Performance Tires

I would like to replace the tires on my 1990 Toyota Supra GT. So far I have checked out Toyo Tires' Proxes 4 Plus. Should I go for it?

Depends on what you want for your car.

Those look like a decent performance all season tire but a dedicated summer tire will provide more grip.

Are you daily driving It?
And are you on stock tims? Because I am not sure they are even available in the factory size.

I’m partial to Michelin and BFG myself, I’ve ran both Michelin Pilot Sport PS2’s (high end) and BFG gForce Sports (mid range) and I was extremely happy with both. I ran the BFGs on factory rims. Good bang for your buck, grippy. Both tires are summer only tires. I’m planning to purchase another set of BFG’s and Michelin’s on both my mk2 and mk3 respectively soon. If you wait for the spring usually they put on slight discounts on the tires, $70-$100 off, usually mail in rebates or whatever...KalTire matches Costco pricing FYI so you might not find better prices anywhere else on those brands specifically. Maybe you can, I dunno.

Toyos are fine... I am guessing your talking factory rims. I have Toyos on my Sienna and like them better then Good Years. However... there is a difference depending on winter/summer/all season/specialty. If your gonna burn them off... go cheap as opposed to expensive. If your going winter, I would do something like the Michelin's. And for spring/summer good traction (overall), I would go Michelin or Pirelli. Cheaper brands are perfectly fine and even used are fine on the stock wheels (I have used Continental Contipro's on mine as "spares).

The only problem with the stock wheel is that the turbo Supra breaks traction too easily.

Iv only ever bought stock rims with included tires and jusr sold the rims when i was done with the rubber. Id start in the winter hunting saw blades with decent tread and then in the summer id burn them off. Now i use 235/40 r17 s drive yokahama
