    Top 3 Avon Ice Touring Reviews

    Given 100% while driving a Fiat Scudo combi van (215/60 R16 T) on a combination of roads for 0 easy going miles
    For the first time I've bought winter tyres and thank god I did. Last year I had normal tyres on my Fiat Scudo van and the wheels just spun in very light snow. After having Avon Ice touring tyres fitted the van is moving freely through heavy now and no wheel spinning whatsoever. Totally worth the cost and mush safer, I'll be having them fitted every winter now

    Volkswagen Polo 1.4 16v (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 0 average miles
    I’ve had these tyres on my polo 6n2. The car hasn’t got the best handling, a lot of under steer and body roll but since I had these Avon ice tyres fitted the car straight away felt different to drive. Good grip and very good on wet surface also the tyres lasted for ages. I would give it 8 out of 10 would definitely recommend but if you want the best winter/all season tyres go for uniroyals rain sport 3 that have been developed by continental and Michelin they’re top tier

    oh my god! what a fantastic tyre. i have had these fitted for 2 weeks now so cant report on wear rates or dry road grip but the huge dump of snow we had this morning has caused me one massive problem. everybody else is now in my way! had to overtake a land rover discovery that was going too slow!on my 30 mile commute there was nothing that posed even the slightest problem. i even tried a more hilly route in places to see what would stop me but no, i just sailed up.
    i can not recommend this tyre more highly. fantastic.

    Given 81% while driving a Skoda Octavia (205/55 R16 H) on a combination of roads for 3,000 average miles
    Used on two different cars {both Octavias} minimal wear over three years. Changing from summers {bridgstone e300} the difference in grip is very noticeable. Slightly noiser on rough surfaces, but grip well.

    Given 63% while driving a Mazda 323 F lantis (BA) 1.5 (185/65 R14 T) on a combination of roads for 15,000 easy going miles
    Decent tyre for an old car.
    Doesn't provide a great grip in the dry, but it's quite normal for a snow tyre. In the wet these were a massime improvement compared to my old MICHELIN Energy Savers, but definately not a racing tyre (I think the compound is too hard)

    Anyway in the snow these tyres are fantastic. Really, they are magic: great traction in every condition. Last winter I was the only car moving in an icy parking lot, impressive.

    However I have agree with the review of another user of the ZT5 model: the behavior on uneven roads is very strange. There are strange movements of the steering wheel and you have to be ready to correct them quickly.

    good noise levels for a snow tyre

    Good winter tyres. No surprises, predictable, grippy. They do not appear to have worn too badly. Will buy again.

    Given 96% while driving a Volkswagen Passat 2.0TDI (215/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 5,000 spirited miles
    Excellent, Superb, awesome.
    My sedate Passat estate handled like a 4x4 in the recent snow and ice,I am now able to tackle snow covered hills with ease. If you are contemplating a set of winter boots then do it, wether you buy these or another make, get a branded set of winter tyres and you won't believe the difference. Wet grip is also excellent.
