Uniroyal Tires Debut the New Tiger Paw Ice & Snow 3
Featuring technology normally found in more expensive tires, like 3-D interlocking shoulder sipes and a high-silica winter compound, the Uniroyal Tiger Paw Ice & Snow 3 tire will provide consumers with more winter performance for less.1
"The Uniroyal Tiger Paw Ice & Snow 3 gives value consumers exactly what they've been looking for in a winter tire – smart technology that is budget wise, plus dependable performance in all winter conditions, ranging from rain to ice and snow," said Cécile D'Ittièle, business segment manager for winter tires, Uniroyal Tires. "Plus, with the introduction of 12 additional dimensions compared to its predecessor, the Uniroyal Tiger Paw Ice & Snow 3 tire now fits on more popular vehicles."
Three-peak mountain snowflake-certified, the Tiger Paw Ice & Snow 3 meets the Tire and Rubber Association of Canada (TRAC) snow-traction performance requirements. Winter traction is made possible through:
Tread components: linear biting edges from a high number of sipes and wide lateral grooves;
Compound components: infused with a high amount of silica that improves performance in cold weather and sub-zero temperatures by providing exceptional grip on ice1 and snow2.
The DuraShield® Construction technology provides long-wearing tread life and reliable performance through all winter conditions.
The new Tiger Paw Ice & Snow 3 is also molded for studs; where permitted by law, the use of #12 studs provides enhanced winter maneuverability. On sale as of Sept. 1, 2016, the Tiger Paw Ice & Snow 3 is offered in 24 sizes.
