RainSport 3 is a summer tire, which is ideally suited to harsh weather conditions. Uniroyal, the brand known for its rain tires, developed a tire model that performs very well on wet roads, making driving safer. The modern tread design ensures quick water removal from under the front of the tire. A wet road is not a threat to a car fitted with RainSport 3 tires. The model has been designed for mid-range cars and SUVs.
The car "sticks" to the road and performs safely when cornering, as the tread of RainSport 3 has many 3D grooves and elastic shoulders, which ensure a better grip. These features are particularly important during heavy rain. The car behaves reliably, responding well to the driver's commands and the drive is safe. The manufacturer is strongly focused on the maximum safety of drivers, therefore it has used a special rubber blend designed to improve grip.
Protection against aquaplaning:
When designing this model, the manufacturers were inspired by a water predator, so the model uses a unique shape of water-draining grooves that is similar to the structure of shark skin. The innovative solution and fine grooves that regulate the flow of water ensure excellent performance on wet surfaces. The shape of the tread prevents the loss of grip when the car drives over, e.g. a puddle. As a result, drivers using RainSport 3 are additionally protected against aquaplaning.
RainSport 3 tires have a top-class wet grip category, marked according to European standards with the letter "A". This is very important information for drivers who want to drive safely and to feel confident behind the wheel of their cars. The asymmetrical tread pattern used in RainSport 3 increases the area of the tire’s contact with the ground, whereas the uniformly distributed pressure reduces the wear of tires and corrects any misalignments.
Manufacturer information: Uniroyal is a well-known producer of excellent rain tires. The company is owned by the German concern Continental, which produces top class tires. In addition to Uniroyal, Continental owns also other brands, including Barum, Semperit, Sportiva and Matador."

Recommendable tyres, especially for wet weather for which these were eventually created. Good grip on dry and wet asphalt. They’re relatively quiet. On the previous generation I’ve driven even in winter, I had a problem only on the ice, but for these conditions you need chains or spikes. The only downside for me is that when I’m abroad where you can drive faster than 86mph, when I get to 100/105mph the wells and the steering wheel gently vibrate. I hadn’t had this experience on Bridgestone Turanza ER 300 that I’ve had before. The grooves in the tread are large so stones enter them and strike while driving. That’s why I noted that Uniroyal isn’t a premium tyre but a bit lower class abut quality is much higher than the butget tyres so I would say it is in the middle class. When it comes to consumption, I’m driving on them only one season. So far I have not noticed any consumption of the tyre. The appearance of the tyres is cool, although for me it’s important for the tyre to be good in all conditions not to look good. However if the looks is important for you, I don’t think you’ll hesitate to buy Uniroyal, the looks should’ t disappoint you. For car as mine this tyre is good, but for strong BMW or Mercedes I would rather buy something from the premium class. In summary, if you can afford to pay for a set of high performance tyres or if you have a fast car, buy something better (unless you’re driving mostly around the city, then this tyre will be great). But if you look forward to purchase a set of tyres from a middle shelf, for me the Uniroyal is the best choice.
The biggest negative of my previous tyres Contisport3 was an amazing sensitivity to the holes in the ground (it wanted to snatch the hands off the wheel) and a high resistance to the managing the steering wheel. Uniroyal solved these problems. I almost couldn’t feel any resistance on the steering wheel, and the resistance is comparable to the behavior of the tyres with the width of 205 on dry which is actually typical for this tyre brand. The tyre has a soft shoulder that may be experienced during fast driving, but does not interfere with the normal operation and comfort. On a rain the tyre is brilliant, which is not surprising in case of this tyre brand. This tyre is considered the inventory of the rain tyres. On the highway in Croatia the biggest rain caught me. I’ve never seen such rain in my life. Despite the fact that the wipers couldn’t deal with it, and that the river flowed on the road, I was able to go boldly with the speed 70-75mph without risking anything. Tyre has never lost contact with the road. Falling in puddles feels like the car slows down but the tyres would ideally remove water from under the wheels. For them, there is no aquaplaning. I came back home on these tyres in one piece. On worn conti this could end badly. I do not know how sustainability is, but if it bearable I think I found the perfect tyre.
These tyres are available for a very cool price. I’ve ordered them as my brother recommended them to me. He has them in the 17” version and is also happy with the purchase. The tyres feel no difference whether it is dry or wet, even at speeds of 75-85mph, behind the car there is only a cloud. They’re a bit loud but apparently for this tread shape it’s normal. Certainly it may be a fault of the old bearings. Noise is not a big deal, but you can hear the tires a little. Surely it also depends on the car and its noise suppression. I drove over there and the 10k and it still looks very good, apart from some glass cuts or cuts caused by sharp stones, there is no sign of use. So far no flat tyre and no falling into a hole damaged the tyre. On my crooked alloy wheels I finally managed to somehow normally balance the tyres. Previous tyres I had were the budget tyres that they did not work at all. I recommend buying new tyres that will last you few years that some used once that you have to buy every year and then they go to bin. Compared to sport tyres that a colleague of mine has but had less miles than mine - my looks like you have never used them. I recommend this model although with no doubt Uniroyal has other equally successful models.
Good value for money. For the price of the milled range we get a mid-range product that on the wet surfaces equals or even beats the Michelin Energy Saver and ContiPremiumContact 2 tyres. When it rains you simply do not need to slow down. You are able to hold on to the steering wheel even when you hit a rut full of water. On a dry surface it is also good, but in dry conditions all tyres do well.When it comes to volume it doesn’t bother me, but I can’t judge objectively. It is rather comfortable tyre. The sides of the tyres are soft and you can feel it in fast corners. Tyre’s appearance is a big plus. This are not the most important factor, but if it looks good on the car is worth highlighting. Furthermore, beside Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta, the Uniroyal Rainsport 3 is probably one of the best tyres to order. I recommend especially for those who are looking for comfortable tyres with excellent value for money and good behavior in wet.
Currently I use the second set of these tyre of the summer season. I am very happy with them. Driving in the rain is actually reliable, confident, but let's face it, nothing is impossible. When the braking is done repeatedly the car can swim but while driving it's great. On a dry surfaces it sticks to the ground well. In general the rubber is soft and you feel it at higher speeds. The driving is comfortable. Sometimes, in a fast turn the car slips, but that's how it is with these front-wheel drive. To summarize, it's a brilliant tyre for draining water. Tyres provide a secure grip on dry and wet roads and confidence (it feels the same in both conditions). I don't have to be limited when the asphalt is wet. I'll also add that in winter I also use the Uniroyal tyres.
