Description
Sumitomo's HTR Z II series tire is an ultra high performance summer tire. The aggressively designed 245/40-18 delivers extraordinary performance in either wet or dry conditions, on and off the track.

Uncompromising traction and handling. The HTR ZII'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 right uniformity. Single Strand Beads help improve wheel fit and retain rigidity under high stress cornering.

Excellent anti-hydroplaning characteristics. Multi Directional Water Channels push water to the sides and away from the center providing excellent hydroplaning resistance and road grip in adverse weather conditions.

Smooth ride; minimal road noise. In addition to outstanding performance, the HTR Z II 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!

Unique flanged lip protects rims. The HTR Z II Series Tires also feature a unique flanged lip on the lower sidewall that helps protect your expensive rims 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.

Best Fit: 18 x 9 Inch 1994-2004 Wheels

Features:
  • Wide block shoulder stabilizers strengthen shoulders for maximum dry grip and greater, more predictable, steering response for cornering control.
  • Full-width, high density steel belts promote stable, predictable handling, smooth ride, even tread wear, and superb uniformity .
  • PSP Technology optimizes overall casing durability throughout the life of the tire

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.

    Just got these tires. First off shipping took only 3 days (excluding weekend) which was awesome. Second these tires are so sick. Very grippy in warm-dry conditions, and not to bad in the water. The thing is the more torque you have the harder it's going to be to stay planted in the wet.. so I wasn't expecting miracles, but overall I'd say they are WELLLLLLL worth the price.

    Great tire for the summer

    I ordered these tires as a part of a wheel and tire kit. I also opted for the free nitrogen fill and mounting and balancing before shipment. I installed them early spring and they have been excellent tired so far. The only negative is they are not as great with wet traction, however I don't find this a problem as most of us mustang owners aren't driving in the rain. Plenty of grip on a dry day and delivers a smooth ride.

    Great for the price

    Perfect tire for the average consumer/ driver. These tires are great for dry non-racing weather. Traction grips for the most part and looks great at the same time. However do not try to launch with any kind of wetness because you'll be left spinning at the stop line! Overall great tire, and as always super fast shipping! Thanks AM

    Best Purchase "EVER"

    My recent Sumitomo Tire purchase is by far the "BEST" investment I've made to date in improving my 2000 Mustang GT performance of anything I've purchased for car enhancements. The tires exceeded my expectation through appearance, profile, tread design, sure handling and above all grip. Anyone looking for a quality tire product should DEFINITELY Sumitomo.

    Tires

    I love these tires! they look good, ride good, feel good. The only part i don't like is the traction, when its dry its not so bad just mainly when its wet outside...you slide with any acceleration.
