  • Uncompromising Traction and Handling
  • Excellent Anti-Hydroplaning Characteristics
  • Smooth Ride; Minimal Road Noise
  • Unique Flanged Lip Protects Rims
Sumitomo's HTR Z II series tire is an ultra high performance summer tire. The aggressively designed 255/40-17 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 9 Inch 1994-1998 Wheels

  • 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.

    Sumitomo Tires

    I used these in the front of my car. They look awesome and I get tons of compliments, but the traction isn't that great. For the price, I can't complain. I had these on my DD for over 2 years so the tread wear is pretty good. I would just go with Nitto's instead of these. My friends have Nitto's and I can't wait to get some for mine.

    ***** all the way.

    Nothing better than high performance and eye catching wide tires. The tires are north the money, to add more I upgraded to th 275/40/17s in the rear to give my 95 GT an awesome look of attitude. I love these tires and highly recommend to all stand lovers out there in ford country. These tires go great on any mustang no matter what the year, and the price is better than most average. Tires in local stores.

    Great Preformance tire and a great value!

    I previously had 235 Firestone Firehawks in the back and had issues keeping traction in 1st and 2nd gear, these tires hook excellent and look amazing on my FR500s, a must buy for anyone looking for a good tire on a budget of around $100 per tire

    No complains what so Ever

    I got these tires manily because of the great price they were at! I never write reviews for parts that I buy cause i really never have the time too but after how well my car handled in the rain with these tires last night i just had to find the time in my day for a review! Yesterday i got caught in a heavy thunder storm. It was raining harder then i can ever remember while i was on the interstate highway. For all mustang owners we all know that mustangs and wet roads dont mix well but to my surprise these tires held up so well!! Im sure these arent the best tires money can buy but they sure as he** were worth every penny i spend on them and will prob order another pair when im done burning these out!! They have great grip in dry conditions also i might add i have these tires on my stock bullit rims and they fit great better then forceing a 275 on a stock rim in my eyes! I dont know why your still reading this order now you wont regret it

    I've immediately notice a difference in the handling and the smoothness of my 1994 GT. Last week i was at mid-America motorplex race track in Iowa and those tires help me handle all the turns like a dream.

    good summer tires

    These tires have great traction in dry conditions. I can barely peel out any more unless its wet. the wet traction is OK but can sometimes slip out unexpectedly if you take a turn a little hard or press the gas too much. They have a nice tread design and look good on my car. i got them for a great price too.
