    The biggest negatives of my previous tyres wich they were Continental Contisport 3 was incredible sensitivity to ruts into the road and problem in steering. The Uniroyal RainSport 3 tyres solved these problems. They stick to the road even in the most demanding weather conditions and dosen’t generate any vibration.I had absolutely no problems with balancing, wheel alignment or steering.The resistance is comparable to the width of the tyre and is typical for any brand tyre, that is without reservations. The tyres are quite soft that can be felt during fast driving, but does not interfere with normal using. They are very comfortable and pattern tread look very nice and sporty. I cant complain about regarding behavior on dry and wet surfaces,simply brilliant, which is not surprising in the case becouse Uniroyal is considered the inventor of the rain tyre. While driving on a highway in Croatia I've encountered biggest rain I ve ever seen while driving a car.. Despite the fact that the wipers could not keep pace.and the road looked like a riverI could boldly go 70-80 mph risking nothing. The tyres did't lose contact with the road even for a moment and ideally would discharge the water from under the wheels and there was no problem with aquaplaning. I recommend these tyres.

    I decided to purchase Uniroyal RainSport 3 tyres and I am very dissapointed The tyre is a very soft and the car just float on it. In previous brigs handling precision was incomparably better. At the beginning I had problems in the corners but I thought it was the car's fault. It turned out to be a tyres problem. This morning I drove into puddles at 70 mph and I had the impression that the car just to float on it. The steering wheel twisted slightly to the left and the car started spinning out of control and flew right into the woods. If you prefer faster driving I do not recommend Uniroyal RainSport 3 tyres for you. At higher speeds tyres are simply dangerous so and you should invest in better quality tyres. I would add to all this that I have the factory sport suspension in my car and the tyre characteristics terribly spoiled his work.I drove onthis tyres about 8000 miles. I do not recommend it to anyone.

    I bought Uniroyal RainSport 3 tyres based on the opinions of Internet users and I am very disappointed. The only thing good I can say about these tyres is actually a pretty good grip on wet surfaces. Tyres intended for calm city driving. In these conditions the tyre is quiet and comfortable but a cheapest Chinese tyre is enough for such a ride The biggest drawback of Uniroyal RainSport 3 tyres is according to me a fatal grip on the corners. And I don't mean about very fast, sporty drive but on the highway at 90 mph fear to enter into a larger arc, because the car lost contact with the surface sometimes even activated ESP. I've never had similar problems with my previous tyres and the car was going in the corners as on rails. To sum up: tyres for people who like to feel safe in the wet and do not recommend for people who like a little more dynamic ride especially on curves.

    This is second time when I bought the Uniroyal tyres. A few days ago I drove the highway in the rain and snow. No problems with traction, casting and aquaplaning. You could feel that the tread can deal with the disposal of water. Despite category C surprisingly low noise level. My previous summer tyres on this car was Continentale and it seems to me that they Uniroyal are even quieter. Maybe they are still too new, but for now I appreciate the greater level of peace - both in driving around town and at speeds of 90-130 miles. I strongy recommend - in this price category are almost unbeatable. Their direct rival is probably only the Hankook tyres. When I was writing the comment it was still too early to assess their durability.

    I decided to purchase these tyres because of their parameters I was looking for summer tyres that perform well in wet conditions.My previous tyres were Uniroyal RainSport 2 and also I was pleased with them. The Uniroyal Rainsport 3 looks amazing,Very good grip on wet and dry. Good braking, I drove at high speeds and never had the feel car fell into slippage. It makes you feel their safe. I tested these tyres in the rain condition on a bend, where you enter up to 60 km / h I defeated this corner and accelerated to 100km / h. The only drawback is the wide grooves on the tread in which simply enters the stones. I would like to recommend the Uniroyal Rainsport 3 to everybody. Very good quality to price ratio.

Product description

Uniroyal Rainsport 3 225/45 R17 91 W RUN ON FLAT FR

RainSport 3 is a summer tire designed for mid-range cars and SUVs. It is marked with a special umbrella symbol, used by Uniroyal to indicate its rain tires. The brand is a leader in manufacturing tires that ensure safety on wet surfaces. RainSport 3 is a great choice for drivers who want to maintain their dynamic driving and feel confident on the road, regardless of the road conditions.



Grip

Adhesion:

The contact surface of the tire has been optimized, resulting in excellent traction. The unique properties of this solution are especially useful in heavy rains. The car is safely controlled on the bends, and the tires respond perfectly to the movements of the steering wheel. Additional safety is assured by a shortened braking distance during dynamic maneuvers.



Aquaplaning

Protection against aquaplaning:

Uniroyal designed the RainSport 3 model using solutions invented by nature. Drainage grooves are inspired by the unique properties of shark skin and provide improved water flow. Users of Shark Skin Technology will experience a noticeable increase in road safety and resistance to dangerous aquaplaning, which may cause loss of vehicle control.



Handling

Driving:

RainSport 3 was appreciated by jurors, who awarded the Uniroyal brand with the prestigious Red Dot Design Award. This special award is the recognition of the innovation and functionality of the tire. The asymmetric tread design ensures driving safety, maximum performance and effective braking in all conditions. RainSport 3 is quiet even at high speeds, optimizing the acoustics in the cab and guaranteeing exceptional comfort.

Fuel efficiency (rolling distance)

Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale. The highest fuel efficiency rating is A (green; the lowest rolling resistance), while the lowest fuel efficiency rating is G (red; the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.

Wet grip is rated from A to G, where A represents the best braking performance and G represents the worst. It is one of the most crucial safety parameters.

Tyres contribute to the amount of noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
