Toyo Proxes S/T II Tire Review & Rating

Combining an attractive tread design with solid performance is what Toyo has attempted to do with the Proxes S/T II. Built for drivers of sport trucks, SUVs and crossovers, this model features some of Toyo’s latest in all-season tire technology.

An M+S rated all-season tread compound is matched to an asymmetric pattern that is also computer-optimized for maximum traction and handling performance. To that end, this tire handles itself quite well on both dry and wet pavement. Steering is quick and responsive, while tire stability is impressive as well.

Toyo Proxes ST II Review

To reduce road noise and increase comfort, Toyo uses its unique Silent Wall Technology and five pitch tread sequence in the tread. The results speak for themselves as many drivers have mentioned how quiet this tire rides on the road. Linear grooving reduces wear and tear and contributes to overall durability as well as increasing cornering performance and handling.

Inside the tire are dual steel belts that are nylon reinforced for added strength and durability, as well as promotes more even treadwear. 16-24 inch sizes are available, and speed ratings of V and W. There are also optional sizes that come with an E load rating as well.

Pros

  • Good traction performance in dry and wet weather
  • Low noise due to unique technology
  • Look great

Cons

  • Not as good in winter as claimed

Overall Thoughts

Toyo Proxes S/T II’s deliver pretty good traction on wet or dry pavement. Braking and acceleration are above average among tires in this class, and while cornering grip would considered to be better than most truck/SUV tires, we found it to be a less grippy in the corners than we would have liked.

One other area that we found lacking with this model is the winter weather performance. It can handle a dusting to an inch or two of the white stuff, but anything more than that can become problematic.

An area that this tire performs exceptionally in would be in how quiet it is. Toyo has done a remarkable job in eliminating road noise with this model. You’ll find the ride is comfortable and responsive on long distances as well.

Overall the Proxes S/T II is a good value for the performance it provides. Although not the best in class, it provides more than adequate performance to go with a longer lasting treadlife.
