Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 (H- or V-Speed Rated)
Initial Review: 30,000 miles on tires
February 07, 2013

I have used various tires on this vehicle (Eagle GA, Eagle Hp, Bf Goodrich traction TA). For the price this is by far the best tire I have bought. I drive in a spirited manner, and on dry pavement these tires are accomodating. Turn in is responsive and predictable, traction is adequate, and holds well in corners. Wet traction is good when the tires are new, but hydroplaning increases markedly with wear. Winter driving is barely acceptable; I would recommend a dedicated set of winter tires if you experience more than occasional light winter weather with these tires. Additionally, these tires are comparatively quiet and comfortable.
