Toyo T1R

Anyone have any experience with Toyo T1Rs? Just found a killer deal on some 345s to replace my Nittos.

Yes, I have had the T1R and the (Proxes One). Both are very good tires. The T1R is not a balanced and soft as the Proxe one. They are decent for a sports car, but I think they are best on a sedan. They are not as soft or precise. They made my steering wheel feel numb. Best way I can describe it. YMMV, plus $ is always a factor, they are definatley one of the top 10 tires made.

I've always liked Toyo tires. I've ran a few models of Toyo's in the past and i liked them, kinda remind me of the v12's to be honest with a better sidewall.

I personally like the Hankook Venus Evo over the T1R. I had the T1S and T1R, and the R is definitely an improvement. As others mentioned, grip isn't the best. I didn't like the sidewalls either as it was a bit on the soft side. The Hankook sidewalls are also a bit soft so I finally replaced them with Continental DWs. So far so good for the money.

T1Rs are a great value and are great in the rain. However, they have noticeably softer sidewalls than the RE050As. When I swapped a set of RE050As with a set of T1Rs on my old G35 they felt downright dangerous.

Some of it may have been attributable to the mold release compound but they felt that way for a while. Eventually (after about 1500 miles), either I got used to them or they scrubbed in enough to feel comfortable.


Let me know what your impressions are. Also, they look damn good IMHO.

This tire has a wide array of differing opinions so I will let you know what I think.

Can't wait to see what you come up with. You're the reason I went with the set up I have.
