FINDLAY, Ohio, April 17, 2013 – Previewed at the 2012 SEMA Show, the Hercules Terra Trac R/S (rugged service), an all-terrain tire built for rough conditions, tough commercial applications and on- and off-road all-season performance, is now available throughout North America. The rugged Terra Trac R/S is available in 10 LT/SUV fitments, with 3-ply tread and/or 3-ply sidewall construction in select sizes.
The heavy-duty construction of the Hercules Terra Trac R/S provides outstanding puncture and impact resistance, making it an ideal tire for work trucks in agricultural, construction and mining industries, as well as trucks dedicated to recreational use where heavy wilderness trekking is involved.

It’s exceptionally sturdy and it’s built to last - even in severe conditions,” said Joshua Simpson, Vice President of Marketing for Hercules Tire. “And dealers who have a history with our Terra Trac offerings will find the Terra Trac R/S an excellent addition to the line-up and a great value to offer their customers.”
The new Terra Trac R/S features:
- A wide footprint that provides for uniform wear and stability even in tough maneuvers
- A tough tread compound that delivers rugged, versatile, all-surface performance
- Key fitments that include 3-ply sidewall construction to protect against sidewall impact
- Low-void shoulder for more contact and an aggressive grip
