[200q20v] AVS Intermediates

I've had them on my UrQ for the last 3 years, in 215/50/15.  The car has mainly been used for QCUSA track events, and I've done 6.5 on these tyres.

For track purposes, while not up to the performance level of the DOT "slicks" or even the newer ultra performance brands, they have still performed very well and drawn extremely favourable comment from my instructors.  They still have enough life for a few more events.

They are not at all bad in the rain, but I would not take them anywhere near snow or the temperatures associated with it.  AFAIK they are simply not designed for low temps.

They've worn well for me under pretty extreme conditions albeit on a lighter less powerful car.

That said, if you want all season performance I would look elsewhere.
