Looks like it's a tire made for the wet. It's a nice bonus that it's quiet and comfortable, good for heavy use on passenger cars, SUVs and minivans. Should be able to find out more technical specs when they announce on November 19th.

Not ngam you lah, these are mid tyres, even their TR1 cannot match your PS3, how can the CR1 ?
Ya, I agree with you. The Michelin PS3 is a high-performance tire but the Proxes CR1 is in the same midrange category as the Michelin Primacy, designed for quietness, comfort and wet weather conditions from the feedback on the Toyo Tires Thailand Facebook page.

Just wondering what most people look for in an SUV tire as I’m looking to get a new set for my CR-V. Is it comfort, quietness, handling or price?

Managed to get a screenshot of the sizes and pricing for the Proxes CR1 during the livestream. Price not bad for the features.

Toyo Proxes CR1 Sizes and Price List.jpg


Paultan.org - Toyo Proxes CR1 and CR1 SUV launched in Malaysia – replaces NanoEnergy 3, priced from RM160 to RM580

The company is touting several key features that improve the tyre’s noise reduction, comfort and safety. Firstly, the CR1 features what Toyo calls a “silent wall” along the grooves of the tyre to reduce noise, plus a pitch arrangement that differs on the inside and outside to disperse the pitch noise in each area, reducing pattern noise. A noise protection sheet has also been incorporated in the construction to lower casing noise.

As for handling, the Japanese tyre maker is claiming superior performance in the wet, thanks to four large grooves (three grooves on tyres 185 mm and narrower) to enhance water drainage. On dry roads, the triple taper and rib design increases rib rigidity to improve performance and reduce uneven wear by suppressing circumferential fluctuation.

Further reducing irregular tyre wear are the multi-wave sipes that increase block stiffness, as well as a jointless cap ply that improves high-speed performance. Meanwhile, the sidewall is made from a new compound that reduces rolling resistance and thus, fuel consumption.

Comfort has also been improved through the use of proprietary T-Mode tyre simulation and Nano Balance material design technologies. Overall, the Proxes CR1 is claimed to reduce road noise by 11% and aquaplaning by two per cent compared to the NanoEnergy 3, improving wet-weather performance.
