Wet Performance
The RainSport 5s have really impressed me with their dry performance – excellent turn-in and high-speed stability! In wet conditions, they truly shine, offering unmatched security on poor road surfaces. One downside is the slight increase in fuel consumption, but it's a small trade-off for the overall performance. In light snow, they handle decently, providing traction without the "wooden" feel of typical summer tires. Overall, these tires have exceeded my expectations, and I highly recommend them for their versatility and reliability.
Comments
I've been driving my Peugeot 207 SW Outdoor with these for over 800 miles now. Living in northern Greece, I've experienced a wide range of weather conditions. I previously used the RainSport 3s for 42,000km, changing every two years.

I switched to these after retiring my Bridgestones on my BMW 330d M Sport. The RainSport 5s give me so much confidence in both wet and dry conditions. The grip is fantastic, and they wear well even with spirited driving. The price is great too – I won't consider anything else for my car!

Bought these for my BMW Z4, and they were terrifying! At 70mph in the dry, the car felt like it was floating, with no stability. Even at 50mph, there was barely any grip. After just 300 miles, I replaced them with Pilot Sport 5s, which transformed the car's handling. These are the worst tires I've ever experienced.

The RainSport 5s have really impressed me with their dry performance – excellent turn-in and high-speed stability! In wet conditions, they truly shine, offering unmatched security on poor road surfaces. One downside is the slight increase in fuel consumption, but it's a small trade-off for the overall performance. In light snow, they handle decently, providing traction without the "wooden" feel of typical summer tires. Overall, these tires have exceeded my expectations, and I highly recommend them for their versatility and reliability.

I've been driving my Peugeot 207 SW Outdoor with these for over 800 miles now. Living in northern Greece, I've experienced a wide range of weather conditions. I previously used the RainSport 3s for 42,000km, changing every two years.

I switched to these after retiring my Bridgestones on my BMW 330d M Sport. The RainSport 5s give me so much confidence in both wet and dry conditions. The grip is fantastic, and they wear well even with spirited driving. The price is great too – I won't consider anything else for my car!

Bought these for my BMW Z4, and they were terrifying! At 70mph in the dry, the car felt like it was floating, with no stability. Even at 50mph, there was barely any grip. After just 300 miles, I replaced them with Pilot Sport 5s, which transformed the car's handling. These are the worst tires I've ever experienced.
