Hercules Tire & Rubber Co. is giving Global Tire Expo/SEMA Show attendees a sneak peek at the new Hercules Terra Trac R/S on/off-road light truck tire and Ironman RB-12 all-season touring tire. The tires, both due out the first quarter of 2013, are on display at the Hercules booth (#43081).Hercules Terra Trac R/S

The Terra Trac R/S (for rugged surfaces) replaces the former Terra Trac A/W, featuring a similar tread pattern and updated styling. The tire is aggressive and versatile, according to Hercules, with a low-void shoulder and wide footprint for enhanced stability, even during extreme maneuvers.

Built for all-season performance, the Terra Trac R/S can tackle mud, gravel and sand; offers puncture protection and advanced sidewall construction to protect against sidewall impact; and is designed for rugged commercial applications, the tiremaker added. The M+S rated tire will be introduced in 10 popular sizes.

The Ironman RB-12 will launch in 21 T, H and V speed rated sizes ranging from 13- to 16-inch wheel diameters. The tire features a symmetric, five-rib tread design with a larger footprint for stability and performance; slotted shoulders, moderate siping and wide grooves for enhanced water evacuation; and a variable tread design for driver comfort and reduced road noise, Hercules said.
