Top Avon WV7 Review

Given 90% (breakdown) while driving a Volvo 2.0 T5 Saloon (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 5,000 spirited miles
I was very surprised at how good these tyres were in the cold wet and snow (snow once for about 20 miles), especially considering that they're classed as mid priced.

I drove from Kent to Glasgow and back once per month throughout the winter and found these tyres to be confidence inspiring in all weathers. I took them off when the weather turned fine again, just to save them for further winters although, I found them to provide excellent feedback and grip in the spring/warmish months too.

I was also surprised at how little they had worn over 5000 miles. They will be good for at least two more winters, maybe more.

Given 86% (breakdown) while driving a Toyota Auris (195/65 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 1,500 average miles
Well, so far in the dry and wet these are pretty good and it will be good to see how they are in snow if we get some. They have been around towns, rural roads and motorways and you almost forget you have winters on as they drive so well and are pretty quiet. These Avon's were bought to do the job well, without fuss and last well. They are a new tyre this winter (although probably the Cooper WeatherMaster) so there were no reviews to check out beforehand. This probably contributed to the very good prices available. From what I have seen so far I would recommend them.
I have run various vehicles on various winters or all seasons since 2008 and this November I put these WV7 winters on the Toyota. I also put Pirelli all season self seal on the Seat and Toyo Celsius all weather on the mini.
So far I haven't been disappointed with any of them in the dry, wet and morning frost, although the Toyos and Pirellis really need another 500 miles or so on their tyres for to bed in fully.
