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 has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

28.09.2015fromPeter 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.
10.05.2015fromDimitrios 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.
09.11.2014fromGrim 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.
23.09.2014fromchris 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.
