Uniroyal releases new value brand winter tire
Uniroyal has released an update to its value brand winter tire, the Tiger Paw Ice and Snow 3.
The Michelin-owned brand says the tires feature technology “normally found in more expensive tires”, including 3D interlocking shoulder sipes and a high-silica winter compound.
“The Uniroyal Tiger Paw Ice and Snow 3 gives value consumers exactly what they’ve been looking for in a winter tire — smart technology that is budget wise, plus dependable performance in all winter conditions, ranging from rain to ice and snow,” said Cécile D’Ittièle, Uniroyal’s business segment manager for winter tires.
“Plus, with the introduction of 12 additional dimensions compared to its predecessor, the Uniroyal Tiger Paw Ice and Snow 3 tire now fits on more popular vehicles.”
Here it is in action:
A bit about the new Tiger Paw
Three-peak mountain snowflake-certified, the Tiger Paw Ice and Snow 3 meets the Tire and Rubber Association of Canada (TRAC) snow-traction performance requirements.
Winter traction is made possible through:
• Tread components: linear biting edges from a high number of sipes and wide lateral grooves;
• Compound components: infused with a high amount of silica that improves performance in cold weather and sub-zero temperatures by providing exceptional grip on ice1 and snow2.
The DuraShield® Construction technology provides long-wearing tread life and reliable performance through all winter conditions.
Tiger Paw Ice and Snow 3 is also molded for studs; where permitted by law, the use of number 12 studs provides enhanced winter manoeuvrability.
Sizes and availability
The tire is on sale now in 24 sizes:
Eleven additional sizes will be added in 2017, covering 68 percent of passenger-vehicle fitments in the market.
The tire will be eligible for the $40 mail-in rebate winter promotion (which runs from October 7 to December 23, 2016) when consumers purchase four Uniroyal passenger tires from participating retailers.
