Initial Review, 5,000 Miles on Tires
When I purchased the HTR Z II's I was looking for a reasonably priced, well performing tire. I got the reasonable price, but not the performance I was expecting. The appearance is the best quality this tire has. The dry traction is sufficent but even with my wider rims than OEM's, I don't feel 100% that the tire is going to hold. I did get caught in the rain one time and the wet traction was good. The other quality of the tire that should be noted is that performance is definately related to temperature. During hot summer days with road temps into the 100's, the tires feel great. When you drive them below 50 degrees, it becomes a bit sketchy. It's to be expected for this type of tire, but it's a little extreme to me. Overall, I'm OK with my pruchase but would probably go a different tire next time around.
