Avon ZV5 XL Tyres – For a Quiet Ride on Performance Enhanced Heavier Vehicles
When you need high performance tyres for your sports car or MPV that can adequately support high speeds and heavy loads, look no further than the Avon ZV5 XL tyres.
Manufactured by Avon Tyres, the Avon ZV5 XL tyres are the reinforced ‘Xtra Load’ (XL) version of the company’s popular high performance Avon ZV5 tyres. The advantage of the ZV5 XL tyres is that they offer higher load carrying capacity for the same size as the standard tyres.
A Detailed Understanding of the XL and SL (Standard Load) Avon ZV5 tyres
Consider these two sizes of the Avon ZV5 tyres:
225/45R17 91Y and 225/45R17 XL 94V
As you can see both tyres are identical all aspects of size except the load index that is 91 in the standard tyre and 94 in the XL tyre.
The load index of 91 translates into a weight of 615kg per tyre, while the 94 load index indicates that each tyre can support a maximum of 670 kg. Thus by simply switching to XL tyres (of the same size) you can get additional 55kg load capacity per tyre, without the need for costly upgrading of alloys to fit bigger tyres.
Avon ZV5 XL Tyres – An Overview of Performance
The Avon ZV5 XL tyres deliver exceptional performance on the following parameters.
- Grip and Braking Response
The asymmetric tread pattern of the Avon ZV5 XL tyres are equipped with specially designed shoulder blocks, which provide better grip on dry surface.
For optimal wet grip, the tread pattern is enhanced with wide open circumferential grooves that effectively displace water from the contact patch. The tread blocks also contain multiple sipes, which help in water deflection.
As a result of these factors, the Avon ZV5 XL tyres are extremely responsive to braking, which is manifested as reduced braking distances, an obvious safety advantage.
Because of effective water deflection by the grooves, the Avon ZV5 XL tyres offer superior wet weather performance due to reduced risk of aquaplaning.
- Handling and Steering Responsiveness
The ‘best-in-class’ handling and steering responsiveness of the Avon ZV5 XL tyres can be attributed to the unique ‘Tri-arc’ tread pattern, which creates a uniform contact area between the tyre tread and the road surface.
This coupled with a reinforced sidewall construction delivers sharper steering response in the Avon ZV5 XL tyres.
Tyre noise occurs due to the resistance of the tread pattern to the wind and other external factors.
Avon uses computer software to optimise the tread pattern in such a way that this resistance is reduced, producing one of the quietest tyres in its class.
