The all-season Sumitomo Encounter HT tire delivers comfortable, quiet rides and superb highway traction in all-weather conditions. Featuring an optimized rib design, this tire provides stable rides with superb steering and braking performance. In wet conditions, grooves expel water from the contact patch to boost safety while sipes improve all-season traction. The variable width shoulder block design reduces noise and combines with the solid center rib to improve ride smoothness.

Ratings & Reviews

Sumitomo Encounter HT

I put two of these on the rear of my 2012 Ford E250 Extended cargo van. They replaced 2 nice Toyo Open Country HT which I moved to the front. Tire pressure was set to the previous tire levels which was the same as the factory sticker. I could immediately tell the difference and it wasn’t good at all! These tires felt like mush on the rear and my van that handed great before get like I was going to lose it on the highway going 65 on a slight curve. I tried diffferent pressure and roads all with the same issue. Wet highway was even worse. Even though these tires look nice and the tread appears to be decent for all seasons the sidewalks must be weak. Other reviews I read were all glowing except for another person with a similar van, and I should have taken the advice of that review. So now I’m another person complaining about the same issue, so it’s a legit problem!!

I bought these last month and had them mounted on my diesel Excursion last week before a 1000+ mile trip towing a 5x8 enclosed trailer with ~2500 lbs of weight. I won't lie - the first 300+ miles were NOT fun. These tires are 180 degrees different from the Michelins I had for the last 4.5 years. These didn't feel right, with steering and overall handling much worse than the previous tires. I had to stiffen the adjustable shocks to be able to drive the rig with any confidence at all. I tow a lot and towed probably 15-20k miles with the previous tires and I had never experienced anything like the way these felt. But they got immeasurably better after that first heat-cycle. The steering and handling issues went away and they felt more normal. But nowhere close to the Michelins in feel overall. The sidewalls give the impression of being made of wet noodles compared to both sets of previous tires, even at 80 PSI. But around town with 74-ish PSI and softer shocks, they are very comfortable. So the jury is still out on these, but I'll probably grow more accustomed to the feel over the next few months.

I am driving a 2015 GMC Canyon SLT. These tires have appeared to work as well if not better then the original factory tires. The handling on wet southern roads is very stable for a pickup truck. Reasonable acceleration at wet intersection appear to have no pavement slippage. if you are aggressive you will get some but very recoverable here in the first few thousand miles.
