New post: Toyo Tyres to Be Control Rubber for Hyundai Coupe Cup in 2015


Toyo tyres ,like so many other tyre manufacturers are constantly dipping their toes into the motorsport scene, at all levels, this article is about Toyo supplying the Hyundai Coupe Cup in the 2015 season using their R888 tyre.

Toyo tyres backing smaller motorsport races

I have been a great fan of Toyo tyres for many years now and one of the reasons is because of the smaller motorsport events that they supply their tyres to.

They support events such as the Honda V-Tec challenge; these events give the chance to take the first steps into motor racing, for the owners of the performance Honda cars. These Honda owners have got together to create their own dedicated racing series.

Toyo tyres also support the Jaguar Saloon & GT Championship;

These are a group of Jaguar car addicts who are members of the Jaguar Enthusiasts club and organise race events and social gatherings.

Toyo tyres keep up with the times

Toyo have developed the new Toyo Proxes CF2. Enabling them to use the latest modern materials available to them.Thus,in the drive for a greener and lighter tyre. Hence for the modern car and SUV. Therefore the  tyre structures and the tread pattern design. As a result, will help Toyo to  guarantee a high level of Safety.Including, durability, customer savings, and comfort. Of course, when driving the car.

Toyo Proxes CF2 benefits from an improved tyre construction which incorporates a new full-silica tread compound. The new tyre  is expected to have a longer life, an excellent wet road performance and much lower fuel consumption than its predecessors.

I have always been a big fan of Toyo tyres products and that includes this Toyo Proxes CF2 and in my opinion is the right choice for drivers who are looking  for a high performing and a safe tyre for there medium and also high powered cars. To bring the Toyo situation up to date we no longer sell many cheap Toyo tyres in Halifax, because of a change in their marketing pland. Almost all their tyre sales now have to go through a wholesaler, although i must admit that the stock is now more available to us, but we make less profits.

Toyo tyres

Toyo have always been one of my favorite tyre companies to deal with. Most of the time over the past 30 years Toyo have been a big supplier of small independent tyre companies such as my own company here in Halifax UK. But like most other tyre companies toyo decided to go down the tyre wholesaler route , to sell their products, thus cutting out us retailers, we also had an option to buy direct, but the tyres became available to anyone to sell and toyo became just another cheap car tyre on the market. The outcome is that retailers stopped sellintoyo tyres  .

Naturally, going onto to sell other similar products, such as General Tyres. We now use Yokohama tyres and Apollo tyres in there place, although Toyo are still a good product and if their policy ever changed, i would take them on board again,”what goes around, comes around” as the saying goes.

Toyo tyres are today still supporting the F1600 race series with their tyre products. Zacharie Robichon is still a prominent contestant.
