I'm a huge fan of the outgoing tyre, though they are very prone to puncture. I my experience.

You think so @Graham ? Can’t say I’ve ever noticed a difference between Uniroyal or any other car tyre.

Time will tell with these new bad boys!

The Rainsport 3s are a great all round tyre but I’m happy to see the 5s will last a good bit longer.

Have the rain sport 3s in a 255/35/19 on our b8 avant and they wear great and no complaints here!

Is there more sizes available now the rainsport 5 don't come up on a black circles search so maybe they're not available yet. I need 2 235 45 17 for the Passat and the new rain sports are on the radar. Could you also quote for other brands thanks ivan.

@gary1365 the RainSport3 is out of production and the RainSport5 isn’t available for sale yet- not great ☹

We do have Bridgestone T001 and RE050A at great price of £84 each plus your 10% discount code online at www.ivankerrtyres.com bringing it down to £75.60 each, making a great price an amazing price!

That price for those Bridgestones is fantastic. I'll book myself in online next time I'm heading down to Bangor to visit the parents. I was debating firing on 4 all seasons or winter tyres but I'll not bother I'm not over the coleraine mountain every morning any more. Wait and see the first winter in years I haven't put winters on and it'll snow for weeks.

I liked the rain sport 2 never tried the 3. What happened to the rainsport 4 lol.

Fun fact that the number 4 is unlucky in China... apparently. That’s why you’ll never see a Continental product, including Uniroyal, with the number 4 in it’s name.

What about continental grand prix 4000 lol. I was just out there and swapped the continentals from the front to the back theres more meat on them than I thought there was. I'm going to hang on until the rainsport 5 come on the market unless the sailun tyres I just swapped onto the front are terrible.

These might be an option for next years Targas as the tyre regs are outlawing all the trackday type tyres that have become the norm over the last few years. I've been using a combination of rainsport 3 for autotest or rain experts for rougher targas this year and they have done ok. I did two autotests in one week and smoked a set of 4 in the summer which hurt a bit.. 8o|

That’s a bicycle tyre yeh? Bicycles aren’t that popular over in China...

😂 I must pass that on to my rep and give him an education!

Big fan of the Gatorskins 🐊
Gatorskins are like riding on plastic lol. I fell out with continental after a brand new gp5000 tubeless got a sidewall and tread cut spraying me with sealant. I got stranded at the side of the road as it was too tight a fit to fit with a tube. I was annoyed at being 60 or 70 quid out of pocket too it was literally my second ride on the tyre. Took me and the boy that owns the bike shop to wrestle it on the rim. I still have it lying somewhere I dont have the heart to throw it out.
