Additional size added to Cooper Roadmaster RM230 HH tire

Cooper has added a new size to its Roadmaster RM230 HH tire line to meet the demands of severe-duty applications, such as logging and mining. The Roadmaster RM230 HH tire is designed to withstand stone penetration, with 18-ply rating (load range J) construction, tread depth of 22/32nds, cut- and chip-resistant compounding, and an off-road design with lugs and a stone protector ledge. The new size available is 275/70 R22.5.

According to Gary Schroeder, Cooper’s director of commercial vehicle and OEM sales, the new size offering was inspired by the tire maker’s visits to Canadian loggers, who expressed a need for a robust trailer tire.

“We’ve seen first-hand in the field that when it comes to severe duty, loggers and miners put their trailer tires to the test, and as a result, tire life expectancy can be shortened. Our new RM230 HH has a very deep tread at 22/32nds, while most highway trailer tires are in the range of 12/32nds to 16/32nds. With the deeper tread, we can help ward-off tire damage from off-road challenges, such as shot rock and tree roots. Plus, our special compounding helps in combatting scrubbing once the tire is running on pavement.”
