Questions and Answers for the Avon ZZ5

2018-03-07 - Do you know if AVON ever put their car tyres forward for comparison against their rivals? I believe Avon to be a respected British tyre company but i can never seem to find them appear in the tyre tests. Because i want to support British companies i have 2 cars both with full sets of avon ZZ5 which i find to be excellent but it troubles me that i cant see them reviewed against direct rivals Do they have something to hide?

The Avon ZZ5 is quite an old tyre now. If you look at a newer pattern, such as the Avon ZV7, it has been tested and scores comparatively well for its price point.

Given 83% while driving a Ford Fiesta ST180 (205/40 R17 R) on mostly town for 500 spirited miles
I Have a Fiesta ST180 and have done 500 miles at moment these are a lot better than the Potenza fitted £69 each at National Tyres.

Each time I buy a car invariably it is fitted with Pirelli / Bridgestone tyres and I've learnt to change to Avon's when it's time to change tyres. Latest car came with Pirelli P Zero, a good tyre especially in the dry, but with 20 inch wheels they were too hard and a noisy. Tendency to find every little road imperfection and I guessed the car would feel better on Avons and it does, a little reduced noise and a significant improved ride quality. I don't know if it's because they are made in UK but Avon's suit British climate and roads, they seem to be more flexible in cold wet weather than many brands which gives you very good assurance and grip. They hold on well in wet or dry, never had a problem with wheelspin at junctions on wet roads where you need to pull out quickly. Overall I cannot fault the tyres and of course they are significantly less expensive than other brands. Wear not fully tested yet on these ZZ5s hence lower score, but I know from previous Avon's wear isn't normally an issue.

Given 44% while driving a Vauxhall Insignia CDTI SRI 160 (245/40 R19) on a combination of roads for 30,000 average miles
Typical Avon tyres, cracked and split before the tread is even near the 3.0mm limit to generate an MOT advisory. Tyres seemed to create a lot of road noise through the car, number of people commented on the constant droning noise from the rear wheels which is where the tyres were fit. Have had similar cracking and splitting with Avons before, certainly wouldn't ever buy them again.

Given 87% while driving a Audi A6 Allroad 3.0 TDI (245/45 R18 V) on mostly country roads for 7,000 average miles
Pleased with these tyres. Used on a heavy Audi A6 Quattro the fronts are obviously wearing quicker but at this rate I am estimating 15k on fronts to wear indicator and 21k rears. Not used in snow yet but best performance in wet. Slight drift when new in dry but as bedding in they're the best dry grip tyres I've used when compared to Michelin, Pirelli and Continental. I would buy again but perhaps go for the all season tyres from Avon due to living innorth of Scotland.
