I had the Sumitomo HTR ZIII and they were pretty good in the dry, but bad in the wet. I just instructed in an E36 M3 during a driving school that had the Hankook tires, and these seemed to be quite good in both dry and damp conditions. Generally, the newer design in a particular tire category is better, since each manufacturer tries to beat their competitors. The Sumitomo had been around a LONG time without any changes; I think the updated Hankooks would beat them on almost every measure.
