Ironman Lineup Expands with 3 New Tires

Posted on October 12, 2015

Hercules Tire & Rubber Co. is adding three offerings to the Ironman I-Series medium truck tire lineup — two all-position tires and one for trailer applications.

“I-Series tires give dealers an entry-level option that meets nearly all the basic needs of their customers, and do so with both quality and accessibility,” says Jedd Emans, vice president of marketing for Hercules.

Ironman I-402 Wide Base Mixed Service A/P

The I-402 is available in four sizes: 315/80R22.5, 385/65R22.5, 425/65R22.5, and 445/65R22.5.

Available initially in four LRJ sizes – 315/80R22.5, 385/65R22.5, 425/65R22.5, and 445/65R22.5, the I-402 is designed specifically for work trucks. It features:

  • durable construction and deep tread are ideal for on- and off-road service;
  • tear-resistant compound guards against abuse from off-road applications; and
  • deep tread NSD yields longer mileage.

A 315/80R22.5 LRM is expected to be available by the end of 2015.
