  • ZZR's available from Caterham Cars!

    Just noticed that the Avon ZZR's are now available. And I just bought a set of rear CR500's because I wore out the first set!

    I've been waiting for these to come out, but won't need them for a while. I'm hoping they will be close to Kumho or Hoosier DOT R's in grip, and much lighter.

    my money would be on the KumHoHo crack to still be way stickier. the avon may be lighter, but more durable on the road. Did have a set of A048 or R888 to use as starting basis or just the CR500?

      I've just had the CR500's that I got with the car, and they are a decent tire but not nearly as good as the Kumho V710's I had on the last car. I did get some discounted Goodyear F1 slicks for Laguna Seca, and those are simply incredible! I think the ZZR's may be available in different compounds, although much of what I've read/heard hasn't been confirmed by Avon yet. I suspect they may be less sticky than the Kumho's, but if they are close I may try a set.
