Hercules will expand passenger tire sizing

April 13, 2006

Hercules Tire & Rubber Co. plans to add four 20-inch passenger tires to its line-up this year.

Two will be Hercules brand products in sizes 245/35R20 and 255/35R20. The other two will be Merit brand products in the aforementioned sizes.

"If we have a customer that needs a 20-inch passenger tire or a 20-inch program, we'll have a product to offer them," says Kevin Breen, vice president of private brands for Hercules.
