The new Hercules HDR 325 Radial E3/L3 loader tire is the first available product in the company's new line of small OTR and industrial tires.

Hercules Tire & Rubber Co. has entered the industrial and off-the-road (OTR) tire segments with the introduction of a line of specialty commercial tires. 

The new product line will consist of skid steer, backhoe, compact utility, small bias OTR and small radial OTR tires.

“This year, we are celebrating the 65th year of the Hercules brand – a brand that dealers and consumers have relied on for quality, value, versatility and performance,” says Jedd Emans, vice president of marketing. “We have been expanding and refining our medium truck offerings over the last several years. Moving into the specialty commercial category seemed like a natural evolution for us.”

The first available product in the lineup is the Hercules HDR 325 Radial E3/L3 Loader. Available in 17.5 to 23.5 inch widths, the HDR 325 tire offers:

  • Cut- and chip-resistant compounding to promote optimum performance and wear;
  • An E3/L3 tread design for superior traction and stability, and
  • Dependable performance in both construction and quarry applications.

The lineup will be available at American Tire Distributors (ATD) locations throughout the U.S. and play a key role in ATD’s approach to serving the specialty commercial market.

“In all, 14 different product styles will be introduced,” says Emans. “We are excited to share our exceptional quality and value with a new market, and look forward to communicating updates as additional products reach our dealers.”

The new products will be branded under the Hercules or Hercules by Solideal moniker. Hercules by Solideal products offer a five-year limited protection policy covering defects in workmanship or materials.

Complete product information can be found at www.herculestirecommercial.com.

Hercules is a wholly owned subsidiary of ATD.
