Yo,

Would like to hear some feedbacks on these tires. Anyone here who currently using Toyo tires, would like to share bit of their experiences.

The link below is under the category of 'Sports Tires'. I'm thinking of giving it a try on my next change.

Which is the best choice?

Toyo Tires - Sports Car

Am using but only 13". Very very super comfortable, dry and wet excellent gripping, quiet.

My cousin Honda SV4 using also TR1. Maybe due to sport tyre, to me bit noisy but comfort and gripping still excellent !

All made in Japan not like Michelin, Bridgestone made in Thailand :p

I have recently changed to 4 Toyo T1-R Proxes to my ride (215/45/17) and the grip in the wet and dry is awesome...only thing is that it is a bit noisy on some surface. But then again that is expected of any performance tires in this price range. I would say it is a good buy.

i'm also using T1R...
has been 1yr n 3mths perhaps....
i dunno how to judge oso....
but then hav confidence lo......

1 thing u hav to becareful.....
always rotate ur tyres frequently....
now my front 2 piece will tend to go right side.....
no matter how the allignment was done.....
tire shop guy told me its the tire;s prob....
so no choice....
if take the rear ones n put in front....
then ok.....
but then rear ones gonna botak on outter side....

moral of the story....
always check ur tire;s wear....
n also b more hardworking to do allignment n bla bla bla.....

1 thing i notice....
seen a lot of T1R users nowadays....
looks like this tire is getting more n more famous.....
after using it....
make me addicted to performance tires oni.....
next i'm thinkin of using neova for my next change....

sigh....
gonna b broke soon!!!

bro calvin.. i bought for RM620 a peice for 235/45 R17.. origian evo rims le... R888 is selling for 600 and tir is selling for around 500 plus for my size... r1r is the newest.. the looks is not like t1r but is dem nice and dem fierece.. is like a semi slick wet tire... no joke.. u can check it online and u wont regret...ya R888 is semi slick and soft compound even falken Rt215 and Rt 615 cant fight R888.. but u see R888 pattern.. there is no lines for water to go out... is can say a totally dry tire.. RT 215 and Rt 615 can still be use on wet.. R888 cannot ... no water to suck and no water to go out..

so far no complain on dry le for R1R but is a bit hard le.. but wet u will love it .. but u must take care.. side wall gone onli u ahve to change tire edi haaha...

bro u got it wrong bro... bridgestone and michelin .. yes they come from thailand for size below R16 downwards.... R17 upworths is all from japan.... also 225 and above is all frm japan.. 235/45 R17 for evo potenza G3 is from japan... but any how.. both are bridgestone factory.. so technology wise are the same.. they have a plant in thailand for R16 and below is act want to match the other tires manufacture price... mostly for average ppl. for example G3 for R15 is onli 200 plus.. other tire manufacture is around the same price u can compare.., if they make it made in japan it will be 400 plus... mainly is becaues of the tire brand and the research they put in... so is like u paying for their brand la like nike and adidas... hahhaa... but is the same....

why bridgestone and michelin from japan so expensive ..??mainly bcoz they are famous and their brand is there for a long time already.. all know bridgestone and michelin and good tires.. 2ndly... is their testing way... for example .. lets say toyo or falken, they are not as big as michelin and bridgestone.. they ask a professional driver or a racer.. and ask them to test their tire with a particular car.. then after tht they will give the feeback to them.. then they tell everyone in the world that what the racer tell them... but michelin and bridgestone.. really tested their tire with different types of car.. dirrent racer.. and some hgih end technology way.. so thats why its expensive... bridgestone and michelin is a big big company.. their name cannot be talked back... this is why bridgestone and michelin is so expensive
