Review & Install Video

HTR Z III. Sumitomo's HTR Z III series tire is an ultra high performance summer tire. The aggressively designed 235/55-17 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: 17 x 8 Inch 2005+ Wheels

  • 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.

I feel that the tires were a very good price. The tread design is simular to the Pirelli that the car originaly came with. I am also satisfied with the quick delivery.

i don't get it. does free mounting and balance included means someone will come and swap my old tires for the new ones in the driveway??


  • Hi, Our free mounting and balancing means we will ship your tires already mounted and machine balanced on the wheels of your choice and when you receive them you will install them on your Mustang or have a shop do the install for you.

Will these fit 2012 Mustang V6 Premium wheels? The ones I have on from factory are 225/60/R17. Thanks!


  • Unfortunately the premium V6 option came with 18 inch rims, so I do not know exactly what wheel we are talking about. If you take the wheel off and look at the inside (behind the wheel) of the spokes, the measurement should be etched into the wheel. Once you know for sure what size wheel you have you will be able to make a good decision on tire size.

    Nice Tires!

    Bought these tires mounted on my new rims. These tires are for the summer only. They are nice and wide, filling the wheel wells up nicely. Only time will tell regarding wear, but traction does seem to be quite good when the roads are wet. Dry traction is also pretty good! These tires are a good value.

    I have driven about 500 miles on these tire dry and wet ( heavy rain at highway speed) and the traction was good. Nice ride and average tire noise. These in my opinion are as good as the oem Pirelli's at 2/3 the price

    Best Mod you could ever make. These tires make your Pony stick to the road like glue. No noise, ride perfect, should have upgraded tires when I first got the car.
