Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 (H- or V-Speed Rated)
Initial Review: 15,000 miles on tires
May 30, 2012

These tires have given great traction in wet conditions, and resist hydroplaning in deep water pretty well at all speeds (city and highway). I like how low the noise level is, and also how well they grip in dry conditions. My only dislike is the cornerning feel - they seem soft in corners at normal highway speeds, such as taking a winding off-ramp or juncture ramp on an interstate highway. My old tires could maintain normal speeds without feeling unstable, but these feel a bit unstable on long gradual off-ramp curves, forcing me to slow down a bit and feel less confident. The treadwear seems excellent, as they look nearly new still after 15,000 miles
