I'm looking at getting a full set of new boots for the Exige to see in the New Year. Has anyone had any experience, buying or running, of the Avon ZZR's that are used in the Lotus on Track series?
Currently the car is on a set of A048's but apart from being hard to get hold of they are mega £££, especially for a set of 4, and the R888's aren't much cheaper. I'm going to give Chris Askew from Avon Motorsport a call on Monday to get a price but it looks like they should be around £550 delivered.
“The Avon ZZR design brief was immense. “To develop the fastest dry weather, track orientated, road legal, E-marked race tyre in the world”. The ZZR was a perfect opportunity for Avon’s technical department to showcase the company’s cutting edge motorsport design and state-of-the-art race tyre manufacturing techniques. The result is a full on, dry weather, race orientated, road legal product.
