After more than 80 thousand kms tours with a Rocket, and after 10 changes -8 cover them Metzeler- can confirm, once tested in every condition, in mountains, long journey at full load fast track, yet climate ... after stepping on dry and arid, cold, frozen ground and even with some snow .. that is unmatched. Is best in everything is infinitely more agile, the bike becomes much more "light" and manageable in slow corners, including "sport" in medium curves lasts between 10-15%, you could say that it feels less noise rolling over and is cheaper. I will repeat AVON without any doubt. Forced also say that OPONEO has sent always fast, with well packed correct dates of manufacture and the best price. Very professional.
I installed it in M90. Previously, I had a very popular tire ME880, which is far worse than the Cobra and dissuade her. ME880 is not bad but why buy it when a cobra? After changing to the Cobra (by the way also changed the wheel and szerkość went from 200 to 240): - looks great; - Horse became a little more comfortable; - Very well placed in the corners. Despite the change in width moto nothing lost the lead; - Very little is used and it does not effect the square; - I have no objections to grip; - When you get the slip, he is gentle and predictable. ME 880 also nicely kept but as I lost grip was violent. I see only advantages in comparison to the ME 880. I would definitely recommend!
Drive approximately 13000 miles per year, I have found i get approximately 8000 miles or 7 months on the fronts without bothering to swap, the rears just keep going, perhaps 18 months. I use my Kangoo Car Estate as a van and it sits quite low due to the load, ( Not excessive load) I have had approximately 3 full sets and find these tyres good in summer and winter, especially in the wet. ( I have also tried continental eco contact 3 xl on the front and they are complete rubbish - 5000 miles and down to the wire )
I have found the Avons are excellent value and its better to already have them on when it gets cold or wet as opposed to wishing you had them on when it gets cold.
The snow tyre works very well, holding on to the road, never buried, what happened to me with the previous tyres. On dry or wet pavement when the temperature fluctuates 7-8 degrees cos color does not feel confident users of other on the turns at higher speeds. But overall grip is fine. The advantage is a small abrasion tyres, I drove on it about 7 thousand km, riding aggressively and it seems to me that the tread is not disappeared. I have a BMW e46, 2 liters, 185 hp.
