HTR Z Series Performance is Sumitomo's Ultra High Performance summer tire. The aggressively designed

245/45ZR17 tire delivers confident performance in either wet or dry conditions, both on and off the track.

Superb Wet Grip & Traction. Sumitomo HTR Z Performance Tires feature a directional offset V tread pattern that literally plows water out of the way.

Excellent Anti-hydroplaning. Four, deep, wide circumferential tread grooves provide excellent anti-hydroplaning performance.

Enhanced Steering Response. Large angular shoulder blocks provide enhanced steering response and overall dry grip. A solid center rib helps delivers directional stability even in the most heavily grooved highways.

Sidewall Stiffeners. Improved steering response and overall handling without sacrificing ride comfort. In addition to excellent performance, the HTR Z series tires deliver a smooth ride with minimal road noise.

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.

Best Fit: 17 x 8 Inch 1979 to 2004 Wheels

  • Excellent handling characteristics at high speeds, and superb wet and dry traction
  • Triple Tread Radius Provides optimum performance footprint for maximum traction
  • Center Rib Enhances straight-line stability

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 just bought my second set of these tires, and I would buy them again. By far the best tires I have ever owned for the money. Great traction and ride comfort as well as good looks. You definitely could spent more and get less. For a high performance tire they delivered respectable tread life, I got over 20,000 miles from my last set.

    Good tire, great value.

    I have to say, this is a good tire. and web price is brought into the equation the HTR becomes a GREAT tire. I have these in the rear if my '96 GT vert. Laying down all 342lbs. Of torque is no longer a problem at the lights, rarely do I spin them but when I do they put on a show that's almost unfair, lots of smoke, little wear. They ride smooth and quite, very solid through the turns. Much better than my old coopers that cist 3x as much per tire. As far as rain goes, they're great. I can easily do 75 in heavy rain they do "plow" through the rain. 2months in and haven't hydroplanned yet.

    Sumitomo Tires

    I was a little unsure of these tires when I first bought them. However after driving them on one of the curviest roads in my area I am completely satisfied. They hug the road tight and corner better than any tire I have ever driven on. I would highly reccomend then to anyone without hesitation.

    Great Tires!

    I have had the Sumitomo HTR-Z 245/45R17\'s on for about 2,000 miles now and I am completely satisfied. They were an upgrade for me from the stock 16\" tires. They hug the road and handling is amazing with these tires, both on dry roads and wet. I highly recommend these tires and I highly recommend American Muscle!

    Great Tire

    I ordered a tire/wheel package for my '02 and did the installion on Thursday night. Was forced to panic stop for a dear on Friday morning from 55 mph on a wet road. Had no problem stopping; never lost traction, and handling was great. I'm sold.

    HTR Z's

    I like them. This size works best on the 17x8 rims. My suspension is stock and I tried 17x9 on the front with Kumo 245/45-17's and it was a little hard to control the road walk. After bending a left front rim I returned to the 17x8 from AM and this tire. Very pleased with steering control. Seems like nothing was wrong anymore. No Road Walk. Sweet. And the rear has 17x 10.5 HTR Z 315.35-17's . Good combo on my 2000 GT Stang.

    With Great Speed, Comes Great Grip...

    Alright, so Basically if you are looking for a awesome deal on awesome street tires, here you go! Very affordable, look amazing, and handle as good as they look. They tread water well, and are smooth on normal roads. I live in Ohio, and there is of course, plenty of snow in the winter seasons. These tires actually do very well in the snow too! Even before installing my LSD, I was tearing through snow that I spun out in with Fuzions the year before! You want good tires for cheap? Buy these... no wait, better yet... buy 4 ;D

    Sumitomo HTR Z tires

    These tires are probably the best bang for your buck anywhere! They are great, I only have bold on's on my '02 GT 5-speed and they hook real well. My only problem with the tires are they squeal really loud... And I'm running a full exhaust, the car isn't not quiet but the tires scream! I guess that's a good thing :)

    Best tire deal that I have seen. For my money Top Notch

    Great ride and very quite I can feel the difference. A very comfortable ride grabs the road at all the right times, Tires are very cool to the eye and help set my car above the rest. Road handling is the best I have felt on my car and makes my ride excellent.

    Good for the price.

    These tires are not made for cornering or at the track, but you cant beat the price at all. I would recommend these to the daily driver but thats about it.
