Avon has giving me great results so far. i researched and asked around for a month before my purchace. what i found out is everyone will tell you something different. The avon Cobra is aimed at the power cruiser market. i'll let ya know how they hold up...i'm only 1000K in.

Ball,
Heard a couple guys the other day raving about the metzler marathon tires the other day. One said he had 10K on it and it looked as good if not better than my stock dunlop with 2500 on it. Personal research is the way to go though

Default tires

I purchased Avon cobras for my 07 8-ball and have about 6000 miles on them. Love em, they are smooth and hold to the road nicely. Look aweson=me as well.

Thanks for the input. I will do a little more research, and replace them over the winter.
