HTR Z III. Sumitomo's HTR Z III series is an ultra high performance summer tire. The aggressively designed 245/45-19 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: 19 x 8.5 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.

    great tire for the price

    For the price you pay for these tires I couldn't have asked for a better set. This is my second set of HTR Z III I have put on my stang. The first set didn't last as long as I thought, but they do go through some abuse being on my 5.0. I did like them enough to buy them a second time though.

    Great Upgrade!

    I put together a staggered black Magnetic style wheel package with these tires. Previously I came from the HTR Z II's on Bullett wheels. Those were a bit noisy and became even noisier after some wear. These newer generation HTR Z III's are awesome! They are MUCH quieter than the II's and they STICK better (275/40-19's on rear)! After I installed my wheels I played around a bit and went into sport mode and hit it from a stop with some 'spirit'. Where the II's spun fairly easily ( I have a Cobra Jet setup :) ) I was a bit more hard pressed to get these III's to break and stay spinning; they actually hooked almost immediately (was a hot day too). Pretty impressed for sure at this price point for a performance tire!

    Great product!

    I bought these tires as a wheel/tire combo. I have to say besides having some great new wheels, these tires are hard to beat. I have had these on for a few days now and strangely as it is went threw a rainy day very good! I'm surprised how good these tires are and how great of traction they get. If your looking for a great deal this is the place to get them. I could not find any place online or local that could beat this deal. I'm glad I bought from here and will continue to buy all my modifications here :)

    Super sticky tires!

    I ordered these tires paired with AMR wheels, same 245/45/19 size all around. I have been very pleased with the way these tires handle. PROS: In dry conditions, traction with 3.73s and these sumitomo tires is better than with 2.73s on hard skinny stock tires. I've run these tires at the 1/4 mile track as well as daily driving and can say that they hook up amazingly! In wet conditions, I am able to drive with extreme confidence. These tires keep me planted and eliminate the need to heavily reduce my speed like on stock tires. The ride quality is very fair for the size. These tires ride only about 15% rougher than 17" stock Michelin tires. They are much quieter than expected! These tires are Y rated, so they can take any speed a mustang can throw at it. Huge upgrade from the common 115/130 mph rated tires. CONS: These tires don't come with any recommended PSI, but the correct air pressure from ford for this size tire/rim is 32 psi. These tires also seem to wear a bit more quickly than general all-seasons. The treads are not the most aggressive I've seen, but seem to serve their purpose quite well. OVERALL: 5/5 If you're in the market for this tire size, consider these tires over the competition. They are slightly more costly, but make up for that with terrific performance and stability.

    Very VERY good in all aspects

    I'm in SoCal and we haven't had any rain since so I've not had the chance to get them wet yet. But so far, really good feeling overall. Quiet, sticky, and solid. Everything you want. The price with free delivery made this a no-brainer.

    Sumitomo HTR Z III - 2011 GT

    This gives more comfortable ride and grip through corners. I have not tried these on wet road but I bet it will handle better than stock Pirellis as other review (TireRack) says. AM deal is a lot better than others. awesome transaction

    Best Tires Rolling On The Market!

    These tires far exceeded my expectations. I've always bought Pirelli's in the past, until someone recommended that I try these. The traction is phenomenal and they look fantastic on the Black 2010 GT500 Rims I also purchased from American Muscle. These are a must have for any Stang driver, whether your's is a daily driver or for street and strip!

    AMAZING TIRES!!! Way better than advertised...

    I purchased a set of these tires paired with American Muscle's 19" Charcoal AMR Wheels. I am amazed at the nice race car look and feel that these tires bring to my mustang. Amazing traction, better control of my car, and a noticeable smooth ride are a few of the perks. I reccomend this tire for anybody looking for a safe, high quality product that doesn't break the bank.

    Night and day from what I was on.

    Thrilled with my GT500 wheels and the Sumitomo tires. Smooth, quiet and grippy. The OE's were worn and the Blizzaks were like jello. Now all I need is fair weather. Thanks to American Muscle for great pricing and fast shipping along with the fine service.

    Most defiantly bang for your buck. I suggest getting the nitrogen fled for free. Over all rides great and better traction control for sure. So I recommend this product.
