Description
HTR Z III. Sumitomo's HTR Z III series tire is an ultra high performance summer tire. The aggressively designed 235/50-18 delivers extraordinary performance in either wet or dry conditions, on and off the track.

Uncompromising traction and handling. The HTR ZIII's five rib asymmetric tread design pattern merges cornering with straight line stability. Siped tie-bars reinforce block rigidity for control and enhance wet traction.

Excellent anti-hydroplaning characteristics. Long lateral grooves evacuate water from the center of the footprint. Four straight, wide grooves further heighten drainage for improved wet performance. A 3-D wave wall increases drainage capabilities and reinforces center rib stability.

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

Real world durability. Rigid, wide steel belts, high tension casing plies, and advanced silica tread compound construction means these tires are designed to last.

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 8 Inch 2005+ Wheels

Features:
  • Y-speed rating for true high-performance vehicles
  • Direct replacement sizing for premium performance vehicles
  • True performance upgrade sizing for performance segment vehicles like the Mustang

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.

Seems to be a good tire

Haven't had them on very long, looks good, handle well. We'll see how well they wear over time, but so far satisfied.

    Frustration turns into delight

    My first attempt to buy wheels was to try the local tire shops. None of them had many wheels in stock and expected me to purchase them blindly. Then after seeing a friend's Mustang with American Muscle Bullitt wheels I was sold immediately. I ordered my wheel & tire package on monday and had them on the car friday. I chose the gloss black center Bullitt wheel and Sumito tires. They arrived in perfect condition, look beautiful, and are very high quality. American Muscle exceeded my wildest expectations for service, price and quality. I will purchase from them again without hesitation.

    Have not driven much. Like them so far.

    Simple review, of the Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z III Tire - 235/50-18 are sharp looking, I have only driven 150 miles on them. Hug the curves GREAT. The 2007 Mustang GT that I have put them on does not go out in the rain.
