    Just had the car serviced yesterday and as i only got my alloys in August IIRC i asked for them to switch them from back to front and vice a versa. To my disgust my mechanic told me that my front tyres are in a bad way! he said they are very badly worn and also i have a gash or crease on the inside wall of the drivers tyre which covers 1/3 of the wheel.
    I have only covered about 10K since August and my car cannot spin the front wheels (AUTO) unless its very wet which as most of you know it has hardly rained at all!

    This cannot be normal for a tyre to wear that quick.

    I'm not being funny but on my old civic i had hankook ventus rubber on for 2 years and i thrashed that but the tyres were fine!

    I have to get new tyres but feel Avon have alot to answer for regarding the ZZ3 tyre.

    Has anyone else had a problem with these or could it be a one off?

    could be a soft compound performance tyre, much like toyo proxie's fantastic grip, but only for a few thousand
