Tire Group International LLC (TGI) has expanded its Cosmo brand with the Cosmo Mud Kicker, a tire so focused on its mud performance that TGI sought a trademark to call it "mud rated."
The company says the Mud Kicker is a premium mud tire with a functional design. The shoulder and bead area compliment the off-road performance, and the multi-faceted shoulder claws range in angles from 10 to 90 degrees which provide extra grip surface and quicker self-cleaning. The reinforced bead area provides grip for added traction in deep mud or snow.
The Mud Kicker performs with an aesthetically pleasing look. The tire has two distinct sidewalls to choose from when mounting, one side with raised black lettering for an aggressive look while the other has indented, UHP-inspired lettering that offers a sleek, understated appearance.
The tire is manufactured using Cosmo’s Ultimate Tire Technology (UTT) and Directed Super Silica (DSS) compounding, specifically formulated and enhanced to endure off-road abuse. It is M+S all-season tire with the 3-Peak Mountain Snowflake symbol tire reinforced by the 3 ply Xtreme (3X) sidewall in most sizes. It's the first tire with Cosmo's mud-rated label, and it's engineered with a low noise tread pattern and up to 12-ply under-tread construction.
The tire is entering the market in 12 Q-speed rated SKUs in sizes from 16 inches to 22 inches, including flotation sizes up to 37 inches tall.
“All of our products are over engineered, extreme quality, performance minded and memorable. Always geared to bring value and drive customers to our dealer network.” says Joaquin Gonzalez, president of Cosmo Tires. “Every inch of the Cosmo Mud Kicker has been carefully designed and fabricated to offer a diverse product to both the daily driver and enthusiast market. Cosmo truly is your everyday tire.”
