Any members tried these new tiresSumitomo HTR Z II
on their C5? They look and sound great in all the recent reviews. Older version had a sidewall problem.

Let me know what you know.
Thanks

Yeah, who said there is no free lunch. Less than $450 with shipping for C5 front & rear. Any experience with them??

I have a 96 LT-4 that I bought with sumitomo HTR Z's on it. 315-35-17's rear and 275-45-17 front. I only drive it in the summer( that's all there good for) But man do they grip. Quiet and ride nice, wearing excellent,I drive it every day and when Ifinally need new ones those are what I'm going back to. In fact on my wife's 99 that car has pilot's and I don't like them, I feel there noisy and Idon't feel as confident standing on the corner's. When it's time for new rubber for her's I'm going with sumitomo.:Steer

I put a set on my 99 this spring, but it's too early to report on wear. These are a big change for me since they replaced the runflats. So far the ride noise is down, they grip great and the overall ride is comfortable. I read the reviews and figured they were worth a try.
