As its name suggests, the RainExpert 3 summer tyre is a true expert in the wet. It is developed for compact and mid-range vehicles as well as SUVs.
Like its sportier sister, the RainSport 3, the RainExpert 3 relishes the rain. With its Shark Skin Technology, featuring longitudinal grooves and innovative tread structure, it minimises water turbulence and quickly channels water away. So while you're enjoying precise handling on wet roads, it's protecting you from aquaplaning.
The RainExpert 3 has a flow-optimised asymmetrical tread structure and a tread compound that has been specially developed for strong grip in the wet. It features large outer shoulders, with lateral stiffness, for high grip while cornering.
The tyre is rated grade A on the EU Tyre Label for wet grip, indicating the highest possible performance in wet and rainy conditions.
The tyre’s tread pattern has been designed for an optimised contact patch with the road, leading to reduced friction and a lower rolling resistance on all road surfaces (the energy needed to keep your tyres rolling at a steady pace). This low rolling resistance will save you money at the fuel pumps.
Eighteen summer tyres took part in the AutoBILD test. The test criteria evaluated the performance on a wet course (longitudinal aquaplaning, lateral aquaplaning, handling, circular track, braking), on a dry course (handling, braking, ride comfort, pass-by noise) and analysed costs (lifecycle, overall lifecycle costs, rolling resistance). The Uniroyal RainExpert 3 impressed the testers with good results on wet road surfaces.
