RICHMOND, British Columbia (June 9, 2010)—Toyo Tire Canada Inc. said its Proxes T1 A0 performance tire has been selected as an original equipment fitment for the 2010 Audi S6 sedan.
The Proxes tire will be available for the Audi S6 in size 265/35ZR19 98Y. It features an asymmetric tread design and a new compound that Toyo said provides enhanced braking and cornering capabilities. Wide outside shoulder blocks provide improved dry performance, while three wide grooves on the inner and middle sections of the tread enable water evacuation. A performance-oriented construction and rib-based tread design generate high-speed stability and responsive handling, according to the tire maker.
Toyo said the luxury-oriented Audi S6 with Toyo Proxes T1 A0 will be available in the North American, European and Asian markets.
