Pretty good, really....
Despite many reviews here stating that these tyres have poor grip in the wet, I have found them to be pretty good, really.
I live in Far North Queensland, one of the wettest areas in Australia, with 2500mm average rainfall per year.
Fitted to my 07 Forester, I have never lost traction or spun the wheels EVER....
I don't speed, but I'm a "nippy" driver.
And I got 60,000 km from the last set...!
You can't ask for much more than that.
Just replaced them with another full set from Tyrepower in Cairns, who give exceptional service.
Purchased at Tyrepower.
Very slippery on wet roads
Replaced 2 rear tyres on a ford falcon 2010 fg , have to agree with a previous poster here very slippery on wet roads. Trade off hopefully high mileage with harder compound . Looking forward to summer
Purchased in July 2020 at Grand Tyre & Service Center for $197.00.
Wears well over time
Have these on a Nissan Dualists and They seem to be lasting and wearing better than than others I’ve used (pirelli, Dunlop, Goodyear). They were a bit cheaper which made me a bit weary, but pulled the trigger based on reviews and have not been disappointed.
Purchased in May 2019.
Great tyre, smooth ride.
Good price! Got these for my Toyota CHR 4WD. Ive done 10000 kms now on them.
Bought 4, paid for 3 got 1 free from TyrePower. Was a bit worried when I read a couple of previous reviews about the tyres not being good in the wet, but Ive had no issues - thats probably due to being a safe driver & not doing stupid or unnecessary things like accelerating hard, speeding, taking corners too hard or too fast. I always drive in Sport Mode in the wet, for added safety! and always slow down anyway, driving as safe as I can to the conditions - tyres will ...

Great Mainstream Tyres
My previous set of tyres were Toyo TEO Plus and they served me really well - over 80,000km on all sorts of roads without a single failure of any kind. So when the time came, I picked up a set of 4 C100+ and they perform as well as expected.
By now, I have 7,000km on them and they are quite and forgiving. The road feeling can be a bit vague compared to some premium tyres. But for the everyday drive, I cannot flaw it. It has been raining heavily for months in my area and I am happy to report they perform really well in the wet even when I had to occasionally drive over standing waters on the motorway. TyrePower sometime has them on sale, which makes them a cracking deal.
Purchased in April 2019 at Tyrepower for $128.00.
Very good on dry road and very sliping on wet road special on roundabout!!!
Not there food for the price I was using goodyear and the garage did the redo put 4 new tyres of this brand! i didn’t like at all, but no choose now to change soon!
Purchased in March 2019 at Tens Machines Australia for $150.00.

Great grip, reasonable price!
I purchased these tyres about 2 months ago and so far have been really impressed with the overall handing and performance of these tyres. Have no sound, have great grip on asphalt, gravel and in the wet and so far seem to be very durable. I would recommend these tyres!
Good in dry, average in wet
I purchased these tyres 6 months ago. They were good value and so far are wearing really well. I maintain the pressure at 36psi and I do not use the car at the track. It is my daily drive and I do open road driving on a variety of road surfaces and speeds. They give good feedback, no over or understeer in the dry, pretty good.
Okay now what are they like in the wet. Well the first time I drove in the wet was after a long dry spell so when the car undesteered and slid at the front, I thought it was just oil/rubbish being washed out of the road....
Great value for money
Bought these from Tyresales.com.au and had them fitted by a local car dealer. Excellent value for money, great handling and ride comfort. Good on fuel. I regularly check my tyre pressures and keep them at the right pressures. had em for a year and they have barely worn at all. Highly recommended!
Great tyre with a very quiet and soft ride, good grip and handling on my car.
Very happy so far with my choice, and they are great value for money as got 4 for the price of 3 at Tyrepower. Much better than the Yokohama’s that are recommended for my car.
The ideal tyre
After using 2 models of tyres from the Toyo brand being the NanoEnergy 3 and the Proxes C100, I had no problems performance wise and then were replaced after nearly 60,000 kilometres with a full set of Proxes C100+ tyres.
About the tyres, they hold up well, grip well on dry and wet conditions like the previous tyres and so far so good, they wear well. I have so far travelled 5,000 kilometres without trouble.
For the likes of my car, I find them ideal as touring tyres. I would have gone for Dunlop SP Touring tyres but I stuck with Toyo because they're good enough for my needs.
Highly recommended. And I took advantage of the buy 3 get one free offer that was on at the time of replacement.
Good Value for money
A friend mechanic recommended me those tyres. I had 4 brand new ones installed on my Kluger. Quiet and keep the vehicle stable in dry, very hot and wet conditions. Noticed a slight fuel efficiency too. Make sure you rotate them every year to ensure longevity - will save you heaps in long run.
These tyres have been on my car for almost 2 years they still look new after 30000 kms. I believe I get good economy from the vehicle and it handles well. Also the road noise is minimal compared to the tyres on the car before. I would buy these tyres again for my car
We recently purchased new tyres for our 05 R8, toyo proxes, absolutely delighted with the quality and performance.
Will be sticking with Toyo tyres in the future, priced extremely well, and overall quality is excellent.
Just about to put them in the work van will let you know how they go...
Longer Term Review
I bought a set of these to replace a set of Dunlops on my Prelude. Much better comfort wise and handling is neutral. Wearing alright. Only bought these because have had very positive experiences with Toyos in the past. However these are made in China now so not sure what the quality will be like long term. 5000ks so far and no real faults as long as car is aligned properly and pressures are adjusted accordingly. 10,000Ks in tires are rubbish in the wet! Regardless of tire pressure adjustment, car gets slippery. Please be aware.
Questions & Answers
Toyo tyres which are made from Japan having the same quality that made in China or not.. ?
Question to Toyo tyre reps. It seems from some of the reviews that the tyres are not good in the wet conditions. I was looking at fitting a set to a 2015 Subaru Liberty sedan, but from some of the negative reviews I am now not so sure.
I am not a Toyo rep, I bought them for my GT86. Yes, in the wet they do lose traction. They also break away under acceleration of you do not apply power very smoothly. In the dry, no issues at all and they have good wear quality.
From your reply and others I will look at other brand options.
