      and over 70% of the sizes in the range have a green label for Rolling Resistance
  • ZX7

    An ultra-high performance SUV tyre with 'A' grade wet grip - the perfect choice for dirvers who demand the best.

    • Unique asymmetric tread pattern aids wet grip and resists aquaplaning
    • 3D sipes with interlocking three-dimensional points improve handline and tyre wear
    • Coupled silica compound enhances wet grip
    • Spring venting design for a cleaner and higher quality tyre appearance
    • Rim protector - extended flange protects alloy wheels from rim damange and scuffing
    • Available in a range of fitments from 16" to 21" rim diameters with H, V, W and Y speed ratings
  • ZV7

    A high performance summer tyre with 'A' grade wet grip. For drivers who want the best combination of performance and safety.

    • Large circumferential grooves clear water quickly to reduce aquaplaning
    • New tread pattern featuring 3D sipes that help the tyre warm up and optimise wet grip
    • New polymer technology and advanced mixing techniques provide better wet and dry grip, reducing rolling resistance and greater fuel efficiency
    • Rim flange protector helps to minimise kerb damage to alloy wheels*
    • New noise reducing feature - reduces noise from tyre/road interaction
    • Available in a wide range of fitments from 15" to 18" rim diameters with V, W and Y speed rating

    *A rim flange protector is designed to protect the flange area - not the whole wheel. Many modern wheel designs may have domed outward designs well beyond the flange

History of Avon tyres

Avon was formed in 1885, when Messrs. Brown and Margetson turned a former cloth mill into a rubber goods factory. As the century turned, they spotted a new opportunity: pneumatic tyres for motorcars.

Come 1933 and Avon Tyres is in full stride: the company successfully floats on the stock exchange and Rolls-Royce specifies our tyres as standard equipment.

Growth is rapid. In fact, modernisation sees output double by 1956 and expand our contracts supplying tyres to many British car marques. A long line of sporting success begins on the race track. New formulas are developed to increased ‘cling' in the 1960s, and Avon creates of some of the World's first radial tyres.

The company is now active in over 150 motorsport championships worldwide and the
technology and knowhow used in our race tyres is based on our DNA and across to
our road tyre ranges.
