Nice handling in dry conditions which is all that I encounter where I live. 2nd set, very impressed. Happy that Simple Tire is able to get almost any tire, including 14" tires that I require. Fast shipping and good customer service. Awesome!By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
The Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 provides all around good performance. I was a little reluctant to try them because of the low price, but they received many good reviews. And I add my thumbs up as well. I installed 225 50 16's on my BMW E36 328ic. They track straight and hold corners well under "spirited" driving conditions. I have them inflated to maximum pressure for my vehicle - 34lbs in front and 41lbs for rear. The sidewalls are fairly flexible so maximum inflation yields optimal performance. Even with this high inflation they still absorb road bumps in a controlled manner. After 1200 miles the tires are fully "broken in". There is no noticeable tire noise. In wet conditions or rain, the tires can spin when taking off in 1st gear. But once rolling they grip really well. Good choice.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
I purchased because they were rated well by Consumer Reports. The were good for about 30k. After that they developed a noice like a broken belt. The tread went quickly, but BMW’s tend to be tough on tired. The eat ft tire developed a pull, that went away when I replaced the set.
Very good tires!
Never had this brand of tire and was very surprised and pleased how they performed. The dry and wet Road handling was excellent. Can’t discuss snow... I’m from Texas... so no snow evaluation.
Balanced out with low road force and very little weights. Very impressed so far with the tires.
This is my third set of Sumitomo tires. I took a chance with my first set back in 2009 with nothing to base it on because there were no reviews due to the fact they were relatively new to the market. I was looking first of all, for a good rain tread because I live in SW Florida. Second I was looking for a middle of the road performance tire (which usually is a trade off for tire tread-wear) with a sporty sidewall that would look good on my Solara. The road sound is negligible, very quiet. I am very happy with all the way around with these tires since my first gamble on them. Even when they get down to the wear bar, they still stick to road well and handle in the rain. I would definitely recommend these tires against more expensive recognizable name brands.
Great tire at a great price
These tires provide good performance in dry, wet, and snow conditions. But... these tires do no have a long life - you'll be luck to get 20k miles out of a set.
These are great tires, my husband loves them, I recommend then to everyone. Great in all conditions.
These tires are great. I got them for a GREAT price...and it only 2 days to get them. Will only get my tires from here.
The price was incredible. The location where the tires were shipped could not install the tires. I think there needs to be a review of the places that the tires are shipped.
Although I only have 1,000 on this particular set of tires, they are the second set like these I have owned. I was forced into looking for alternative tires when I could no longer purchase my number one choice due to it being discontinued, 14 inch wheel size tires are a dying breed --- even these Sumitomos in this size are no longer made. But after using them I came to realize that they are just as good and perform very well. The only drawback might be a little less grip in snow, but that's a small price to pay in order to get tires this good in my size.
Have been using these for over three years . One went bad as it had been underinflated too long while at college . Kids !
High performance tyre. great on my dodge. thinking of getting a pair for wife jetta already have 55k on them hoping for another 10k befor i replace
