    HTR Z II Summer Tire. The Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II Series Tire is an ultra high performance summer tire. Its aggressive extra wide, arched tread blocks deliver extraordinary performance in either wet or dry conditions, both on and off the track.

    Uncompromising Traction and Handling. The HTR Z II'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 superb 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 enhanced road grip in adverse weather conditions.

    Smooth Ride w/ Minimal Road Noise. In addition to outstanding performance, the HTR Z II Series Tire delivers 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 stereo system!

    Unique Flanged Lip for Wheel Protection. The HTR Z II Series Tire also features a unique flanged lip on the lower sidewall, which helps protect your expensive wheels from curb damage while parallel parking.

    Application. This Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II Tire is designed for use on any 1979-2019 Ford Mustang model. Please select your proper tire sizing from the options above.

    NOTE: This is an ultra high performance summer specific compound and tread tire. Use during the summer and warm temperature months will result in superior traction over & all-season tires. Use during the winter months or in cold temperatures significantly reduces traction and increases stopping distance, as the compound becomes less sticky.

        I'm shopping tires, what's the width difference in 265/35/18 and 315/35/18?

        • The width of a tire is actually the first number listed in the tire sizing: ie. for the 265/35-18, the width is 265mm and for 315/35-18, the width is 315mm. Hope this helps!

        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.

        Why isn’t there a 295 for an 18 inch rim? I saw it the other day and now I don’t see it?

        • At this time we do not offer this tire in 19" sizes.

        Running 255-45-18's front and 275-40-18's on the read and mostly normal type of driving what is the expected mileage I can get with these tires?

        • Due to its nature as a performance tire, we typically see between 25,000 and 35,000 miles tread life depending on driving conditions and driving type.

            Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II 18"

            First off these are NOT year round tires. I have these tires on my stang for over 32,000 miles. Highway and in town driving. I'm not gentle on them but I not smoking them every chance I get. Tread wear has been very good for a soft tire. They will sing to you on grooved pavement, totally suck in heavy rain and ride like bricks in weather below 40 degrees. Once they get warmed up they will grip the road really well. On long highway trips they ride fairly smooth and comfortable given the type of tire and stiff suspension of the car. Over all Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II have been good tires and I'd buy another set.
