The United States Rubber Company was originally founded in 1892, as one of twelve original stocks on the Dow Jones Industrial Average. By 1941, The United States Rubber Company bought controlling interest in the Gillette Safety Tire Company, becoming the world’s larges supplier of Original Equipment Tires. In 1961 United States Rubber Company changed their name to Uniroyal® Inc.
In 1964, Uniroyal® adapted the Tiger as the symbol of the company; signifying tradition, preservation, and pride as the key factors in the Uniroyal® Brand products. As the Twenty-First Century continues to produce innovative products, Uniroyal® has become devoted to producing high quality, durable car and truck tires that not only look good, but also last longer then any other.
The Tiger Paw Touring Series was developed by Uniroyal®, as a high-performance tire that had the capability to maintain traction on surfaces of all four seasons. The Tiger Paw has tread that effectively evacuates water fro the surface patch, reducing the potential for hydroplaning. The Tiger Paw Touring Series comes with two possible warranties; one with a 70,000-mile tread-life warranty for the H/V rated tire, and 80,000-mile T-speed rated tread warranty.
The Tiger Paw AWP II is another tire that was produced for all season use in touring cars, specifically luxury touring automobiles. The Tread on the Tiger Paw AWP II, has outstanding grip, and noise reduction capabilities. To extend tread life, the tire delivers long, even tread-wear by equalizing stress on the contact patch. This tire has a 70,000-mile limited tread-wear warranty.
The Laredo Cross Country is an exceptional choice for the SUV and Light Truck owner. This tire features great all-season traction, enhanced off-pavement traction that helps maximize tread-life, and durability and reliability on the road.
