Haven' t used too many other brands and models but Uniroyal Rainexpert is the best everyday tyre I've used.
What I like the most of it is - grip. Grip on wet and flooded surface is exceptionally great! Where other tyres are "floating" Rainexpert make you feel that no conditions have changed. On dry it has so much grip that it almost feels I'm driving on semi slicks. Keeps my kind of wobbling suspension Kangoo on corners like sports car.
Using on this car a second set of these tyres. And will be using again.
Wear of tyre is quite rapid comparing to other tyres but for me the main thing is how car hold the road. It's a safety question for me. BTW I'm using these with EBC Bluestuf compound pads. Perfect combination on Kangoo MK1.
Handling on wet is great, they have a slight noise to them, very slight tho. We have them for a year now and after over 12 000 km they still look like new, there was no considerable expenditure on the threads.Tyre size reviewed: 185-60-16-
On my second set. First lasted 3 years, weekly commute from Perthshire to Norfolk and driving around A47 etc staying alive..
Thus have driven in ALL conditions.
Tyres do wear, on mine it's the fronts that suffer the greater wear say 60/40 front to rear.
Tyres like the hot spells in Norfolk air temps in 30+ no ideas of road surface temp but they didn't enjoy being worked hard during that period but OK if capn sensible appeared....7/10 dry grip score during that period of hot temps..
Tyres are a bit noisy on some surfaces but hey....
Confidence inspiring. They just get on with the job of the day, mundane or not. Wet conditions and standing water at motorway speeds are always a danger. These mitigate that danger [be aware that hitting 6" deep standing water in any tyre will not end well!] dry and wet grip more than adequate. Despite quattro I do not push, in the wet to the same extent as the dry.
Braking. Despite British drivers on British Roads, Duals and Motorways I have yet to trigger ABS in extremis, car does a good impression of bikers "stoppies" too.
Handling/Feedback Tyres let you know by sound and feel when your getting close. With full time quattro the dynamic change when centre diff operates can be felt but no understeer just a reduction in torque feedback on steering wheel.
These softish tyres come into their own in these circumstances. I imagine that they work equally well in either front or rear drive configuration.
All in all bloody good, more focused rubber will outperform them, but really, when bangs per buck come into it, it's no contest from my POV...
I run two sets of tyres on my BMW E61 525i- Michelin Pilot Alpin in the winter and Uniroyals all other times - As this is the car we use for our children safety is important & I believe that Uniroyals offer excellent grip & great value for money. As this is a family car high speed performance is not my primary concern - I would but Michelin Pilots if that was the case. They are very reassuring in wet weather & great all round performance. Wear is slightly high due to their soft compound but nothing to worry about - would buy again no problem.Tyre size reviewed: 225-45-17-
Je cours deux sÃ©ries de pneus sur ma BMW E61 525i- Michelin Pilot Alpin en hiver et Uniroyals tous les autres fois - Comme c'est la voiture que nous utilisons pour nos enfants, la sÃ©curitÃ© est importante et je crois que Uniroyals offre une excellente adhÃ©rence et un excellent rapport qualitÃ© prix . Comme il s'agit d'une voiture familiale, la performance Ã haute vitesse n'est pas ma principale prÃ©occupation - je le ferais, mais Michelin Pilots si tel Ã©tait le cas. Ils sont trÃ¨s rassurants par temps de pluie et trÃ¨s performants. L'usure est lÃ©gÃ¨rement Ã©levÃ©e en raison de leur composÃ© doux, mais rien Ã craindre - achÃ¨terait encore aucun problÃ¨me.Tyre size reviewed: 225-45-17-
Ich fahre im Winter zwei ReifensÃ¤tze an meinem BMW E61 525- Michelin Pilot Alpin und alle anderen Zeiten an Uniroyals. Da dies das Auto ist, das wir fÃ¼r unsere Kinder verwenden, ist Sicherheit wichtig und ich glaube, dass Uniroyals exzellenten Grip und ein gutes Preis-Leistungs-VerhÃ¤ltnis bieten . Da dies ein Familienauto ist, ist die Hochgeschwindigkeitsleistung nicht meine Hauptsorge - ich wÃ¼rde aber Michelin-Piloten, wenn das der Fall wÃ¤re. Sie sind sehr beruhigend bei nassem Wetter und groÃŸartige Leistung. Die Abnutzung ist wegen ihrer weichen Verbindung etwas hoch, aber nichts, worÃ¼ber man sich sorgen mÃ¼sste - wÃ¼rde wieder kein Problem kaufen.Tyre size reviewed: 225-45-17-
Pretty disapointed with this tyre. The wear rate is atrocius and after 12000 miles they where close to the wear indicators and I drive slow and easy.
It is a touring tyre and not a sports tyre so it is confortable but also a bit noisy due to the pattern design. The sidewalls are very soft so the steering is not very precise.
Grip in the wet is good especially aquaplaning resistance however wet handling is nothing special compared with sporty Michelins I had before. I have to say price/quality is not good in the end because wear is high.
These tires were used on a day car for city and country road mainly. As with previous Uniroyal tires I've had these are well balanced on the road with consistent grip throughout their life. Grip in both dry and wet is good. The tires feel comfortable and they are very progressive. I did not feel that they gave enough feedback from the road and their wear performance was rather mediocre, especially since they were fitted on a small car.
Overall they are very good tires and I would buy again.
Ces pneus ont Ã©tÃ© utilisÃ©s sur une voiture de jour pour la ville et la route de campagne principalement. Comme avec les pneus Uniroyal prÃ©cÃ©dents, je les ai bien Ã©quilibrÃ©s sur la route avec une adhÃ©rence constante tout au long de leur vie. Grip Ã la fois sec et humide est bon. Les pneus sont confortables et trÃ¨s progressifs. Je n'avais pas l'impression qu'ils donnaient assez de feedback sur la route et que leur performance d'usure Ã©tait plutÃ´t mÃ©diocre, d'autant plus qu'ils Ã©taient montÃ©s sur une petite voiture.
Dans l'ensemble, ils sont de trÃ¨s bons pneus et j'achÃ¨terais encore.
