Hercules Tires announced it has expanded its premium Strong Guard medium truck tire line with its new Strong Guard H-MD and H-MX tires for the mixed-service market. Both tires are built for on and off-road applications, including construction, logging and mining.
The Strong Guard H-MX is built for extreme traction and durability in the most severe service applications. It features a seven (7) percent wider tread, ten (10) percent wider belt and a cut and chip resistant tread compound designed to specifically withstand rough terrain. The Strong Guard H-MD is available for operators that require versatility and durability on unpaved job sites while providing improved handling and even wear on-road. At the conclusion of the launch period, the two new Strong Guard tires will be available in 11R22.5 and 11R24.5 sizes while the H-MD will offer an additional fitment of 12R22.5.
“These two new premium tires will help fleet and other commercial truck owners lower their total cost of ownership,” said Marshall Gillespie, Hercules Tires Manager of Commercial and Specialty Proprietary Brands. “Each tire features our proprietary tread patterns and compounds to withstand the most severe conditions; improved protection and casing policies to provide longer tread life and innovative technologies and wider treads. Combined, these new features will provide fleets and other commercial truck owners with a premium product, while helping them save money.”
The H-MD and H-MX are the latest additions to the Strong Guard line, replacing the Hercules H-302 and H-307. The new premium tires are launching just in time for fleet owners’ busiest time of the year. To help its dealers meet demand, Hercules is offering a $150 statement credit for the first eight tires purchased through Oct. 31.
“The commercial tire market is always changing, so products launched under the Hercules Strong Guard name will always provide new technology and performance capabilities,” Gillespie said. “These two new products will enable us to stay at the forefront of our industry.”
