New Proxes CF2 has been created to take advantage of the latest materials, structures and tread pattern design in order to guarantee a high level of safety, durability, savings, and comfort. Proxes CF2 benefits from an improved tyre construction and a new full-silica tread compound. The new tyre has a longer tyre life, better wet performance and lower fuel consumption. Proxes CF2 is the right choice for drivers looking for a high performing and safe tyre for medium and high powered cars.
Super Active Polymer Compound Improved Rolling Resistance performance Improved mileage
Wider Main Grooves Excellent wet braking (Grade B) Excellent water clearance Enhanced aquaplaning resistance
Optimised Pattern Stiffness Low rolling resistance Increased mileage Improved wet and dry braking
Shoulder Rib Block Reduced noise
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

09.05.2022 from duka slipping on dry land at fast start, bad in the rain, feeling of driving in the clouds, poor handling
01.05.2022 from Viktor Tires have a nice grip, they hold the car nice on the road during the sharp turns. I am happy with the fuel consumption as well. Over all it's a pretty solid Tires.
28.02.2021 from Richard Compared to the factory fit Continentals these seem so much quieter and gives slightly more comfortable drive. Can't really say if better grip wise as Vitara not. sports car but no problems so far.
27.01.2021 from troy Driving around london and few trips to surrey in both wet and dry conditions the the tyres handle conditions pretty well.
