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 has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

24.03.2020 from Ricky Was warned against this make and model by a friend in kwik fit who said the tyres perish and crack along the tread and I’m aft he was right. I only ignored his advice because they were cheap.
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.
