Toyo Proxes 4 plus

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

Well, the old girl is just about ready for some new shoes.  With 54k+ on the odo, I guess it was bound to happen right?  I went to Les Schwab tires today and they only list one tire.  I know there are lots of others, which I have checked out at America's Tires.  But, I would like to knwo what you think of the one first. 

 

It is the Toyo Proxes 4 plus.  104 load rating and W speed rating.  They had one on the shelf.  I liked the tread pattern and the look of the tire.  It has  50K tread wear warranty.  The size is 255/45ZR-19XL.  So what do you guys think of this tire? 

 

Thanks,

Bruce

I guess the first question is do you really need a Z   rated tire?  The Z rated tire will likely not last as long as your first set of tires 54,000 miles. I don't know anything about that particular tire.

The car has the Michelin Primacy on it now.  I don't like their look.  They have narrow shoulders which give the appearance the rims are to wide.  But the rims are factory.  So I am looking for a tire with a wider shoulder. 

 

So how about the Michelin Pilot Super Sport?

 

Or the Pirelli P Zero?

 

Both of those have a better visual apperance and about a hundred bucks cheaper each than the Toyos.  BUT, the Toyo has a 50k mileage guarantee.  The Michelin has a 30k. And the Pirelli has?  Nothing. 

 

Thanks,

B.
