Has anyone used Avon ZX7 tyres on their Q5's, if so what were your views ?
Hi DibsWii do so far not noticed any difference in road noise and as for grip the old tyres were passed their best so can not tell.
The brakes on the SQ5 are really very good. I don't have many unexpected heavy braking moments, but I do take your point.It's more the straight line stopping power that I worry about with a big, heavy car.
I imagine most people don't push the lateral grip of their Q5 very hard, but those unexpected heavy braking moments are the ones that concern me.
Having said that, I had Avon's on my old TT and couldn't tell any difference from the Pirelli's that were specced from new. I do wonder how much tyre technology is just scaremongering.
It seems self evident that a tyre with better mechanical grip will have a higher wear rate? I would rather trade better grip for longer life.On revews the Avon ZX7 are very bad for wear mileage.
