Sumitomo HTR Z III
Initial Review: 22,000 miles on tires
July 28, 2012

I now have 22,000 miles on these tires over 4 years, and I'm very happy with them. At this point they seem to have about half the thread left, so at least for the easy service they're doing thread wear seems pretty good. They clearly outperform my previous 15 BFGoodrich Traction T/A in every way except being much lower profile the ride is naturally rougher. They are also a tad loud.
