    After doing my research on what tire I wanted to run, I decided on the Toyo Proxes T1 Sport. I got 265/30/19 front and 285/30/19 rear. I wanted a tire that would work great for daily driving and weekend track days. The tires that were on my Boss were the Pirelli P Zero Corsa R compounds. My car had really bad tramming issues with those tires. It would pull really hard over grooves and ridges in the road. Almost felt unsafe to me. After Mounting and balancing the Toyo T1 Sports this issue was gone and I was super excited. I drove around and did a proper break in on the new tires and I can not believe how nice these tires are. They are quiet, have a great sidewall, And the dual compound is great. The outside of the tire is softer and has larger contact patches. So when you are driving a little bit more aggressive in the canyons or on track this really comes into play. My Boss makes about 450-460RWHP and traction is not an issue with these tires it grips 1-2-3-4 gear no problem. I wanted to share my thoughts on these tires because some people don't have a spare set of wheels for a designated track tire. I highly recommend the Toyo T1 Sport if you want a great tire for daily driving and track days. If you have any questions feel free to ask me or PM me. I have attached a link to the tires for you to see.

    Good luck finding a 35 series in anything bigger than a 275.

    How hard do you take off with them and still get traction?

    I haven't launched the car super hard. but if I am rolling and I punch it they stick and do not Spin. I might go out to Irwindale this week to see how they do at the strip.

    Michelin PSS are the only tires I've found in a 40 series 285. Sucks...

    The largest they go is 285. I got mine from a local retailer for a good price.

    do they compare with others in the price range? What is the avg price? about 275?

    Im looking for the best straight line traction but decent longevity. obviousl sacarafice some tread life for traction. Really need something thats gonna hook off the line alot better

    They perform very well. You can get them for about 250 to 300 a tire. Best bet is to do a google search.
