Toyo Tires warranty program

PASSENGER & P-METRIC LIGHT TRUCK TIRE LIMITED WARRANTY - 

Proxes RA1

Setup Guidelines

Toyo Tires recommends the following general set up guidelines for the Proxes RA1:

  • Operating Temperature: 71°c to 104°c (160°F to 220°F)
  • Hot Inflation Pressures: High 30s to Low 40s (psi)
  • Camber: -2.5° to -5.0°
  • Caster: As much positive as possible
  • Shaving: 4/32” is recommended for competition  (grooves remain until 2/32”)
  • Rim width: a tire size that falls within the range of midpoint to maximum rim widths is recommended


Proxes RA1 Safety Advisory

  • The tread compound is specifically designed to operate under racing conditions making it difficult to achieve optimum  adhesion levels under normal street driving.
  • The shallower tread depth of 6/32nds limits the tire’s performance capabilities under normal street driving conditions.
  • Performance limitations are particularly evident in low  ambient temperatures or during the spring and fall when ambient temperatures fluctuate significantly.
  • Wet performance is limited when operating outside the optimum temperature range, and when the tire is at less than full tread depth.
  • Do not use the tire if it has cracked.
