Uniroyal® Tires Introduces Tiger Paw® GTZ All-Season 2 and Laredo® AWT 3 Tires
GREENVILLE, S.C., March 14, 2018 — Uniroyal® Tires has launched two new products, the ultra-high-performance Tiger Paw® GTZ All-Season 2 and the all-terrain Laredo® AWT 3. Long known for manufacturing dependable tires at a great value for consumers, Uniroyal is supporting the new products with improved mileage warranties.
The Tiger Paw® GTZ All-Season 2 is the next-generation ultra-high-performance tire from Uniroyal. The tire will have 10 more sizes available than its predecessor, covering 82 percent of the ultra-high-performance market. The 42 sizes in the range will be available in rim diameters from 16 to 20 inches.
The Tiger Paw® GTZ All-Season 2 offers the following technologies for everyday driving confidence:
- Uniroyal’s Tru-Last technology, which is designed to distribute stress evenly across the tire footprint for consistent wear
- Wide circumferential tread grooves which help provide better performance in rain
- Traction snow bars that are designed to compact loose snow for outstanding starting and stopping
- New all-season rubber compound, which helps with wet traction
The tire also features an upgraded speed rating on select sizes. Previously a “W” rating for all sizes, the new tire offers an available “Y” speed rating on certain sizes for high-performance sports cars capable of speeds up to 186 mph. To give consumers more confidence with the Tiger Paw® GTZ All-Season 2, the tire features a 50,000-mile warranty, including fitments with a “Y” speed rating.
“The Tiger Paw® GTZ All-Season 2 represents an unprecedented combination of performance and value offered by the Uniroyal brand. The increased speed rating, warranty and range of available sizes on our next-generation ultra-high-performance tire will reach an underserved segment of performance drivers,” said Alonso Tiscareno, brand director for Uniroyal, a unit of Michelin North America.
The Laredo® AWT 3 brings Uniroyal consumers an affordable all-terrain tire that delivers outstanding performance on- and off-road. The tire provides dependable all-terrain traction at a reasonable price, and is backed by a 50,000-mile warranty.
“The Laredo AWT 3 demonstrates Uniroyal’s commitment to increase all-terrain tire offerings. We want to offer a tire that performs on- and off-road and delivers the Uniroyal value our consumers expect,” Tiscareno said.
