Uniroyal tires on 2017 Touring
2nd owner. 30K miles.
I bought this from a dealer.
Tires are Uniroyal and dealer said that's how it came to them.
Any idea why the previous owner (who they say they can't put me in contact with) would substitute these?
Hard ride and a bit noisy.
Not on Honda's list of covered tires (Bridgestone, Continentals, etc.) and dealer couldn't provide paperwork from previous owner.
Personal preference maybe?
Uniroyal are cheap. Probably why previous owner went with them.

If replacing rubber, have a serious look at "General Tire Altimax RT43". I keep reading great reviews of this all season tire.
Hope this helps...

They are pretty good. Had a set on a Grand Prix. My fusion I put Conti Purecontacts on it and loved them.

Why the change? We can guess but never know. My guess is the PO suffered bad tire damage and was told he had to replace all four-so he went cheap.
if the OEM tires were Hankooks, they probably were down to minimum tread by around 25k miles if I had to guess. Depends on if the vehicle was mostly in town driving (which takes a toll on the tires) or straight freeway driving which is pretty free rolling and not prone to wear tread on the outer tread channels.
Personally, I always replace with high end Michelins on my Honda's, but there are plenty of good tire choices for replacement tires, so owners generally go with their established preference.
In my view, always go with higher end tires, and not cut corners to save a few dollars. But that's me.
The Uniroyal Tiger Paw tires are made by Michelin. Uniroyal is their economy brand.
The fiancées Camry has them and they aren’t that bad.
