Avon tyres achieved an impressive endorsement from a pair of adventurers who crossed a third of the world on a single set of CR322 rubber.
Ross Smallcombe and Seb Cnossen, who formed Team Mighty Wight, travelled 8,230 miles on the Mongolian Rally and did not encounter a single problem with their tyres.
The trip took in some of the world’s toughest terrains, including potholed, unmade roads, waterways and off-road areas
But the CR322 tyres offered unfailing performance. Ross said: They’re amazing tyres.
“So many tyres were supposedly better suited to the terrain, but by the end of the trip everyone wanted Avon tyres.
“Teams paid hundreds of pounds for specialist tyres, rally tyres, desert tyres and off-road tyres. People couldn’t believe we didn’t even get a puncture, when their tyres were getting ripped to shreds.
“We travelled over mountains with no roads, deserts in 50C heat, crossed rivers that were as deep as our bonnet, and even jumped ditches when necessary.
“The tyres barely looked worn when we crossed the finish line.”
The Avon CR322 tyre is a traditional tyre aimed at the small to mid-sized family car or light van, billed as a “fuel saver”. It uses a unique compound that aids economy and prolongs tyre life.
