New Tiger Paw Targets Family Rides

Michelin North America has added the Uniroyal Tiger Paw AS65, a 65,000-mile radial targeting a wide range of vehicles, from compacts to minivans.

“The AS65 gives value consumers exactly what they’ve been asking for in a tire – dependability, performance and long wear,” said Kaz Holley, Uniroyal brand director. “Between the center rib and the block placement, this is the most aggressive tire we’ve added to the Tiger Paw line. Our customers are sure to notice how well it handles in any road condition.”

The new tire features Uniroyal DuraShield technology, which MNA said includes two heavy-duty polyester carcass plies to absorb impact and carry heavy loads, pyramidal belt construction with natural rubber encasing steel belts for greater durability and longer tread life. Heavy gauge liners provide added endurance, and insulating belt edge strips reduce heat at the belt edges, the company said.

The tread design includes siping, a solid center rib and circumferential and lateral flow-through grooves for all-weather grip and even treadwear.

The T-rated AS65 will be released on June 1 in 27 P-metric and euro metric sizes, covering 13- through 18-inch wheel diameters. (Tire Review/Akron)
