Hercules adds Roadtour line for crossovers

July 25, 2011

Hercules Tire & Rubber Co.  has added the RoadtourXUV to its Roadtour family of all-season tires.

The new RoadtourXUV offers all of the high-performing attributes of the Roadtour655 in sizes to outfit many of the most popular crossovers on the road today. One H-rated size and three T-rated sizes of the RoadtourXUV are available:

* 235/65HR17 (Jeep Grand Cherokee, Ford Edge, Chrysler Pacifica, Honda Odyssey);

* P255/65TR18 (Buick Enclave, Chevy Traverse, GMC Acadia, Saturn Vue);

* 225/65TR17 (Chevy Equinox, GMC Terrain, Dodge/Chrysler minivan models); and

* 235/65TR18 (Ford Explorer, Nissan Murano).

Additional sizes will be available later this year. Hercules backs the H- and T-rated tires with 50,000- and 60,000-mile limited mileage warranties, respectively. All the sizes are backed by Road Hazard Protection, which is part of the company's exclusive 30-day "Trust Our Ride" consumer test drive.

The all-weather tire features low-rolling resistance tread compounding. It also is designed to offer a quiet, comfortable ride.

Hercules operates regional wholesale warehouses in California, Texas, Arizona, Illinois, Ohio, Florida, Ontario, British Columbia and New Brunswick, under the name TDW (Tire Dealers Warehouse) or Hercules Tire Canada. For more information, visit www.herculestire.com.
