The chances of skidding and loss of control on wet surfaces is always high. In fact upto 25% of all road accidents occur on wet roads. And with the UK’s unpredictable weather, you are extremely likely to drive during rains rather than not. For complete peace and safety with respect to driving on wet surfaces, turn to the expert rain tyres- the Uniroyal RainExpert tyres. The Uniroyal RainExpert tyres from Uniroyal Tyres are summer tyres specifically designed to cater to the needs of small and compact family cars. High performance tyres from Uniroyal Tyres that cater to luxury saloons and sports cars are the Uniroyal Rainsport2 tyres.
Aquaplaning protection: One of the biggest hurdles in driving in the rain is the fear of aquaplaning. When your car is driven on wet surfaces, the area of contact between the tyres and surface reduces, because of water accumulation in the tread area. If this water is not quickly and efficiently displaced, the tyre loses all contact with the road and starts floating on water. This is called aquaplaning and results in loss of control and skidding. The Uniroyal RainExpert tyres offer superior aquaplaning resistance, due to the presence of double concave grooves in the tread. The concave shape increases the groove depth leading to efficient dispersal of more water, without swirling effect. Thus the aquaplaning resistance increases and chances of skidding reduce significantly.
Unprecedented safety levels: Besides expert performance on wet surface, the Uniroyal RainExpert tyres exhibit unparalleled safety due to reduced stopping distances on all surfaces – wet and dry. The presence of angular sipes on the tyre tread increases the traction when brakes are applied, leading to greater grip and quicker stopping on all surfaces.
Long life characteristics: Uneven tread wear is the leading cause for tyres getting worn out quickly and needing replacement. Uneven tread wear can occur when there is misalignment of the wheels, causing excessive wear on one side of the tyres. The Uniroyal RainExpert tyres come with unique visual alignment indicators (VAIs), by which you can easily make out if there are any alignment issues causing uneven tread wear. Thus you can correct the issue and ensure extended life for the tyres.
Reduced stopping distances: The Uniroyal RainExpert tyres have a directional V-shaped tread pattern with angular sipes on the tyre shoulder and centre. The sipes provide extra grip while braking on wet and dry surface, thereby reducing stopping distances and increasing safety significantly.
