Tyre: Uniroyal Rainsport 2


If you think nothing beats the romance of a long drive in the rains, think again. The last thing you want on your mind during a romantic long drive in the rains is a nagging fear that you will skid at any moment. Quite enough to bung a spanner in the works and dampen the mood (pun unintended). But all is not lost yet. Don’t give up on your romantic drives. Instead choose the Uniroyal RainSport2 tyres and make the most of the rains. The Uniroyal RainSport2 tyres from Uniroyal Tyres enable maximum safety and performance during rains for luxury, executive and sports saloons. These cars, because of their high performance potential have equally high chances of skidding and losing control on wet surfaces. Hence they need specific tyres that offer high levels of aquaplaning resistance and which ensure quick stopping on all surfaces, (irrespective of wet or dry) so that safety is maximised always. The Uniroyal Tyres expert rain tyres for small to medium cars are the Uniroyal RainExpert tyres.

The Uniroyal RainSport2 tyres exhibit the following features to ensure maximum performance in wet weather.

Superior Aquaplaning Resistance: The USP of the Uniroyal RainSport2 tyres is its V-shaped directional tread bars, which have a 3-D structure. This unique arrangement results in quicker and more efficient water dispersal from the tread area. Thus you are assured of maximum aquaplaning safety on the wettest of roads and during the heaviest of downpours. Drive on with the confidence that the chances of skidding are really low with the Uniroyal RainSport2 tyres.
Innovative Silica Tread Compound:  The new red hot silica tread compound used in the Uniroyal RainSport2 tyres has inherent high grip properties. Therefore these tyres can easily grip into the road surface and stop quickly on application of brakes. Of course, this is true on both wet and dry surfaces, making the Uniroyal RainSport2 tyres one of the safest tyres on all surfaces.
Innovative Visual Alignment Indicators (VAIs): The presence of three visual alignment indicators on the inner and outer tread of the Uniroyal RainSport2 tyres lets you see clearly if the tyres are being subjected to uneven wear. This means there is a misalignment of the wheel in some area. Once you know this, you can correct it and ensure extended tyre life and high mileage for the Uniroyal RainSport2 tyres.
Durability: One sided tyre wear can quickly shorten the tyre life. The Uniroyal RainSport2 tyres feature clear visual alignment indicators on the inner and outer tyre tread. These indicators show if the track alignment and chamber adjustment are optimal for even tread wear. The advantage of course is that if there are any discrepancies, they can be corrected forthwith, resulting in longer tyre life due to the elimination of uneven tread wear.

Sometimes feels like it handles better in the wet than the dry! I know that's not really possible but shows how impressive the tyre is as it handles well in the dry also!

Much better grip in all conditions than the previously fitted Bridgestone Touranzas. Most obvious in the wet when pulling away. Noise level is also greatly reduced.
