Agree with BalticSupraTT. It worn quick and not good on wet surface. Didn't work for me at all.
Very nice when dry though. :D

The AVS Sport is one of my all time favorite tires. Some tires do some things better, but very few do everything as well.

My AVS's wore out way too fast, had no wet handling at all and were loud. Only plus was that they gripped very well when new around curves. I agree with Andi B. about the half worn issue.

Very good tires when new. Once they're about half-worn they start to lose grip.

andi, I had the same problem with my road race NITTO NT 555R II's. They seemed to grip a lot better when they were new. Do you recommend the BFG TA KD for straight line performance at all?

The KD's are the best tire I've had so far for all around dry grip - both straight line and cornering. And they grip as well when they're bald as they did brand new, and I've proved that with consistent lap times month after month, set after set.

That having been said.... Some drag radials in the same size are probably still slightly better in straight line albeit ridiculously subpar in cornering performance.

Not sure....

Ask Peter about the KD's. He swears by them... He is the one that recommended them to me...
