Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has added three sizes to the Roadmaster RM272 tire line. The tire, which is engineered to withstand the demands of drop deck and spread axle trailers, is now available in sizes 295/75R22.5 LR H, 11R22.5 LR H and 11R24.5 LR H.
“The RM272 is one tough tire. It’s backed by a strong six-year, two-retread warranty,” says Gary Schroeder, executive director of Cooper’s truck and bus tire business. “Adding additional sizes to this popular line allows us to meet our customers’ needs with a quality Roadmaster product.”
Cooper says the RM272 features a premium, high-scrub tread compound that provides improved tread wear and long-lasting protection against cutting and chipping in spread axle trailer applications. The stone ejector ribs in the tire’s grooves help preserve the casing for retreading, and the rounded shoulder design helps minimize the effect of high lateral forces on the tire.
