I figured that they were probably made is China, like most of the trailer tires now days. I liked the fact its atleast a brand that I have heard of and also I was able to get them locally.
A friend of ours had a blowout last year on their way to Yellowstone, I knew that they had gotten 4 new tires on their 5er while on the trip. I helped him move the 5er out of his shed last week and noticed that they had gotten Hercules tires. He said that the dealer in SD where he bought them said the Hercules was one of the best trailer tires he has even seen. I hope thats true!
I checked on the Kumhos, but none of the local shops were able to get them.
Like other things, the Andersen WD hitch being one of them, I will be the "test dummy" for the Hercules tires.
