Wabash National Corp., manufacturer of semi trailers in North America, is now making Cooper Roadmaster RM871 tires available as an original equipment option on all of its dry freight and refrigerated van models as well as on its Transcraft and Benson brand platform trailers.

According to Sean Kenney, director of sales for Wabash National, "Cooper Roadmaster tires offer another beneficial tire option for our customers. Its design and compounding provide low rolling resistance and improved fuel efficiency. As well, the tire's special groove edge provides enhanced traction in wet road conditions."

"Cooper Roadmaster tires were previously specified by some of Wabash National's largest customers," says Roadmaster National Truck Tire sales manager Bill Hoban. "Now, all of Wabash National's customers have the option to pick SmartWay-verified Roadmaster RM871 tires when specifying the components they want on their new semi trailers. We are pleased to be selected by Wabash National and look forward to meeting the needs of their customers."
