Hercules adds touring tire to Ironman line
Hercules Tire & Rubber Co. has added the Ironman Tour CRi to the Ironman family of tires. The move continues the company's push to broaden the Ironman line.
The Tour CRi is an all-season, mid-range touring tire. It features the following:
* a nylon overwrap to provide greater stability;
* a silica-based tread compound that delivers long tread life and "improved" wet grip;
* heavy siping that enables handling performance in wet and dry conditions.
The Ironman Tour CRi is offered in 21 14- to 16-inch sizes ranging from 70 to 55 series. The sizes are T- and H-rated.
Available in black and white sidewalls, the Tour CRi has a stylish touring appearance. Its symmetrical tread pattern creates a quiet, comfortable ride and allows for front-to-back and cross rotation.
“The Tour CRi rounds out the Ironman product offering, which now offers a complete range of tires, from passenger touring and performance to light truck, SUV and specialty lines,” says Joshua Simpson, vice president of marketing. “Ironman combined with Hercules gives our customers a great one-two punch.”
The Ironman Tour CRi is available through the Hercules brand distribution network in the United States and Canada, as well as internationally. Additional information can be found at www.herculestire.com.
