Well, well, well. Look at this that we snapped up last week (but had to wait to get some details on what we’d seen) – this is what is going to be the Avon Storm replacement tyre for next year.
The new rubber will be out next spring. Apparently it has massive wet performance, good mileage (it’s going after the Pilot Road 4 market).

Front has link bars on the big ’S’ shaped tread cuts too.
What do you reckon? Look pretty cool, huh?
Here’s the rear:
