Studdable winter tires can be equipped with optional metal studs for enhanced ice traction. These tires are branded with mountain/snowflake symbol to meet severe snow service standards. Studdable winter tires feature traditional winter tire compounds with aggressive tread patterns to handle snow and slush.
Uniroyal Tiger Paw Ice & Snow 3 features a specialized winter compound designed to maintain flexibility and adhesion at the molecular level in extreme cold. The compound is molded into a directional tread pattern with wide lateral grooves and shoulder channels to evacuate water and slush from the contact patch. The high sipe density tread surface features winter-focused zigzag sipes and 3D interlocking sipes in the shoulders to provide bite in snowy or icy conditions, and the Tiger Paw Ice & Snow 3 is molded to accept optional #12 studs for additional mechanical grip on hard-packed snow and ice. The internal construction of the Tiger Paw Ice & Snow 3 consists of twin steel belts on top of a two-ply, polyester casing to balance strength and durability with ride comfort. Tiger Paw Ice & Snow 3 tires exceed the industry’s severe snow service requirements and are branded with the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol. Install Tiger Paw Ice & Snow 3 tires in sets of four only. Tiger Paw Ice & Snow 3 is molded to accept optional TSMI #12 silver-colored metallic winter studs.
