Roadmaster Tires Showcase RM234 And RM254 Regional Tires At The Mid-America Trucking Show

Roadmaster is showcasing the RM234, a premium regional all-position tire, and the RM254, a premium regional pick-up and delivery drive tire, at this week's Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) in Louisville, Ky. MATS is the largest heavy-duty trucking event in the world.

First introduced at MATS 2013, the Roadmaster RM234 and RM254 premium regional tires have quickly become customer favorites. Both can be viewed by visiting the Roadmaster exhibit, located at booth 64196.

The RM234 is a premium regional all-position tire designed for high scrub applications where excellent tread wear and cut and chip resistance is important. It features a 22/32 tread, a high scrub tread compound, stone ejectors, four full-width steel belts and a sidewall curb guard.

The RM254 is a premium regional open shoulder drive tire built for pick-up and delivery applications. Whether on a beverage truck or regional delivery truck, this tire provides the traction and treadwear required for frequent stopping and accelerating. The premium tread compound and high-tensile strength four-belt package combine to provide the retreadability, treadwear and traction to meet customer’s expectations.

The RM234 and RM254 are currently available at dealers across the country.

Roadmaster also has four tire lines that are verified as SmartWay low-rolling-resistance tires and offers SmartWay products for all wheel positions. The SmartWay verified lines include the RM180 and RM185 steer tires, the RM871 trailer tire and the RM851 drive tire.
