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. Sumitomo's initial mainstay business was copper mining. It later diversified into a variety of fields including finance, insurance, iron and steel, real estate, and trade. Today, Sumitomo is 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.

Warranty

SUMITOMO Tire Limited Warranty

1. Tires Covered by This Warranty.

This limited warranty applies to SUMITOMO brand steel belted radial passenger car and light truck/SUV tires bearing the complete description and serial number as required by the DOT. This warranty applies only to tires purchased after January 1, 2010. Tires purchased before that date are subject to previous published warranties.

2. What is Warranted and For How Long.

This warranty is effective only for tires for which claims are made within six years of retail purchase, as indicated by an original copy of the consumer invoice.

A. Material and Workmanship Warranty.

Every SUMITOMO brand radial tire is warranted against defects in workmanship and materials for the life of the original useable tread. The original useable tread is defined as the total original tread depth less 2/32”. Tires with 2/32” or less remaining tread depth in any groove are considered worn out by the U.S. Department of Transportation. Tires adjusted under the terms of this warranty will be replaced at the current retail price less the percentage of the original useable tread remaining on the tire.

Exceptions::

A SUMITOMO tire that becomes unserviceable due to a defect in workmanship or materials within the first 2/32” of tread wear will be replaced free of charge with a comparable SUMITOMO tire. Tire uniformity claims will be accepted for adjustment only during the first 1/32” of the original tread depth. Such tires will be replaced free of charge with a comparable SUMITOMO tire. A set of four (4) tires from the same vehicle will not be accepted for out-of-round or out-ofbalance claims unless the non-uniformity of all tires is verified by the tire dealer. Any HTR ZIII, HTR A/S P01, HTR T4 or LS T/H/V that becomes unserviceable due to a defect in workmanship and materials during the life of the original useable tread will be replaced free of charge. Any HTRZ or HTR Sport HP tire that becomes unserviceable due to a defect in workmanship or materials during the first 50% of the original useable tread will be replaced free of charge. During the second 50% of the original useable tread such tires will be replaced on a pro rated basis if removed from service only due to workmanship related defects. Any labor, balancing or disposal charges related to the replacement of a tire under the terms of this warranty are the tire owner’s responsibility.

B. Mileage Warranty.

The following SUMITOMO tires are warranted to achieve mileage as noted before becoming worn out at 2/32” remaining tread depth in any groove

Example: If an HTR T4 tire has reached a depth of 2/32” in any groove, and the total mileage is 45,000 miles, a credit of 40% of the current retail price will be applied to the purchase of another HTR T4 replacement tire. This mileage warranty is effective for normal highway use when all the Owner’s Obligations listed in Section 4 are met. The mileage warranty is void for tires used in off-highway service. It does not apply to any SUMITOMO brand tire except HTR A/S P01 and HTR T4, tires that cannot be rotated, such as staggered fitments, or any tire described in Section 3. What is Not Covered (Exclusions). A cash refund will not be given in lieu of credit toward the purchase of a comparable SUMITOMO brand tire to replace the worn tire.

C. Limited Road Hazard Free Repair or Replacement Warranty:

Any Sumitomo Touring LS T/H/V or A/S PO1 tire that becomes unserviceable within one (1) year of the purchase date or within the first 2/32nds of an inch of treadwear due to a normal road hazard condition will be repaired or replaced free of charge (subject to the General Conditions and Limitations). The term “road hazard” does not include sidewall damage from scuffing curbs.

3. What is Not Covered (Exclusions).

A. Unserviceability due to road hazards (cuts, snags, punctures, bruises, impact breaks, etc.) improper inflation, overload, irregular wear, wheel imbalance, defective vehicle mechanical components (i.e., brakes, shocks, rims) improper suspension alignment, accident, fire, theft, chemical damage, chain damage, racing, off-road use, run flat, improper installation, vandalism, or abuse. B. Tires on any vehicles registered and normally used outside the United States and Canada. C. Tires branded “Blemish”, “NA” or having the DOT number removed OR disfigured. D. Any tire that has been altered to improve traction or uniformity. E. Tires presented for warranty claim by other than the original purchaser. This warranty is not transferable. F. Tires transferred to another vehicle from the one upon which they were originally installed. G. A tire whose failure is related to any previous damages and/or repairs. H. Any cost of tire repair or retreading is not covered by this warranty and will be borne solely by the tire owner. I. The Mileage Warranty is not applicable if tires are used in commercial service, have premature or irregular wear due to abusive service or defective vehicle mechanical conditions. Abusive service includes off road use, mountain road driving, racing, or passenger car tires on pick-up, recreational or utility vehicles.

4. Owner’s Obligations.

A. At the time of purchase, the tire(s) must be properly installed, balanced, and air pressure set to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation. At least monthly the owner must check air pressure (when tires are cool) with an accurate air gauge and reinflate to recommended level. Tires must be rotated every 6,000 miles, and the proof of compliance must be recorded on the Warranty Card.

B. All warranty claims must be presented to an authorized SUMITOMO Tire dealer.

C. You must present your Warranty Card verifying mileage, rotation, proof of date and place of purchase, to make a Mileage Warranty claim. The name of the SUMITOMO dealer from whom the tires were purchased must be included on the form. D. You must pay any costs for mount

HTR Z III is rated #1
SUMITOMO® - HTR Z III
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.

They are pretty quiet
SUMITOMO® - HTR Z III
I just got the Sumo HTR Z III's on my Mazda 6 2 months ago, and so far they seem to be pretty good for a cheap performance tire. For the money, they seem to handle well and are pretty quiet. They are even better than my Mich that originally came on my car.
