FINDLAY, Ohio (Oct. 9, 2015) — Hercules Tire & Rubber Co. has added two sizes to its H-901 highway all-steel commercial light truck tire line.
The new sizes are LT225/75R16/12 and LT245/75R16/12, according to Hercules, a subsidiary of American Tire Distributors Inc. New production also has begun on the original size, LT235/85R16/14.
The H-901's features include super-high-tensile steel belts, a special tread compound to heighten wet handling and braking and a tread design that Hercules said maximizes biting edges and road contact.
“The H-901 was a huge success from the moment it was introduced. We're excited to offer it not only in additional sizes, but also with added capacity,” said Jedd Emans, vice president of marketing for Hercules.

The product will be featured by Hercules Tire at the 2015 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show in booth No. 43079.
