LAVAL, Quebec (April 24, 2015) — Michelin North America (Canada) Inc. is making available in Canada a line of Uniroyal-branded commercial truck tires, including two that are SmartWay verified for enhanced fuel efficiency.
The new Uniroyal line comprises six tread designs, available in sizes 11R22.5 and 11R24.5.
Michelin plans to market the line as a third-tier product, complementing the Michelin and BF Goodrich brands. It will be priced at about 75 percent of the price of a BFG product, which in turn costs about 75 percent of a Michelin premium product.
Michelin said it anticipates the Uniroyal line “will meet the rising need of owner-operators, but larger fleets may find it of interest as well.”
Michelin's Industrias Michelin S.A. de C.V. unit in Mexico launched the Uniroyal truck radial line in Mexico last year, but Michelin has at this time no plans to sell the line in the U.S.
