I too am runnin the Avon Storm II Ultra,but in a 180/55/17 size.It started out new with 8/32 of tread and now has 5/32 of tread left after almost 6,000 miles.So it's definitely an improvement over that piece of sh** Metzsler.And I see no difference in tire performance over the Mets,other then better mileage.

Up front,I'm runnin a Bridgestone G851 and got alittle over 10,000 miles out of the first one,and again with no noticeable difference in tire performance verses the Mets except better mileage.I recently replaced it with another Bridgestone and have no complaints.

And both the Avon and the Stone were cheaper than the Metzsler tires. Dave!!!
