Initial Review, 80,000 Miles on Tires
February 26, 2012

Gmc Canyon 4x4, S-10 4x4, Honda Ridgeline, Toyota 4Runner, All 4 wear LTX M/S. My Canyon just got 3rd set of LTX's, second set got 80,000 miles. S-10 is on its 4th set, it's pushing 200,000. 4Runner is still on 2nd set at 55,000 miles, truck has 130,000. Michelin was very acommoidating to warranty replace all 4 on my Ridgeline at 35,000 miles 7/32 tread left for cracking tread and sidewall. I worked in the tire industry several years back and found through experience that Michelin makes a superior product in most of their product lines. My BMW has stock 18" PS2's and My 09 V6 Accord has 18" stock Michelins. The Max performance Michelin's I have used are unprecedented for traction & handling, 25,000 for wear is common for me. Over 30 years of personal tire buying my advice is to pay a small amount more up front and in the end you will be better served for the life of your tires. I have used Goodrich, Uniroyal, Firestone, Yokohama, Goodyear,& Bridgestone, all fall short in long range performance. Only the Yokahama and Bridgestone were close in long life ride comfort, as well as tread wear. Please take my comments seriously, I have had literally hundreds of personal and business tires and Michelin as a company has serviced me better than the other manufactures. If you regularly maintain the alignment and shocks on a vehicle & check your air pressure, The Michelin will in general wear more evenly and maintain a better ride longer, not to mention service you more mileage on most of their product line.


Tire Rack Consumer Reviews: Uniroyal Truck Tires

If you want to buy truck tires, we suggest you take advantage of our collection of consumer reviews. We've got them for most of the tires in our inventory, including Uniroyal truck tires.

Laredo HD/H (Highway All-Season)
"I have a 3/4 ton truck that I drive on the highway most of the time. Very good tire for the price. Best thing for a large truck, reminds me of a semi tire in look and wear. The tire still has showed no wear yet. If you have a truck that is over 8,600 lbss and drive on road all the time, this is the tire." — Tire Rack Consumer Review, Chevrolet C2500, GA

Uniroyal Tire Reviews: A Look at the Tiger Paw Tour SR

Wednesday, December 9, 2009 by Tire Rack Team
Vehicles sold within the United States tend to feature Original Equipment All-Season tires. Developed specifically for new cars and light trucks, these tires offer an all-encompassing mix of ride quality, noise comfort, treadwear and handling. Even year-round traction, though only in lighter snow. As the tires wear out, many drivers will replace them with the same exact tire. 

Further, some drivers will purchase tires labeled as Original Equipment on other vehicles provided they meet their own vehicle/driving requirements simply because of their performance reputations. 

The Uniroyal Tiger Paw Tour SR is one such Original Equipment tire. And as we aim to provide as much information about the tire as possible, you'll find these Tire Rack Consumer Reviews quite useful:

"I purchased these tires because of the quiet, comfortable ride qualities, but have been impressed with the handling, wet and dry traction, as well as the quiet, comfortable ride quality." — Toyota Avalon XLS, LA

"I have driven on these tires for 9 months and have found them to be excellent in all types of driving and weather conditions and no sign of tread wear in over 8,000 miles." — Buick LeSabre, KS

Laredo is the name Uniroyal gave to its family of truck tires. It conveys the tire's ability to provide traction and durability in the most challenging, rugged conditions. Uniroyal truck tires are commonly seen as Original Equipment (O.E.) tires, meaning they come with the vehicle upon purchase. Yet over the years, Uniroyal truck tires have pleased consumers to the point where they're now being purchased as replacement tires. Tire Rack offers the following Uniroyal truck tires:

Laredo AWR
Laredo All Season AWP
Laredo Cross Country
