Cypress, CA - Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. (Toyo Tires®) introduces the Toyo® Proxes® ST III™, now available at Toyo Tires dealers across the US. Adding greater performance and style to sport trucks and SUVs, the Proxes ST III boasts a distinctive arrowhead tread design. This directional tire takes both appearance and performance to a new level.
The Proxes ST III is the perfect balance of dynamic looks 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 delivering superb handling, excellent all-season performance, consistent wear and a smooth, quiet ride now 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. And when the weather gets wet, ‘lightning grooves’ help enable better water evacuation. In addition, the multi-wave sipes minimize irregular wear for greater longevity and help produce 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,” said 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 vehicle manufacturers 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 today’s high-tech trucks and SUVs. To learn more about the new Proxes ST III and the full line of tires to fit any lifestyle, go to toyotires.com.
