Noticed these at BJs Wholesale . They have many deep sipes to base of the tire . May purchase these . Many positive reviews from consumers and are priced close to that of the RT43s' . We've been using the 43s' for many years . Here's the site , https://www.uniroyaltires.com/products/tiger-paw-touring-all-season .

Tread elements seem wide open and aggressive. Hmm...84H? I guess it's because of the 175 width.

Lotsa sizes available. Shows you how well received the Tiger Paw name still is.

LOVED thier very first commercial back in the '60's

The "Tiger Paw" name has been around for years. It looks like the tire has evolved/been improved tho. I would be interested in the noise level of these tires.

If pricing is similar I'd go with the RT43's. I've sold quite a few sets of these Uniroyals to customers looking for a low cost option. They last well but tend to get noisy as they age.

They sure don't look quiet, goes to show you can't always tell. I've had better luck with Tiger Paws and BFG's than I have Michelins.

Tiger Paw touring performed badly and were in the bottom 5 tires in Consumer Reports last year, and the bottom 5 also included Milestar and Westlake.

I've had two sets, neither were these. From my foggy memory. The first replaced some OEM Michelins on an '02 Elantra are were better than the Michelins. The second was on a Kia Rio and IIRC got progressively noisier. Both wore OK, although I don't think they'd last 70K, gave both cars to the same kid who totaled both, so we'll never know. Don't think either were sporty, but they weren't awful either.

And a word of caution (since this is an International website)

In the US, Michelin has control of the Uniroyal brand name, but in Europe, it is owned by Continental. I'm not sure of other places. (OK, Wikipedia says that Michelin owns the name in North America, Columbia, and Peru, and Continental owns it everywhere else.)

OEM tires are consistently junk though, regardless of brand label on the sidewall. They are the result of a low bid and are built to a price point and not built to go past the first 30,000 miles. You want to see junk tires: take a look look at OEM Continentals. Yet both Michelin and Continental make top aftermarket tires. Compare aftermarket to aftermarket though, and Michelin usually is at or near the top, and Tiger Paw never is that I’ve seen.

I didn't have issues with OEM ContiProContacts, they were 500 A A tires, and got them past 30,000 miles before I wanted something a little grippier on a AWD car.

It's not like with the ContiProContacts (no suffix, as in later OEM version), they took their standard 500 A A tires, and changed the tire to a lower wear rating.

Ah …… Mmmmm ……. Not exactly.

Long version: Barry's Tire Tech: OE Tires

Short version:

The car manufacturers issue specs for tires and among the specs is one for low rolling resistance - and to get that, treadwear and/or traction (especially wet traction) are sacrificed - something consumers find important.

Further, the price is one of the last things done in the qualification process
