Hercules Tires: Frequently Asked Questions

How good are Hercules tires? 

You would be hard-pressed to find a more high performance tire for a more reasonable price. Over the last 65 years, Hercules has gained a reputation for offering a wide array of products that deliver a unique combination of cutting-edge expertise and old-fashioned integrity. Each tire offers Hercules Tires’ patented asymmetrical tread patterns accompanied by grooves, siping, and biting edges. These technologies work in unison to increase handling and provide smooth, reliable braking. They also offer fuel efficient design elements that lower rolling resistance, which in turn reduces fuel consumption. All of these elements come together to make an ultra-high performance tire that won’t break the bank.

Who makes Hercules tires? Where are Hercules tires made?

According to the company’s website, Hercules tires are manufactured in Findlay, Ohio. The Cooper Tire & Rubber manufactures the Hercules brand and has manufacturing facilities in China; Tupelo, Mississippi; Texarkana, Arkansas; England; and Serbia, according to the NHTSA tire manufacturing database.
