Contradictory Old Tyre Advertisements

Which would you prefer your Lordship, Dunlops or Avons?

Two old ads from a 1977 Autocar.

Dunlop.



Avon.



It's funny, to me Avon is the only way to go. It's like putting regular 'autoparts store' mats in a Roller instead of lambs wool.

Avon even developed a tyre uniquely for the Turbo R Bentley - The Turbospeed- for that extra weight and high speed capability.

Avons are expensive and wear quickly but it just seems right.
