    Anyone ever own a set? Need new tires car came with Birdgestones but when researching these Uniroyal Tiger Paw GTZ get much higher consumer ratings.

    Input appreciated.

    I did find out Uniroyal is owned by Michelin and I have owned those and loved them.

    Thanks. For the cost I think they are worth a try. The Bridgeston Serenity tires are noisy IMO.

    Had Uniroyal on a new Pontiac I bought in 1977.
    I burned those fuckers off in no time flat.


    Hope that helps. :D

    I've had Uniroyals long time ago...not the GTZ though so I can't comment on those, but generally speaking they are pretty good tires.

    I've had more success with my Infiniti G37 with the Cooper Grand Touring CS5 tire. It's a pretty good balance of performance, comfort, and thread life. I'm not an aggressive driver with these really low profile tires, but I like cornering a little harder than most and this tire hugs the corners almost as good as a performance tire. I had Hankook's performance tires and only got 25k on them barely...These Coopers I had nearly 38k on them when I got a new set of the same tires and I could've gone over 40k easily I think, but you can feel the difference in performance when they get down to the last few thousand miles.

    Michelin's are the real deal, but I don't get any more mileage out of them than I do with the Coopers so I save the $40 per tire.

    My main desires in a tire is wet traction, quiet ride, comfortable ride. These Uniroyals scored high in all these marks and as I learned are a Micehlin tire product.

    Good deal...that's the definition of a quality touring tire.

    Sounds like these would be a good purchase. I have Continental on mine, blew out a tire last weekend from a pothole. Took 4 days to order one freaking tire

    I have learned in recent years most of the tires installed on the assembly line are not of the best quality. I had a 2014 Accord and got about 25k on the Goodyears, got flat spots on the inside ridge of the tread.

    I had Michelin on my Ford Truck from the factory.
    They sucked. Terrible tire.

    Yes...never had luck with Michelins.

    Always check the local prices on Coopers if your size exists because they're often cheaper and usually better.
