FINDLAY, Ohio — Hercules Tire & Rubber Co. added a premium medium truck tire line, the Strong Guard, to its portfolio and is backing the line with a seven-year limited protection policy and a casing allowance for three retreads.
Hercules, an American Tire Distributors Inc. business unit, is launching the line in the U.S. with a pair of all-position radials, the Hercules Strong Guard HRA and Strong Guard HRD. The tires are manufactured in China.
Hercules said the Strong Guard name will be used to denote the brand's premium medium truck tire products and distinguish them from the Hercules- and Iron Man-branded products already in the portfolio.
Jedd Emans, vice president of marketing, called the Strong Guard line "next generation" and an "excellent example of our brand promise to deliver unmatched value."
