Hercules Rolls Out Ironman RB-12 NWS Tire

ironman_rb12_nws1Hercules Tire has launched its new Ironman RB-12 NWS all-season touring tire that features a white sidewall design.

“Introducing the RB-12 NWS allows us to do a few important things with our white wall offering,” said Jedd Emans, Hercules Tire’s vice president of marketing. “We can offer a distinct, classic look with a cleaner, more modern tread pattern and we can incorporate newer technologies into the design and construction to give it better performance. Finally, we felt strongly about rolling our white wall offering under the RB-12 moniker since our RB-12 products have enjoyed so much success.”

The replacement of the Ironman Touring Pro, the Ironman RB-12 NWS offers enhanced ride comfort and wet traction, with wider, more eye-catching white band, Hercules said.

The Ironman RB-12 NWS features a computer-optimized tread design to reduce road noise and a square tread profile for maximum contact area and handling stability. Additionally, the tire’s lateral shoulder slots help disperse water and heat dissipation, and the tire’s all-season compound is designed to enhance wet traction and durability, the tiremaker said.

The tire is available in nine sizes for 14- and 15-inch wheel diameters in the U.S. through American Tire Distributors.

Team Falken driver Justin Hall secured a first-place finish in the 4500 class racing with the Wildpeak R/T race tires in the 4500 class and Edwin Abd of ABD Motorsports took third in the 4400 class racing with the Wildpeak M/T race tires.

At the start of the event, Hall was unable to participate in the qualifying race due to one of his crank seals pushing out. To resolve the issue, he put silicone on it and let it set overnight so it would be good to go for the main races. Not participating in the qualifying heat put him behind the competition in the first heat. Team Falken said starting from the back was only a minor inconvenience for Hall. Throughout the whole race, the silicone held up well and Justin was able to pass the competition in the first heat, securing a first-place lead.
