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.

Awful quality. I've bought these tires brand new and had about 19 miles on them. They showed full tread separation on the way home.
