Product description & features
The Uniroyal RainSport 3 is an asymmetric tyre that has been designed with Uniroyal's 'Shark Skin Technology' to greatly enhance the tyre's performance in wet conditions.
The tyre features a tread pattern optimised to ensure that surface water is dispersed from the path of the tyre efficiently and quickly, greatly reducing the risk of aquaplaning.
A special tread pattern also ensure that the tyre's contact area with the road is increased, to significantly shorten the braking distance - when compared with previous models.
To deliver strong traction in corners, the RainSport 3 features a flexible tread block to ensure the tyre achieves optimum grip when cornering.
What are summer tyres?
Summer tyres are specifically designed for warm weather conditions, particularly during the summer season. This type of tyre performs best when in seasons with warmer temperatures - above 7°C.
How does a summer tyre perform better in summer?
The technologies and tread patterns used in a summer tyre mean the tyres have high-quality features that are of benefit to driving in warm conditions. They typically use a softer rubber compound – designed for good grip and traction when driving on dry and wet roads.
Can you use summer tyres in winter?
Whilst summer tyres still offer adequate performances in wet and cooler conditions, it is recommended that you change. The tread design and technologies that are featured in summer tyres can harden in colder temperatures, resulting in reduced flexibility and decreased traction on snow and ice.
