Sumitomo HTR A/S P02: An Improved Low Cost Tire Option

For years we sold Sumitomo's HTR A/S P01 in massive quantities because it was one of the better priced tires and was available in a large number of sizes. While not the highest rated tire in the High Performance All-Season category, the tire performed well enough to satisfy consumers and make it competitive among other tires at a similar price point. This spring season Sumitomo has rolled out a replacement appropriately named the HTR A/S P02. The P02 features a newly designed asymmetric tread design that improves road manners and allows for front-to-back and side-to-side rotations. Also improved on the P02 is the amount of tread void between the tread blocks and additional biting edges for better performance in foul weather. 

While our testing is underway, we are already receiving positive reviews from consumers. At first glance, the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 seems to make solid improvements over the P01 and maintains a very attractive price point. At the time of its introduction, the HTR A/S P02 is offered in 31 sizes in a mixture of both H and V speed ratings. 

Shop by vehicle to see if the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 is available for your application.
