Cooper Tire launches new steer tire for long-haul travel

Oct. 6, 2021
According to the tire manufacturer, the Roadmaster RM832+ EM steer tire features a patent-pending decoupling rib, which promotes even wear on long-haul journeys and provides the tire with added durability against curbing when driving in urban areas.

Cooper Tire has added a new tire to its Roadmaster brand dedicated to long-haul travel. The Roadmaster RM832+ EM steer tire is SmartWay-verified and features 18/32nds of tread depth, along with a wide footprint, to help distribute weight more efficiently and ultimately improve treadwear. In addition, it features a patent-pending decoupling rib, which promotes even wear on long-haul journeys and helps give the tire added durability against curbing when driving in urban areas.

According to Gary Schroeder, executive director of Cooper’s global truck and bus tire business, the Roadmaster RM832+ EM provides exceptional value to small fleets and owner-operators. 

“We’ve designed this tire to be tough, but it’s also cost-effective thanks to the tire’s fuel efficiency. It features our Roadmaster Energy Max compounding, which allows the tire to meet U.S. government greenhouse gas standards,” Schroeder said. “The tire is ahead of the curve in low rolling resistance and is backed by a six-year, two-retread warranty, made possible in large part due to the tire’s four-belt, high-tensile steel casing.”

Adding to the tire’s durability is a patented stone ejector design, which features a stepped groove wall in the tread pattern. 

“Stone drilling can end a tire’s life prematurely,” Schroeder said. “The technology Cooper has developed for this new tire helps reduce stone drilling in an effort to preserve the integrity of the casing for multiple retreads.”
