Cooper Tire recently introduced the Roadmaster RM258 WD, which features an open shoulder design with four rows of lugs and is Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake certified.

The new tire was designed for regional applications and comes in 11R22.5 and 11R24.5 sizes with load range H.

“The tire features an entirely new tread pattern and curb guards, coupled with enhanced compounding, to ensure excellent performance around town, including when hitting curbs and while on the interstate,” said Gary Schroeder, executive director of Cooper’s global truck and bus tire business.

Deep 26/32nds tread, along with full-depth 3D siping in the lugs, help the tire connect closely with the road for improved traction, according to the company. Tie bars in the shoulders help with uniform wear, and stone ejectors in the tread grooves help keep small rocks from drilling into the casing.

The Roadmaster RM258 WD's four steel belt construction allows for multiple retreads. It comes with a six-year, two-retread warranty.
