Manufacturer: Avon
Tyre: ZT5 Tyres

Features:

The Avon ZT5 tyres are premium tyres developed specifically for family cars. The tyres offer high levels of performance in areas such as grip, handling and steering responsiveness and wet weather performance.

Exceptional wet weather performance: The tyre tread pattern incorporates three wide circumferential grooves and the inner tyre shoulders have an open design. These two factors combine to produce optimal wet weather performance. The circumferential grooves effectively deflect water accumulated on the surface towards the tyre shoulders. The tyre shoulders ensure that the water is effectively pushed away to reduce the risk of aquaplaning.
Extended wear resistance: Long term performance is ensured due to asymmetric tread design of the tyres. This has been implemented to not only improve driver safety in terms of enhanced grip, but also to offer an excellent value for money proposition due to the increased mileage capabilities.
Improved handling characteristics: The tyres offer exceptional grip in both wet and dry conditions. This increases your safety when driving as well as improving the responsiveness of your steering. Due to the enhanced grip levels, aspects such as cornering become much smoother and more stable irrespective of you speed you are driving at.
Reduced noise levels: Due to the incorporation of Avon’s proprietary noise reduction technology, noise levels are reduced significantly when driving. This ensures an improved and positive experience when driving.

Good choice for the 1.2 16v speedgear Punto. Surprisingly good in snow and ice for 'summer' tyres.

I purchased these tyres to replace the ones (same make & model) that had degraded prematurely (cracking of walls). I have heard nothing since from the manufacturer.

Have used these tyres for some time. They wear better than the original manufacturer fitted tyres. Good to buy a British design even if they are made in various places.

Super price, great service from your recommended fitting station. I would definitely buy these tyres again, in fact I have recently ordered two more for my Mother-in-law's Skoda.

Tread looks odd, having deep grooves in it. I suppose that's part of the construction.

George Smith - 7th September, 2013

These tyres appear to be much better in all aspects than either the tyres fitted by Suzuki when new or replacements purchased as "good tyres". The price for these 4 premium tyres was better than for other suppliers budjet tyres.

Smooth drive, they seem sturdy enough when cornering and breaking, no issues other than the balancing machine wasn't working at the garage when the tyres were initially fitted. Only found this out after we'd taken the car out onto the motorway. Garage was happy to rebalance them at no extra cost.

David Mackenzie - 8th August, 2013

These tyres provide a much less comfortable ride than the previously-fitted Continental tyres and overall ride comfort is much reduced. However,grip is good.

Antonio - 9th August, 2012

i would not recommend these tyres for a vehicle like mine that has good acceleration pulling power in first second and third gear,the grip is compromised by having to continuously letting off the acceleration power . I have another vehicle which is a escort van diesel 55,those of you that know that vehicle it is as slow as a four vehicle can get and on that vehicle these tyres work better i should know cause I've got Avons on there that work but on the connect van there no good,Only buy if your vehicle is slow or you are a slow driver.

Got these for my daughters Ford Ka and very impressed. Road noise is low and they feel very sure footed and responsive at a very good price. I am now buying some Avons for my car now that the dreadful Michelins have worn.

M.Jameson - 15th July, 2012

As a driving instructor I need reliable tyres due to different types of driving by my pupils from reasonable to extremes, these tyres have proved to be very good in all types of driving conditions (wet and dry) and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

James Elliott - 28th April, 2012

Avon are a good all round brand that have never let me down, I tried another brand that was in the same price range but didn't seem to be as good a make as Avon, I also use Avon on my van which does a lot of miles and they seem to last a lot longer than other makes of tyres

Fay Robertson - 16th April, 2012

Its really hard to make judgement as i need to get another 2 new tyres. The staff themselves where great, they took my car the same day i phoned, advised me the best product for my price range and had the car ready for pick up within the hour which was fantastic.

Nicole Carr - 4th March, 2012

I am no tyre expert, and it is difficult to judge as I only changed 2 out of the 4 tyres. In general these were at a great price for an above average tyre, and we have had no complaints with Avon. Highly recommended.

Howard Williams - 23rd February, 2012

Excellent quality and value for money

Antonio - 14th February, 2012

the first 50 percent of the tyre lasts a lot longer than the rest of the life of the tyre.when im over 50 percent tyre wear i find my vehicle can spin the front wheels on exceleration to easily from first gear.i dont feel safe with them in the winter when passed the 50 percent wear mark in the winter.i definately would not recommend them for common motorway journeys as the steering becomes too light.

Steph - 27th January, 2012

These tyres have been excellent value for money and high quality...definately up there competing with the best like Goodyear and Pirelli in my opinion but still leaving me change in my purse.Happy days :)

John Jeram-Silvey - 19th January, 2012

Excellent value tyre. I did a lot of research before buying these and I was not disappointed. I was on a budget but it does not appear to have been compromised by the price of these tyres. The road noise was significantly lower than my previous tyres, the grip is far superior and they do not aquaplane even at 70mph along torrentially rain soaked M27. Also the service from National Tyres was excellent as usual!! Highly recommended!!

David Rouse - 16th August, 2011

These are the best tyres I have ever had on the front of the car. They suit it very well. I always use Avon tyres whenever possible - including on our Land Rover County V8. The annual mileage given is about average with this car but sometimes it is quite a bit more. It is not the only car I use - hence the modest total quoted.

stuart wishart - 14th June, 2011

previously had avon cr232 and was delighted with them for the price, mileage and grip. With the amazing discounts available from this company, i went for the next level up of tyres and was even more surprised with the improvements over previous tyres, which were very good! Will be using the service regularly now for all the company fleet.
