Avon Tyres is the new headline sponsor of Fleet Live, the largest event for the fleet sector in the UK, attracting over 2,000 visitors, taking place at the NEC in Birmingham on 9-10 October.
Established in 1885, Avon has a long history of developing, producing and selling tyres. The British brand will showcase its van and 4×4 tyre ranges suitable for fleet vehicles on stand E40 at the NEC. Avon is a well-established name in the fleet market and its highly-popular AV11 van tyre is the tyre of choice of many leading fleets as it offers excellent value for money thanks to its mileage performance and ability to withstand the harsh demands of urban driving where its resistance to impact damage is a key benefit. It is available in a range of fitments to suit vehicles such as the Ford Transit, Iveco Daily, Vauxhall Vivaro, Volkswagen Transporter Window Van and Mercedes Sprinter.
