GREENVILLE, S.C. (June 22, 2010)—Michelin North America Inc.'s Uniroyal brand has launched the Tiger Paw GTZ All Season ultra-high-performance (UHP) tire, which the company will begin shipping July 1.
The tire, which a Michelin spokeswoman said is being manufactured in China, features Uniroyal's signature DuraShield technology. It includes pyramidal steel belts, insulating belt edge strips and a heavy gauge inner liner—components that are designed to help the tire absorb impact, reduce stress, run cooler and extend the life of the tire, Michelin said.
Other features of the GTZ All Season are the Tiger Claw non-directional tread design, a solid center rib and optimized tread compound for reliable performance in all seasons.
The Z-rated tire is available in 25 sizes ranging from 16 to 18 inches in diameter.
