Focused on exceptional speed and longevity, key features and benefits include a new racing tread compound and enhanced contact patch that improves grip for quicker lap times, reinforced sidewall and high-modulus bead filler that improves stability and steering responsiveness, a symmetric non-directional two-groove 4/32-inch deep tread design, and wear markers for easy tread wear inspection.

“Our main focus when developing the Proxes R at our R&D facilities in Japan, was on improving performance while retaining durability,” said Cameron Parsons, product engineer & field analyst, for competition & specialty tires. “As enthusiasts ourselves, we understand the requirements of long track days and spirited, competitive driving. Throughout our design and testing, this all-new 40 UTQG tire has shown significant improvements in lap times while holding up to the demands of racing.”

The tire will be produced in 26 unique sizes and load/speed combinations for 15- to 20-inch wheel diameters. Ten sizes will be available starting in April 2024 with the remaining sizes available by the end of summer. The Proxes RR will continue to be supported throughout the 2024 racing season for various spec tire classes.
