Sumitomo HTR T4
Initial Review: 67,000 miles on tires
May 01, 2013

This is my first review on this tire and I Love them.67,000 miles on them and ready to change them for new ones.It has a treadwear warranty of 75,000 miles and i probably could get close but do not want to take a chance for just a few extra miles.The best tires I have ever owned Period on any car of mine or my wifes and I bought them on sale and never heard of Sumitomo tires before.I am going to buy the Sumitomo Touring tires because it is also a T rated tire with 85,000 miles on the treadwear 10,000 more than these were rated and this is a company that seems to tell the truth about treadwear because other tire brands lie and do not even get close.If you are looking for treadwear life as your number 1 reason for choosing a tire(like me)and a good sounding ride tire and good handling this is your tire.Its hard to believe that they are so inexpensive compared to Goodyear and Michelin(which are horrible and double the price)I live in New Jersey and we have all kinds of weather here and it handles great in snow.Do not let the low price fool you and buy the tires you will not be sorry.I will write a review on the Sumitomo Touring tires when i have some mileage on them.
