Back to my original question,

has anybody swapped onto Avons from a lesser brand manufacturer? If so how did the Avons compare, are they worth the money ??

Hi Nige, I have in the past, not on the Hawk.
From old Toyo's to Avon was a night and day improvement.

Going from Cooper Cobras (via Dunlop Racing cross-ply’s!) to Avons was a massive improvement. I think I need to be driving a bit harder though, as they’ve been on for 10,000 miles and still have 3+MM of tread left, and many reports suggest you only get 7-10k out of them!
