Cooper Launches Second-Gen Pro Series Long Haul Steer Tire

Replacing its predecessor, this offering is now available in size 295/75R22.

Cooper Tire has launched its new Pro Series Long Haul Steer 2 tire. According to Cooper, the tire will help reduce costs for fleets. The tire replaces its predecessor, the Cooper Pro Series Long Haul Steer tire. The Pro Series Long Haul Steer 2 tire and is available now in size 295/75R22.5 (load range G and H), with additional sizes becoming available in October.

The Cooper Pro Series Long Haul Steer 2 tire features a patent-pending shoulder decoupling rib. This provides added toughness on the edge of the tire to minimize irregular wear and damage caused by curbing, the company says.

According to the company, the new tire features Cooper’s ECO (Energy Conservation Optimization) technology, which combines tire design, compounding and construction to provide an ultra-low rolling resistance tire that exceeds SmartWay standard requirements by 15%. It also offers lower rolling resistance than EPA greenhouse gas (GHG) standards set for 2027.

The Cooper Pro Series Long Haul Steer 2 tire also provides 18/32nds of tread depth and features a wide footprint. This helps distribute weight more efficiently and promotes long and even wear, as well as enhanced traction.

Helping improve tire maintenance is Cooper’s Wear Square on the tire’s shoulder ribs. This is a visual indicator that shows tread depth through five different evolving image icons. A “square” shape indicates full tread depth, while an “L” shape shows only half the tread remains. An icon also shows when the tire should be pulled for retreading or replacement. Since the Wear Square is placed on both sides of the tire, it also serves as an alignment indicator. If the icons on each side don’t match, the tire technician knows there is an alignment problem or an uneven tire wear issue and can take corrective measures, Cooper says.

The Cooper Pro Series Long Haul Steer 2 tire features four-belt steel design construction and a seven-year, two-retread warranty. The tire is also warranted for full replacement value for the first 50% of treadwear, according to the company.
