I think I have read that the Avon looks bigger ..don't know if Its because of the diameter or not. I bought the Avon from eBay for 220 shipped. Dot numbers have it built last year..had much luck with the Avon tires..I'm gonna stick with them

the dunlop 250 tire is much taller then the other tire choices, regardless of what the companies have listed they are "ballpark at best" depends on the rim they installed them on and also each tire seems to be a hair diff...then the next. From tons of experience the 250 avon is the closest to stock height, is always just a tad wider when placed on it's side next to and avon 260 sometimes close to 1/8"wider due to how the avon comes together on its side. Also having run the dunlop let me say, it is heavy, a hard tire, and it way to tall and you will have issues running this tire with a stock fender. A couple people have used these with my kits and it's been hit and miss but nobody said they would do it again if they had the money to buy the avon. This is why I tell everyone 250 avon or if they just love metzeler go with there tire. Me having a choice I always used the 250 and loved it
