The Avon Ice Touring ST is widely known due to its impressive range of characteristics. For starters, it features an excellent rating, when it comes to wet grip, according to the EU tyre label. At the same time, its performance in both ice and snow is significant. And, most importantly, this tyre offers unmatched value for the money, just as you’d expect from a legendary UK tyre manufacturer such as Avon. The wet grip performance is so good thanks to the compound. As a general rule, winter tyres feature a soft, malleable compound that imitates the flex that a summer tyre has in typical warm temperatures. On that note, the wet performance is a noteworthy bonus, placing this tyre well above its competitors in the same price range.
