Review 1 of 24

Price Paid:  $0.00 from Came on car when bou

Year / Model Reviewed:
1995 Acura Integra

Strengths:
The tires were new when I purchased this car roughly 18 months ago. I had to replace the fronts and rotate to the back after roughly 10 months, but had crazy negative camber from lowering. After it was fixed, the remainder of the tread lasted until today when i noticed a crack in my sidewall, from a shard of metal driven into the lip where the sidewall meets the tread. I did a lot of spirited driving for a good 6 months being as it was my first car, but these tires took everything i threw at them with ease. Taking a 90 degree corner at 35 mph was a walk in the park with these. Wet driving was incredible too. I could still take turns at the same speed as when dry.

Weaknesses:
A little quick on the wear, but that was from horrid camber settings. Would slip up a little in a 1-2 shift, but nothing but a chirp came from these tires.

Summary:
These tires seem to be more oriented around import cars that don't have massive amounts of weight to throw around. every bad review i've seen for these has been on forums where it orients around muscle, hot rod, and heavy weighted vehicles. If you want a good tire for the money and you drive a light import car, pick up a set of these. Tirerack has them for 300 for a set of 4 shipped. I'll be buying these again when my new set runs out. Had to go with low ball tires from Les Schwab because of funds, but when taxes roll around next year, I'll be getting a other set for sure.

Review 2 of 24

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 4 of 24

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 5 of 24

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.

Similar Products Used:
balding firehawks. and a set of sigmas that look kinda like these but hanlde better
