Hercules Tire launches all-position highway tyre
Hercules Tire has introduced the Hercules H-801 all-position premium highway tyre. The newest addition to the Hercules H-Series line of medium truck tyres, the next generation H-801 excels in regional steer applications, delivering exceptional treadwear and superior handling capabilities.
“The engineering behind this tyre is very sophisticated, and the wear characteristics and warranty are outstanding. Cosmetically, the tread pattern is very modern, so it is appealing to the eye. It’s an incredible value.” said Minoo Mehta, Hercules Tire’s director of commercial tyre marketing.
The main features of the new Hercules H-801 include:
• Five-rib design with micro sipes and wide shoulder ribs with decoupling grooves resist irregular wear.
• Technologically advanced tread compound contributes to low rolling resistance for optimum fuel efficiency and significant removal mileage.
• Innovative groove technology leads to minimum stone retention, extending casing life.
• Engineered for optimum weight distribution to promote even wear.
The H-801 is part of the EPA SmartWay verified technologies of low rolling resistance tyres and is approved for use on EPA SmartWay certified equipment. The tyre carries a 72 month warranty against manufacturing defects due to workmanship and material, with free replacement up to 50 per cent wear, as well as updated casing and retreading allowances.
Available worldwide, the H-801 offering is made up of four SKUs including:
• 11R22.5/14 144/142M
• 11R22.5/16 146/143M
• 295/75R22.5/14 144/142M
• 295/75R22.5/16 146/143M
“We’ve done a lot to develop our H-Series line-up over the past year. Our customers have been looking forward to having this premium option as part of that expansion, so we’re very pleased to bring the H-801 to market,” said Joshua Simpson, Hercules Tire’s vice president of marketing.
