New Uniroyal RainExpert 5

Well renowned rain tyre expert Uniroyal has now introduced a new summer tyre to its range, the RainExpert 5, that offers best-in-class wet performance, a comfortable driving experience and increased mileage performance for maximum driving pleasure. To achieve this, new technologies have been developed that quickly drain water from the contact area. Further developments to the Shark Skin technology and innovative aqua twist sipes help accelerate water dispersal from the tread – throughout the entire life of the tyre. Wide circumferential grooves in the asymmetrical tread, alongside deep shoulder grooves, also promote rapid water removal, increasing the grip on wet roads and reducing the risk of aquaplaning.

An extended tyre life is achievable with a new tread compound and a consistent division of the tread by sipes between the blocks also reduces wear. The new tread design and balanced rubber distribution in the inner and outer areas of the tread of the new RainExpert 5 ensure uniform distribution of the ground pressure, helping to increase the service life.

To ensure driving is as comfortable as possible, the sequence of the profile blocks has been redesigned. External grooves aligned steeply in the driving direction, lead to reduced noise excitation, and closed lateral shoulder grooves on both tyre flanks reduce road/tyre noise ensuring a more comfortable and relaxed driving experience.

The new RainExpert 5 is available now. Uniroyal manufactures a wide range of products for rims with diameters between 14 and 18 inches and widths between 155 and 265 millimetres, as well as cross sections between 80 and 60 percent, and approvals up to 168 mph.
