Uniroyal Tires Reviews
Uniroyal Tires might not be on of the biggest names in the tire industry any more, but it certainly has a long history.
Founded in 1892 as the United States Rubber Company, the brand was one of the first 12 companies to be listed on the Dow Jones Industrial Average.
Depending on where you live in the world, Uniroyal tires are a subsidiary of either Michelin or Continental Tires. The brand has been owned and operated by Michelin in North America, Colombia and Peru.
Again, while Uniroyal might not be a household name today, in the era of the muscle car it was tremendously popular with its Tiger Paw brand of tires, fitted to cars like the Pontiac GTO.
In the truck and SUV off-road space, as well as the on-road-focused crossover segment, Uniroyal currently manufactures five different models, all under the Laredo brand name.
The Laredo AWT3 is an all-season al-terrain tire built for pickup trucks and SUVs and is designed for on- and off-road grip. Sizing is limited with fitments in 15- to 17-inches available.
The Laredo Cross Country is an all-season tire for light-trucks and SUVs designed for good grip in the wet and comes with a 55,000 mile limited treadwear warranty.
The Laredo Cross Country Tour is designed for SUVs and crossovers. Also an al-season tire with wet-weather traction in mind it comes with a 60,000 mile limited treadwear warranty.
All three of these tires come with a 50,000 mile limited treadwear warranty, or better.
Finally, there’s the Lardeo HD/H and HD/T, both of which are designed more for commercial applications and are available only in 16-inch fitments.
With some fitments for crossovers, Uniroyal also offers the Tiger Paw Ice & Snow tire, which is certified as a proper winter tire and features the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol.

Are Uniroyal Tires Good?
Once a more prestigious brand, Uniroyal is now a second tier brand. That doesn’t mean the products aren’t quality, however. While more budget focused with older tire technology and tread life warranties that are less than premium brands, you can rest assured that as a division of Michelin these tires are built to top standards for safety and quality control.
