Magazine labels Sumitomo tire a 'Best Buy'

The Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 all-season passenger tire recently received a Best Buy designation in the "Economy Touring Car Tire" category by "Consumers Digest" magazine.

The tire was rated on performance, features, expected tread life and warranty. It is “a remarkable value among tires that are in this price range," according to the magazine. "We found that it generates less noise and delivers better comfort, grip, handling and winter traction than do models that cost $25 more.

Richard Purol, vice president of the Sumitomo brand for the TBC Wholesale Group, says the designation of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 emphasizes TBC's commitment to giving consumers the best value "without sacrificing quality, comfort or control.”
