I am planning to replace the tires on my 1995 Mitsubishi Galant VR4. So far, I have only checked out Toyo Tires Proxes 1. Is anyone familiar with it?

Others may have better words, but talking tires is like talking oils... Opinions vary....
A '95 VR4 has me stumped in the first place. Imported from Canada I assume? What's the rim size?

For tires, it's best to know your driving preferences. Is this your daily driver? Family mover? Occasional track car?
Are you aggressive in corners, or just a normal point A to point B user?

In my personal experience, I've never used any of Toyos compounds as there were always options that fit my driving style better.

Canada did not get Mitsubishi products "as new and sold by Mitsubishi dealers", until the year 2000; in other words we did not have Mitsubishi dealers until the year 2000.

Wow... Here I am near the Canadian border, and never knew that....
Is the OP post on a '95 VR4 a misprint? Maybe a direct import from another country?

In Canada they can import cars from Japan I believe when they are only 10 years old, so Japan imports are popular.
