Ultra-high performance from Avon ZZ5


8

The Avon ZZ5 tyres are premium high performance tyres suitable for passenger cars. The tyres are associated with an ultra-high performance, great grip in both dry and wet conditions and also excellent steering responsiveness.

Enhanced steering responsiveness: These tyres are performance-focused tyres suitable for high end sports cars. The asymmetric tread design contributes significantly towards offering excellent grip which helps ensure superior handling. These tyres offer fantastic steering response to enable a stable and effective driving experience.
Minimised noise levels: To ensure maximum comfort when driving, these tyres aim to offer high performance at a reduced rate of decibels. You can be confident of an improved driving experience due to the reduced tyre noise.
Reduced stopping distances: Within the asymmetric tread design, the inner shoulders are optimised to increase contact pressure. Along with the central tread, where the continuous circumferential grooves efficiently displace water, this design reduces the risk of aquaplaning. Overall, braking distances are reduced to ensure your safety when driving in wet conditions.

This pattern may have options that are suited for Audi, Bentley, Ferrari, Chrysler, Porsche, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz or BMW vehicles. This pattern may have extra-load capabilities or be available as a Run Flat. Please check for the appropriate symbols in the tyre search results.

A great tyre for the price. Having used more expensive brands previously, this tyre performs just as well and at the price is definitely worth the investment. The tread does wear faster than more premium brands, but you'd expect that for the price difference!

great dry grip with good feedback and road-holding. even been around the San bernadino pass and the san gotthard pass in Switzerland and they were brilliant.

they do not like low temps and can be a little snappy on the back if it is frosty but i rarely use the car in those conditions

I had just purchased this car and discovered all 4 tyres were different. As soon as I had 4 new Avon tyres fitted to it the difference was unbelievable. It was a much smoother ride and much quieter. It felt like a totally different vehicle. Well Pleased.

Nothing to dislike.

If Avon could do road surfaces, every motorist would love them. These tyres would last a lot longer if it was not for the ridiculous state of Scottish roads.

Had two Avons fitted to the rear some time ago and they represented good value and quality. When it came to renew the front tyres I didn't hesitate in chosing Avon again as they seem a quality tyre at an affordable price

Been using the services of National Tyres and Autocare for a few years now. Purchased 2 of these tyres earlier in the year and paid just about £350. Incredibly expensive I thought at the time but reassured that they were good tyres. Returned today and encouraged to have the same tyres and to have the balancing sorted out. All in all another financial kick in the teeth and just short of £400. The staff assured me I was getting a good deal and each tyre was valued at £186.50 on the invoice. Sadly, when I returned home and spent some time on the internet I realised I could get exactly the same tyres and fitted for less than £100. My fault for not shopping around and trusting Dick Turpin and his merry men at National Tyres in Blackburn. To add insult to injury I then realised that I could buy the same tyre online from Dick for just over £100. I am obviously a mug.....a mug that will never shop with National Tyres again.....please do likewise.

None so far.

They were new tyres

Since the new tyres were fitted the steering shakes at about 60 mph but Nationwide don't appear to be able to resolve the problem which wasn't there with the old tyres.

Ever since these tyres were fitted, the front wheels don't feel balanced and the steering wheel shakes between 60 and 70 mph. Having taken the car back to National to re-balance they don't appear to be able to rectify the problem and yet the wheels were perfectly balanced before with the old tyres.

I have used Contis and Pirelli P zeros previously and the car was unstable at high speeds in the wet and dry and no confidence in them to get me where I'm going. With these Avons I can honestly say the cars transformed. I drive fast country roads a lot and the car goes now like its on rails. under hard Accelleration te car only slightly spins for a moment and then takes off. I'm at over 200bhp with no weight which most tyres would struggle to deal with that. These do not surprisingly. They will now be the only tyres being used on this car and the others now going forward.

No dislikes yet with these tyres to be honest.

Mid range brand therefore not ridiculously expensive as the ones recommended by Mercedes. Have got good tyre wear from the various Avon sets i have had over the years. The car drives fine on them - no dramas. Plus they have stayed round, unlike a previous set of Pirellis which flat spotted soon after buying and resulted in lots of steering wheel vibration.

Nothing in particular, I think they are a good tyre for a reasonable price.

They were a good price and although the price is similar to mid range tyres in other brands, the Avon tyres seem to have premium performance.

The se tyres do not feel quite as good in fast cornering or in wet grip as the Michelin Primacy 3s that I always used in the past, also the wear is not as good. However, given the substantial difference in price, I do not regard this as being unreasonable. It could not be said that the Avons are a cause for concern and I have never felt that I have lost control, or that there has been any risk, just that the Michelins inspired more confidence.

Good quality British tyres that have exceeded their mileage range.

I've had a couple of cases where they've worn badly (and not due to tracking issues).

I previously always replaced Continentals with Continentals ( German Car so German Tyres!). Anyway they also always seemed to wear quickly and therefore decided to buy British with Avon. So glad I made the leap of faith. I feel more response in the steering and after the first 100 miles they have given a much smoother ride. Also after the recent deluge I have total confidence in their ability to cope with wet/aquaplane problems that I can't avoid. ( Late at night sudden standing water and a car coming the other way).
