STOW, Ohio (Jan. 12, 2016) — Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels expanded its Deegan 38 mud-terrain tire line with four new sizes: LT265/75R16, LT285/75R16, LT265/70R17 and LT285/70R17.
The tire line, developed with Brian Deegan, now includes 17 sizes.
“We've expanded this exceptional tire line to include the most popular 16- and 17-inch fitments for today's light truck, Jeep and SUV enthusiasts,” said Ken Warner, vice president of marketing for Mickey Thompson. “This tire delivers a great combination of aggressive style and performance with long tread life and responsive handling on uneven terrain.”
According to Mickey Thompson, the tire's tread can handle water, mud and rocky terrains. The center tread elements deliver better grip, even wear and a quieter ride, while stone ejector ribs resist dirt and mud.
Additionally, Mickey Thompson's SideBiters and shoulder scallops are designed to guide mud and loose soil away from the tread. The enhanced sidewall features high tensile body-ply cord for increased sidewall integrity and reduced rolling resistance.
