    Default Avon ZZ Tyres

    Guys,

    Whats your opinions on Avon ZZ3 tyres?

    I am not quite ready for new tyres yet, maybe another 2 months, but I have been offered 4 x Avon ZZ3 235 35 ZR 19" tyres for £375.00. These also have the correct 91Y load index.

    I currently have Dunlop SP Sports and can't fault them (21000 miles and still 4mm left).

    I am thinking of buying these and storing them until I am ready.

    Your thoughts?

    I had ZZ3's on my old Vec B SRi and rated them really highly. They do tend to wear out very quickly, but they are great in both the wet and dry.

    Sounds like a good price to me Matt. Have you read any reviews on the tyres?

    Thats what worries me, a small saving now but need to change early.

    My old Vectra SRi had Conti's and I got 25000 miles out of them, there were the actual 19" wheels I kept for the Signum.

    My last set of fronts (just been changed) were Avons, (90% sure they were ZZ3ís) can't fault their performance, very impressed with them in all conditions, but yeah, they do wear very quickly.
    My fronts probably get as hard a life as anyoneís, but these didnít even make 10k miles !!! (but then I canít remember the last time one of my tires made 20k miles, lol)

    Doesn't Avon send old ladies round and put their catalogues through your door?

    I know we've done this one to death, but shouldnt a Signum 3.0 be fitted with extra load tyres because of the weight? Shouldnt they have 94Y or 95Y fitted?

Sold the wheel's to someone down the road to go on a corsa they knocked the front tyres out cos the tracking was out . I do like Avon tyre just make shore the tracking is ok you can't wrong
