Default Hercules 225/75r15 12 Ply

Been running Maxxis 8008 10 ply load range E. Would like a little more tire but cannot go to 16" due to spread axle and fenderettes on my ATC trailer.
Hercules has a 12ply load range F in the 225/75r15.

Has anyone run this tire? It is fairly new so not many reviews.

Hercules Tire has been making products in Findley, Ohio as part of the Cooper Tire and Rubber Company for many years, so they are are (or should be) a reputable brand. They have a large dealer network, so maybe that would be a good place to ask about their warranty/replacement policy.

The Hercules specs show that size as 10 ply, not 12 ply and with the same load rating as Maxxis in that size. I’ve had good luck with Maxxis and since I’m restricted by size think I’ll stick with what’s worked for me. Goodyear? Not so much...

We installed the Hercules 235/85 r16 on our trailer Which was same size as the trailer manufacturer recommendation . Got a good deal, but found that the side walls had more of a buldge and had to beat the crap out of the inner fender to keep from rubbing.

Has anyone ever used a heavy ply truck tire in place of the trailer tires ?
Tire dealer said the speed rating is about 65 mph on trailer tire and were
running right on edge that could make to much heat on tire.

Never heard of a max 65mph on trailer tires. We run about 10 under the speed limit in Colorado and Utah; except for one tire blow out coming down Vail pass (that wasn't the tires fault) just sucky Colorado roads; we havent had any other problems with trailer tires.
I have had more sway with truck/passenger tires when towing.
