Hercules Strong Guard HRA 19'5 tires

Its time for new tires and I'm considering Hercules Strong Guard HRA's, size 245 70/19.5. In a quick conversation with a local tire dealer he suggested I consider these as he has sold many and has gotten only good feed back from his commercial customers. He also mentioned they have long warranty. Anybody using these tires?

I run Hercules 601 all position on my converted Volvo rv hauler on the drive axle. They have 140-150000k on them and 4 years old now. They have worn a little but easily have another 100k of tread on them. They are starting to get some weather checking on the sides.

I don't have Hercules, but I have been running Ironman's commercial truck tires for about 2 years now. The ride is every bit as good as my last Michelins and they don't show any wear at all..

I have the older Hercules H series tires, and I am also planning on replacing them due to age with the HRA probably this year as they have 2013 date codes. They were on the to do list for 2020, however since I put less than 200 miles on the coach in 2020, it has been pushed back.

I also have the H-901's on my 32' RexAir, but we just bought a big rig and now I'm wondering if anyone that has a 46K lb rig has used the 315/80R22.5 Hercules Strong Guard tires. I feel like they are a good tire and the capacity is huge over 10K per tire (all the rest are 9K). But...does that mean they might ride hard? Also, to achieve the 10K load capacity you tire pressure is 135 lbs!

Thoughts?

*Update, here's some info on them: https://www.tirereview.com/hercules-...m-truck-tires/

Someone on another thread mentioned I need to find out if my rims are rated for 135 psi, how do I do that? This is a rig that we have purchased but have not picked up yet so I donít have access to the manual.

Since I mentioned earlier in this thread that I was considering HRA's I thought I should post back and say that I ended up buying Sumitomo ST719 tires instead and am very happy with them, the ride much better than the older Hercules tires, so much so in fact I have found myself driving 5-10 mph faster than I thought I was on open highway.
