Mickey Thompson Debuts its First Dedicated Off-Road Tire
Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels has launched a new, off-road use only tire designed to traverse even the most extreme terrain, according to the company.
The Baja Pro X tire is on track to be the most aggressive off-road tire ever released by Mickey Thompson. The tire’s off-road use only designation is due in part to new design elements such as the sticky compound and innovative Treadbiter cleats, which make it too aggressive for street use, according to the company.
The tire is currently only available in size 43×14.50-17LT, with additional sizes planned in the future.
“We designed the Baja Pro X for extreme outdoor use: rock bouncing, mud bogging, deep mud, rock, snow, sand, dirt and gravel,” said Jason Moulton, senior product development manager for Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels. “After the Baja Pro X was named a runner up in the tire category of the 2018 SEMA New Product showcase and won a SEMA Global Media Award, we are more excited than ever to get the Baja Pro X out to our customers to test on the trail or mud bogs.”
