrow head grooves for excellent water drainage from the wider section of the groove which enhances its wet performance, whilst the narrower sections give superb dry performance.

The Proxes R1R is the ultimate tyre for driver enthusiasts and is available in sizes from 15” to 18” and in profiles from 55 series to 35 series. Come along to see our product on show at Autosport, on the Time Attack stand, Hall 20, 2655.

Although the R1R has already been released in Japan and Europe, the long awaiting British driving enthusiasts can now buy this superb tyre through our dedicated network of Approved Motorsport Dealers which you can find on the motorsport pages at www.toyo.co.uk.
