Sounds like cheap tires for a cheap price...I think someone mentioned them in one (or more) of the previous tire posts. I would try a search on Sumitomo and see what has been said about them by others on the board.

They also own/make the Falken brand.

I have Sumitomo 315's on the rear of my Cobra. They are decent daily driven tires. But once they break loose, there is not traction left at all. The price is very high. Go to TireRack.com , they have 275-40-17 for $88 each! Go Here (http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Sumitomo&tireModel=HTR+Z&vehicleSearch=false&partnum=74ZR7HTRZ&fromCompare1=yes&place=19)
I got mine from Tire Rack, good price.

Ummm...that's actually more not less.

Ebay: $349.99 for 4 tires

TireRack: 4 x 88 = $352.00 for 4 tires

+ shipping for total price which would determine which way is less overall.
