Questions and Answers for the Uniroyal Rainsport 3

2016-06-08 - is there a left & right on the uniroyal rainsport 3

No there isn't. Unlike the Rainsport 2, the Rainsport 3 is an asymmetric tyre, not directional tyre. This means the tyre has an "inside" and "outside" to be mounted on the wheel, but once mounted the wheel and tyre can go on either side of the car.


2016-06-15 - I have just had uniroyal rain sport 3 fitted on my car in replace of mitchellin tires, are uniroyal comparable to Mitchelin ???? I feel like I have been ripped off as asked and was quoted for Mitchelin tires

The Uniroyal RainSport 3 is an excellent midrange tyre. It should have a similar level of wet grip to a premium Michelin tyre, however we would expect the Uniroyal to wear more quickly. This should have been offset by a cheaper purchase price.

Top Uniroyal Rainsport 3 Reviews

Given 83% (breakdown) while driving a MINI Clubman (205/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 4,000 average miles
Fitted these to my wifes Mini clubman S as I had previously had them fitted to my Audi RS4. They are an excellent tyre for the money and few tyres can match them in the wet. Road noise is also very good on them.

Like all tyres what works on one car doesn't necessarily mean it will work for all, but at the cost of these they are well worth going for. The rate of wear is a little high, but then its a soft compound that enables high grip levels and its this that leads to the wear rate.

You could spend twice as much on a Michelin PSS or just buy 2 sets of these IF you find they wear out quickly. I still find it staggering that people put wear above grip. Frankly I'd rather know that when I take a corner in the wet or dry, or when I hit the brakes hard (in an emergency for instance) that my tyres will not brake traction. These tyres will out perform alot of higher priced tyres, and will out perform alot of similarly priced tyres that have lower wear rates.

I will definitely buy these again.

Given 87% (breakdown) while driving a Mazda 6 Sport 2.3L (215/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
A search on the internet shows that here in Northern Ireland we average 213 wet days a year (feels more like 313), so my first priority was to find a tyre with excellent wet-weather handling, grip and braking. The Uniroyal Rainsport 3 certainly meets that criteria! As so many have already stated on reviewing this tyre, the wet performance is truly excellent and the dry performance is more than adequate. You are not going to get the razor sharp performance of expensive Michelin or Continental premium brands for example but then again the Rainsport 3's cost less than half the price. A new set of four with the old tyres disposed of cost me £300. The tyres that were replaced were Michelin Exaltos and I would pick the Uniroyals over the Michelins without hesitation. In addition to being a safe tyre, I find them to be both very quiet and very comfortable. With the Michelins, the occupants in my car had to shout at each other to converse at motorway speeds! The Rainsport 3's are much much quieter. As far as wear, I've only done around 2000 miles but they seem to be holding up okay but even if they wear out more quickly than the other major brands, I feel that the lower prices and superb wet performance more than compensates for the reduced wear. So in summary, if you drive sensibly and want to get from point A to point B safely, especially on the damp, slippery UK roads I unreservedly recommend the Uniroyal Rainsport 3. They are great tyres when weighing up price versus performance!

Given 88% (breakdown) while driving a Volvo C30 R Design Sport (205/55 R16 V) on mostly country roads for 5,000 spirited miles
My experience of Uniroyal is in a friends car, but has prompted me to order a set of 205/55 R16 V91 Rainsport 3's. I have studied many, many reviews, looked at prices on every on line site available and come to the conclusion that these tyre are the best choice for me. I was amazed to find no garages here in Torquay sell these tyres, and most will only fit tyres purchased from them! I found one garage that will fit my tyres allowing me to buy at a bargain price online and have them fitted at local garage and old tyres disposed of etc. Pointless wasting money on the two other alternatives I considered, Goodyear Efficient Performance and Michelin Cross Climate. Looking forward to great driving even in UK weather.

Given 73% (breakdown) while driving a Opel vectra c (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 13,048 spirited miles
These tires are great. You hit a puddle and high speed and it will brake your car. Literally. Also great on dry.

The downside? The wear. In a year, they had nothing. Maintained properties though but were basically illegal to drive in because of the thread depth. Sad.
