New Avon van tyre to help lower fuel consumption

Avon Tyres has introduced a new van tyre designed to help fleets improve fuel efficiency and cut costs.

Avon Tyres’ new AV12 van tyre

The AV12 replaces the AV11 and features 10% less rolling resistance – helping to improve fuel economy as a result – with a 5% improvement in wet braking ability bringing potential safety improvements.

The tyre, which comes in fitment ranges suitable for 80% of the commercial van market, also features a more durable sidewall, helping to ensure increased longevity and reducing fleet tyre costs.

The sidewall features protective kerbing ‘wear ribs’ while prominent sidewall ‘buffer’ – 6mm wider than that on the AV11 – also helps to avoid premature wear and minimise kerbing damage.
