LAS VEGAS (Nov. 6, 2014) – Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. officially launched three Roadmaster-brand commercial truck tires—including the RM852 premium long-haul drive tire, RM872 premium long-haul trailer tire and RM256 premium regional drive tire—during the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas.
In addition, Cooper previewed its RM238 premium regional all-position tire, which it said will be available in 2015. It will be available in six sizes at launch.
The RM852 is available in sizes 11R22.5 (load range G), 11R22.5 (H), 295/75R22.5 (G), 11R24.5 (G), 11R24.5 (H) and 285/75R24.5 (G). The tire features 3D micro-gauge siping along with a solid shoulder design that Cooper said offers improved traction. Other features of the tire include uniquely designed tread lugs to resist squirm and promote even wear; a 30/32nd-inch tread depth; large center and intermediate tread lugs for lateral stability; and asymmetric draft groove walls to resist stone retention and extend the life of the tire and casing, Cooper said.
