Information on the tyre: A the name suggests, Uniroyal RainExpert is an expert at driving in the rain. The tyre shows an excellent behaviour on wet surfaces and its most important features include short braking distance and an extended lifespan. The excellent performance on wet roads is due to the advanced directional ‘V’ tread pattern which enables the tyre to drain water quickly in wet conditions. These specifications not only minimise the risk of aquaplaning but keep the vehicle stable, responding to wheel movements instantaneously.
Another very important tread element is the special notches located on the blocks. This is the component that ensures a short braking distance and the appropriate stiffness of the tyre. The element that ensures its long life and provides the driver with the possibility to achieve high mileage with a single set of tyres is the balanced structure of the tyre. Thanks to this, the tyre has good grip and is also characterised by a high wear resistance. The tyre is equipped with a special wear indicator, which makes it easier for the driver to easily spot when a tyre needs to be replaced.
The tyre's performance is guaranteed by the manufacturer and is successfully verified in tests carried out by automotive organisations and magazines. Uniroyal is a valued tyre company famous for the production of excellent quality rain tyres and RainExpert is one of their flagship models. Uniroyal tyres are manufactured based on high technologies, meaning that they can boast great quality.
Information on the manufacturer: The technologies used to produce Uniroyal tyres partly derive from the experience of Continental, the German group that owns Uniroyal. Continental is one of the world's largest manufacturers of top-class tyres and the undisputed leader of tyre manufacturing in Europe. Their tyres are fitted as standard on BMW, Ford, Porsche, Daimler AG or General Motors vehicles. The company has been active since 1871 and owns such tyre companies as Uniroyal, Barum, Semperit, General Tire and Viking.
