Hercules Tire to highlight new products at SEMA

Hercules’ new UHP tyre the Raptis R-T5

Hercules Tire will showcase its latest tyres at SEMA 2015 in Las Vegas. Located in Booth #43079, the company will feature new consumer lines, such as the ultra-high performance Hercules Raptis R-T5, new medium truck tyre offerings, and new sizes in popular existing Hercules products.

“SEMA 2015 provides us a fantastic opportunity to show dealers, consumers and the media what Hercules has been up to in the last year – and I know our latest offerings will generate a lot of interest,” said Jedd Emans, vice president of marketing for Hercules Tire. “We are excited to show off the Raptis R-T5, which delivers the performance consumers expect from a Tier 1 or Tier 2 product, but with the value and profit potential dealers have come to expect from Hercules Tires.”

A premium all-season UHP tyre, the Raptis R-T5 is designed and constructed with advanced materials and technology, with superior control, enhanced wear-resistance and a AA UTQG traction grading – the highest possible. The company will also preview its Hercules Roadtour 855 SPE all-season touring tyre, which will complete the company’s premium family of offerings when it is launched in early 2016.

In addition to featuring the Raptis R-T5 and the Roadtour 855 SPE, Hercules will showcase:

  • Three new Hercules H-series medium truck tyres, including the brand’s first medium truck drive tyre designed specifically for winter use and an Ultra-Premium Long Haul Decoupling Groove Steer tyre;
  • The Ironman GR906 all-season touring tyre, an entry-level offering with tread elements that minimise noise and increase stability and high-density siping designed to enhance wet and snow traction;
  • Three new Ironman I-Series medium truck tyre patterns – two new all-position tyres (I-402 wide base mixed service A/P and I-502 premium deep tread A/P), and one for trailer applications (I-480 trailer rib);
  • And three new sizes of the popular Hercules H-901 highway all steel commercial LT/ST offering. The H-901 is now available in LT225/75R16/12, LT245/75R16/12 and ST225/90R16/14 (metric equivalent to the 7.50R16).

“Hercules has a truly diverse portfolio of products, which includes high performance and incredible value,” said Emans. “At the SEMA show, Hercules will have something compelling to share with dealers, media and enthusiasts  alike, and we can’t wait to participate in the event.”
