Michelin North America Inc. has added the ultra-high-performance Tiger Paw GTZ All-Season 2 and the all-terrain Laredo AWT 3 to the Uniroyal brand.

The company says both tires offer improved mileage warranties compared to the prior models they replace.

Tiger Paw GTZ All-Season 2

The Tiger Paw GTZ All-Season 2 will have 10 more sizes than its predecessor, covering 82% of the ultra-high-performance market. The 42 sizes in the range will be available in rim diameters from 16 to 20 inches.

Michelin says 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; and

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 a 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 Laredo AWT 3 is designed to provide all-season performance on- and off-road for SUVs and pickup trucks. It has a 50,000-mile treadwear warranty.
