Features of Hercules’ Strong Guard HTL trailer tire features uniform wear, enhanced lateral stability and reduced tread squirm via the wide shoulder 5-rib tread design.

The new Hercules Strong Guard HTL trailer tire carries a seven-year limited protection policy including free tire replacement during the first 50% of usable tread life under the workmanship and materials coverage.

Additionally, Hercules Tire & Rubber Co. says the Strong Guard HTL , like all Strong Guard medium truck tires, carries a casing allowance for up to three retreads.

“The Strong Guard series offers a unique blend of enhanced tread compounds, proprietary designs and advanced technologies” says Marshall Gillespie, manager, commercial and specialty products.

The Hercules Strong Guard HTL is constructed with EcoFT, an EPA Smartway-Verified technology, and is optimized for regional and long haul trailer positions in highway service in 14 and 16 ply.

Hercules says the Strong Guard HTL provides:

uniform wear, enhanced lateral stability and reduced tread squirm via the wide shoulder 5-rib tread design;

optimal 14/32nds tread depth enhanced with stone ejectors that guard the belt package and casing from premature damage caused by stone drilling for better retreadability;

unique stair-step indicators that detect irregular shoulder wear and alert the driver corrective action is required before the tire is damaged; and

a new generation active silica tread compound delivering a balance of long wear and improved rolling resistance for lower costs per mile.

The new trailer tire joins the company's the Hercules Strong Guard HRA and the Hercules Strong Guard HRD all-position medium truck tires. For more information on the Strong Guard HTL premium long haul trailer tire, visit the product page on the Hercules website.
