Adding Greater Performance and Style for Sport Trucks and SUVs
Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. introduces the Toyo® Proxes® ST III™, now available at Toyo Tires dealers throughout the US. Adding greater performance and style to sport trucks and SUVs, the Proxes ST III boasts a unique arrowhead tread design. This directional tire takes both appearance and performance to a next level.
The Proxes ST III is the perfect balance of dynamic appearance and sport-oriented performance. With a wider tread and a new silica-based tread compound the Proxes ST III stops up to 6 feet shorter in wet conditions while offering superb handling, excellent all-season performance, consistent wear and a smooth, quiet ride now supported by a 40,000-mile warranty.
Arrowhead tapers help deliver boosted tread block stiffness leading to better straight-line stability. Directional shoulder blocks stabilize the tread blocks for better braking performance and a quieter ride. And when the weather gets wet, ‘lightning grooves’ help enable better water evacuation. Furthermore, the multi-wave sipes minimize irregular wear for greater longevity and help provide a smooth, quiet ride.
“Toyo Tires was one of the first brands to develop a sport truck tire with the introduction of its Proxes S/T,” stated Randy Gaetz, Senior Vice-President of Sales, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “The Proxes S/T helped establish the sport truck and SUV trend, which has since been embraced by automakers and custom builders. Both the design and compound technology found in the Proxes ST III help to make it the new standard in that segment.”
Available in sizes to fit 17- to 24-inch wheels, and widths up to 335mm, the new Toyo Proxes ST III is a serious upgrade for new’s high-tech trucks and SUVs.
