Description
More Details More Details More Details

Sumitomo's 245/45-17 HTR + series tire is an ultra-high performance, all-season radial tire.

Optimizes grip and control. Sumitomo's ultra high performance, all season tread compound gives you better grip, traction, and driving control regardless of the season.


Maximizes water dispersion. Independent tread blocks with open shoulder grooves work to maximize water dispersion and all season grip. Reverse Pattern Siping provides multiple biting edges for greater wet grip and all season traction.


Excellent anti-hydroplaning characteristics. Dual steel belts with spirally-wrapped jointless nylon band reinforcements deliver high-speed stamina and predictable handling, while still minimizing weight and right uniformity. Anti-Hydroplaning properties are enhanced by four wide circumferential curvilinear grooves.


Designed to protect expensive rims. A wheel flange guard on the tire helps to protect your rims from curb scuffing damage.

  • Non-Directional tread design
  • Four, Wide, Deep Circumferential Grooves
  • Non-Directional Tread Pattern Allows tire rotation without the complexities of directional tires

Great price, great tire!

I just installed these tires in early November 2008. My 96 GT is lowered about an inch and a half, so my previous worn tires made my ride extremely bumpy. Going over railroad tracks was like driving

    Good in slush even with 3.73's!!

    January 16, 2010

    ok so i got these tires installed a week ago and since i have been able to drive then in all 3 major conditions up here in Pittsburgh. I had heavy snow and slush the first day i had them. Did not feel squirmish even at freeway speeds. Wet traction is pretty good too. They help the push the stock suspension normally has and actually makes it around turns really well. Dry traction is far better than i would have expected from an all season. Doesnt break loose without some good effort. Theres one very slippery, even when dry, spot on my way home and this tire holds wonderfully. Even in the wet there too. Id recommend to anyone, especially for the price. I drive a 97 GT 5 Speed by the way with 3.73's.

    Smitomo HTR tires

    January 05, 2010

    I decided to go for the package deal with the white 17x9 Bullitt wheels and had the Sumitomo HTR 245/45-17 all season tires mounted and balanced. I like how it looks on my 1997 Mustang convertible. My only concern is that with 9 inch rims the 245mm width of the tire leaves the rims of the wheel exposed more than I would have liked (in other words the tire does not buldge out from the rim) so I suspect that I will really have to be careful near curbs. Otherwise the price is hard to beat and free shipping really sweetens the deal! Speaking of shipping, all the packages were very well wrapped/boxed (including extra cardboard inside each box) to prevent damage while being shipped.

    Great price, great tire!

    November 05, 2008

    I just installed these tires in early November 2008. My 96 GT is lowered about an inch and a half, so my previous worn tires made my ride extremely bumpy. Going over railroad tracks was like driving a rock with no shocks. But wow, when I drove these Sumitomos it was SO SMOOTH! The traction is great and the treads were higher than I expected. The railroad tracks which once rattled my car are now so quiet when I drive over them. I have not tried these in the snow or on the ice yet. I recommend this tire for its high quality and great price! I submitted some pictures to help anyone looking to buy these.

    Excellent tire

    October 17, 2008

    Purchased this tire in September of 2008. I never had any experience with Sumitomo at all, and was very skeptical at first. After talking with people here, they were very helpful with my decision, so I purchased these and installed them. Man, what a difference!!! Traction is very good, softer sidewall for better ride & comfort, used little weight when balancing, small change in handling, very little change in rain performance, and very, very low road noise. The treadwear is higher, so I expect to get 30,000 out of these. Proper air pressure, as well as alignments, is a must for any tire. So, the way I see it, goodbye directional tires, and hello high performance all seasons. Have not had any experience with snow or ice yet, but will update later. I am very pleased with this tire and am recommending these to the guys at work with GTs, (even they cant believe how this tire performs, rides, and handles). Anyone who wants a smooth ride, to lose the vibrations, sacrifice little handling, and lose all the road noise, then this tire is for you. now I can finally enjoy the MACH 1,000 watt stereo, regardless if the top is down or not. Very, very pleased, and highly recommend. Very good tire for the bucks!!!
