Ken Block was performing tricks at the Tokyo Auto Salon at the weekend. He was turning Toyo Tires into smoke 😂😂... https://t.co/scD7LvOTfB via @toyotires_eu
From the track to the road, this new extreme high performance tire offers performance at the highest level. Proxes R1R is an uncompromising extreme performance tire designed specifically for grip, handling and steering precision.
Silica-Reinforced, High-Grip Tread CompoundImproves grip for better handling and performance during high-spirited driving.
Unidirectional Arrowhead Tread DesignShallow grooves and a unidirectional pattern achieve balanced performance between wet and dry conditions.
Tapered Center Block EdgeStabilizes center block movement to decrease irregular wear.
Helps to increase hydroplaning resistance.
Multi-Width EVAC ChannelsImprove water evacuation.
Narrow width at the tire edge widens the shoulder block area to enhance steering.
Stability Control SlitsProvide resistance to irregular wear.
Improve dry performance by maintaining block stiffness during aggressive braking.
CAUTION! The rubber compounds used in these tires have unique properties that can cause them to lose some of their flexibilty when used or handled in temperatures below -9°C. This loss in flexibility can lead to potential cracking and other damage to the tire.
The example on the right illustrates the potential damage.
To minimise the chances of this happening, consumers and installers are advised to follow the instructions below:
1. Do not move or operate a vehicle fitted with these tires in temperatures below -9°C.
2. Avoid moving these tires in temperatures below -9°C
3. Before mounting or dismounting, store these tires for at least 24 hours in a temperature controlled environment of 200C or warmer and always inspect for signs of cracking before mounting. Never use tires that have cracked.
4. Remove the wheels from the vehicle and deflate the tires to half the normal air pressure during prolonged periods of inactivity or for storage.
