Description
Sumitomo's HTR Z II series tire is an ultra high performance summer tire. The aggressively designed 245/45ZR17 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: 17 x 8 Inch 1979 to 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.

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

  • 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.

Will These Work With 17x9's? Bought 4 of these awhile back and they are great! Looking to get new wheels and was trying to reuse these tires. Will they work with 17x9 wheels?

  • Yes they will. Many tire company's will recommend a little bit wider but I've seen plenty of 245/45-17's on a 9" wide rim

    These tires are great for daily driving and provide great traction dry and wet. The only bad thing about the is they dont hold up to th abuse of autocross racing. Besides autocross these tires are a great buy. 15000 to 25000 miles on them depending on how you drive.

I searched online, got quotes from all of the local tire shops, and finally went to the site I should've gone to first... AmericanMuscle!! Good dry traction (it's no Drag Radial, but gets the job done) awesome wet traction and smooth ride. All around great tire.

    Sumioto HTR Z II 96 GT

    I was kinda curious at first because they were so cheap.. but they are amazing compared to the $250 tires I had on my stang before! Super grippy! Amazing traction in dry. Pretty good traction in wet. And for the price I can burn tires all I want! I LOVE the sound they make when I'm burning them down at a stop light!!

    Nice Rubber

    I have had these tires for a few weeks now and they ride nice and grip very well. The bead on the tire to protect the rim is a nice touch as well. I have to give props to AM for the price and quick delivery.
