Avon Tyres are preparing for the forthcoming winter with a selection of winter tyres. The company produces winter tyres for a variety of vehicles. Their Ranger Ice tyres are designed for the four wheel drive market, while their Ice Touring ST range is built for high performance cars. The company also produces a selection of winter tyres for small to medium sized cars.
Demand for winter tyres is on the increase, as motorists become more aware of their importance for safe driving in cold conditions. The Avon Ranger Ice is designed to meet the needs of 4×4 drivers driving on snow and ice. Its aggressive tread pattern gives excellent traction in the most difficult conditions, and the high silica content of the tyre compound keeps the wheel supple, even at low temperatures.
The growing popularity of high performance cars has caused Avon to look at its offerings in this sector. Their range of winter tyres are available in a variety of profiles and speed ratings, enabling motorists to enjoy high performance driving with increased safety in cold, wintry conditions. The Avon Ice Touring ST is rated for “Severe Snow Conditions” and carries M+S (mud and snow) markings. The high silica content of the tread compound means the tyres enjoy a low glass transition temperature, which keeps the tyre flexible at temperatures below 7 degrees centigrade.
For small to medium cars Avon offer the Ice Touring T, which has a tread pattern designed to maximize grip in wet/snowy conditions. It has the same high silica content, ensuring efficiency in cold weather.
Whatever the vehicle, Avon now has something to offer that will enhance safety in whatever conditions the winter throws our way.
