08 Sep Toyo Unveils Proxes ST III
The Toyo Proxes ST III from Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. is designed to offer both looks and performance for sport trucks and SUVs.
The Proxes ST III features an arrowhead tread design. With a wider tread and a new silica-based tread compound, Toyo says the Proxes ST III stops up to 6 feet shorter in wet conditions according to results of a third-party test. The Proxes ST III (in size 275/55R20) was measured against the Toyo Proxes ST II in the same size in a stopping test from 60 mph to zero.
The new tire is designed to deliver optimal handling, all-season performance, consistent wear and a smooth, and quiet ride. The tire is backed by a 40,000-mile warranty.
•Arrowhead tapers help deliver increased tread block stiffness resulting in better straight-line stability.
•Directional shoulder blocks stabilize the tread blocks for better braking performance and a quieter ride.
•Lightning grooves help enable better water evacuation on wet surfaces.
•Multi-wave sipes minimize irregular wear for greater longevity and help produce a smooth, quiet ride.
The Proxes ST III is available in 45 sizes, with 28 of those sizes in the 20-inches and above category. For more information, visit www.toyotires.com or call your East Bay Tire sales representative today.
