Popular vehicles accommodated by the new sizes include Acura TL and TSX, Chevy Malibu, Chrysler 200, Ford Focus and Fusion, Kia Optima, Lincoln MKZ, Volvo S60 and more.

The Hercules Raptis WR1 features a limited 35,000 mile/55,000 km mileage warranty that includes Hercules’ industry-leading road hazard protection. The Raptis WR1 also contains non-aromatic oil (NAO), which reduced the carbon footprint, working toward a cleaner environment.

The new Raptis WR1 sizes will be available from Hercules Tires dealers and distributors by the end of 2013.
