Avon CR227 Tire Review & Rating

The CR227 from Avon is designed to meet the needs of luxury sedan owners who are looking for performance and maximum comfort. As a summer driving tire the CR227 is engineered to provide a smooth and quiet ride.

A summer tread compound and directional tread pattern enhance dry traction and cornering grip. Although these are not high performance tires you would find on a Corvette or Ferrari, they are specially tuned for luxury vehicles.

Avon CR227 Tire Review

The tire’s symmetric tread design further increases steering response and stability throughout the speed range.

Wide circumferential grooves channel away water from under the tire and increase hydroplane resistance for safer driving on wet roads. Avon has optimized the tread design so that road noise is nearly non-existent. You’ll find this model is not only quiet, but very comfortable as well.

Inside the tire you will find two steel belts that are nylon reinforced for added strength and durability. A rayon cord body further enhances ride quality. The CR227 comes with a V-speed rating and a limited tread warranty.

Overall Thoughts

The CR227 is specially made for the most luxurious of sedans, which is why you may not see this tire driving down the road that often. That said, this model offers very good traction on dry or wet road surfaces. Keep in mind that this is a summer touring tire and will not provide the necessary traction required for winter weather conditions.

Ride quality is exceptional as you might expect. Road noise is nearly non-existent. The tire remains stable throughout the speed range, and the steering is pretty responsive as well. Treadlife may be shorter due in part to the 200 treadwear rating the tire carries.

Overall, this is an outstanding tire for anyone who drives a luxury sedan and is looking for a tire to compliment the characteristics of the vehicle.
