Car is used for general road and touring mileage. No track use.
Standard 14" wheels running 185/60 R14 H all round. Currently on Avon ZV3s. No surprises that there's loads of tread left although compound dated and may well benefit from replacement this year.
Caterham did use the Avon ZT5 and now have the ZT7 (EU label Fuel C, Wet B Noise 69db) as their standard tyre. Is this because it's best suited to our cars or more of a brand tie-in for their higher spec offerings such as the ZZR and ZZS?
Seem to be some good reports of owners having Uniroyal Road Expert (EU label Fuel E, Wet B Noise 70db).
Based on those EU labels alone the ZT7 would appear to be pretty good . . . . or does the poor fuel rating of the Uniroyal mean it's more grippy? It's all a bit subjective at this level but any thoughts or alternatives?
