Mickey Thompson® Releases New Tires

Mickey ThompsonStow, Ohio - New from Mickey Thompson®, are the Baja Claw tire and new sizes in the Baja Belted® line.

Baja ClawBAJA CLAW: Mickey Thompson® is proud to unleash the all new extreme tire, the "Baja Claw". This tire is made of a polyester/fiberglass bias belted construction.

The M/T® Baja Claw features 20" of contact patch from Sidebiter® to Sidebiter®, (20" of surface area on 13.50" tread width-designated tires) and a 6-ply cut resistant sidewall compound for even more stability and strength. These tires also feature circumferential grooves to allow the carcass to flex and conform to rocky terrain during low air pressure, slow moving and rockcrawling. The 6-ply Baja Claw has a "C" load range as well.

The all new M/T® tread pattern and extra long Sidebiter® design also allows you to dig out of any terrain you find yourself in. The "Monster Truck" type tread is a directional, long wearing and self-cleaning design. Even with the aggressive tread design, the Baja Claw has a relatively low noise level on the highway.

Baja BeltedBAJA Belted®: Mickey Thompson® now has available 3 new sizes of Baja Belted® tires. These new sizes will help fill the gap from 33" to 39" sizes currently available.

By giving the Baja Belted® Series of tires a true 36" O.D. tire and even more aggressive Sidebiters for sidewall protection and added traction, the already popular and rugged Baja Belted Series should fit even more popular applications.

These new tires will replace existing 35" sizes and are only available in black sidewall.

36" x 12.50-15LT
