The Toyo Celsius is not what you call a proper winter tire. In fact, Toyo calls it a variable-conditions tire. We all know snow tires are only good for winter driving. The Toyo Celsius begs to differ. It is properly classified as an all-season touring tire. However, it also happens to be qualified for severe snow conditions.
The Hankook Optimo H725 is an economical choice for s standard touring tire. But I have to admit the newer Hankook Kinergy ST H735 offers more features and better attributes. The Kinergy ST is a better touring tire in terms of looks and all-season performance.
So where does the Hankook Optimo H725 fit in? This tire remains an excellent choice for entry-level hatchbacks, compact cars, and small sedans. And that’s about it. But if you have a larger vehicle or a more powerful turbocharged engine, the Optimo H725 will fall short of your expectations.
The Hankook Kinergy ST H735 is primed and ready for 2019! This tire was revealed in 2018 and replaces the Hankook Optimo H727 in the touring category. In some markets, you can still get the Hankook Optimo H727. But if you have a newer car, why place your bets on an older variant when you can get a new and better tire for almost the same price!
Looking to improve the highway comfort and refinement in your pickup truck or SUV? Start with the tires. If your priority is better comfort and a smoother highway ride, you should only look into a proper set of H/T tires.
Highway-terrain tires are designed for all-season driving on smooth roads. These tires also come standard in most new SUVs and pickup trucks. And while most truck owners are looking for an upgrade to all-terrain tires in improving the styling and go-anywhere capabilities of their ride, this is a waste of money if you do a lot of highway driving.
The Falken Wildpeak A/T3W is conceived by combining the rugged performance of all-terrain tires with the refinement of a highway tire. Sounds interesting, right? In this review, I did not focus on the actual off-road performance of the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W. Based on the looks alone, this no doubt one of the toughest and most capable off-road tires you can buy.
Mud tires are the most extreme tires out there. And while the Falken Wildpeak M/T is one of the best, it doesn’t fail to impress in terms of highway performance. Few mud tires are quit on smooth roads, and fewer are comfortable as well.
But with the Falken Wildpeak M/T, the compromises are not that hard to bear. Of course, it is foolish to expect mud tires to ride as smoothly as A/T or highway terrain tires. But there are those that are much easier to bear, albeit at slow to moderate speeds. But you don’t buy mud tires for the creature comforts, in the same way you don’t wear jeans to a wedding, so bear that in mind.
The Falken Pro Touring A/S is better than expected. On dry roads the tire responds pretty well to steering inputs. Traction is more than enough for faster cornering but will shout and scream when pushed to the limit. The same happens if the tire is fitted to a larger or more focused car with a more powerful motor.
If you drive a Mustang or fast sedan such as a BMW M5 or Cadillac CTS-V, the Falken Pro Touring A/S might not be a brilliant choice. However, for moderately quick small cars or sporty crossover vehicles, this tire deserves more than a second look. For the price alone, it is hard to fault the Falken Pro Touring A/S, especially if it grips with tenacity on dry roads.
If you look at Falken’s official USA website, the Falken Pro G4 A/S is classified as an ultra-high performance tire for light trucks, CUVs, and SUVs. This is not surprising at all. In fact, you wouldn’t believe the number of tires sold for sport trucks, small and sporty SUVs, and even sporty crossovers.
But since the Falken Pro G4 A/S is sold in 15” to 20” diameters, it can also cover the needs of compact cars, medium-sized sedans, and even larger luxury vehicles. Like I said, this tire can do it all!
The Toyo Proxes S/T (or sport/truck) is an all-season high-performance tire for sporty pickup trucks and sport-utility vehicles. It offers fantastic looks and excellent all-season performance for a sportier driving experience. But it also happens to be equipped with the right elements to also provide a quieter and more comfortable highway ride.
With the Toyo Proxes S/T, your SUV or pickup will have a wider and sportier stance without compromising on comfort and all-weather performance. In this review, you’ll find out the many attributes of the Toyo Proxes S/T. This will hopefully allow you to make a wiser and more economical decision in choosing a sportier set of tires for your vehicle.
If you know anything about summer tires, comfort, road silence, and wear takes a backseat to prioritize all-season traction. But with the Toyo Proxes 4 Plus, you get relentless grip and better handling when driving fast. But if you want to relax on the way home from the track, this tire is more capable than a comparable touring tire.
With that being said, the Toyo Proxes 4 Plus is a performance tire with the added refinement of a touring tire. If this sounds too good to be true, then wait until we get to the best part: the price. The Toyo Proxes 4 Plus is priced lower than similar offerings from Pirelli, Michelin, Goodyear, and Bridgestone.
