FINDLAY, Ohio (Jan. 22, 2003)—Hercules Tire & Rubber Co. has added a new medium truck tire line and a branded tube program for its dealers.
Findlay-based Hercules said it has supplemented its “S” Series radial medium truck tire line with the addition of the S-209. Described as a shallow tread design, the S-209 is currently available in size 225/70R19.5 in 12 ply and will add size 245/70R19.5 in 14 ply in the spring, the company said.
The tread pattern is designed for long mileage and resistance to irregular wear, Hercules said.
The company also added to its line of branded suppliers Tube & Solid Tire Ltd. of San Antonio, Texas, which markets the Dobermann tube and solid pneumatic tire programs and a variety of radial and bias tubes "at a competitive price," according to Hercules.
