285/35-18 Sumitomo HTR Z II?

So i'm probably going to be getting new 18x9/10 Bullitts soon. I was just wondering if anyone has experience with the 285/35-18 Sumimoto HTR Z II's that come on them? Are they a good tire? I'm used to my 245/?-17 all season tires right now so anything is an improvement, but how do these tires fair on the street and racing at the track?

Keep in mind i'm a college student and can't afford the Nitto wheel/tire package.

I don't have experience with that dude but with that tire. It's not a bad tire

Reviews on tire rack seem to be either love it or hate it.For those tires. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....Model=HTR+Z+II

My opinion is that they are cheap tires for a reason. They may stick better than your current tires but don't expect something really sticky.

I know they aren't the greatest tire, I am on a budget so I don't expect to get super sticky tires but I just want to know how good they are.

I figure I won't be as happy with the 17s, so I'll spend a little more for 18s

I had um on one of my ls1s. Decent tire for the money. Relatively quite, and did well in the rain. Good luck launching on them though. Traction was not good at all.

i had Sumitomo's on my IS300... I will never buy them again.. ever. Continental ExtremeContact DW's are a good budget performing tire.

Not necessarily. For the price i was very happy with the sumis when I had them. Not my first choice obviously, but I was going to school at that time as well haha. Good budget tire IMO. Not performance wise, but they are a decent all season tire. And I've had a lot of experience with tires haha.

Its not a bad tire from what i can feel, of course going from conti extremecontact to these is different and they preformed better but from my budget it perfectly fine for me atm i have many more years till i have to worry

Yea I'm on super low college budget... Going from 17x8 with all seasons to 18x10 with these is probably still going to make me very happy.

I'm not home. I'm still at my 7 week camp lol. I'm coming home tomorrow though, probably won't put them on right away cause I'm going to cut my springs and put them on at the same time. So excited!
