They are excellent for what they are designed to do. A Performance tire with all-season capability.

We have been testing a Pontiac G8 with these tires on it and the car drives amazing. Very quiet, great ride, and excellent in the snow as well as corning in the dry. Actually Joey Scarallo Jr who drives our race cars did some testing with it and really put it through its paces during the winter ina snow storm...

I have been looking into these as well. Thoughts from actual Camaro owners would be appreciated.

I wont be using them in the snow at all. Just shopping for new tires and want a long lasting tire that looks good and is quiet. wont ever be on track just daily driving. but dont want to pay an arm and a leg.

We had them on our most recent Camaro (we have had 6 so far) that we did up over the winter.

Sad to say for the Pirelli, the difference between the Toyo and the Pirelli was like night and day. The biggest things you will notice will be a better ride and more stability over pavement changes.

I really would rather get these tires local, last time I got tires online I had issues. But none of my local tire shops carry the Toyo brand.

The Toyos are great. If you call us to order a set there will not be any dramas.

Hmm found a local shop that can get them for me. But they will be almost $120 more than online with shipping even. Just would rather have a local person to deal with should any issues arise. Oh well, guess I'll just have to give it a shot.

I'm looking at getting a stock size set of these as well. Found a good price at treaddepot.com and shipping is reasonably priced.

I have had them for over a year and I am VERY disappointed with wet weather performance! I don't know about winter performance since I have Blizzaks for winter driving.

Are you talking about the Toyo Proxes 4 Plus tire? Your signiture shows Toyo Proxes 4 which is the old design.

I have the old design on my rears and I think the wet weather traction for normal to slightly aggressive is really good, I'd imagine the new design would be better.

I have the old Toyos (not plus) and think they are a great all weather tire.
No complaints.

I have a set of these on my car, and I have full PFADT race suspension, a turbo, and nitrous, so they really take a beating. I think overall they are a good set of tires for an everyday driver that gets flogged every so often. The are great through the bends for an all season tire, you just have to be willing to push them. They will begin to squeal in protest long before they let go. And when they finally do let go, it's not an act of violence as it can be with some tires. Given that you are driving correctly the rear end gently slides out and is very controllable. I have only driven once with them in the snow and they preform as well as can be expected for a car a lot of power in icy conditions.

Yes that is the only place I find them online. A local tire shop can order them but they want at least $100 more than that website.

Had the Toyo proxes 4 plus installed today. put about 70 miles in constant rain 55-65 mph...then on the way back drizzle here and there 70 miles 70 mph... Very impressed by The Tires. Much more of a quiet ride.. road noise is about half of it was with the Perellis. rain traction was no problem..Very happy with my purchase. O.E. sizes installed w/ 4 wheel alignment . $858 out the door. I can post a few pics if anyone is interested what they look like on the 20"s
