Cooper rolls out sport truck tire
Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has introduced its newest hybrid sport truck tire, the Cooper Zeon LTZ. The tire will initially be available in nine sizes.
Those sizes, which include eight popular SUV fitments, will range from 18 inches to 24 inches in rim diameter. More sizes, including 16 inches through 20 inches, are scheduled to be introduced during the first quarter of 2009.
"This tire follows the successful launch of the high performance sport truck tire, the Cooper Zeon XSTA, earlier this year," says Hal Gardner, Cooper’s vice president of marketing.
The LTZ contains dual Z-shaped sipes on each tread lug, an all-season tread compound, "lug locks" between tread blocks and other features.
