What seperates Mustang owners; however, is that some make their dream come true. Some owners have connections, some get sponsers, and most just spend lots of money to make it happen.

[01/17/2003] Toyo Tires® Expands Proxes RA-1™ Sizing for the Track

Toyo Tires® has announced the addition of a variety of new tire sizes to their race-proven line of Proxes RA-1™ radials. Highly popular with roadracing, autocross and touring cars, these DOT-approved competition tires are now available in the following new 17-inch sizes: 205/40ZR17, 235/45ZR17, 255/40ZR17 and 275/40ZR17. Three new 18-inch diameter tires have also been produced for the demands of today’s high-powered machines, a 225/40ZR18, 275/35ZR18 and a 335/30ZR18.

The Proxes RA-1™ features improved cornering stability and transient response. Its superior thermal stability ensures a more consistent, longer-lasting tire for repeated use on the track. As a result, drivers can rely on consistent aggregate times during a race. Chassis setups are much easier as well, thanks to the consistency of the Proxes RA-1™. The tread is molded with an 8/32-inch tread depth for superior wet traction, while it can be shaved to 3/32-inch to generate extreme dry cornering force.

Proxes RA-1™ tires feature “V” or “Z” ratings (depending on size), and are also available in 13-, 14-, 15-,16-, 17- and 18-inch. All Proxes RA-1™ tires are labeled with the following ratings: Tread Wear 40, Traction A and Temperature A. For more information, contact your local Toyo Tires® retailer, or browse the Performance Tire section of the Toyo website at

Toyo manufactures and distributes a complete line of high performance and original equipment replacement tires for passenger car, light truck, commercial truck, bus, off-road and construction applications.
