Tire Line Features 23 Additional Sizes, Enhanced Warranties for Sedan and Mini-van Owners
Greenville, S.C. (August 29, 2005) — Uniroyal Tire is introducing 23 new sizes and enhanced warranties in its Tiger Paw® Touring tire, a comprehensive product line for sedans and mini-vans that delivers outstanding wear and handling at an affordable price. The additional sizes, including new V speed-rated tires, will be available to consumers through Uniroyal Tire dealers in September 2005.
The T speed-rated sizes features an 80,000-mile manufacturer's standard treadwear limited warranty, the longest mileage warranty ever offered on a Uniroyal® tire. The H speed-rated and V speed-rated sizes will now offer an enhanced 70,000-mile warranty.
"We’ve really invested in compound breaking technology to deliver high performance and long treadwear excellence. With a great mileage warranty, excellent dependability on wet and dry pavement and an affordable price, the Tiger Paw Touring tire is a popular choice for today’s sedan and mini-van owners," said Owen Schiano, Uniroyal Tire brand marketing director. “We’re excited to expand the line with 23 new sizes. Now, more drivers can join the millions of Americans who have already come to know and trust the Tiger Paw Touring tire.”
The touring tire category continues to grow in popularity as automakers equip a growing number of vehicles with speed-rated tires that combine a smooth and quiet ride with performance handling. The Tiger Paw Touring tire fits a broad range of today's most popular cars and mini-vans including the Chevy Impala, Dodge Stratus SE Coupe, Nissan Maxima and Toyota Camry LE. With the additional 23 sizes, the Tiger Paw Touring tire will be offered in a total of 45 sizes and will cover almost every size for sedans and mini-vans.
During testing, the Tiger Paw Touring tire demonstrated outstanding wear, dry braking, handling and wet braking.
