Cooper’s Severe Series WBA is a mixed-service wide-base all-position tire suited for harsh operating conditions encountered by mixers and dump trucks. The tire is available in 385/65R22.5 and 425/65R22.5 sizes, both load range L, and features a five-rib design with 23/32nds of tread and a zigzag rib in the center engineered for added traction and cornering in slippery construction sites. Cut-, chip- and chunk-resistant compounds combined with the company’s Scrub Guard technology help the tire withstand scrubbing and curbing and maintaining casing integrity. Notched circumferential ribs and stone ejector ledges help reduce and prevent the penetration of sharp rocks and stones, and grooved walls contain a dual shelf to aid in tread stability and minimize squirm when cornering. Tie bars help stabilize the center rib to enhance driving performance, and a five-inch steel band reinforcement in the lower sidewall and a four-belt casing design contribute to reinforcement, casing durability and retreadability.
