The Rain Max 2 summer tyre is designed for maximum performance in the wet. Ideal for vans and light trucks.
When you're carrying precious cargo - whether it's parcels or people - you need tyres you can rely on. The Rain Max 2 has special arrow-shaped grooves on its tread, as well as three large circumferential channels, which force water away from the tyre, protecting you from aquaplaning.
The tyre has a completely new tread pattern structure, with an increased number of grooves, to cut through road surface water, and multiple gripping edges. These give you short braking distances on wet and dry roads, as well as improved handling and optimised cornering stability.
The stiff tread ribs and lateral grooves provide an even pressure distribution when the tyre meets the road surface. This reduces friction, giving you grater fuel economy and increases the tyre's long service life.
promobil tested summer tyres for vans and mobile homes. The tyre size tested in 2010 was 235/65 R 16 C. Tyres of this size are typically fitted on Mercedes Sprinter vans and their cousins like the VW Crafter. Corner handling on a wet surface let the Uniroyal Rain Max 2 demonstrate what a real rain tyre is made of: the Sprinter simply shot through the water section at 82 km/h with a lateral acceleration of 4.15 m/s².
