sumitomo tires

Thank you for your advice. I've done some shopping around. Does anyone know how sumitomo HTRZs are. Are they a fast wearing tire, or have any problems. I was hoping to get those due to their inexpensiveness, but if they are bad, i'll go with eagle f1's or khumos.

Re: sumitomo tires

I have them on my 5.0 their a straight tire I feel they catch a bit more traction then my old Khumos did which believe me in my opinion are the worst tires out there

Re: sumitomo tires

check yokahoma avs es100s im on my second set of them they last good and ride good and also look very good. They are not a super amazing performance tire of course but... you cant have both worlds. I finally wore mine out around 40k last time around (but i keep mine rotated and aligned good)

i have sumitomos and they seem good as far as wear. They are not super sticky but, i like em...especially for the price.

Re: sumitomo tires

Theyre cheap tires that arent sticky and dont last long. Dont buy them, or the F1's/kuhmos for that matter.

Look into BFG KDW2's, Firestone wide ovals, or falken 451s... those are some really good tires
