Volvo S90 Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Avon ZZ5 given 99% (255-35-20-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 3000 average miles
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.

Writing about the Michelin Primacy 3 given 76% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 6000 spirited miles
Had these tyres for 6k miles. Very competent tyres in dry and wet conditions. I would find them better than the flagship Hankook sports tyres I had on the E class.

However, I don't know if it is the car or the tyres. Comfort and ride is not great and the tyres feel very differently depending on the PSI.
