Hercules Tires commercial group has unveiled a new addition to the Strong Guard premium truck tire family with the launch of the Hercules Strong Guard HTL.

The new trailer tire will join the existing premium truck tire offerings – the Hercules Strong Guard HRA and the Hercules Strong Guard HRD all-position medium truck tires.

The Strong Guard line features advanced materials, technologies and coverage, according to the Hercules Tires brand. Strong Guard truck tires carry a seven-year limited protection policy including free tire replacement during the first 50% of usable tread life under the workmanship and materials coverage. Additionally, Hercules Strong Guard medium truck tires carry a casing allowance for up to three retreads.

“The Strong Guard series offers a unique blend of enhanced tread compounds, proprietary designs and advanced technologies,” said Marshall Gillespie, manager of commercial and specialty products for Hercules. “We are continuously working to identify opportunities to meet our customers’ needs and the addition of the new Strong Guard HTL is an excellent example of keeping with our brand promise to deliver great performance at an unmatched value.”

The Hercules Strong Guard HTL is constructed with EcoFT, an EPA Smartway Verified technology, and is optimized for regional and long haul trailer positions in highway service in 14 and 16 ply, Hercules said in a press release.

The Strong Guard HTL provides:

  • Uniform wear lateral stability and reduced tread squirm via the wide shoulder five-rib tread design
  • Optimal 14/32-in. tread depth enhanced with stone ejectors that guard the belt package and casing against premature damage caused by stone drilling
  • Stair-step indicators that detect irregular shoulder wear and alert the driver corrective action is required before the tire is damaged
  • A new generation active silica tread compound delivering a balance of long wear and improved rolling resistance for lower costs per mile
