Cooper Tire & Rubber Company has added to its Roadmaster commercial truck tire line with the introduction of the RM852(EM), a longhaul drive tire that is US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay-verified.

The RM852(EM) has a unique tread compound and 30/32nds of tread to provide long-lasting mileage and features a solid shoulder design to offer improved traction in challenging weather. The tire also features 3D Micro-Gauge siping, with full depth and variable sipe density to help maintain wet traction and stability.

“Our engineers designed this tire with a compound that offers not only lower rolling resistance for fuel economy, but also a deep tread that can stand up to the demands of the road,” said Gary Schroeder, director of Cooper’s truck and bus tire business, which includes the Roadmaster brand. “For fleets, choosing SmartWay-verified tires is often a good choice to help manage operational costs as they frequently provide fuel savings. At Roadmaster, we are committed to continually developing tires that meet the needs of our customers and help them be more cost-efficient by offering durable tires with long miles to removal, like the new RM852(EM).”

Cooper’s headquarters is in Findlay OH, with manufacturing, sales, distribution, technical and design operations within its family of companies located in more than one dozen countries worldwide.
