Seeing as how the 175-15 Michelin zX's mounted on my BN1 are getting long in
the tooth I've been exploring various alternatives. For the reasons
expressed by some others I like the look of a "tall" tire that fills the
wheel cut-out well.
Avon makes their CR6ZZ's in 175-15 and it is a "70" aspect tire as are my
Michelins. They will fit on 5.5" wheels which is what I have so I wonder if
anyone has tried them and with what results? Michael Salter had Avon
CR6ZZ's fitted to AHX-12 when we did the Targa Newfoundland in 2008 and 2009
and they certainly seemed to have good road holding at high speeds and were
also pretty good in the wet, but I am more interested in hearing from those
who have driven on them in normal versus semi-competitive circumstances.
BTW my apologies to all of those who are weary of the recent discussions re
tires. Subjects such as tires, auxiliary fans, changing of polarity, etc.
may be boring to those for whom they are not a present issue but are most
interesting to those for whom they are, and right now tires are an issue of
interest to me.
