Mickey Thompson to launch new off-road only Baja Boss X competition tire line.
STOW, OHIO – Nov. 4, 2019 – Mickey Thompson’s new Baja Boss X extreme competition tires are designed to tackle the toughest terrains. Tested at King of the Hammers and other off-road race and rock crawl events, this tire provides incredible grip and endurance to conquer all obstacles.
Available in early 2020, the Baja Boss X is a competition version of the Baja Boss tire with a race compound for off-road use only. It will initially be available in two sizes – 37x12.50R17LT and 40x13.50R17LT.
“We’re thrilled to present our new Baja Boss X ‘Sticky Mickey’ tires for extreme off-road and rock crawling, said Ken Warner, Vice President of Marketing, Mickey Thompson Tires and Wheels. “This new tire has a heavy-duty sidewall, extra-large Sidebiters and an asymmetrical tread that provides unparalleled off-road traction.”
The Baja Boss utilizes PowerPly XD™ 3-ply construction to provide greater puncture resistance, quicker steering response and greater stability. The next generation four-pitch Sidebiters® are 50% larger than any previous Mickey Thompson radial tire, providing additional grip from all angles.
Additional features include deep and wide voids to enhance off-road traction and forward bite, as well as angled shoulder scallops for ultimate traction and self-cleaning ability.
