Toyo Proxes 4 in the snow?

I know they arent going to be anywhere near great but I am looking for a high perforamnce all season tire that can handle a little occasional snow. I really want the Mich Pilot Sport A/S but I dont want to spend 1400 on them. the Proxes will be 900 or so. any thoughts?

1400 for the pilot sport a/s seems high. it was more like 900-1000 when i last checked.

Proxes are trash even in the rain. You would be better off roller skating to your destinations, than riding the proxes. don't get me wrong they are still a great tire in dry conditions, but any wetness forget it!

I disagree...I've got the PX-4s and they're not bad in the rain. I drive aggressively and have never experienced any discomfort with them, even in hard rain.

Are you running them on your TL? They are the best rain tire I have ever had on a car. I have driven on back roads in storms with 2-3 inches of water running over the road and have had no hydroplaning issues at all.

hahahaha i love how they completely avoided your questions and started talking about dry/wet conditions. (Unfortunately, I don't have a set of these tires, or else i'd let you know)

for light snow, i recommend the Yokohama dB S2. for overall all season, for the money i would go for the Falken Ziex 512 ($400 for all 4 @ 17").

Proxes 4 are decent in the snow, depending on the depth of the snow. I had a set on my old car and drove a couple of times in some snow...about 3" and 6-8"...the 3" wasn't bad, but the 6-8" was pushing it...but personally, I wouldn't recommend driving in 6-8" of snow with low profiles of any kind (I never will again...oh the joys of youth). Now that I have the TL, new rule - no driving in snow...work can kiss my @$$ if they want me to come it as it ain't happenin'...the TL's too nice to be driving around in all of that muck, slag, and $hit.

Dude what are you talking about. The Proxes P4 handle just fine in the rain not as good as the T1-S, but they handle just fine. I have both tires for my summer and winter setup. In heavy snow the Proxes P4 are questionable. But over all a great tire.

I have Proxes TPT4s on my Solara and they're great in dry, OK in wet, and AWFUL in snow.
