Top Avon WV7 Review

Given 90% 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 83% while driving a Audi S3 (225/40 R18) on mostly motorways for 3,000 average miles
Using these tyres on a 310bhp Audi S3 so a bit more power than your usual car. So far these tyres have been excellent to say how cheap they were compared to the premium offerings.

Grip in all weather conditions is good, launching the car full throttle traction is acceptable though you can expect some traction control kicking in. Noticed no problems braking and cornering in wet and cold conditions and the car doesn't feel alot different to the summer tyres I had on before (Pirelli P-Zero's)

For the price these are faultless, picked up a set of 4 fully fitted from ATS for £310. It would of been closer to £500 for a premium set. Would definitely recommend and would buy these again.

Given 36% while driving a Skoda SuperB II 4x4 3.6L DSG (225/45 R18 V) on mostly country roads for 1,000 average miles
Bought these for a Skoda Superb 3.6 V6 4x4 saloon and was sorely disappointed with their inclement weather grip. Comfortable enough to drive on, but traction control comes on a lot with these fitted! Have checked all tyre pressures and driving to the conditions.

These are the best tyres in the world. Watch now!
Given 93% while driving a Hyundai i30 (225/45 R17) on for 2,000 miles
Been driving all over this week in deep snow and ice up steep hills and never let me down

Given 92% while driving a Volkswagen Sharan SE 2.0TDi (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 1,500 average miles
Limited review on the grounds that I have only completed 1500 miles to the Alps and back. Car was fully laden (5 people, roofbox and snowboard equipment/luggage. Road noise was not an issue, VW Sharan handled without issue throughout the trip and had no need for snow chains in resort while others all used chains!! We had plenty of snow in resort and the trip down from resort was cold and icy which these tyres dealt with just fine. Hard to comment on fuel consumption as we had the roofbox.

Given 94% while driving a Subaru Forester sti (245/45 R17 V) on mostly country roads for 2,000 spirited miles
Bought these on a hunch that they might be better than a lot of winter tyres in the wet/dry (which compose 90% of British winter weather) and indeed they are. However they're also very good in winter conditions with excellent grip on fresh and frozen snow and ice, climbing a 1 in 6 hill in fresh snow was no problem, as was stopping on black ice. Their outstanding characteristic is the steering feedback, better than most winter tyres (Nokian, Vredestein) that I've run - though obviously won't be as good as a HP summer tyre, due to isolated tread blocks and loads of sipes - and the sidewalls are stiff enough to make the car feel controlled and give you confidence when pushing through the corners. And lastly they're suprisingly quiet for a winter tyre too, less high frequency noise than the previous summer tyres I ran. All in all a very competent tyre at a decent price to boot, and the folk at Avon are most helpful with information.
