toyo proxes vs. Diamaris

I'm looking to purchase tires for the X. I was leaning toward Diamaris, but my local tire dealer is offering some pretty attractive pricing on the toyo proxes s/t. A set of 275/40zr/20's and 315/35zr/20's are on sale for $773.00. ( price does not include mount/balance ) I haven't heard much negative on the proxes other than they were a little noisey. Anyone think the Diamaris are worth the extra $$?? It would be nice to save a few dollars to put toward other mod's.

You should try searching. I think there's a certain brand that folks were complaining about not lasting very long, but I'm not sure if it was the Toyo's. I have the Diamaris (19s) and love 'em.

Get the Diamaris, very good tire..many people experience the Toyo's getting loud when they wear. In Japan, where Toyo is domestic, it is considered to be a junk brand.

Diamaris vs. Toyo

When looking at X5's I tested a 2003 with new Toyo Proxes. they were incredibly noisy at in town street speed, so bad I rejected an otherwise clean car.
Now I have bought an 04 with diamaris with about 1/3 of the tread worn. they are very quiet.

I decided on the Diamaris, it's the tire I wanted in the first place.

I need new tires and tried to get the Diamaris but my dealer told me they were discontinued. WTF. Should I get the replacement model?

Did you try other sources? They may have been discontinued for new BMWs but I think you can still get them. Have you tried our sponsor - The Tire Rack?

you may also want to try the new Michie Latitudes. They are rated just as high as the Diamaris
