uniroyal Rainsport 3 or Goodyear Eagle F1 3

Tyre time again, has anybody got any experience of these two tyres or can recommend anything else for around the same money. Sizes I'm after are 255/30/19 and 235/35/19 and I'm taking off Hankooks which were ok but looked terrible on the wheel, no rim protector and always looked too small and stretched.
Cheers

I have both. Uniroyal on my wife's car,and goodyear on my 3 series.

Both are excellent, offering loads of grip in the wet and dry. The goodyear seem to be wearing slightly better though, but the uniroyal are cheaper. So if imagine it's much of a muchness.

To be honest, I'll probably fit another set of the Goodyear to my car when it needs them, as they're an excellent tyre.

Hope you get sorted.

i run Goodyear Eagle F1 3's on my e46 Rears, hard Tyre so will take a little to warm up, but once warm the grip is unbelievable, would definitely get them again.

I was going to buy the rain sport 3 untill I found out when fitted the tread looks different from one side to the other. Most people would not have an issue with this, but I would of driven me mad.

Eagle F1s are great in the dry/warm. Sidewalls are a little soft, even with XL load sidewalls.

However, if you plan to drive your car in the wet, damp or cold on a car with a bit of oomph, avoid them like the plague. Absolutely terrible grip, they’re like skid pan training with all the wheel spins and sliding.

I liked the rainsports but the sidewalls were a little to soft. I had the f1 2s and they were brilliant.
