Avon launches AV11 van tyre
Avon Tyres has launched the latest in its range of van tyres, the AV11, available now in sizes 215/60R16 C, 205/65R16 C, 215/65R16 C and 235/65R16 C. Standing alongside the AV9, Avon says the new tyre will have an expanded fitment range later in 2012.
Nigel Hampson, sales and marketing director of Cooper Tire Europe, said, “We know that our van-driving customers often depend entirely on their vehicles for their livelihoods. For them, the choice of a tyre is far more crucial than the average motorist and that’s why we’ve designed the AV11 with those people in mind.
“The AV11 will stand up to relatively harsh treatment, be it heavy payloads or scuffing along kerbs and other obstacles that are the everyday perils of the average LCV. And, when it comes to inclement conditions, the AV11 ensures that a bad day of weather needn’t mean a bad day for your business.”
Avon, a brand manufactured by Cooper Tire & Rubber Company Europe, uses computer design technology to make the AV11 for commercial or private motorists. It has been designed to offer greater longevity and durability for typically high-mileage vehicles and is R speed-rated. The tyre features robust sidewalls to cope with kerbing damage and a reinforced carcass, able to handle heavier than average loads. Avon says the tyre also provides better wet weather handling.
