(Akron/Tire Review) In a consumer survey conducted by The Tire Rack, Cooper Tire & Rubber Co’s Avon Tech M500 and Tech M550 A/S tires earned top ratings by UHP summer and UHP all-season tyre owners.
Some 95,000 respondents were asked to rate their tyres according to the following criteria: traction in dry, wet and snowy conditions, cornering stability, steering response, ride and noise comfort, resistance to hydroplaning and tread wear. In the UHP summer category, 40 tyre lines from 12 major tire brands were rated, according to The Tire Rack.
Avon owners, according to The Tire Rack survey, said they would buy the same tires again. The Avon line, originally available in European markets, was launched in North America in May 2004.
