Hercules Tire & Rubber Co. is displaying several newer tires at its Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show booth, including the Raptis WR1, an ultra-high performance tire available in 18 popular sizes.
The Raptis WR1 "addresses the UHP market for our customers," says Hercules Vice President of Marketing Joshua Simpson. It's offered through Hercules brand distributors, as well as the company's TDW (Tire Dealers' Warehouse) locations and Hercules' International and Canadian divisions.
Other tires on display at Hercules' booth include:

The All-Trac A/T comes in 20 sizes and promotes "high mileage and even wear, an added plus in today's economy," says Simpson.
