I bought a set of four new tires SUMITOMO Encounter HT 265/70R16 112T and had them installed on my 2011 Frontier truck. The first couple weeks they rode great then developed a noisy gallop sound along with the galloping ride. I ran these tires for a total of 21000 miles and had them balanced 8 times. None of the tires places could balance the two rear tires. I even took my truck to the nissan dealer and paid for diagnostic testing to determine where the galloping was coming from. Two of the tire stores suggested replacement along with the dealer. This morning I went to the only tire store that did three and a half hours work for free and bought a new set of michelin tires that cost $917 out the door. If you consider what I spent for the four sumitomo tires and 7 balance jobs running from 56 to 150 at the dealer the new Michelin were a good deal. The truck now rides like new again. I will never ever buy an off brand tire again!
Tires are great and the price is just as well! Try them you won't be disappointed! I did my homework I own a 2015 dodge ram hemi had Goodyear Factory good tire when thru two set with only 70,000 miles. So decided to change the Sumitomo Encounter, so far good!
Got these for an 05 Ford F-150 and had them for awhile and I thought it'll be time for a review. I must I say, I am wowed at these tyres. Like I cannot believe how much a truck ride so much better now, we've been tyre searching for our family truck after realising that the previous tyres were worn out and needed to be replaced. I told my parents about this site and found these tire but sadly didn't buy it here, but got them somewhere else. Now with the tyres I like how much smoother and quieter the ride is now and handling has improved thanks to these rubbers and I hope they'll last long and will want to see how they'll do in winter since it's approaching.
