Avon launches Avon AS12 All Season van tyre

Avon Tyres has added the Avon AS12 All Season to its van tyre line-up. 3PMSF (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake) accredited, it has been developed to keep drivers moving all year round, in all weather conditions.

According to the tyre, standout features of the Avon AS12 All Season include a symmetrical tread, which produces an even footprint and impressive wear characteristics; together with high sipe and block edge lengths which, together with zig zag grooves, generate reliable braking performance in wet and snowy environments.

All of these elements are backed up by the 3PMSF severe snow rating.

The Avon AS12 All Season will initially be made available in 10 sizes, spanning 15- and 16-inch rims. 215/65R15 and 215/70R15 are the 15-inch sizes on offer, while the 16-inch sizes range from 195/65R16 to 235/65R16.

Avon’s van tyre line-up already includes the Avon AV12 summer and WM-Van winter products. By introducing the Avon AS12 All Season, Avon says it now offers a tyre with strong performance in both summer and winter conditions.

Gavin Edwards, general manager, European technical centre, Cooper Tire Europe, said: “We are thrilled to be introducing the Avon AS12 All Season van tyre.

“We already offer proven van tyres which are developed with a focus on the challenges presented by each of the summer and winter seasons, so it is great to now complete the set with a tyre with strong performance across all weather conditions.”
