Cooper Tire has announced the availability of a new mixed service wide base all-position (WBA) tire as part of its Cooper® SEVERE Series™ lineup. The Cooper SEVERE Series WBA provides long miles to removal while handling the harsh operating conditions found in construction truck applications – especially mixers and dump trucks. The tire is available in 385/65R22.5 and 425/65R22.5 sizes, in load range l.
According to Gary Schroeder, Executive Director of Cooper’s Global Truck and Bus Tire Business, Cooper continues to broaden its signature line of truck and bus radial (TBR) tires. “Our Cooper SEVERE Series tire line, which now also includes the WBA, provides exceptional performance while giving our customers a low cost of ownership proposition,” he said. “The WBA is a premium tire engineered to give those running mixers and dump trucks a tire with the power to outperform others at its price point.”
The Cooper SEVERE Series WBA features a five-rib design with 23/32nds of tread and a unique zigzag rib in the center. While unique in looks, the tire is designed to provide exceptional 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. “Since many of our customers run 80 to 90 percent on-road, with the other duty cycles off-road in quarries and on gravel roads, the tire must give optimal performance in both driving conditions,” said Schroeder. “And it does. We balance tire life – long miles to removal – with a durable tire that holds up against the toughest of conditions.”
Featuring notched circumferential ribs, the tire has stone ejector ledges to help reduce and prevent the penetration of sharp rocks and stones. In addition, grooved walls contain a dual “shelf” to aid in tread stability – minimizing squirm when cornering – while providing additional stone protection. 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.
The tire features a strong four-belt casing design to help ensure multiple retreads, while Cooper’s industry-leading seven-year, two-retread warranty provides added confidence to buyers.
