HTR Z II Summer Tire. The Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II Series Tire is an ultra high performance summer tire. Its aggressive extra wide, arched tread blocks deliver extraordinary performance in either wet or dry conditions, both on and off the track.

Uncompromising Traction and Handling. The HTR Z II's extra wide, arched tread blocks deliver uncompromising racing slick-like dry traction and handling. Dual steel belts with spirally-wrapped Jointless Nylon Band reinforcements deliver high speed stamina and predictable handling, while still minimizing weight and superb uniformity. Single Strand Beads help improve wheel fit and retain rigidity under high stress cornering.

Smooth Ride w/ Minimal Road Noise. In addition to outstanding performance, the HTR Z II Series Tire delivers a smooth ride with minimal road noise. That way you and your passengers can be treated to the sounds that really count, like the growl of your motor, the whine of your supercharger, or the bass thumping from your stereo system!

Unique Flanged Lip for Wheel Protection. The HTR Z II Series Tire also features a unique flanged lip on the lower sidewall, which helps protect your expensive wheels from curb damage while parallel parking.

5 Year Warranty. This Sumitomo Tire comes with a 5-year warranty from the date of purchase. Some limitations do apply. Please see the Full Sumitomo Warranty disclosure for details.

NOTE: This is an ultra high performance summer specific compound and tread tire. Use during the summer and warm temperature months will result in superior traction over & all-season tires. Use during the winter months or in cold temperatures significantly reduces traction and increases stopping distance, as the compound becomes less sticky.

I want to put the free nitrogen in my tires ok. When the tires are low on nitigen can I mix that nitrogen with air . Do I have to fill it up with nitrogen again

Reinel

Helpful (1)
  • You can refill with air without causing any harm, but it will ultimately defeat the purpose and eliminate the benefits of having the nitrogen fill. I'd check your local area to see if there are any places to fill up with nitrogen. Usually some tire shops and similar places may have it available.

I have a set of Saleen 18x9 I have 245/35 on there now. How much bigger can I go?

DevanG

Helpful (0)
  • There are a lot of factors that go with this. Year of car you are running them on, placement of wheel front or back, just to make sure clearance is there to fit them. But for an 18x9 the biggest tire you can safely run that we recommend is 265/35, you could probably squeeze a 275/40 on there but for the most part 265/35 would work great for you!

Answer This Question

It says Summer use, but what should the ambient temperatures be before switching to these? Thanks.

UnkTob

Helpful (0)
  • Hello! As ambient temperatures get colder, typically in the 40-45° Fahrenheit range, summer performance tires lose a noticeable percentage of traction as their tread compound rubber properties change from a pliable elastic to inflexible plastic. The tire industry uses the term "glass transition" to describe the temperature where a summer performance tire's grip/slip performance changes dramatically. In severe cold conditions it can actually cause the tires to crack, so I would say stay above 50* when using Summer Tires.

I have a 2012 v6 mustang found some 18x 7.5 in rims is this size ok for them or what size tire would you recommend

ShawnE

Helpful (0)
  • For that size wheel the best fit tire for your 2012 Mustang would be 235/50R18, however without having all the specs for those wheels we cannot assure proper fitment. Important factors for proper fitment for those wheels would be backspacing and offset. Factory 18 inch wheels are 18x8 with a +44 offset.

    Very happy!

    I really bought these tires for the tread pattern and the wet traction capability. They look good on my new Bullit rims. Still to new to rate performance. So far ride and noise good. A little nervous on the tread wear capability. They have a lower rating than the original BFG's.I got almost 47K on them

    Good Tire For the Money

    I had bought the staggered wheel and tire package from AM with these tires, had to replace a rear one after 1500 miles after I picked up a nice size bolt in the tire, luckily these tires are priced reasonably compared to the name brand tires. These tires have good dry pavement traction and are decent wet pavement. The tires seem to be holding up quite even after a few burnouts here and there:).
