“We expect this line to do well with both the serious off-road enthusiast and the casual enthusiast, who is looking for great performance and cosmetic appeal at an affordable position.”
Performance attributes of the Ironman All Country M/T include:
- Groove design that enhances durability by protecting against stone drilling and puncture;
- Shoulder blocks that “easily shovel away mud, silt and sand and provide side-biting traction” on off-road surfaces;
- Staggered buttress design that increases off-road capability and guards against high sidewall cuts and abrasions; and
- Void ratio that effectively promotes self-cleaning capability in muddy conditions.
The Ironman All Country M/T is available in 16 sizes with 15-20 inch rim diameters, including popular enthusiast sizes such as 37x12.5R17 and 35x12.5R18, according to Hercules. In addition, the tire features a studdable tread delivering extra bite in severe weather applications, the company added, and select sizes have a 3-ply sidewall to protect against cutting and tearing in off-road situations.
