Michelin adds sizes to Uniroyal Laredo line

April 2, 2007

Michelin North America Inc. (MNA) is adding four sizes to its Uniroyal Laredo Cross Country light truck/SUV tire, which brings the tire's total size line-up to 36.

The new sizes are P255/65R16 106 S, LT235/85R16 LRE, P255/65R17 108 S and P265/65R17 110 S. These sizes give the Laredo Cross Country 90% coverage of light truck and SUV fitments, say MNA officials.

The tire contains MNA's proprietary TrU-Form Construction, which "creates a rounder tire to help ensure uniformity and durability with a highway ride that's extremely quiet."

Other features include open tread grooves and a square, "stress-optimized" contact patch.
