Cooper Tire has announced a new mixed service wide base all-position (WBA) tire as part of its Severe Series lineup for mixers and dump trucks.
The Cooper Severe Series WBA features a five-rib design with a zigzag rib in the center. The tire is designed to provide traction and cornering in slippery construction site conditions. Special cut, chip and chunk resistant compounds, plus Cooper’s Scrub Guard technology, help the tire withstand scrubbing, curbs and other obstacles typically encountered during operations to ensure longer tire life while maintaining casing integrity, the company says.
Tie bars stabilize the center rib to enhance driving performance, and a five-inch steel band reinforcement in the lower sidewall provides reinforcement and casing durability, Cooper says.
The tire is available in 385/65R22.5 and 425/65R22.5 sizes, in load range L.
