Toyo Tires has launched their latest Proxes CR1 passenger car and SUV tyres in Malaysia. The Proxes CR1 models are claimed to have four distinct benefits namely Silent, Safety, High-Grade and Comfort. 


The Proxes CR1 produces 11% less road noise compared to its predecessor, the Nano Energy 3.  The Poxes CR1 uses noise reducing materials inside the tyre.

Pitch noise is dispersed by the silent wall and out-in different pitch arrangement. A noise protection sheet is incorporated within the construction of the tyre to reduce casing noise. 


Another improvement from its predecessor is the 2% reduction in aquaplaning. The Proxes CR1 has a highly developed drainage system made of wide circumferential grooves that assist in quickly dispelling water from the contact area.

On dry roads, the triple taper and rib design improves the performance by securing rib rigidity and suppresses circumferential fluctuation resulting in less uneven wear.

In addition, the multi-wave sipes help in the prevention of irregular wear by ensuring block stiffness and a joint-less cap ply improves high speed performance.


Better in terms of noise and safety, the Proxes CR1 also has lower rolling resistance for better fuel consumption. 


The Proxes CR1 is designed to provide a smoother and relaxing drive utilising Toyo’s proprietary advanced technologies - T-Mode and Nano Balance.

Mr. Tan Song Chye, President/Managing Director of Toyo Tyre Sales and Marketing Malaysia Sdn Bhd, said that the new tyres are sure to satisfy even the most discerning drivers who appreciate a superior performance tyre that consistently performs well

Tengku Djan Ley, Malaysia’s professional drift driver, testifies that the tyre noise level is minimal and he felt comfortable and safe driving both on highways and ordinary roads. 

Proxes CR1 passenger car tyres are available in 36 sizes, ranging from 14 to 18 inch rim diameters, while the Proxes CR1 SUV tyres are available in 9 sizes, ranging from 17 to 19 inch rim diameters (see fact sheet).

The recommended retail prices for Proxes CR1 passenger car tyres range from RM160 to RM440, while Proxes CR1 SUV tyres range from RM380 to RM580, depending on tyre size. These tyres are available at Toyo Centres and Silverstone Centres throughout Malaysia.
