Sumitomo provides tyres at the best value possible without sacrificing control or durability. And with more than 100 years in the business, backed up by the global reputation and resources of the Sumitomo Group - one of the world’s largest business conglomerates - you can be assured of their expertise when it comes to tyre making. Sumitomo’s tyres feature a silica-rich compound that delivers a greater degree of road surface contact and improved rubber adhesion. This means that drivers get the very best handling and directional stability, plus increased dry and wet grip. An asymmetric 5-rib profile and cleverly spaced extra-wide circumferential grooves with interlaced water evacuation channels mean the tyres deliver excellent aquaplaning resistance in wet conditions. The tyres also boast increased steering response on dry roads, plus shorter braking distances.
