Sumitomo HTR Z III
Initial Review: 18,000 miles on tires
November 30, 2011

I was quite surprised how well these tires preformed. When new, they were quiet, very responsive, and overall comfortable on the road.

Now that they have 18000 and some change on them, they've begun to dull. The noise over rough surfaces has increased and the response has become average. I can't really complain, they took some auto-x in the summer combined with all-around spirited driving and have lasted almost as long as other tires that made MANY long trips.

Will definitely pick up another set in the spring.
