Cooper Wins Standard Truck Tire Fitment with Strick Trailers
Truck trailer manufacturer Strick Trailers has chosen Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. as its standard, premium tire supplier.
Starting next month, all Strick trailers will be equipped with the SmartWay-verified Cooper Pro Series LHT trailer tire, size 295/75R22.5
"Like all components that are Strick standards, these tires have been extensively tested and proven to deliver exceptional performance, along with excellent fuel efficiency for the long haul," say Strick officials.
“Everyone’s best is our standard,” says Rod Farlow, vice president of materials, Strick Trailers. “It is important that we spec smart, innovative components that will exceed our customers’ expectations, and the Pro Series LHT certainly adheres to that criteria.”
According to Gary Schroeder, executive director of Cooper’s Global Truck and Bus Tire Business, the Cooper PRO Series provides fleets with outstanding value for long haul operations.
Along with a V-shaped tread pattern design to help protect against irregular wear, the Pro Series LHT features a unique Cooper Wear Square on the tire’s shoulder ribs to indicate when the tire should be pulled for retreading.
