Toyo vs Bridgestone

Hey all,

Looking to get new summer wheels and tires this year and I am in a dilemma between two tire choices and was curious on the communities personal opinions/experiences with one or the other or both.

I have narrowed it down to either the Toyo Proxes T1 Sport vs Bridgestone Potenze RE760 Sport.

I was originally going to go with 225x45R17 in the front but after looking closer at the dimensions I think I want to go with 235x45R17 in the front and 265x40R17 in the rear.

225x45R17=25x8.9x17
235x45R17=25.3x9.3x17(like the fact they are the same diameter and a little wider)

265x40R17=25.3x10.4x17

Would love to hear your thoughts on the two tires, I could not find a test done by Tire Rack on the Toyo's nor did I find a good test done with a wide range of tires comparing the two models mixed with others. I will continue going through the forum but figured i'd post my own thread and maybe get a link to one already done or just get your opinions/experiences.

Thank You

P.S. I guess I should tell you a little about the car just in case their are sizing problems I haven't read about yet. 02 325ci completely stock. Was told to keep my 12mm spacers on the rear only to help with the fender gap.

I love toyo. However they are soft so once you start pushing it they wear quickly.
