PROXES R1R's advanced casing design provides excellent handling performance on both street and track. Our on track experience helped develop a high-grip compound that still achieves a 140 UTQG treadwear rating.
Our proprietary computer aided pattern design software allowed us the freedom to create its aggressive looks, excellent aquaplaning resistance while remaining quiet.
From the track to the road, this new extreme high performance tire offers performance at the highest level. Proxes R1R is an uncompromising extreme performance tire designed specifically for grip, handling and steering precision.
Silica-Reinforced, High-Grip Tread Compound
Improves grip for better handling and performance during high-spirited driving.
Unidirectional Arrowhead Tread Design
Shallow grooves and a unidirectional pattern achieve balanced performance between wet and dry conditions.
Tapered Center Block Edge
Stabilizes center block movement to decrease irregular wear. Helps to increase hydroplaning resistance.
Multi-Width EVAC Channels
Improve water evacuation. Narrow width at the tire edge widens the shoulder block area to enhance steering.
Stability Control Slits
Provide resistance to irregular wear. Improve dry performance by maintaining block stiffness during aggressive braking.
Advanced Autocross-Inspired Casing With Modified Radial Construction
Improves steering response and handling by optimizing the contact patch shape.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

28.09.2015 from Peter Clarke Track and road tire, not for most users. very stiff and precise with great dry grip. Hard ride and soft compound, they don't last long but they are great fun.
10.05.2015 from Dimitrios K. The price is high comparing to others, but after all it's a special tyre.
They don't last too long. Anyway i can leave with these facts.
09.11.2014 from Grim Reaper Not quite as good as the R888, can feel the loss of grip compared to those on cornering and braking. Better in the wet but there's not much in it. If you're short on cash these are a good alternative.
23.09.2014 from chris Bought for a track day at brands.
Brilliant in the wet only one of the group of cars I was with not to Spon and to get heat in the on the wet.
Fantastic grip in the dry but the do overheat quickly and wear quickly. I think the is mainly due to the tread block moving which is what makes them so good in the wet.
