With a reputation for quality and leading-edge technology, Sumitomo Tire is a premium tire brand offering a unique mix of quality and value. Sumitomo is the export brand of Sumitomo Rubber Industries, Ltd., one of the largest tire manufacturers in the world. Within the tire industry, Sumitomo enjoys a well-earned reputation for innovative design, precision engineering, and superior quality. Sumitomo is backed by the reputation and resources of the Sumitomo Group, one of the most influential business groups in the world.
Sumitomo's personality, found in the products and the daily operations of Sumitomo Tire, is shaped by a company history extending more than 350 years. The history of Sumitomo dates back to the early 17th century, when Masatomo Sumitomo (1585-1652) opened a book and medicine shop in Kyoto. Later in life, he created his Founder's Precepts, which laid out his business philosophy. The Sumitomo Business Principles, stressing integrity and sound management, were originally based on Masatomo's Precepts and have been a central force shaping the spirit of each Sumitomo company for more than 350 years. Today, Sumitomo is acknowledged as one of Japan's leading business groups. In the U.S., Sumitomo had established a company called Treadways in 1985 to conduct wholesale business of the "SUMITOMO" brand and other private label tires.
Sumitomo Corporation of America (SCOA) brings a global perspective to today's business opportunities as the largest subsidiary of Sumitomo Corporation (SC), one of Japan's major integrated trading and investment business enterprises. Established in 1952 and headquartered in New York City, SCOA has offices throughout the Americas, and is an investor and business partner in more than 75 subsidiary and affiliate companies. SCOA has grown rapidly through its six business groups and six corporate groups. Sumitomo offers a full range of high quality medium truck tires.
SCOA is an integrated global trading company with diversified investments in businesses involved in manufacturing and marketing of consumer products, providing financing for customers and suppliers, coordination and operation of urban and industrial infrastructure products, providing transportation and logistics services, developing natural resources, distribution of steel and other products, and developing and managing real estate. SCOA has operations in a wide array of businesses, organized into six industry focused segments, namely Tubular Products, Steel and Non-Ferrous Metals, Machinery and Power, Chemicals and Electronics, Living Related Business, and Mineral Resources and Energy. In 1985, SCOA established Treadways as a business dedicated to importing and selling Sumitomo brand tires. As the business grew, Treadways soon established itself as a specialized tire marketing company.
For me, Sumitomo HTR Z III is rated #1 comparing to ContiSportContact 3, RE050A PP, and ADVAN sport max performance summer tires. I have the HTR Z III on my C350's rear and it matched perfectly, even comparing to the Pzero I have.
There is a lot of information on the sidewall of a tire. Typically, you'll find UTQG ratings for treadwear, traction and temperature, the size of the tire, the load rating index number with a speed rating index, the construction type (bias or radial), the D.O.T. compliance code, and construction details. On some tires used as original equipment, you may also find a marking that indicates its OE status.
