good
Ranked #31 of 50
Finishing 31st out of 50 competitors, the Uniroyal RainSport 5 managed to secure a final rating of 'Good'. This tyre excelled on wet surfaces, showcasing impressive aquaplaning resistance and braking performance, alongside a strong grip and precise handling in wet conditions. However, its performance on dry roads received a less favorable assessment. It demonstrated significant weaknesses on dry pavement, including insufficient balanced handling and a noticeable lack of feedback through the steering wheel, which compromised driving safety. In sudden evasive maneuvers, the tendency to oversteer was pronounced, although skillful steering could prevent skidding. Despite achieving a short braking distance on dry roads, these shortcomings led to an overall satisfactory rating for dry performance. Environmentally, the Uniroyal RainSport 5 was rated as satisfactory too, with its projected lifespan and wear being marked the same. While its fuel efficiency was highlighted as relatively good due to low fuel consumption and weight, the tyre faced criticism for its environmental footprint and sustainability.
