Hi Tom S.

I just upgraded from a 17inch wheel and tire, to an 18 inch and purchased a set of the TOYO Proxes 4, 240/40/18 for my new E60 530i last week from Kauffman Tire Company in Atlanta, GA for $750.00 installed and ROAD FORCED & also SONAR balanced on my new Parallel M Replica Wheels that I purchased from Nathan, at: The Wheel Exchange http://thewheelexchange.com/ for $600.00. :D

It is really to soon to tell you their the "latest and greatest", yet, (LOL), but after one week I am impressed in the smooth ride, cornering and handling, and most of all: NO ROAD NOISE on dry payment, I have not taken my Bimmer in the rain yet, but that day shall come, soon. :bawling:

I am not a fast driver, but I take 45MPH highway curves much faster at times than that speed, and the curves are pretty steep to take faster than the posted speed of: 45mph in most cars, without a little tire squealing, and bad handling from other cars, but this is a Chris Bangle 5 series that handles well anyway, with just the stock 17inch BMW Wheels and the Continental tires, but these upgraded 18inch TOYO Proxes 4's, the handling is much better. :angel:

I was a professional driver in my younger days, and I really cannot give the TOYO' Proxes 4s an accurate rating, but after a week of running them on my 530i, on a scale 1 to 10, and 10 the highest, I give them a 10+ at this time. :thumbup:

If they keep this excellent ride and handling up, I will buy another set of these TOYO Proxes 4's when these wear out.

I am very hard to please with cars, tires and wheels, and I wish you the best on your tires, and I hope my posting can help you on the TOYO Proxes 4's! :drive:

Sincerely,
Presley348 :smokin:
