    on a set of new uniroyali pojeździłem suddenly four months when I have run one of them nail in the workshop turned out that there is nothing to fix it, because it has many defects tread, microcracks and its continued use would risk an accident ... so have commissioned survey the remaining 3 tires and we found that all have the same problems and in addition there are two bulges. So I sent the set to guarantee to the producer and received a reply that shows signs of use on the low pressure ... it's crap! Definitely do not recommend these tires.

    Excellent tire for wet weather. Very large possibility to drain the water. Note very slippery on the painted parts of the roadway. Deep cuts and soft rubber raises comfort, affects the accuracy of conduct. Changed with Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta, I rate change plus.

    In my tires they are very good wet weather (though they are typically for such) check also the wet grass. Acceleration of the car better than the previous ones, does not fall so easily slip a sudden startup and shifting into high gear (motor torque 400 Nm)

    The tyres recommendable especially in wet weather, they were created for such weather conditions. Good lead on dry and wet asphalt, relatively quiet. On the previous generation of Uniroyals I drove even on winter, the bit problem was only on the ice. The only minus for is me that you can not go faster than 90mph, becouse about 100 – 105 mph gently vibrates the steering wheel. Compare to Bridgestone Turanza ER 300 on which I also rode there was no such problem that it was but please notice that was premium class tyre. Uniroyal is a mid-range tyre but it is very close to the premium class. The tyres look really great because of their unique tread pattern When it comes to consumption, driving only the season, so far I have not noticed a bigger consumption. However, I noticed that their grip and braking in dry and wet weather conditions is great. The Uniroyal tyres will not disappoint you. Maybe for such car as mine, I have a BMW and Mercedes rather I should have bought something from higher class but those tyres are ideal in my opinion . In summary, if you can afford to spend more money or you have a very fast car you can buy something better (unless you are driving mostly around the city, then it is not of great importance), The Uniroyal – RainSport 3 tyres are one of the best value for money.What is more, you will feel safety and that is the most important thing. I do recommend these tyres to everybody.

Product description

Uniroyal Rainsport 3 245/40 R18 97 Y XL, 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

Wet grip is the tyre's ability to adhere to the road surface in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on the wet braking performance of the tyre. 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.

Noise

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.
