Volvo S90 R Design Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Avon WV7 given 87% (225-55-17-V)
Driving on mostly country roads for 7000 spirited miles
Really happy with my Avon WV7 winter tyres, have used them for the last two winters and can’t finding anything to fault.

I have used winter tyres for years and have owned sets from Goodyear, Vredestiein, Nokian and Avon (ice touring ST’s). I can honestly say the Avon’s are very underrated and represent superb value for money. Their performance certainly stands shoulder to shoulder with the premium brands.

My present summer tyres are Michelin Primacy 3’s and these Avon’s offer just as much comfort and steering feedback as the Michelin’s. The Avon’s perform better on wet roads (and are certainly better at dealing with standing water than the Michelin’s) as you would expect from a winter tyre. Where the Avon’s really impress however is with their ability on the warmer days of winter (10+ degrees celsius). On these days they perform very much like the Michelin’s, certainly the best of any winter tyre I have used to date.

I therefore suspected this may impact on their snow/ice performance but no, they seem to cope admirably in these conditions too. I drive several miles on ungritted (and hilly) rural roads each day and the WV7’s are a very balanced tyre. I’ve never got stuck or felt close to losing control so they have all the winter abilities I require.

Well done Avon.
