Toyo Proxes ST III Review

Toyo’s next-generation of performance all-season tire, the Proxes ST III delivers more grip for more miles.

PROS

  • Dry grip
  • Improved wet weather performance
  • Style
  • Tread life
  • Impressive selection of sizes

CONS

  • Lack of winter grip

With a look that just screams “high-performance” the Proxes ST III delivers, offering some of the very best dry weather grip an all-season tire can provide. Plus, thanks to “lightning grooves” that run the full length of the tire, there’s plenty of capability to evacuate water. As a result, wet weather grip is much improved over the standard Proxes ST and compared to the old Proxes ST II, these tires stop six feet shorter in wet weather.

The arrow-shaped tread pattern delivers plenty of grip with a significant contact patch, while that large center area of rubber makes for excellent high speed stability, as well as a more immediate response to direction changes.

Larger exterior tread blocks help the tire maintain traction while cornering, while the wavy sipes are there to ensure even treadwear and a longer overall tread life.

When it comes to tread life, Toyo backs these tires with a 40,000 mile guarantee, which is solid for such a performance-focused tire. Most owners report well above that.

In terms of complaints, some owners report the ride quality as being a bit rough, but they are in the minority. And no matter the tire, vehicles equipped with lower sidewalls tend to have a slightly less comfortable ride, as a trade-off for better handling.

With fantastic dry performance, as well as improved wet performance, these all-seasons really deliver. With a quiet and comfortable ride, and plenty of style, they’re an ideal option for large SUVs and modern luxury performance utility vehicles.

And because Toyo offers them in so many different sizes, you’re almost guaranteed to find a Proxes ST III for your ride. We even appreciate that there are fitments in extra large sizes including a large selection of 22-inch sizes as well as even some 24-inch sizes. Toyo has long been committed to the aftermarket, and this is just another example of that.
