FINDLAY, Ohio (Feb. 21, 2014) — Hercules Tire & Rubber Co. has upgraded the value-added enhancements to its Hercules medium radial truck tire warranty.

The program covers all Hercules brand medium truck tire lines, including its popular H-Series offering.

Hercules said the enhanced warranty took effect on Jan. 1, with the extended replacement period applicable to tires purchased Jan. 1, 2014 or later.

Enhancements include:

c The extended free tire replacement period is extended to 50 percent original tread life if the tire becomes unserviceable due to workmanship or material defects.

c All Hercules brand medium truck tires carry a minimum limited warranty of 60 months coverage against defects in workmanship or material. SmartWay verified tires, signified by the “EcoFT” logo, are now warranted for 72 months.

c Retreading and casing allowances for the first retread have been significantly improved, some by as much as 50 percent.

“Our medium truck offering, especially H-series, has been extremely well-received and has gained tremendous momentum over the past few years,” said Joshua Simpson, Hercules’ vice president of marketing.

 “It feels great to be able to thank our customers by giving them this great warranty coverage.”
