Goodyear has added a new trailer tire, the Regional Haul Trailer (RHT) 2, to the Cooper Work Series line. Available now, the new tire is SmartWay-verified and designed to help fleet owners meet regional haul demands in both tandem and spread axle trailer applications.
The RHT 2 features advanced technology for even treadwear and high scrub resistance to deliver the right mix of efficiency and durability for regional haul trailer tire applications, Goodyear said in a press release. It is available in eight different sizes and is designed to help take on tough and tight turns.
Goodyear reports the features and benefits of the Cooper Work Series RHT 2 include:
- Low rolling resistance and a high scrub tread compound that balances performance, improves wear, helps resist tearing, and promotes fuel efficiency.
- Four heavy-duty, full-width steel belt construction that promotes durability in spread axle applications while also preserving the casing for retread ability.
- Advanced tread features and a shoulder profile that helps minimize tearing and chunking in high scrub applications.
- Wear Square visual indicator that helps determine the remaining tread on the tire and can assist in detecting wheel alignment issues with the vehicle.
“Dependability and durability are top-of-mind for fleet operators when choosing a tire that meets the unique demands of regional trailer tire applications,” said Tom Lippello, senior director of commercial marketing, Goodyear North America. “Fleets can feel confident they can navigate tough roads while delivering efficiency for their business with this new Work Series trailer tire offering.”
