Cooper Tire launches TBR lines
At the Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) Annual Meeting and Transportation Technology Exhibition, Cooper Tire introduced truck and bus radial tyres.
The new tyres have been designed and developed for fleets to reduce their overall tyre programme costs and are offered in three series based on application– PRO SeriesTM for long-haul, WORK SeriesTM for regional-haul, pick-up and delivery, and SEVERE SeriesTM for mixed service.
Cooper brand TBR tyre are SmartWay verified for fuel efficiency and are backed by a premium seven-year, two-retread warranty with full replacement value on the first 50 percent of tread life on all PRO Series and WORK Series tyres.
The new Cooper brand truck tyres will be available to commercial tire servicing dealers across the United States and through Cooper Tire’s Fleet Service national account program.
Cooper commercial PRO Series tyres are built with proprietary compounds and tread designs that provide a balance of fuel efficiency and long miles to removal, while WORK Series tyres balance fuel efficiency and tread life with scrub resistant properties. The SEVERE Series is engineered for the most demanding applications, with tyres built to withstand heavy scrub and cut/chip environments.
All Cooper brand TBR tyres have a full width, four steel belt package to provide the casing integrity needed to handle multiple retreads. “We are excited to expand our TBR business with the launch of our Cooper brand TBR tyre lines. Fleets are continually faced with the pressure of lowering their operating costs, and tyres are an area that can have a big impact on meeting those targets. Our North American team of engineers developed the Cooper brand truck tyres with a focus on lowering the total cost of ownership for fleets, making these tires an attractive choice,” said Gary Schroeder, Director of Cooper’s Global Truck and Bus Tire Business. “Cooper will also continue to offer the Roadmaster brand, which has provided quality products primarily to owner-operators and trailer manufacturers for more than a decade.”
