The RM180+(EM), which is SmartWay verified, is ideal for long haul applications. The tire features a highway tread pattern and optimized footprint to promote even wear. Combined with high tensile strength four-belt construction, the tire is designed to deliver long tread mileage, durability and retreadability, plus low rolling resistance for improved fuel economy.

“Heavier steer axles are becoming increasingly more common in the market, and the addition of load range H to the Roadmaster RM180+(EM) aligns this product’s offerings with the needs of our customers,” says Gary Schroeder, director of Cooper’s truck and bus tire business. “The Roadmaster RM180+(EM) is a premium product that’s been verified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay Transport Partnership as a low rolling resistance tire, meaning it can help fleets continue to be more cost efficient. It’s also backed by a strong warranty and the quality that’s behind the Roadmaster name, making it a popular choice for long haul applications."
