Toyo Proxes A18A Tires
Toyo Proxes A18A tires are touring tires for sedans and coupes. These tires are original equipment (OE) on the 2004 - 2012 Mazda3 and the 2009 - 2012 Mazda5. Toyo engineers focused on low road noise, ride comfort, and traction when they designed the Proxes A18A. These tires offer a combination of safety and performance features that suit commuters and family vehicles well.
Technology & Benefits of Toyo Proxes A18A Tires
Traction on Wet Pavement
Toyo Proxes A18A tires have 4 tread grooves that drain water from underneath the tires. These grooves act like pipes that remove the water, so your tires stay in solid contact with the road. They work the best when your tires have more tread left on them. When tires wear down to close to the legal limit of 2/32" inch of remaining tread, it takes a vehicle up to 378 feet to stop in the rain. Compare that to 195 feet when the tires are close to new, and it's easy to see why increased tread means increased safety.
The same tread patterns that keep you safe while you drive in the rain can also cause noise and vibration. Not to worry here! Toyo engineers crafted these tires to cut down on noise and vibration, so you can enjoy your drive.
Low Rolling Resistance
Buying low rolling resistance tires can help maximize your vehicle's fuel efficiency. Boost your mileage per gallon of fuel by keeping your tires properly inflated. The U.S. Department of Energy says that you can improve your fuel economy by up to 3%, or $0.11 per gallon, just by following your automaker's tire pressure recommendation.
