Hercules Rolls Out New Premium Light Truck Tires

Hercules Tire & Rubber Co. has added two new light truck tires to the Terra Trac family – the Terra Trac M/T mud terrain and the Terra Trac T/G Max commercial traction tire.HERCULES_MT

“These are two more tires that exemplify Hercules’ promise to deliver extraordinary value. The Terra Trac M/T and Terra Trac T/G Max are high-quality, great-looking products with unbeatable warranties that offer our dealers great profit potential and differentiation,” said Jedd Emans, Hercules’ vice president of marketing.

Although built for different rugged applications, both tires feature variable full-depth siping, stone release features and tread compound formulations optimized for a myriad of on-and off-road applications, Hercules said.

The Terra Trac M/T is a mud terrain tire features a Hi/Lo tread design that incorporates a higher void-to-rubber ratio on the outside of the tire for aggressive off-road traction, with a tighter center rib section for better on-road stability and reduced road noise, the tiremaker said. Additionally stud pins in the tread enhance winter traction and large shoulder scallops provide off-road traction and rough terrain grip.

“I would call the Terra Trac M/T a ‘modern mud tire’ because it’s designed for high performance both on and off the road. Most drivers with mud tires spend the majority of their time on paved roads, not trails. This tire is designed for the way consumers really drive,” said Emans.

The tire is available in 21 sizes ranging 15- to 20-inch wheel diameters and features a reversible camouflage sidewall design.

The Hercules Terra Trac T/G Max commercial tire is designed to work in challenging and hazardous work environments such as gravel-strewn construction sites and muddy farm fields, Emans notes. The tire features a silica-infused cut and chip resistant compound that resists damage, while providing better wear and wet traction, and has a deep 18.5/32nds tread depth, Hercules adds.

Additionally, the tire has a square profile design to optimize surface contact, an aggressive upper shoulder to help resist abrasion and biting edges for off-road traction.

The Terra Trac T/G Max is available in 15 LT and flotation sizes ranging 15- to 18- inch wheel diameters.

Both tires also come with Hercules’ on-road Road Hazard protection for up to two years or 50% treadwear, and Hercules’ exclusive 30-day Trust Our Ride test drive.
