Sumitomo HTR Z III
Initial Review: 10,000 miles on tires
February 14, 2013

In a car with 420whp the 300 tread wear just is no where near enough. They are great all round tires. Good tread wear even with a useless 1st and 2nd.
At a 285/30-18 sidewall the ride was a little stiff compared to a 17 tire.
Pretty good wet traction. Much better than the kuhmo xs tires I also have in the wet.
My 255/40-17 kuhmos have better traction in the dry but their tread wear is no where near as good. Hence the two sets.
