  1. Toyo T1R for Giulia QV

    Alfa Giulia
    I’ve had my 2017 QV for a month now. It came with 15000km on the clock. I noticed it has Toyo Proxes T1R’s on the back and Michelin Pilot Sport’s on the front - all with plenty of meat - can’t have been on long. I presume the Pirelli P-Zero Corsa’s got chewed up. The current ones seem fine for...

  5. Toyo T1 sport tyres on Alfa Romeo 156

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, I put four new Toyo T1 sport tyres on my 156 1.9 16v last year, the fronts have worn to the indicators in approx 9,000 miles. The rears have loads of tread left. Is this high wear on the fronts normal on these cars or is it the Toyo tyres? The tracking has been done recently, wear is even...

  10. Toyo T1R

    Alfa GTA
    I will never ever fit these to a GTA. I advise you all to stay away from them. They cannot cope with the power at all and whatsmore, the sidewalls are like jelly. I went into a roundabout at low speed last night (slightly damp) and I might as well have let go of the steering wheel, hardly...

  13. 147 15" wheels and Toyo T1-Rs?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Having recently treated my 147 to a new cambelt, variator, MAF (best £100 ever spent, FWIW) and new front and rear badges, I think it's about time the tyres were replaced. The front set are getting near the legal limit, the rears aren't too bad, but I can't bring myself to change only two out of...
  14. Back to 14'' wheels & TOYO tires...

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Hi fellows! Finally I decided to get back to 14'' wheels as my alfa is a 1350cc and a 15''x 55x 185 was feeling a bit heavy and the car was suffering a bit wen first starting in traffic. A friend of mine brought me from Greece/Athens a pair of 14'' ADVANTI racing Ultralight rims and 4 TOYO...

  16. Pirelli or Toyo?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    When replacing my brakes I noticed a bad gash to the inside face of my tyre. It's a conti sport 2, and to replace it is going to be £130.00 for one. I've been on the bay and seen some Pirelli p zero nero for about £160.00 a pair and Toyo proxes t1-r for £140.00 a pair. Which would you go for?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I know tyres have been done to death but I'm needing new fronts for my 159 and am struggling to find replacement Sessantas. Was thinking of getting Toyo Proxes T1Rs - anyone have any experience of these? I'm looking for comments on noise, grip, longevity etc.

  19. Toyo Proxes Lifespan

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Anybody else running Toyo Proxes T1Rs found the lifespan a little short? Had mine on for about a year now and have found that my nearside tyre is borderline legal on the inside edge, I know this none uniform wear isn't normal and I put it down to buggered wishbones and buggered ARB bushes...
  20. New Toyo Boots on the GT. :D

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hallo, After much umming and erring I decided on four new Toyo T1-R proxies to replace the original and err treadless Goodyear GSD Eagle Vulcher Falcon things. In truth I only really needed the fronts but one of the rears had a slow puncture and the other one had a fast puncture, so I thought...
