  • Good wet braking, especially at warmer temperatures, good subjective handling in the dry and wet, low external noise.
  • Poor performance in snow, highest rolling resistance on test.
  • The Avon AS7 Gen-2 is a significant step ahead of the budget tyre, and has good grip in the wet, but it had poor performance in every snow test making this a tyre more suited to the milder winter climate.

Given 82% while driving a Subaru 2010 Forester Diesel (215/60 R17) on a combination of roads for 800 average miles
these replaced a set of Toyo Proxes CF2, Early days but so far found an improvement with good grip and braking in the dry and especially the wet, they do appear a little noisy on rougher tarmac compared to the Toyo, and despite the review test my MPG has improved since fitting, I will update when i have some more miles and the weather cools

Given 41% while driving a Peugeot Traveller 2019 model (225/55 R17) on mostly motorways for 200 easy going miles
Changed 4 tyres and all of them had suspicious small verical bulges (not the tyre connection notch) The tyre technician said it is normal... Already 200 miles they are still ok just little steering well vibrations over 65 miles

Given 88% while driving a Peugeot 207 1.6hdi 9Sport) (195/55 R16) on mostly country roads for 17,000 miles
I fitted a full set fitted to my winter car (peugeot 207 1.6 hdi) which I use for commuting via the best roads in Wales to work and back each week (115 miles each way via A roads, by roads, twisty roads, wet roads & muddy roads).
The tyres do make the car feel slightly more 'floaty' in the bends but other than that they are awesome tyres and refuse to let go. I've hammered the hell out of these tyres, the rears still look like they were fitted yesterday and the fronts are just on the verge of needing to be changed (12 months & 17k miles).
All in all, very impressive and surprised I managed to get the mileage on the the fronts given they are softer than summer tyres.

Given 51% while driving a Volvo s60 D5 (163) (205/55 R16) on mostly country roads for 7,000 spirited miles
Had these fitted in July 2022 on a deal (still not worth it). When new, better than budget tyres in the wet, competent enough for some spirited driving along country road (which is most of my journeys). Currently along some muddy and icy lanes as well as town driving. Will grip enough under heavy braking. That's where the good bits end. These tyres lasted 6-7 months and now they're on the markers. To add insult to injury my fuel economy has dropped 5mpg since having them fitted. These last few weeks they have been bordering on dangerous, spinning up even in the slightest bit of damp, never had a tyre let go like that with a bit of tread left on it. Suffice to say they were pretty ropey in the recent icy conditions. Avoid at all costs.

Given 48% while driving a BMW 320d touring (225/50 R17) on mostly country roads for 3,000 spirited miles
Having previously switched to winter tyres but with the season getting milder, this year I went for these all season offerings from Avon. Truly disappointed. OK on dry roads regardless of temp & excellent in proper wet, otherwise rubbish. Milder damp roads they're truly terrible, with little effort it's easy to get the car out of shape, same can be said for the ice & light snow I've experienced. Suspect my summers would perform just as well, if not better...
