Avon ZZS Tyres

After hearing that the CR500 will be un available in the near future I have opted to get a set of the new ZZS.

They arrived this morning from Caterham & are now sitting in the garage waiting to be fitted a little later in the year once I've worn the last mil out of the CR500's

They have 5mm of tread. Think that is same as the CR500's.

Tread patten looks good & is similar the the CR500. 

Looking forward to trying them out. Wobble

If you can put them on the kitchen scales before fitting, I'd like to know how heavy they are, thanks [/weightweeniemode]

Actually, disregard - Just saw JulianH has answered it in the Tech section...

As CR500 are still in production and readily available, it's hard to think of a good reason not to continue using them on the 7. Ideal for the application for which they were designed. Joint project between Caterham and Avon. CR - Caterham Racing ;)
