Toyo Proxes CF2 review

Showing its age as tyre technology moves on

Like several rivals here, Toyo’s Proxes CF2 has been around for a few years. But while others have remained on the pace, this tyre is in need of the latest wet grip and fuel economy technology. Although it finished mid table in the rolling resistance test, it was a clear step behind the leading performers.

It was closer in the dry and around the handling track, but felt soft in comparison with most of the other designs on test, and needed plenty of lock. The same lack of sharpness was there on the wet track, where you need to wait for the front to bite before accelerating, and the rear was more prone to movement than most. That lack of grip could also be seen in the braking test, where it was over eight metres behind the best.
