Sumitomo's HTR Z III. Are you looking for an excellent max performance summer tire at a friendly price? If so, the Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z III is your Tire. The aggressively designed HTR Z III delivers extraordinary performance in both wet or dry conditions, on and off the track.

Innovative Tread Design. The Sumitomo HTR Z III is the perfect summer performance tire for any Mustang. With an asymmetric 5-rib directional tread pattern, reinforced construction, and innovative traction features, the HTR Z III will provide uncompromised handling. Additional features include large outboard shoulders and intermediate tread blocks along with continuous center and inboard intermediate ribs to provide white-knuckle handling.

Summer Performance Compound. Sumitomo's HTR Z III Tires feature a unique compound that is specifically designed for track and performance applications. The silica-enhanced tread compound provides excellent dry traction making the HTR Z III the "go-fast" rubber your Mustang needs to stick to the track.

Excellent Wet Traction. Long lateral grooves of the HTR Z III evacuate water from the center of the footprint, where four straight, wide grooves further heighten drainage for improved wet performance. A 3-D wave wall increases drainage capabilities and reinforces center rib stability, while siped tie-bars reinforce block rigidity for control and enhance wet traction.

Smooth Ride; Minimal Noise. In addition to outstanding performance, HTR Z III Series Tires deliver 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 Mach 1000 stereo system!

5 Year Warranty. The Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z III 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.

Application. The Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z III Tire is designed for use on 1979-2017 Mustangs. Please choose your size from the ordering options above. Sold individually.

NOTE: These are ultra high performance summer specific compound and tread tires. Use during the summer and warm temperature months will result in superior traction over "all season" tires. Use during the winter months/cold temperatures significantly reduces traction and increases stopping distance as the compound becomes less sticky.

I have a 2008 Mustang GT, it has 235/50/18 size tires on it now, I would like a lower profile and a wider tire, what size can I upgrade to, without them causing any problems?

LarryS

  • Thank you for your question. To eliminate any possible problems that could be causes by running a wider tire or one with less sidewall profile on your stock wheels, we would recommend plus sizing your wheels. The most important thing when looking to change your wheel and tire specs is to try and maintain the overall diameter of the original set. Your 235/50R18 is 27.3 inches. Decreasing the profile of the tire on your 18 wheel will cause your speedometer to read the incorrect speed. Increasing the width of the tire without changing to a wider wheel will cause uneven tread wear on the tread wearing faster in the center. You can find our wheel and tire guide in the link below for our recommended sizes. 2005-2012 Wheel & Tire Fitment: http://www.americanmuscle.com/05-09-tire-sizes.html

I have to replace the front tires on my 2015 due to alignment problem. The back tires are P-zero neros - 275/40/19. I want to put the HTR Z III on the front. Would this be advisable from a safety/handling perspective?

    For the price you pay for these tires I couldn't have asked for a better set. This is my second set of HTR Z III I have put on my stang. The first set didn't last as long as I thought, but they do go through some abuse being on my 5.0. I did like them enough to buy them a second time though.

    Oredered for a spare tire

    Tire arrived mounted to the 20x8.5 Magnetic wheel that I ordered with it. Tire looks good and gets good reviews. So lets hope I dont need it but if I do I have a real spare as opposed to the wonderful Mobility Kit which is a joke. American Muscle the service, product and price is great. I'm sold. And happy to have a real spare tire, I also purchase a compact 2 ton floor jack that I store in the trunk for use if I have a flat. Thanks

    Great Tires For The Price

    I've purchased six of these tires and I have yet to have a bad experience with them. I just replaced my back tires with new ones but the pair lasted around 20,000 miles with the occasional burnout here and there. These tires have excellent grip and are great when driving fast and going around curves. These tires have excellent wet traction and I never hydroplaned with them. I have not tried the Nittos but the amount you save should be enough to persuade you to buy them. My car is a daily driver and the amount of road noise is very minimal. I highly recommend these tires to anyone who are stuck in between the Nittos and the Sumitomos.

    Review from Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z III Tire - 245/45R19 (05-17 All)

    Great Upgrade!

    I put together a staggered black Magnetic style wheel package with these tires. Previously I came from the HTR Z II's on Bullett wheels. Those were a bit noisy and became even noisier after some wear. These newer generation HTR Z III's are awesome! They are MUCH quieter than the II's and they STICK better (275/40-19's on rear)! After I installed my wheels I played around a bit and went into sport mode and hit it from a stop with some 'spirit'. Where the II's spun fairly easily ( I have a Cobra Jet setup :) ) I was a bit more hard pressed to get these III's to break and stay spinning; they actually hooked almost immediately (was a hot day too). Pretty impressed for sure at this price point for a performance tire!

    Review from Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z III Tire - 285/30R20 (05-17 All)

    Great tire for the price

    So far I have been very happy with these tires. I was not looking for an all out performance tire, just something for summer on my daily driver. The ride quality is surprisingly good considering the aspect ratio. So far they are very quiet as well. I have them on 10" wide AMR wheels and to me they look a little small, not sure if it needs more sidewall or to be a little wider. Wet traction leaves something to be desired compared to the factory all-season tires, but I guess that is to be expected on a high performance summer only tire. All an all you would have a very hard time beating them for the price.

    Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z III on 2013 5.0 Turbo

    What a great tire for the stang. I have a 2013 5.0 with a hellion single turbo kit. I was having a hard time hooking up with my stock tires. Man what a improvement to both grip and ride feel. I no longer loose traction like before. I went with 20 inch American Muscle rims and offset tires 285 in the rear. Wont be disappointed for the price few will rival these tires.

    GREAT TIRE all around!

    I went with these because research showed they would have a good tread life compared to the Nitto's. I have not like either set of Perelli's that came with my Mustangs so gave these a try. They are great traction in dry weather, very good traction in wet weather... I never really slip unless heavy on accelerator in heavy rain. I even took these to the track and had very good traction on 1/4 mile runs. Very please with these tires especially for the price. Got the 20" AMR's with them as well and they are really good looking wheels

    Pretty good tire and the price isn't bad. They are definitely stickier in dry conditions than my factory Pirelli's. A little more prone to hydroplaning in really wet conditions but easily compensated with some common sense driving.
