Avon ZZ3s

I need a new set of donuts and the ZZ3s come out as the best price on most of the websites ....

So I'm wondering if you have them (or have had them) fitted to your 156 and what you think of them - handling, wear, noise, etc.

thanks

Re: Avon ZZ3s

I've voted 'No' as I wouldn't normally think of them as an option. You best thing to do though it to find a copy of Autocar's most recent tyre test.

Re: Avon ZZ3s

The last couple of sets have been SP8000s ... they lasted just over 2 years (around 20000 miles) and have been good in all weathers. They would have lasted longer but for Alfa's chocolate bushes.

But they don't make them anymore .... I'm also thinking about the Sport 01s .... look good and I've never had a problem with a Dunlop.

I used to swear by Pirelli's but the P6000s appear to be too hard and don't seem to suit the 156 ... P7s and PZeros are a tad too expensive.

Re: Avon ZZ3s

If the Avon lady will come to fit them personally, I'll think about replacing the Pirellis...

I use Michelin, Goodyear or Dunlop. Never tried the Avon's...

But they do a good calendar, though

Re: Avon ZZ3s

I used to have Pirelli P7000 on my 155, while they didn't last very long on the front, about 12,000 miles, they were no worse than Bridgestone S02's.

However, they didn't do the P7000's in the right size for my 156 so I tried a few others. P6's last quite well, but P7's suit the car better. I was going to try P Zero-Nero's but when I last had to get new tyres they didn't have them in stock, so I got some more P7's - although I suspect the P Zero-Nero's wouldn't last any longer than the P7000's
