LOUISVILLE -- Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. showcased its new Roadmaster premium regional all-position commercial tire at last week’s Mid-America Trucking Show. It’s set to be available in May.

The new RM234 is a regional haul, all-position tire for high scrub situations in which durability, tread wear and extended mileage are important. It features deep tread grooves and a premium tread compound for "excellent wear and cut and chip resistance," according to Cooper.

"The new RM234 is a complement to our current Roadmaster line, and offers truckers a premium option to the RM185,” says Bill Hoban, Roadmaster national truck tire sales manager.
