Dec. 15, 2004

Hercules Tire & Rubber Co. will roll out a new light truck tire and a new passenger tire in early 2005.

The Hercules Terra Trac AT light truck tire will be available next month in 29 sizes. Hercules plans to add 19- and 20-inch sizes to the Terra Trac eventually, according to Steve Buck, Hercules´ general manager and vice president of the company´s Tire Division.

Hercules´ latest broad-line passenger tire, the MR4, will be available this spring. The 60-, 65- and 70-series tire targets both passenger and SUV applications. "Right now it runs through 16 inches."

The Findlay, Ohio-based company also plans to add V- and H-rated sizes to its Ultra Touring TR line next year.
