Default Funny Review of the 315 Sumitomo HTR Z's





2002 Pontiac Trans Am WS6 More Tire Reviews for This Vehicle No Photo Available Buy/More Info
Sumitomo HTR Z
Miles driven on tires: 13,000
Location: Alachua, FL
Driving Condition: Combined Highway/City
Driving Style: Spirited

i have the 315s on the back of my 02 WS6 firebierd and for the money,i dont feel bad at all when i leave a 275 ft burnout when I leave work. They handle great at the track too.Some of my best ETs were on these tires. They ride good also even at speeds in excess of 140 mph. Yes, you can say I put these tires to the test.

+1 cheap Sumitomo 315s mean I can do more burnouts and have more fun than my friends taking care of their expensive GS-D3s.

I've been down the GS-D3 road on a daily driver and let me tell you I will NEVER do it again. Yes they hook, yes they are badass, and yes they have great wet traction, but for the money and the lifespan. I felt like a complete jackass for spending $1200 on them. I'm running the 315 sumi's now and they work perfect for my application which is DD. Oh and yes there mounted on a set of Fikse wheels to

Isn't putting Sumi's on Fikses kind of like wrapping a fresh dog turd around a beautiful beef filet?

Default Sumos work fine for me.

I got to agree, I cant see spending big bucks for tires on a car that sits 95% of the time and the other times the speed is rarely over 70 mph, a crusier does not need $200 ea tires, these work just fine, YMMV

PS-I buy Sam's Club hi-octane gas too
