Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has added a SmartWay-verified long-haul drive tire to its Roadmaster commercial truck tire line, the RM852(EM).
The company says the new RM852(EM) has a unique tread compound and 30/32nds of tread to provide long lasting mileage. A solid shoulder design offers improved traction in challenging weather. The tire also 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,” says Gary Schroeder, director of truck and bus tire business for Cooper.
“For fleets, choosing SmartWay verified tires is often a good choice to help manage operational costs as they frequently provide fuel savings. At Roadmaster, we are committed to continually developing tires that meet the needs of our customers and help them be more cost efficient by offering durable tires with long miles to removal, like the new RM852(EM).”
