I'll start by saying I've done the search thing and not much is mentioned about Avon tires. I talked to the dealership today about some tires and he immediately started pitching Avon. I was leaning towards the Conti Road Attacks and he said there was no comparison.....Avon was much better. Is this true? Will I be happy with Avon? I've heard nothing but good stuff with the Contis. This is my first replacement tire, so I've only ridden on the Bridgestone. Any opinions would be great! Also, he's asking $200 for rear. Is this reasonable?

Avon makes decent tires, but IMHO not as good as the Michelins or a lot of other brands. I know one guy who just loves Avon Azaro's on his S3, but he's an anachronism. He hated the Pilot Powers. Most of the other folks I've talked to thought the Avon Azaro's handled strangely. My dealership recommended against them, and I trust these fellows. Particularly because they deal in Avons.

I certainly do not think that they are anything like "Much better" than the Conti Road Attacks. For $200 he's trying to screw you into buying something he can't get rid of. That's my take on it.

Run my friend! Run like the wind. Buy some Pilot Powers, or some Conti Road Attacks. Either way you'll be much happier than with the Avon's or the Bridgestones.

Yeah! My grandma's house was full of Avon crap. Perhaps I should steer clear of that potential tag.
