FINDLAY, Ohio (June 25, 2012)—Semi-trailer maker Wabash National Corp. has approved Cooper Tire & Rubber Co.'s Roadmaster RM871 tires for original equipment use.
Wabash said the Roadmaster will be used on all its dry freight and refrigerated van models as well as on its Transcraft- and Benson-brand platform trailers.
Roadmaster tires previously were specified by some of Wabash National's largest customers, according to Bill Hoban, national truck tire sales manager for the Roadmaster brand.
Cooper converted its medium truck tire line to the Roadmaster name several years ago. Roadmaster tires are produced primarily at the firm's plant in Rongcheng City, China
