The Uniroyal Tire Paw Touring All-Season is attractive to tire dealers "looking to optimize shelf space while having adequate inventory on hand," says Michelin.

The new Uniroyal Tiger Paw Touring All-Season is designed for passenger cars, minivans, CUVs and SUVs. It is available in 114 sizes that cover more than 196 million of the 245 million vehicles on the road today, said Olivia Le Meur, Uniroyal brand director for Michelin North America Inc.

"Uniroyal’s newest tire offers value to consumers and tire dealers. This line of tires covers nearly the entire market in America, from a compact car with 14-inch wheels to a full-size SUV with 22-inch wheels.

"For consumers, this tire brings dependability and protection. For our dealers, this tire meets the needs of customers who demand longevity and affordability."

Of the 114 new sizes, 50 are 18-inch and above. The company says the size complement meets consumer demand for larger wheel sizes.

The tire's tread pattern features an all-season compound and high sipe density for all-season traction; biting edges for rain, light snow and muddy conditions; and an optimized footprint for even tread wear.

Michelin backs the Tiger Paw Touring All-Season with the following:

* a 45-day ride guarantee;

* a 75,000-mile limited tread wear warranty for H-rated sizes; and

* a 65,000-mile warranty for V-rated sizes.

The Tiger Paw Touring All-Season is the third product currently available in the Tiger Paw family of tires, joining the Tiger Paw GTZ All-Season 2 and the Tiger Paw Ice & SnowTM 3. To see all available sizes and detailed photos of the Tiger Paw Touring All-Season, visit www.uniroyaltires.com.
