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.
