MNA Adds New Laredo AWT II

Michelin North America has introduced the Uniroyal Laredo AWT II, designed for on- and off-road applications.

The all-terrain radial offers improved tread life and wet and dry handling compared to its predecessor, the Laredo AWT, with its advanced polymer tread compound, stress-optimized contact patch and DuraShield construction, MNA said.

The Laredo AWT II will be available after July 1 in 21 sizes, including 13 S-rated P-metric and eight Q-rated LT-metric models.

Three sizes of the original AWT – 31X10.50R15 109, LT285/75R16 LRD 122/119 and P235/75R15XL 108 – will remain in the line until April 2009, MNA said.
