    Sumitomo's HTR Z III. Are you looking for an excellent max performance summer tire at a friendly price? If so, the Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z III is your Tire. The aggressively designed HTR Z III delivers extraordinary performance in both wet or dry conditions, on and off the track.

    Innovative Tread Design. The Sumitomo HTR Z III is the perfect summer performance tire for any Mustang. With an asymmetric 5-rib directional tread pattern, reinforced construction, and innovative traction features, the HTR Z III will provide uncompromised handling. Additional features include large outboard shoulders and intermediate tread blocks along with continuous center and inboard intermediate ribs to provide white-knuckle handling.

    Summer Performance Compound. Sumitomo's HTR Z III Tires feature a unique compound that is specifically designed for track and performance applications. The silica-enhanced tread compound provides excellent dry traction making the HTR Z III the "go-fast" rubber your Mustang needs to stick to the track.

    Excellent Wet Traction. Long lateral grooves of the HTR Z III evacuate water from the center of the footprint, where four straight, wide grooves further heighten drainage for improved wet performance. A 3-D wave wall increases drainage capabilities and reinforces center rib stability, while siped tie-bars reinforce block rigidity for control and enhance wet traction.

    Smooth Ride; Minimal Noise. In addition to outstanding performance, 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!

    Application. The Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z III Tire is designed for use on 1979-2019 Mustangs. Please choose your size from the ordering options above. Sold individually.

    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.

    Mounting & Balancing: AmericanMuscle offers professional mounting and balancing on all wheels and tires when purchased together on the same order for an additional fee. This will allow you to swap out your old wheels for your new set when they arrive. We even offer Free Nitrogen tire fill.

    • State of the Art On-Site Tire Facility
    • Scratch-Free Mounting Process
    • Environmentally Friendly, Lead Free Wheel Weights
    • Free Optional Nitrogen Tire Fill
    • 1 to 2 Business Day Turn Around Time on Most Orders

    Free Nitrogen Fill! AmericanMuscle is pleased to offer FREE optional nitrogen fill on wheels and tires that are purchased together on the same order. Filling your high performance tires with nitrogen has many benefits including:

    • Improves Fuel Economy
    • Reduced Weight
    • Maintaining Constant Tire Pressure throughout the Year
    • Prevents Corrosion to Preserve Wheel and Tire Life

    5 Top Rated Questions

    I see other answers stating that a 255 wide tire will fit a 8 inch wheel. I have 19x8.5 and curious if a 275 would fit my wheels?

    • A 275 will most likely be too wide for your 19x8.5" wheel, but will vary from tire manufacturer to tire manufacturer. Most 275's are only approved for 9" wide to 11" Wide wheels.

    I have a r19/9.5 wheel and want to know can I fit a 255/40r19 without that stretched look on all four corners of my 2015 mustang? I guess lowering will be next...and what is the N2 service if I'm just buying tires?

    • A 255/40R19 Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z III Tire will fit on wheels ranging from 8.5" wide to 10" wide, with 9 being the "ideal" width. These should fit very well on your 19x9.5" wheels, and still allow you to lower your Mustang. If ordering wheels and tires together, we offer free mounting and balancing with Nitrogen or compressed air. Tires ordered by themselves are not able to take advantage of this.

      Decent.

      Not the worse tire I've ever had, but far from the best. They are slick. NO TRACTION!! On a stock 17 gt auto, I spin through 2nd gear. Also they are do not fit well on 20x10.5. The side walls are a little stretched and leaves the rim lip vulnerable to cub rash if you were to rub anything or chipping if rocks sling up. Over all I would go with Nittos or Gmax over these.

      After some back order issues, my mounted, balanced and nitrogen filled tires arrived. Also the TPMS system and caliper covers arrived earlier. I installed all of the above in the driveway in an afternoon. Absolutely beautiful! The car drives and tracks perfectly. Have since installed the black fuel gate. Followed the directions and the TPMS system hooked right up.

      VALUE AND PERFORMANCE

      We only drive this vehicle about 4,000 miles per year as vehicle is in storage 5 months every year. I was replacing a set of Michelin A/S staggered tires that cost twice as much as these Sumitomo HTR Z III's. Tires only last us 4 years here in Florida due to UV and heat causing dry rot. So I figured that not much concern was to be given to mileage ratings. To my surprise the ride was better than the higher price Michelins when new. Handling was greatly improved as they take the curves remarkably well. The first heavy rain on the interstate was also without a problem and tracked very well. You can't go wrong for the price.

      Really liked these, I had never ran Sumitomo before but on a stock car with 285s in the rear they hook much better than stock but still give a little slip on the 1st>2nd shift!
