Hercules Unveils Avalanche RT Studdable Winter Tire

The new Avalanche RT from Hercules Tire and Rubber Co. is a studdable winter tire for passenger and crossover utility vehicles (CUVs).

The company says its Snow Grip Technology provides improved cold-weather capabilities. Features include a dynamic cold weather compound for maneuverability and responsive handling, a multi-pitched directional tread pattern with 60% more sipes than the predecessor tire, saw-tooth grooves that hold snow in the tread to provide critical snow-on-snow traction, and small ribs in the buttress that bite into deep snow and slush.

The Avalanche RT has earned the 3-Peak Mountain Snowflake marking and will be available in 41 sizes, 14-18 inch, covering most of the popular passenger and CUV fitments.
