Cooper Tire is showcasing three new premium Roadmaster commercial truck tires – the RM872 long-haul trailer tire, RM852 long-haul highway tire, and RM256 regional drive tire – at this week’s SEMA Show/Global Tire Expo.
The SmartWay-verified RM872(EM) premium long-haul trailer tire delivers exceptional performance along with excellent fuel efficiency, according to Cooper, which added the tire features unique shoulder grooves and micro-sipes that provide outstanding resistance to shoulder wear. Stone ejectors located in the bottom of the tread grooves protect against stone penetration to enhance casing integrity.
The RM852 long-haul drive tire offers 3-D micro-gauge sipes, along with a solid shoulder design, for improved traction in challenging weather conditions, the tiremaker said. The tire’s tread lugs are uniquely designed to resist squirm and promote even wear, while its deep 30/32nd tread depth, along with premium tread compounding, provide exceptional mileage to help lower fleet operating expenses.
The SmartWay-verified RM256 regional drive tire features a tread compound specifically formulated for fuel efficiency, while also providing the traction a regional drive tire requires. Cooper added the robust tie-bars in the shoulder area help fight irregular wear and promote extended treadwear. The RM256 is offered with Roadmaster’s industry-leading casing warranty.
