Top-of-the-line quality tire; Michelin has always been known for being the most comfortable high-performance tire to drive. You only have to look at the design and you will understand.

Pneu Uniroyal Tiger Paw GTZ AS

Uniroyal Tiger Paw GTZ A/S (coming in season):

A medium quality tire, this is a new product for Uniroyal in this market niche. With Asian tires continuing to grow, they have decided to remediate the situation and to create this product. Available in 18 sizes in Canada, it covers 61% of the sizes on the market for high-performance tires. This is a tire at a good price with good reliability, unlike many other products, which only have the price. On the other hand, don’t expect the efficiency of a Michelin!
