Hercules Is Boosting Production of the Ironman Off-Road Tire
Hercules Tire & Rubber Co. has increased production of its Ironman All Country M/T off-road tire. All sizes of the tire will be available in the first quarter of 2016.
"We released the All Country M/T to provide an off-road tire that combined performance, aesthetic appeal and affordability, and we have ramped up production of all sizes to meet consumer demand,” says Jedd Emans, vice president of marketing for Hercules.
The tire was introduced at the 2014 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show.
Performance attributes of the Ironman All Country M/T include:
* groove design that enhances durability by protecting against stone drilling and puncture;
* shoulder blocks that easily shovel away mud, silt and sand and provide side-biting traction on off-road surfaces;
* staggered buttress design that increases off-road capability and guards against high sidewall cuts and abrasions; and
* void ratio that effectively promotes self-cleaning capability in muddy conditions.
The Ironman All Country M/T is available in 16 sizes with 15-20 inch rim diameters, including popular enthusiast sizes such as 37x12.5R17 and 35x12.5R20.
In addition, a studdable tread delivers extra bite in severe weather applications and select sizes have a 3-ply sidewall to protect against cutting and tearing in off-road situations.
An associate brand of Hercules tires, the Ironman brand offers an appealing balance of quality and economy, according to the company. The Ironman brand of tires includes passenger, light truck and medium truck lines.
“When dealers, media and enthusiasts visit us at SEMA, they will see a diverse portfolio of offerings that provides performance, durability and value across product segments,” Emans continued. “We will be highlighting the Ironman All Country M/T as a key part of our portfolio for 2016.”
The Hercules brand offers passenger, UHP, light truck, medium truck and specialty tires. Hercules is a wholly owned subsidiary of American Tire Distributors Inc. For more information, visit www.herculestire.com.
