I had these put on the front axle just after Christmas and they've been great for wet grip, wet braking and noise. They've even performed reasonably well on the recent snow. I can't speak for dry grip because I don't push that hard, and obviously too early to comment on wear rate.

I paid £2 per rim more than this deal and I am very happy with them.

So heat.

These are rated C for both efficient and wet grip performance, so without wishing to sound too negative, not sure these are particularly great tyres. Happy to be corrected if that's over simplistic..?

Just looks like the TyreShopper website, and same price. Go through Quidco for 4% cashback on Avon tyres at TyreShopper.

I'm now on the second set of these on my Saab although in 225/45/17 and I've found them to be a good mid-range tyre and predictable in all scenarios.

when I looked up the tyre ratings the fuel savings between an A rating and F rating would 60L over the lifetime of the tyre......... that convinced me its not worth spending extra getting an A rated tyre!

This is a brilliant price for branded tyres, fitted. Hot from me.

Not sure my arithmetic is brilliant, however, I can calculate that 60 litres = 13.19 gallons. @ five quid a gallon that=about 60 quid. I never considered the savings until I fitted my winter tyres, with a lower rating. My fuel consumption has increased noticeably over past couple of months. Just my tuppence worth.

Dont go just by tyre ratings. My first michelins (rated C) did 60k b4 needing to be changed. My replacement kuhmo's did 20k (rated A). Same mpg.

Agree, my winter tyres on my Passat get 50mpg, in my summer tyres 55 mpg+.

theyd be horrible half fiitted

Avon ZV5s are a lot better than Pirelli Cinturato P7s. I have two cars with these tyres fitted, both Summer tyres, the Pirellis are absolute crap.

Hmm these or the Barum Bravuris 2? The Barums seem to have better reviews.

I need two, but might get 4 if cheaper and flog the 2 part worns.

EDIT. The BArums have an F vs C for fuel economy. Thats that.

They would indeed (fully fitted means balanced as well).

60L = around £66 so by fitting the A rated ones over the Fs you save the cost of the tyre, Free tyres? Not worth it? Discuss......oO

The Avon ZV5 is a Ultra High Performance Summer tyre. Below is data from 85 tyre reviews averaging 77% over 1,026,355 miles driven

Fuel economy is always worst in cold weather as internal combustion engines are basically heat engines.
Winter tyres will increase fuel consumption, but sub-zero weather will increase it more.

that won't be just down to the tyres, the additives in the fuel that companies put in over winter make a difference, the cold weather and so takes longer for the engine to warm up I've still got my summer Dunlop tyres on and not yet put my winter Avon's on and my fuel consumption has gone down compared to summer time.

I don't disagree with what you're saying but the winter diesel fuel does have an impact, on mine at least

As with all these EU ratings, they're done in lab conditions which are about as far from reality as you can get. You're not going to see that much difference between different rated tyres, the fuel savings are all going to be about how heavy is your right foot and/or how much you pay per litre.

In my humble opinion, ignore the EU ratings, look for online reviews to see how the tyres actually behave.

Thanks. Just ordered for my Uber Passat Ultra turbo Mega Diesel Supersport GT.
