TBC Unveils Sumitomo HTR Z5 Maximum Performance Summer Tire
The new ultra-high performance Sumitomo HTR Z5 tire is available now in 54 Y-rated sizes ranging from 17 to 20 inches.
The Sumitomo HTR Z5 replaces the HTR Z3 and is targeted for owners of high performance tuned coupe, sedan and compact vehicles. TBC Brands LLC says the HTR Z5 outperforms the HTR Z3 in ride comfort, wet braking, dry braking and wet handling, while matching the HTR Z3 in road noise, pattern noise, dry handling and lateral hydroplaning.
Features include a full-width nylon band to optimize high-speed stability, with high-rigidity steel belts for durability and car stability, along with a hard apex strengthened sidewall for cornering stiffness.
