have been looking for a new set of 4 tyres while looking have come across
this make and model seems to have had very good reviews
tyrereviews.co.uk/Tyr…htm
so would like to share what i have found with you guys

take a look seems like quite a good deal

ainSport 2 top performance in the V-tread

The curved V-shaped tread bars of the RainSport 2 enable efficient water displacement. In addition, the 3D structure helps disperse the water.

The result: The Uniroyal RainSport 2 provides greater resistance to aquaplaning.

Short braking distances on wet and dry roads.

Short braking distances are one of the principal features of the new Uniroyal RainSport 2. It doesn't matter whether it's raining or not, your car will quickly come to a standstill. In the dry, the curved V-shaped tread bars ensure even pressure distribution and the entire contact rests on the road.

In the wet, owing to its new rubber compound, the tyre is able to easily key into the road's surface.

Long tyre life.

VAI (Visual Alignment Indicator) The tyre is provided with indicators for one-sided wear and therefore shows whether tracking and/or camber adjustment are optimal.

Any errors can therefore be corrected in good time, so nothing stands in the way of a long tyre life.

sould be quite a few difrent size's to pick from price shown is for 195/45/16

You should really add the size in there somewhere

Camskill are good and often have quite good deals

Specs of the tyre might be useful, as they don't have them for my car

Headline is misleading - suggests you get two tyres for £57.50 (now that really would be a deal!).

thats because the op has altered the headline as he states in the above posts if you had read them:whistling:

have 17 inch rainsports on my car and can recommend.

I think I'll stick to my £14 a tyre cheap china rubber special thanks. I went to local tyre place the other day and one tyre cost £14 including fitting. I couldn't believe how cheap it was. I'm not a rally driver so I don't need the fancy tyres and I've had no problems with the cheap ones before. And no I'm not skidding all over the road and killing children and they don't last 2 days and then need replacing.

Only £56.30 at mytyres.co.uk - this isn't really a deal at all.

I had these fitted (17") to the front of my car when I bought it second-hand (and cheap Federal tyres on the back) - they were pretty poor in the rain, in spite of having plenty of tread on. The Federals on the back were death traps incidentally, although I've since read some good reviews. Whipped them all off and fitted Toyo Proxies all around, which was a massive improvement; now running Kumho KU31's which are also excellent.

Tyres however are very subjective, and a sticking point on many car forums. However, to anyone who thinks that budget tyres are acceptable - I'd have to query what price they put on being able to stop in an accident, as premium tyres will almost certainly stop them more quickly and safely...

Well they clearly are acceptable otherwise we wouldn't be allowed to buy them. You have fun spending all your money on things sold to you through fear.

They may be legal but they are not clever (and nor are you). Take care and please don't drive on the same roads as me - especially if it's raining.

Not available in 235/45/17 so I will be getting some Michelin at costco for 20% off

Paying more for tyre won't make it intelligent. I have never had a crash, never skidded under heavy braking, never killed a pedestrian and I'm still alive, all after buying cheap tyres. I should count my blessings and save up for more expensive tyres. Maybe I should buy some special oil that won't make my engine catch on fire and kill me, or maybe I should buy some expensive windows to stop the glass spontaneously combusting and killing everyone. Or maybe I should stop believing all the things they tell you to make you buy these products and go by what I know. Which is that cheap, LEGAL tyres are perfectly safe.

I beg to differ. Try going round a wet roundabout with a set of budgets on. The car barely grips the road. They may be legal, but I made the mistake of using budgets on the rear as I thought i didn't need good ones one the rear. How wrong was I?? You could feel the back end twitching even at slow speeds. I changed them with 6mm tread still left as I was sure it was going to very soon cost me a lot more than a couple of new tyres. I am not saying you have to get goodyear/Michelin etc. I have Avon on the front and rear of my car and my wife has Cooper. Both very good tyres in dry and wet. Noticed a big difference in those roundabouts.
This clip shows exactly what I was talking about. They test Avon against budget against performance tyres youtube.com/wat…ted
Or maybe we are all wrong, the major manufacturers paid top gear to make them look good and you are, of course, still right?? :roll:

I agree there are some really bad cheap tyres about, however there are some good budget tyres, i currently have Maxxis on mine and they are very good indeed very grippy in the wet , had some Goodride in the past and they were lethal in the wet, i did have Avon but as they are a softer compound they don't last very long

I agree Maxxis are good too. They are more a mid-range like falcon and avon rather than a budget tyre though I would say. My Avons have lasted longer than the original continentals I had on so I'm happy :thumbsup:

Barum is Continetal's budget brand. According to extensive Autoexpress tests they are virtually as good as the premium brand itself (unlike many manufacturers' budgets). I've very happily gone with these on one of my cars but wouldn't go near olliehayman's chinese stuff - lives, including mine, are at stake!

This isnt some grand conspiracy; cheap tyes are a false economy and are just not as safe as a premium brand.
I bet you're the type of person who thinks smoking is safe too because someone you know smoked all their lives and it did them "no harm"

Was just looking for some rainsport types so this thread is very timely for me- will probably stick to the Vredesteins though
