Avon launches AV12 van tyre at Fleet Live

Avon AV12

Avon has launched the AV12, a new van tyre designed to improve fuel efficiency.

Making its debut at Fleet Live, the tyre is available in a range of sizes to suit 80% of the commercial van market.

Rolling resistance is reduced by 10% when compared to the outgoing AV11, resulting in decreased fuel consumption.

The AV12 also has a more durable sidewall, providing additional protection and reducing the likeliness of early replacement.

The tyre has protective kerbing ‘wear ribs’. The depth of these kerbing ribs is 1.5mm. A prominent sidewall ‘buffer’ also helps to avoid premature wear and minimise kerbing damage. The AV12’s buffer is 6mm wider than on the tyre’s predecessor, the AV11.

A new compound is expected to improve wet braking by 5% and provide better grip and handling.

The new tyre is available now.
