Anybody else on the planet own these? I've had mine for 50K miles, good grip and wear, in the San Francisco Bay Area. They are just about expired, on my 1994 Maxima GXE. Are the Dunlop D60/A2's better? Or the Michelin XGT 4H? or should I just order another set of Proxes H4's at about $70. each? Dealers badmouth Toyo, but I have no complaints.

I have the same tires on 95 Max - love them. Do not experiment get the tested ones, it is hard to get 50000 on a set of tires - Proxies are really good

i had Dunlop D60 A2 on my Saturn and they were fine for about 25,000 miles then they lost traction especially in the rain and I got rid of them shortly afterward. I replaced them with Nitto NT 460 which are H speed rated all season performance tires with a 65,000 miles warranty, and affordable price through discounttires.com I have 35,000 miles on them now and they have shown almost no wear. But, if you like your old Toyos then don't fix it if it ain't broke. I also had Toyo Proxes for about 12,000 miles on our old Altima and I loved them but had to trade the car in due to a freak electrical problems

I tried the Toyo's on my '90 Miata but took them off after only a few hundred miles. They were much too stiff and causing great amounts of chassis shake. I then tried Yokohama AVID H4's and had the same experience as far as shake goes. Now using Dunlop D60 A2's and am very happy with the ride and lack of shake. We'll see about wear and such as time goes on.
