Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. and its subsidiary Oliver Rubber Co. introduced a specialty application tread – the APWs. This new tread features a technologically advanced tread compound called Tri-Cor, the company said.

The APWs features a large aggressive tread pattern with three circumferential self-cleaning grooves that provides excellent mileage. The APWs retread is designed for the steer axle and is suitable for drive and trailer positions, the company said. Its tread is designed for tough applications that encounter cornering and scrubbing. It compliments a lineup of special service application treads.

The APWs is available in sizes ranging from 220mm (9) to 270mm (14). Designed for 70 percent on-road and 30 percent off-road applications, the APWs has an aggressive design and deep tread depth to help provide traction and longer tread wear, the company said. The wide squared-off solid shoulders are hallmarks of the tread, which also includes stone ejection capabilities to further protect the casing. The APWs is designed to provide outstanding maneuverability and first-class handling stability to meet the needs that fleet operators want – quality at an affordable price, the company said. 

The APWs offers Oliver’s exclusive tread concept – VDiplus. This feature reduces foreign material retention and decreases the usual stone drilling conditions and casing penetration issues that typically occur in specialty applications, the company said. The grooves have a depth of 26/32 (21 mm), leaving room for plenty of mileage and have been designed to expel embedded objects.
