Sumitomo HTR Z III



Description

These third-generation, high-tech radials give outstanding high-speed handling with sticky traction on dry and wet roads. Not for freezing temperatures, snow or ice.

  • Sporty performance handling
  • Wet and dry grip
  • Y rated for high-speed driving

A sophisticated asymmetric tread pattern promotes both straight-line stability and tight cornering. Wide grooves drain the footprint for solid grip on wet pavement. Wide, steel belts and high-tension casing plies give the tire stiffness to stay true in corners and on the straight.
