Uniroyal Rainsport 2



  2003 Clio 172
Utterly Utterly dogs bor wax........

Compared to the Avon ZV5's that were there, night and day

Compared to the Conti CS3's on wifeys Bee Emm..................different league.

Ran the Michelin Primacys that are on the back currently on the front for a comparison. Different league, all IMO of course. Maybe they are past their best too tbf.


Clio was absolutely planted tonight in torrential rain, it has NEVER gripped so hard....not even through the summer in the bone dry. lol


Transformed the car.

AFAIK, Conti make Uniroyal...........well, it was Conti who replied when I contacted Uniroyal about stock dates....

odd cos i switched to avons.lol. just goes to show never trust someone elses opinion 100%!!! guess it depends alot where you drive it most, mine spent most of time on cornish country roads

I have them on my shed (mondeo tdci) and they were awesome over winter in the snow etc.... highly recommended.

Have them all round on my 182, superb tyres. Ive thrown the Clio into corners and roundabouts at scary pace and as said - they dont let go lol

nope, great in wet grip wise. sidewalls too hard for me, made car jittery under braking and ride horrible. prob wouldnt notice if on coilovers but not for me.

Sidewalls too hard? Bloody hell before I got them fitted to mine I thought they were comically flimsy, but as jinjur says fantastic tyre, and great for wet weather track tyres.

Might I just add that this morning on my motorway commute, the tyre has continued to impress.....

All the Clio's skittishness on high speed motorway travel as all but gone.

Solid and safe

I've been raving about these for years - since I first had them on my 106 GTi

In the past 2 years I've had conti sports because I felt they handled a little bit better in the dry - but yesterday I got some 2118's fitted with 205/50/15 Uniroyal Rainsports and the grip is insane
I'm nearly sliding out my harnesses and the cars still sticking.

In the wet they are mind-bogglingly good, it feels just like driving in the dry

I will never have another tyre again!

They are brilliant. Honestly brilliant. As a road tyre, the only thing that comes close overall is the V12.

Agreed, these are going on wifeys Bee Emm to replace the Conti CS3's when they are dead

Im ordering 2 of these for the front when camskill have them in on 9th Feb. Epic tyres

You after 16's? I just bought a set of 15's from them. (epic bump just realised the date, assume you have them now lol)

Uniroyal must be owned by Continental as it came with their stickers on them. Sidewalls feel a little soft but not had a chance to test them yet.

Formula One Autocentres do a price match on all tyres. I'm ordering a pair of Rainsport 2's at £77 each fitted. Camskill couldn't match this price.

Had them on the Puma and they were great, even in the wet it didn't matter how fast you threw it round a roundabout it just gripped - then laughed at you and told you to try harder!

I got 2 Uniroyal rainsport 2's 195 45 15's about 2 months ago for £56 fitted. Awsome tyres and they grip amazingly well. When the rears need changing I'll be getting the same.
