  1. Actually its the Brands Performance Range hence why £60-70 but for some reason we class them as mid range in comparison with the more we’ll known brand. I am really happy with Avon’s and will never go back to the expensive tyres with the branded logos. You say £72 for a branded may be that’s for just the front tyre as the rear is over £100 each side. I saw a Mercedes E63 AMG the other day with SAVA tyres. These are so cheap but made by Dunlop.
  2. @JamesIS220 Yeah they great and I would recommend the Avon ZV7. Thanks to the UK weather I have had the chance to experience them in heavy rain and sun, and they handle very well. the ride is much better and softer also at full lock I don’t get the hopping anymore so bonus.
  3. @normski2 funny you did this write up as I just logged in to ask if anyone else is noticing the sluggish close on the passenger side folding mirrors and saw your post. I noticed my passenger side mirror making a struggling noise when folding up and thought maybe some one has pushed or played with my mirrors. I have the P40 auto fold up on locking so thought maybe that was on its way out and was not looking forward to redoing the job again. Your post will come handy so will attempt to WD40 the motors this weekend if the weather is good. Thank you.
  4. You said Debica was made in Poland, they are from the Dunlop group. I went for Avon’s in the end. Hiqonline sell Sava tyres for cheap, also made by Dunlop and excellent ratings. I am well happy with my Avon’s!
  5. UPDATE: So I must say the Avon Tyres are the best I have tried compared to Dunlop Sport Maxx RT and my previous Bridgestone Potenza. The grip is excellent in the dry and recently tried in the rain and was excellent too. the ride is much softer which I like and noise levels are hugely reduced. My car feels like it’s gliding over the road, living it! AThe luxury feel is back - Highly recommended! I am getting the rears next weekend can’t wait. Was going to put the Azon ZV7’s in the parts section as recommended but it’s already there. Seriously give it a go, you won’t be disappointed. Most importantly there is no more hopping on full lick for me, tried everything and still not hopping 😁
  6. Right..just saw an Aston Martin with Avon tyres I’m all booked in for fronts this weekend at ATS for £134 fitted for the pair. Then will do rears next month! Thank you for all the advise guys, will let you know how I get on.
  7. @Linas.P that’s why I asked for advise as Debica seem to be very good in ratings and made by popular brand. The fronts can be bought for £53 each and rear £65 from TyreLeader and then fitting will be on top. I myself might just go with Avon’s and front and tears come at a reasonable price for all comers fitted at ATS they price match as well. Sometimes black circles have offer though like this week Kumho are on offer.
  8. Actually in total it’s not a saving of £40 it so by going for Dunlop compared to Avon’s as the rear 245 is much. Ore expensive. Avon’s have some really good reviews. There is slight competition for me when choosing Dunlop Sport Maxx RT over Goodyear F1 or Efficientgrip
  9. Thanks for the reply’s guys. Will it be worth giving Lexus a call for tyres? £65 for Kumho’s fitted is very good price @is200 Newbie where is that from?
  10. Oh I thought Dunlop is soft rubber. ATS guy told me Bridgestone were hard rubber. Glad your enjoying your Dunlop’s
  11. @Linas.P With your Dunlop’s Sport Max do you notice slip when on full lock? I noticed this and hence went for Bridgestone after the guy in ATS said the Dunlop use soft rubber.
  12. I know I sound like a right tramp trying to save £20-30 but when you add all four tyres it’s a difference of saving over £100 going for budget tyres. The high end cars I am talking about with **** tyres are fresh chauffeur 67 plates for large corporate companies CEO’s. I think I will go for Avon Z7 next week for the front and next month I will do the rears. Thanks for your help.
  13. Yeah fitting and balancing is £10 per tyre. I work in Liverpool Street in the City and for past week have been noticing the Mercs and 7series BMWs using brand of tyres I never heard of such as Sava, Rotalla and another I thing Farod or something. Maybe they come from factory like this.
  14. Dunlop is £89 each (£178 pair) for front but Rotalla is £80 for the pair for the front, and £90 was the price I got for the pair rear. I would normally not thick twice and just go for my brands like I always do..
  15. Thanks @Linas.P Debica is part of Goodyear as mentioned on their global website: https://www.goodyear.eu/corporate_emea/our-company/our-brands.jsp Rotalla is sold everywhere and not just a BlackCirle own brand...there are some feed back on TyreGuru
