    Avon ZV7 Tyres

    I have just replaced the boots on all 4 corners (2009 swift sport) OE size is 195/45/17 88 w but I decided to go for some 205`s , did some shopping about and went to see an old mate who is manager of my local ATS having decided I wanted A rated wet grip, good rating for rolling resistance/MPG and nothing over 70 DB ,and under £90 a corner, ended up narrowing search down to Avon ZV7s 205 45 17 88w nitrogen filled , with a bit of mates discount I ended up parting with just £278 all in , happy days , as soon as I drove away I could feel a real difference in ride quality over the Falken/Goodyear tyres that I had replaced , the car feels really planted to the road , nice amount of "feel" through the wheel , quiet too and looks better with the wider rubber plus extra rim protection , highly recommend these tyres. my old rear Goodyears were a bit knackered but the Falkens on the front had only done 5k so I have kept them to sell on, so anyone local to Guildford surrey who fancies a pair of good tyres cheap drop me a PM.

    I believe the OE spec is 195 45 17 81W
    Seems 84W is the closest one can get to this load rating if going for 205 40 or 45 profile.
