The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company recently introduced a new addition to the Cooper Work Series line, the Work Series Regional Haul Trailer (RHT) 2.

Available now, the new trailer tire is SmartWay verified and designed to help fleet owners meet regional- haul demands in both tandem and spread axle trailer applications, the company said. The new Cooper Work Series RHT 2 provides durability that helps deliver performance and efficiency, regardless of the type of route required on the job.

“Dependability and durability are top of mind for fleet operators when choosing a tire that meets the unique demands of regional trailer tire applications,” Tom Lippello, senior director of commercial marketing for Goodyear North America, said in a news release. “Fleets can feel confident they can navigate tough roads while delivering efficiency for their business with this new Work Series trailer tire offering.”

The Cooper Work Series RHT 2 features advanced technology for even treadwear and high scrub resistance to deliver the right mix of efficiency and durability for regional-haul trailer tire applications, Goodyear maintained.

Cooper Work Series RHT 2: Available in eight sizes, the new tire is built for regional-haul spread axle and tandem trailers and designed to help take on tough and tight turns. Features and benefits of the RHT 2 include:

Low rolling resistance and high scrub tread compound that balances performance, improves wear, helps resist tearing and promotes fuel efficiency

Four heavy-duty, full-width steel belt construction that promotes durability in spread axle applications while also preserving the casing for retreadability

 Advanced tread features and a shoulder profile that helps minimize tearing and chunking in high scrub applications

Wear square visual indicator that helps determine the remaining tread on the tire and can assist in detecting wheel alignment issues with the vehicle.
