The Avon ZZ5 is an ultra-high performance tyre, and is well suited to high end sports cars. It has been a consistently popular choice with driving enthusiasts since its launch.
All Avon ZZ5 sizes carry an ‘A’ label rating for wet grip. This is courtesy of a reformulated compound and the utilisation of a high-dispersion silica tread.
Avon developed the tyre on many of Europe’s most famous race tracks. This includes the iconic Nurburgring, to build dynamic high-speed durability into the compound.
