Proxes TQ

DOT Drag Radial

This DOT drag radial* was designed to help muscle cars and street machines transfer power to the ground.  An optimized tread design, coupled with a unique tread compound, and strengthened radial construction give superior grip, straight-line performance, and high-speed stability as you blast down the track.  The Proxes TQ is also designed to be quiet on the drive home.  

*Caution: Recommended for competition events only.

A. The Proxes TQ may be used legally on public roads. It has a tread pattern designed to work on both the street and at the drag strip, and utilizes a radial construction. The Proxes Drag Slick on the other hand, is NOT street legal, does not have any tread grooves and is of bias-ply construction.

A. "LL" stands for Light Load (LL). Information about LL tires can be found by clicking here.

A. The Proxes TQ's asymmetric tread pattern was designed to increase the contact patch on the inside shoulder area for vehicles with independent rear suspension. Therefore, mounting the Proxes TQ with the outside sidewall facing inward may decrease performance.
 

A. Start with a cold tire inflation pressure of 17 psi. Adjust the tire inflation pressure up or down in 1-psi increments to achieve the desired results. Use as much pressure as possible for track conditions without causing the tire to slip. Higher inflation pressures will improve reaction time, stability, and rolling resistance.

A. When using the Proxes TQ on the drag strip, always inflate to at least 15 psi. Always remember to re-inflate the tires to the recommended street inflation pressure before leaving the track. Consult your dealer or contact Toyo's consumer relations group for recommendations on inflation pressures for the street.

A. Never use screws to secure the tire to the rim.

A. As a general guideline, if you have experience racing on drag radial tires, we recommend that you not change your burn-out procedure. However, for the very first run, we recommend a burn-out that is slightly longer than normal. Generally, on a cold track in colder ambient temperatures, we recommend a longer burnout, and conversely, a shorter burn-out under warmer conditions. Beware that long burnouts may overheat the compound and shorten the usage life of the tire.

A. Any combination that includes the Proxes Free Rolling Drag Tire can only be used on the track. The Proxes Free Rolling Drag Tire was not designed in conformance with Federal requirements for street tires, and therefore is NOT street-legal.

A. The Proxes TQ is designed for drag racing only and should not be used for other forms of competition.

A. NEVER APPLY ANY TYPE OF CHEMICAL TO THE PROXES TQ. Tread softening or any other type of chemical applied to the Proxes TQ may affect its integrity.
WARNING! FAILURE TO FOLLOW THIS ADVICE MAY RESULT IN CATASTROPHIC FAILURE OF THE TIRE, WHICH COULD LEAD TO LOSS OF VEHICLE CONTROL, AND THE POSSIBILITY OF SERIOUS INJURIES OR DEATH.

A. NEVER REPAIR OR USE A REPAIRED PROXES TQ!
WARNING! FAILURE TO FOLLOW THIS ADVICE MAY RESULT IN CATASTROPHIC FAILURE OF THE TIRE, WHICH COULD LEAD TO LOSS OF VEHICLE CONTROL, AND THE POSSIBILITY OF SERIOUS INJURIES OR DEATH.

WARNING!

As a dual-purpose competition tire, the Proxes TQ is designed with a reduced tread depth and a special tread rubber compound for optimal dry weather traction. Therefore, it is important that you frequently check the available tread depth, because like all competition tires, the Proxes TQ will wear out much sooner and offer less wet weather grip, than regular passenger-car tires. Never use Proxes TQs, or any tires, on the street if they are worn down to the wear indicator bars, i.e., the available tread depth is no more than 2/32nds of an inch. USE EXTREME CAUTION AND REDUCED SPEEDS WHEN DRIVING WITH THE PROXES TQ IN WET CONDITIONS.
