Cooper Introduces New SmartWay Tire to Roadmaster Line

Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has added a new SmartWay-verified, long haul drive tire to its Roadmaster commercial truck tire line - the RM852(EM).

Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has added a new SmartWay-verified, long haul drive tire to its Roadmaster commercial truck tire line – the RM852(EM).

The RM852(EM)’s tread compound and 30/32nds of tread provide long lasting mileage, and the tire features a solid shoulder design to offer improved traction in challenging weather, Cooper said. Additionally, the tire features 3D Micro-Gauge siping, with full depth and variable sipe density to help maintain wet traction and stability.

“Our engineers designed this tire with a compound that offers not only lower rolling resistance for fuel economy, but also a deep tread that can stand up to the demands of the road. It showcases the quality for which our Roadmaster tires are known,” said Gary Schroeder, director of Cooper’s truck and bus tire business, which includes the Roadmaster brand.
