Cooper Adds Size to Roadmaster RM332 WB Tire
Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has added size 385/65R22.5 in load range L to its Roadmaster RM332 WB commercial tire line.
Cooper introduced the RM332 WB in size 425/65R22.5 in load range L in April. The Roadmaster RM332 line is a premium, wide-base steer tire for mixed service applications.
The company says the RM332 WB tire has a deep 23/32nds of tread depth to provide extended tread life in severe, high scrub applications. A cut and chip resistant compound is specially formulated to meet the diverse performance requirements of mixed service applications.
In addition, the tire features a specially designed rib-type tread pattern to withstand the rigors of heavy-haul driving, on- and off-road, while also providing long tread life and even wear. The design of the RM332 WB tire includes a protective curb bar on both sidewalls and stone protector ledges in all four circumferential grooves to help resist stone penetrations. These features help preserve the casing for retreading, according to Cooper.
To promote durability for heavy-haul fleets, the RM332 WB has four heavy-duty, full-width steel belts. The new RM332 WB is backed by a Roadmaster warranty that offers two retreads within six years.
“The deep tread and cut and chip resistant compound our engineering team developed for this tire are essential for fleets operating in on- and off-road conditions,” says Gary Schroeder, director of commercial vehicle and global OEM sales.
“Fleets are continually looking for opportunities to gain a competitive advantage and to be most cost-efficient. Our RM332 WB tire, which provides long miles to removal and is backed by a strong warranty, can help them attain these goals.”
