Cooper Tire’s Phil Mosier shows off the company’s newest steer tire

At this year’s TMC Fall Meeting, Phil Mosier, Cooper Tire manager of commercial tire development, walked us through the innovations surrounding the company’s newest steer tire, the Pro Series LHS 2. The new tire features Cooper’s Energy Conservation Optimization technology, which combines tire design, compounding and construction to provide an ultra-low rolling resistance tire that exceeds SmartWay standard requirements by 15%.

Watch below for insight on this tire straight from the source.

The Pro Series Long Haul Steer 2 replaces its predecessor, the Cooper Pro Series Long Haul Steer and features a shoulder decoupling rib on the edge of the tire to minimize irregular wear and damage caused by curbing. The Cooper Pro Series Long Haul Steer 2 tire also provides 18/32nds of tread depth and features a wide footprint. This helps distribute weight more efficiently and promotes long and even wear, as well as enhanced traction.
