Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. is showcasing three new premium Roadmaster commercial truck tires at this week's Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas. The new tires include the RM872 long-haul trailer tire, the RM852 long-haul highway tire, and the RM256 regional drive tire.

The RM872(EM) is the newest addition to the Roadmaster line of fuel-efficient SmartWay-verified tires. This premium long-haul trailer tire has been extensively tested to deliver exceptional performance along with excellent fuel efficiency, says Cooper. The RM872 features unique shoulder grooves and micro-sipes that provide outstanding resistance to shoulder wear. Stone ejectors located in the bottom of the tread grooves protect against stone penetration to enhance casing integrity.

The RM852 is Roadmaster’s newest long-haul drive tire. The 3-D micro-gauge sipes, along with a solid shoulder design, offer improved traction in challenging weather conditions. The tread lugs are uniquely designed to resist squirm and promote even wear. The RM852 has a deep 30/32nd tread depth along with premium tread compounding to provide exceptional mileage to help lower fleet operating expenses.

The RM256 is a regional SmartWay-verified drive tire. The tread compound is specifically formulated for fuel efficiency, while also providing the traction a regional drive tire requires. The robust tie-bars in the shoulder area help fight irregular wear and promote extended tread wear. In addition, the RM256 is offered with Roadmaster’s casing warranty.
