FINDLAY, Ohio—Hercules Tire & Rubber Co. is adding the Terra Trac Cross-V, a premium tire for SUVs, light trucks and crossover vehicles, to its Terra Trac line.
The new tire is offered in 24 SUV/CUV sizes and eight light truck sizes with rim diameters ranging from 16 to 20 inches, Hercules said. SUV/CUV sizes are backed by a 70,000-mile/112,000-kilometer limited warranty, while light truck sizes feature a 65,000-mile/105,000-kilometer warranty.
The Terra Trac Cross-V provides users with a “sought-after mix of wear-resistance, all-weather traction and low-rolling resistance,” the Findlay-based private brander added.
“The CUV, SUV and light truck markets are on the rise again. Unfortunately, many dealers have a gap in their product screen when it comes to offering CUV or SUV drivers a tire that delivers performance, longevity and value. The Terra Trac Cross-V finally fills that gap,” said Joshua Simpson, vice president of marketing for Hercules.
This is the seventh iteration of the Terra Trac line for SUVs and CUVs.
Hercules said features of the tire include high-grade compound materials and a tread design that work in tandem to deliver wear resistance and durability; all-weather, all-road traction as a result of micro-wave siping, an open shoulder design and unique water guard; and an advanced silica compound.
All sizes feature road hazard protection and are included in Hercules' exclusive 30-day “Trust Our Ride” test drive program.
Hercules did not identify the line's manufacturer or country of origin.
