I went down to Town Fair Tire today to get my summer rims and Yokohama tires put back on. The wear on the Yoko's was uneven and bumpy probably as a result of aggressive driving and the camber on this vehicle.

I think I remember a post where Oldman says these tires are not good on a highly cambered vehicle.

Anyways, they were worn to the point of being dangerous, and I had bought the extended warranty. So the tire guys offered to give me some new tires for half price. I decided to go with the Toyo Proxes 4 in the 235/45/17 size.

I've driven on them for about 20 minutes tonight and so far they seem good. Does anybody else here have any thoughts or experience with these tires?

I'm really loving these Toyos. I went on a nice windy road drive today and then high speed on the way home and they performed very well.

I will definately not miss the Yokohamas. Yes, they perform better when driving extremely aggressively, but that is about 1% of the time. The Toyos handle very well, but don't jar my teeth when hitting potholes, which are everywhere in New England right now.

I'm very happy. I even went with the wider 235 size as compared to the 225 width of the Yokos.
