Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has added a tire to its commercial longhaul lineup, the Roadmaster RM832 EM steer tire.

The tire is SmartWay-verified and blends excellent fuel efficiency with long-miles-to-removal due to 18/32nds of tread depth, as well as an improved tread design and advanced rubber compound, according to the Findlay, Ohio-based company.

“We completely revamped our prior-generation Roadmaster steer tire, giving the new Roadmaster RM832 EM a wider footprint and a redesigned tread pattern to help ensure even wear,” Gary Schroeder, executive director of Cooper’s global truck and bus tire business, said in a release.

“Like all of our Roadmaster tires, the ultimate value is long miles to removal coupled with retreading, and that’s where our highly engineered casings come into play,” Schroeder said, adding the tire offers small fleets and owner-operators performance well beyond its price point. — Transport Topics
