FINDLAY, Ohio (Oct, 21, 2014) — Hercules Tire & Rubber Co. has unveiled its studless Avalanche R GS, the newest addition to its winter tire offerings.
Designed to deliver versatile reliability in severe and unpredictable winter conditions, Hercules said, the Avalanche R G2 provides grip on any winter road surface—wet or dry, ice or snow—due to Hercules' exclusive AWC2 compound.
The Hercules Avalanche R G2 is available in 38 SKUs with rim diameters from 14 -18 inches, the Findlay-based firm said. All SKUs featuring an R speed rating, and SUV sizes are constructed with extra-durable, cut-resistant sidewalls.
“The high quality construction of the Avalanche R G2 is very sophisticated,” said Joshua Simpson, vice president of marketing for Hercules Tire. “Both the design and the compound can accommodate any weather condition, so the tire is especially effective in areas that have highly variable winter weather. Versatility and value are the cornerstones of the Avalanche R G2.”
