I came on here because the net heading on this site said that all Hercules tires are made in China. Who ever posted that is full of it.

Cooper Tire makes them. They are one of only TWO U.S. owned tire companies that exist today. (Firestone was bought out by the Japanese company Bridgestone back in the 1980's.

They also make tires here in the U.S., but are Japanese owned. I know because I built their tire machines at two different U.S. plants.) I have Hercules tires on a Dodge Challenger (V rated, for those who understand what that means.) and they preform very well. Tire dry rot is normal on vehicle that is parked and sits on soil and grass and not used often.

Different soils have different PH (acid) values. (Don't say NO... that's not it. Or that wouldn't cause it, because I had a 4.0 in chemistry and own a small farm where I have to do soil tests before planting to insure I have the proper PH levels for what I am planting.

This explanation would account for your tire rot.

Try parking your truck on concrete blocks. That should help with the problem.

Just because it is a USA company does not mean the tires are made in the USA

Most Cooper's are actually made in Mexico know, their tires actually have alot of problems, one being that the side wall dries out. We have a set of cooper cobras (from the mexico plant) and the side wall split like a ring all the way around 3 of the 4 tires and they where only a year old.

The side walls are real soft and the raised letters on the side walls are barely legible. When we dismounted the tires are hands where all black from the tire.

If your ever worried about a tire just run the dot numbers on the side and they will tell you everything you need to know about the tire. Like where it's made.

I bought Maxxis trailer tires this year that were/are made in Thailand. Thailand is not China.

Cooper Tire does manufacture Hercules tires. But Cooper makes tires all over the world. In fact they own controlling interest in the third largest Chinese tire manufacture,Cooper Chengshan (Shandong) Passenger Tire Company Ltd., and Cooper Chengshan (Shandong) Truck Tire Company Ltd.

in fact the only reason they did not sell the company to Indian interest is because of non disclosure of their Chinese business dealings and manufacturing processes.

UV is the primary cause of dryrot not soil PH. If PH is the source it is rain water would be the cause.

And since you are a Chemistry student with a 4.0 which end if the scale would cause dry rot in tires? Rubber, natural and synthetic, carbon black, fabric, wire, silica ECT?

Do you think they are parking on pH 0 or up around pH 14? And I suppose by your definition touching the soil on one area while parked would rot the entire tire.

Just bought a set of these so I am not a hater....
