Cooper Tire Launches New Roadmaster RM332 WB Wide Base Tire

FINDLAY, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cooper Tire & Rubber Company is adding to its Roadmaster line of
commercial tires with the introduction of the new RM332 WB heavy-duty
wide base tire in size 425/65R22.5. The RM332 WB is designed for the
steer axle in mixed service applications.

The Roadmaster RM332 WB has a specially designed rib-type tread pattern
to withstand the rigors of heavy haul driving, on- or off-road, while
also providing long tread life and even wear. The cut and chip resistant
tread compound was specially formulated to meet the diverse performance
requirements of mixed service applications. Additionally, the RM332 WB
is designed to preserve the casing for retreading, including a
protective curb bar on both sidewalls, stone protector ledges in all
four circumferential grooves to help resist stone penetrations, and four
heavy-duty, full-width steel belts to promote durability in heavy haul
fleets. The new RM332 WB is backed by a Roadmaster warranty that offers
two retreads within six years.

“Mixed service applications are highly demanding and this new tire
stands up extremely well to a wide variety of uses,” said Gary
Schroeder, Cooper’s Director of Commercial Vehicle and Global OEM Sales.
“Our Roadmaster tires provide long miles and are backed by a strong
warranty. These advantages, combined with attractive pricing, make
Roadmaster a great tire for customers looking to reduce cost-per-mile,”
he added.
