Sumitomo HTR Z III
Follow-Up Review: 5,000 miles on tires
Im not sure exactly how many miles I have on them now, but I still have vibration problems with these tires..Its weird, they will smooth out for a bit and then the vibration starts again..I have no clue why..Im also not crazy about the noise they make when I go to slow down..its like a whinning noise in the front until you stop.
Initial Review: 1,500 miles on tires
I bought these with my wheel and tire package, performance is good and they grip pretty well for the price. Im not sure if I got a bad set..but I've tried to get these balanced out twice now with no luck..not sure if thats why they are so cheap, but I won't buy them again for sure.
