Tiger Paw® Ice & Snow II Is Studdable and Affordable
GREENVILLE, S.C. — (July 26, 2010) — To help value-driven consumers prepare for the upcoming winter months, Uniroyal® is introducing a new winter tire. The Uniroyal Tiger Paw® Ice & Snow II launches Aug. 1, 2010, in 29 sizes. The tire, designed for a wide range of passenger cars from subcompact to full-size, provides both durability and reliability for driving in severe winter conditions at an affordable price.
“The tire is designed to perform in all weather conditions, but excels in cold, icy, wet and snowy weather,” said Andy Koury, winter category manager. “We used the latest technology to help the tire maintain adhesion and flexibility in low temperatures, thus improving its cold weather grip.”
The tire is molded for studs to enhance ice traction and meets the Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) severe snow traction performance requirements. Also built-in is a highly siped tread surface, deep tread grooves and a winter adapted tread compound. The tire also includes computer-optimized variable pitch tread elements synchronized to reduce noise for a quieter winter drive.
At the heart of every Tiger Paw tire is Uniroyal’s signature DuraShield® construction, which is a unique combination of features for durability, dependability and performance. Other key aspects include high density casing, dual-compound tread, high strength sidewalls and high strength beads.
The Uniroyal Tiger Paw Ice & Snow II will begin shipping Aug. 1, 2010. Interested dealers should contact their MAST account representative or 1-877-Uniroyal for further details. The following are the 29 sizes:
