Review 1 of 23

Price Paid:  $0.00 from Jerry's Tire House

Year / Model Reviewed:
2004 Chrysler Crossfire

Strengths:
Less expensive than Michelins. Pay for what you get!

Weaknesses:
With less than 60 miles on tire, the sidewall split from tread.

Summary:
I bought the new Sumitomo tires for wife's Crossfire. Within a month (60 miles, we normally carpool) the sidewall completed separated from the tread while she was driving home from work. She is not an aggressive driver and was going 60 mph, dry pavement, nice weather and hit nothing. One third of sidewall separated on the inside of a rear tire. Inspection shows the other 2/3rds was nearing failure. I discussed this with dealer in person and was advised they would check into it. I have called twice and they will not return the call. They did advise that they did not think they could get these tires anymore so they can do nothing. Ya...sure

Review 3 of 23

Price Paid:  $660.00 from NTB

Year / Model Reviewed:
2004 Envoy

Strengths:
They ride smooth with fair traction

Weaknesses:
Very poorly constructed tire

Summary:
We owned these tires for less than 3 month's, The wife and I were driving out of town one day when with the wife at the wheel the tire came apart, The treads litterly left the side walls, There were 10 seconds of some real hard praying going on as she had actually lost control of the vehicle. NTB DID NOT CARE !! They said they couldn't tell if it was road hazard or product failure, I guess that will be determined when someone loses their life. I will buy my next tire s from someone else. Meanwhile it's $47.00 prorate and driving very slow, If you see a envoy holding up traffic by driving very slow, See if it has the HTR Sport tires by sumitomo and wave.

Review 4 of 23

Price Paid:  $0.00 from Tire rack

Year / Model Reviewed:
1995 Saab 900SE

Strengths:
Looks.
heavy rain.
Low road noise (if you care

Weaknesses:
Junk rubber (soft would stick to the road)
Corners
accel/braking
light rain

Summary:
If you are looking for a tire that has the directional and tuner look this is it. Plus you get the price!!
These tires will feel like you put on a REAL direction tire on backwards. They do not corner stop or accel. They do handle heavy rain good, but they wear poorly. I dont know how they got into this ultra class.
I had a set of firehawks that were balding and they 100% better on cornering and braking. not so well with acceleration.

Review 5 of 23

Price Paid:  $440.00 from NTB

Year / Model Reviewed:
2000 Volvo s40

Strengths:
Quite ride, comfortable ride

Weaknesses:
Poor cornering and handling, made in China

Summary:
I recently purchased the Touring LSH Had Yokohama AS530's before that. The Sumitomos did not handle as well as the Yokohamas, the cornering and steering responsiveness was poor. They did ride quitely and comfortably though. I ended up returing them and exchanging them for Mich Primacy MXV4's which were about the same price. My other concern with the Sumitomo's were that they were made in China. Ultimately I ended up with the Michelin's though. I would have been happy with another set of Yokohama's as well, as my experience with them was good also but since they were all similar in cost I went with the Michelins. I would not consider these again as for the price you can get a better handling Yokohama or Michelin that are also not made in China.
