Features:

The Uniroyal Rainexpert tyres, specialists in the rain tyre category, are manufactured by Uniroyal Tyres. The company is a 100% subsidiary of leading tyre manufacturer Michelin Tyres. While the Uniroyal Rainexpert tyres perform superbly in wet conditions, they are equally adept on dry roads too. The Uniroyal Rainexpert tyres are high performance rain tyres ideal for small to medium compact cars. The Uniroyal brand from Michelin is all about enhanced technological features meant to deliver comfort, safety and performance on rain drenched roads. So these tyres are absolutely worth the price you pay for them. The unique V shaped tread pattern maximises performance on wet and dry roads. Double concave grooves in the tread pattern expel surface water efficiently, enhancing aquaplaning resistance and increasing safety during rain. Angled sipes in the tyre shoulder enhance grip resulting in shorter braking distances on wet and dry roads. Presence of visual alignment indicators helps prevent uneven tread wear. Optimised tread pattern guarantees quiet ride.

Suspect they may only last 20000 miles rather than the normal 30000 I get.

We've run these on all types of journey from local rural commutes to long motorway trips through all weathers over the past year and they've performed admirably. Excellent value for money.

Excellent tyres. Used for >6K miles now. Just buying some for another car. Decent in the dry (much better than budget brands), exceptional in the wet with superb resistance to aquaplaning, and just perfect for British 3-season use. Like *all* summer (what we in the UK call normal) tyres, they are not designed for ice and snow; in those circumstances, you should fit winter tyres! Good value and highly recommended.

I replaced all 4 of my tyres at the same time and immediately noticed a difference in the handling. previously I had a set of Toyo's and was more than happy with them but these Uniroyals seem to stick to the road much better especially on the wet and muddy B roads that I tend to use to drive to work and back. I have only driven about 2000 miles so cannot comment on wear but would be more than happy to recommend them if like me you live in the country and regularly use small, minor roads. They are really good in the wet but to be fair we haven't had the adverse weather that we had last year so I have not had to drive in the snow as yet.

Brought tyres prior to driving to Glasgow for work related course(Dec). Drove down to glasgow in rain in which the tyres preformed well. However, when driving back was driving in snow on A941 when tyres lost traction with road on 90 degree right hand bend at 18mph causing 520 degree spin resulting in impact with embankment and write off of my car that I only owned for 50days. Would not recommend these tyres for customers driving in Scotland as they are leathal in Scottish weather conditions (snow, -1oC, 5mph wind).

What a difference! Chaged from Toyo's and the effect was immediate, outstanding grip in wet and dry, streering improved and very hard wearing.

I recently replaced my car with a later model which was fitted with mixed tyres. swapped the wheels and noticed a dramatic change.I regularly make a journey of just over 50 miles, which is half motorway, 10 miles of trunk road and 15 miles of country roads, and the Uniroyal tyres perform very well under wet or dry conditions, and feel hold the road and respond positively on motorways or twisty B roads.
