Toyo Choices

Alright, so I am looking at getting new tires in the spring.

Right now I have narrowed it down to the Toyo T1Rs or the Toyo Proxes 4s

I am leaning toward the T1Rs but just the fact that the Proxe 4s are all season really appeals to me.

Currently I have the 4s...so i know their attributes. They are great tires, but I have read tons of great things about the T1Rs....

What do you think would be the best for me and why?

btw, the size I am getting is 235-35-19

Help me out

T1R is more of a performance tire. I see you live in WA (bad weather?) so all season tires would really be the better choice.

If you have the 4s now and you like them I would get another set. Do you get snow or sleet/freezing rain in your area frequently?

If not, you will love the T1R.
