This vehicle is only used on short local trips rural and town with very varied road conditions from flooded roads to mud conditions so a good overall performance is required. Tyre Shopper enables me to afford good premium tyres.

Noise level could well be road surface.Only noisy when window is open.I only changed one tyre but would get these again as the tread seems to have stayed "meaty".

Avon ZT5 XL Tyres –Your Best Choice when You Want Increased Load Capacity

The Avon ZT5 XL tyres are high performance car tyres manufactured by Avon Tyres and are best suited for heavier vehicles or vehicles that carry heavier loads in the course of regular usage.

The tyres are designed to produce superior wet weather performance and offer a comfortable ride with reduced noise levels.

The Avon ZT5 XL tyres are of course a reinforced version of the regular Avon ZT5 tyres. The latter are associated with lower load carrying capacity.

Differences between XL and SL (Standard Load) Tyres

The maximum load a tyre can carry depends on its size and the tyre pressure. Larger tyres and tyres that can be inflated to higher pressures can naturally support greater loads.

The Avon ZT5 (SL) and the Avon ZT5 XL tyres are of the same size, but their construction differs slightly, so that the latter can be inflated to higher pressures and thus can support greater loads as compared to the regular Avon ZT5 tyres.

In general for passenger tyres, SL tyres can be inflated to a maximum pressure of 35psi, while the XL tyres can support a maximum pressure of 41 psi and so maximum load carrying capacity varies. (These figures differ slightly with light truck tyres).

Avon ZT5 XL Tyres - Performance on Various Parameters

  • Handling Characteristics

The Avon ZT5 XL tyres incorporate a reinforced sidewall construction, which improves the handling characteristics at heavier loads, giving greater stability and control during cornering. The standard tyres are associated with softer feel as compared to the XL tyres.

  • Wet Weather Performance

The Avon ZT5 XL tyres tread pattern incorporates 3 wide circumferential grooves, which effectively deflect water in the contact patch, ensuring that the risk of aquaplaning is greatly reduced. Thus you are assured of a safe drive on wet surfaces with minimal risk of skidding.

  • Grip

Because of the reinforced sidewall construction, the Avon ZT5 XL tyres are associated with maximised grip on wet and dry surfaces.

  • Noise Levels

Avon’s proprietary ‘Optinoise’ technology kicks in, minimising noise levels significantly. Noise is a significant factor while driving heavier vehicles and with the Avon ZT5 XL tyres, you are assured of a quiet and peaceful ride at all times.
