Hercules Tires

Has anyone used Hercules tires 275/70R/22.5 16 ply on their motorhome? We are looking for new replacements and have been told these are smooth riding and hold up. Any input would be welcomed. Thanks

I checked on their web site they didn't have a 275/70R/22.5 listed. Are you sure they make that size.

They are made in China. We all know about the quality control
in Chinese factores. They even poisoned their own children to
make an extra buck. Beware...... the safely and lives of your
family are at stake.

Interesting. Links to document such claims would be nifty.

I met a guy that runs a fleet of trucks that loves Hercules tires. Has run them for many years. Got tired of zipper blow outs.
Has them on his MH.

Doesnt Hercules need to meet ISO9000 (etc) requirements as a US company?

I'm thinking about Hercules and also BFG

Just got a whole set for our 45 footer. Local dealer puts them on most of his RVs with no problems. my two cents

safe travels
