    Toyo Proxes drag radial, who's running them?

    Anybody running, use to run, or know someone running the Toyo Proxes TQ drag radial? I've been thinking about getting some 275/40/17's but I want to know how they do.

    I swap between the Mickeys and stock tires depending on what I'm doing.

    Then again the 02 isn't my DD...

    I would do that if I came across a pair of ZR1's I could put MT's on I'd swap them back and forth then. Or get a pair of stock snowflakes to throw on

    Oh nice. I'll only be able to run a 275. The next up from that for a 17" rim is a 315 and I cant squeeze that on a 9.5 wide rim. How long do you think that treads going to last driving on the street?

    i'm currently running 275 16 proxies..........I love em', they hook up nicely for me every time no matter what gear, speed, or rpm I get on it. They're also great in the rain if your worried about that. They're basically street tires good on the strip, unlike mickey's which are the other way around. I would venture to say that they're basically equivalent to 555Rs. Plus I love the way they look
