While watching Speedvision tonight, during the Speedvision Cup race they talked about the spec tires which were Toyo Proxes T1-S. Since there were a couple of ZO6's in the race it figures that they would make the tires in the stock size. When I checked their website, they do list the stock sizes. Does anyone have experience with these tires and where can you buy them?

The Toyos are excellent performance tires.

They are reasonably priced also.

I would not have any reservations putting them on my Z. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Call Vilven tire at 217-583-3277. They sell the tires to us, and should be able to sell them to the public. It is a good, all purpose performance tire.

You should be able to find them at a local tire dealer, however. There are 2 shops in my area that have signs up.

If you read my post on 1" wider wheels (keeping in mind I have a "regular" C5 and not a Z06), I mentioned my choice of tire was Toyo Proxes T1-S. I have 265/40/17 front and 295/35/18 rear. They should be mounted soon and I can then give you a report on how I like them.

My Nittos performed surprisingly well at VIR this past weekend, but I think the Toyos are a level above them and are on par with Bridgestone Pole Positions.

I got mine from John at http://www.tirenet.com - I paid $948 for all four in these sizes, which is pretty reasonable.

How do these tires compare to our stock ones or Kumho's for example??
Figuring our stock ones are good but kumho's are 1-2 seconds a lap quicker and Hoosiers are 1 second probably over that at least.
Where does it fall in there??
