Cooper Tire’s Roadmaster RM257 drive and RM170+ steer tires are both 19.5-inch tires suited for the final-mile pickup-and-delivery segment and are designed for improved handling and longer wear. The RM257 tire features an aggressive tread and a Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake certification for enhanced grip and performance. The open-shoulder tire has three tread blocks in the center and 3D siping that facilitate better grip in wet weather conditions, while staggered shoulder pockets and chevron grooves help provide added bite and performance in snow and mud. Lateral tie bars help stabilize the tread blocks to enhance even wear and promote better handling, while the compound’s formula helps the tire resist cutting and chipping. The Roadmaster RM257 tire comes in size 225/70R with load range F and G 18/32nds of tread depth, and 245/70R with load range G and H and 19/32nds of tread depth.
The Roadmaster RM170+ tire is designed for added durability and improved handling and wear through enhanced compounding to provide more miles to removal and a softer ride. The steer tire also can serve as an all-position tire in applications where deep-biting traction isn’t required. It has a wide footprint that facilitates longer, more even tread wear, and its V-shaped tread groove helps with traction and stone rejection, while sipes on the outer tread help with wet weather grip. It comes in size 225/70R with load range F and G and 15/32nds of tread depth, and 245/70R with load range G and H and 16/32nds of tread depth. The tire also will be available to fit 265/70R, 285/70R and 10R22.5 sizes.
