A high performance summer tyre with 'A' grade wet grip
For drivers who want the best combination of performance and safety.
Large circumferential grooves clear water quickly to reduce aquaplaning
New tread pattern featuring 3D sipes that help the tyre warm up and optimise wet grip
New polymer technology and advanced mixing techniques provide better wet and dry grip, reducing rolling resistance and greater fuel efficiency
Rim flange protector helps to minimise kerb damage to alloy wheels*
New noise reducing feature - reduces noise from tyre/road interaction
Available in a wide range of fitments from 15' to 18' rim diameters with V, W and Y speed rating
*A rim flange protector is designed to protect the flange area - not the whole wheel. Many modern wheel designs may have domed outward designs well beyond the flange.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

29.02.2020 from Andrew An excellent tyre. Having a set a winter's I wa expecting these to be good and I was not wrong. Very surefooted and quiet. Will definitely be having Avon's again
07.06.2019 from Ross I have about 3mm left on tyres grip in wet is ok but in dry a lot better a good value for money but not as safe as could be.
03.03.2019 from Paul Great grip in the wet and dry. Seems to be wearing well. Not noisy in the car and not noticed a reduction in fuel consumption.
21.02.2019 from Leo Very quiet. Seem to wear well and good road holding in all conditions. But, had these balanced twice. Had tracking on car done twice and still a little pull to left while driving. Tiny shudder over 110klm per hour. Garage tested car and its perfect. Had none of these issues with previous pirellis. So can it be the tyres??
