Ironhead tires

Just purchased a used Phaeton with brand new Ironhead drivers on it, I assume it's a lower cost tire, is this going to affect handling, ride, etc, has anybody had any experience with these tires? Any info is greatly appreciated and thanks in advance

I had never heard of them, but it appears to be a nice looking tire. As for handling, you say you purchased the motorhome, how does it handle and ride? I'm sure it is comparable to any other truck tire in your size. It's a commercial tire and am sure it meets the necessary criteria to be a safe tire with a reasonable service life.

Only drove it a few miles in 30 plus mph winds, so wasn't very good conditions to judge them by, unfortunately it will be in storage here in Minnesota till next spring.

Ironman is a division of Hercules Tire, who had been focused on redefining value in the tire industry for 60 years. Combining cutting edge tire technology and tire industry expertise, with a big dose of old fashioned integrity, Hercules produces tires focused on the customer's needs for value and performance

The Ironhead tire also works very well in mud and has good traction over large rocks. On the road, stability is good, but only on dry surfaces. In the rain, hydroplaning performance is acceptable for the price, but traction is still limited.

Actually, the OP is referring to IronHEAD tires, not IronMAN ...you make reference to both.

Yes, Ironman is made by Hercules.

Ironhead is a Canadian company. I don't believe they are associated with Hercules but I'll check further They make a good product from what I've been able to gather in my research the past few years. However, they are more difficult to find here in the U.S. and actually tend to be pricey.

If I find any further notes in my files on Ironhead, I'll make another post.

Yes, actually, now that I check my notes closer, Ironhead is a subsidiary of Sailun ...a Chinese company and as Roy-c has said, they are made in the Sailun plants either in China or Vietnam. Ironhead's North American headquarters is located in Canada --Brampton Ontario.
