Mickey Thompson Updates Its Mud-Terrain Tire
Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels has enhanced its mud-terrain tire, the Baja Legend MTZ.
The enhancements include an optimized tread design and geometry that provide both on- and-off road benefits.
"This authentic mud-terrain tire is built for enthusiasts who demand legendary off-road traction with a premium on-road experience," says Heather Tausch, director of product management for Mickey Thompson.
The new line features:
- Variable-length and depth Sidebiters that provide a bold look, as well as off-road traction and protection;
- PowerPly three-ply sidewall construction for puncture resistance, plus, quick reaction to steering inputs and stability; and
- a silica-reinforced T-4 tread compound for long tread life, cut and chip resistance, wet handling and braking performance.
The Baja Legend MTZ will initially be offered in 35 sizes — and nearly half will be available with optional raised white sidewall lettering.
