I have them on my EF...I Love them!! there great. Sure they don't grip like eagle F1's. But there 1/3rd the price(or less). And I was actually suprised at there Wet weather capability. There quite grippy in the rain. Mind you i am running a stock CX but I took soem pretty fast corner's in the rain and they have yet to give out on me. I definetly reccomend them. My swap shoudl be done after this weekend. When I got some power I can better judge there capabilities. Mine are 195-50-15's. Ive had them on for about a month. So far they've been great and Im quite satisfied.

i've had hercules on my eg for about 5000 miles now and they still look brand new. I am quite impressed with the performance of these tires. Not to mention that i payed less than $500 for them mounted, balanced and that includes the disposal fee.

Hercules G5000Z are summer tires.

When it comes to things like tires and brakes I prefer to spend the extra money to get high quality parts because really its a small investment to protect my car and my safety. Hercules are not a performance tire, they may have the tread similar to one but the rubber and compound is way different, they are designed to be cheap to buy and to last for higher miles.

I took the recommendation of someone from a diff board to try Cooper Zeon 2XS tires... so far so good... if you wanna find out more about them... Cooper owns MT slicks and Avon tyres... they made the Zeon 2XS based on Avon tyres... check tirerack.com for reviews on Avon tyres...

For moderate power level's there great because you can drive on them hard and not worry about them. But I have no clue how much they cost. Mine were free

I have the Hercules G5000Z on 17's... They are pretty good for the price.. excellent performance, good traction, good tread wear..... this is my third season with them now. I find them to be a bit loud at high speeds though. Oh by the way.. is that your sister? haha

Hi guys thought I;'d jump in. Hurcules is actually owned by cooper if i'm not mistaken. I've owned the g5000Z and would do it again in a flash. They seem very well put together. Also 205-40-16's are about 95$ a piece!! I used them for solo and they grip very well, even at full tread depth! There treadware rating seems to be acceptible for a Z rated tire. I say go getem.

I'm afraid not. Cooper just purchased the retread rubber operations from Hercules in July, 2001.

i have "Spitfire" tires, made by Cooper Tire. They are 195-50-15 All Seasons and cost $95 each. Ive had them almost a year and no problems and very durable....and they proved themselves this yr when i got caught in a snow storm and hit every red light on a hill on bathurst (i think it was that street..not sure anymore..)

I'll recommend them ..if a cheap tire is what you're after
