Uniroyal Rainsport 3 tyres on 19s

Anybody using the above tyres on the Ti 19" wheels?. Opinions experiences of them?. Currently got P Zero Nero with a few 1000 left on them only, happy with them but quite pricey.

159 SW Ti 2.0

I've had these fitted to the rears of my Ti a couple of weeks ago. Still got P Zeros on the fronts. I bought the Uniroyals for their low road noise and wet grip performance. Can't say I've noticed any quieter drive. But have been meaning to swap the Uniroyals up front, as the Pirellis are getting low, and starting to slip.

The Uniroyals I've had fitted had no rim protector, not sure if you can get them with this tyre. Paid just under £300 for both tyres fitted by Tyres on the Drive.

Highly recommended. I have put them on my wife Ti SW for the last 22000 miles have to say they have been excellent with her getting just under 18000 miles out of the fronts ( to be fair she's steady on the throttle )

I bought another 4 just over 6 months ago from Camskill with each tyre costing £110 - so great value as well

I've got 4 (18" though) on by Q4 - very impressed, quiet and grippy. Remember they have 'shark skin technology' so that must be good!

Mrs Ken has 4 on her Abarth Punto Evo and Son of Ken has just had 4 fitted on his Fiat Bravo T-Jet 150.

We live in Central Scotland and Son lives in the Peak District so wet weather performance was high on the list of requirements.

I have them on my Brera at the moment, hasn't been wet enough to tell the difference, but they do seem great quality tyres especially for about 110 per tyre

This is weird,as I was wondering if the rain sports were available on 19".
I've already got them fitted as 15" on my Peugeot partner and they have been superb.quiet and grippy in the wet
