Sumitomo's HTR Z5 ultra-high performance tire is a slick tire that more than earns its "top performer on dry roads" ranking. Our independent road testing saw top-tier results in wet and dry road conditions and five-star hydroplane resistance.

?Summer vs Winter Tests

BRAKING

We varied our approach speeds by driving surface and by season for two reasons. First, this represents how most Canadians would normally drive on that surface in each season. Second, testing in both seasons provides an indication of how a tire's performance will be affected by road temperature.

CORNERING

To understand how road surface temperatures affect the cornering performance of a tire, our cornering tests are completed in both summer conditions (dry and wet pavement, and gravel roads) and winter conditions (dry, wet and icy pavement). Please note that slush is also tested but completed in a specific slush cornering test..

?Independent & Objective Testing

The independent tire testers conducted extensive tests to determine how the tires in our core line-up perform in a range of conditions in both summer and winter. To maintain neutrality, no driver knew the specifics of the tires they were testing each time. All results were analyzed and processed by the testing group and then provided to Kal Tire for sharing with our customers.

Love this rubber. These Sumotomo tires are probably the best ultra performance tires at this price point. Handling is very good with excellent cornering and road noise is possibly a weakness but should not deter you from purchasing them. Plus I ordered a set of different tires first that were considered Performance/All-season and they did not look great. They were chunky looking as the tread wrapped around the edge with fairly large grooves. I asked them if there was any way to exchange, return or sell them and they simply ordered the Sumotomos for me with no hassles and charged minor difference in price. Get all my tires for three vehicles from Kal Tire and they never disappoint whether it is winter, or summer tires or rims, their selection and price is only surpassed by their service. 45 minutes in and out, amazing.
