Default Toyo T1R is NOT expensive!

I'm tired of everyone calling the T1r an expensive tire because they saw some initial pricing on some canadian site.

The tire is ~$140 for 225/45/17!!!

http://www.liteswap.com/merchant2/me...ode=toyosummer

This is probably the site everyone is looking at:
http://www.1010tires.com/tire.asp?ti...del=Proxes+T1R

Notice it's in Canadian currency...


So someone buy this tire and give me some feedback!

No seriously, is anyone running these yet?

you do know that the RE-92s from Bridgestone carry a 160 treadwear tire right? so by your logic, that tire would have better traction than the new Azenis, old Azenis, Hankook RS2s.....on and on...

Bingo. Treadwear rating are next to useless since each manufacturer sets there own ratings. They are not universal so comparing treadwear ratings between companys is like comparing apples and oranges.

I don't follow your logic. Are you saying it has a high treadwear rating and therefore is a crappy tire that should cost less, or that it has a low treadwear rating and therefore is a crappy tire that should cost less?

In a 225/45-17:
Kumho MX - 220 - $135
Goodyear F1GS-D3 - 280 - $145 or $171, depending on speed rating
Yoko AVS Sport - 180 - $148
Bridgestone RE750 - 340 - $150
Michelin Pilot Exalto PE2 - 240 - $151
Dunlop SP9000 - 280 - $161
BFG T/A KD - 200 - $167
Bridgestone RE050A - 140 - $170

Again, I don't follow your logic.

Tell me about it... I'm still trying to find a 285-315 series tire in a 16" rim. I'm stuck running 265/45/16 victoracers because:

1. It's the largest width 16" tire out there that's not $218 per corner.
2. I haven't sold my left nut yet for a custom pair of 17" rims.

The Kumho V710 in that same size would be much faster, and is listed at $178 on Tire Rack's site. Why do you want a 16" tire? The 285/30/18 has a significantly smaller diameter than what you are running now. The 315/35/17 has a diameter very close to your current tire...

Perhaps you missed this part...

So I did, but what 16" wheel that's not custom would fit a 285-315?

Regardless, if you can mount the 265 Victoracer you can mount the 265 V710 and it will be better.
