Mickey Thompson Tires has engineered and manufactured 4×4 and off-road enthusiast tires for more than half a century, and continues that heritage with the all-new Baja Boss family of radial truck and SUV tires. In addition to the Baja Boss M/T and Baja Boss X, Mickey Thompson has now added the Baja Boss A/T all-terrain tire. This extends the Baja Boss lineup, which now includes a mud-terrain tire, an extreme off-road tire and the new all-terrain tire. No matter what conditions you put in front of your 4×4, there is a Mickey Thompson Baja Boss tire for you. Read on for a closer look at the new Baja Boss A/T and all of the Baja Boss tires.
Baja Boss A/T
The all-new Baja Boss A/T was designed by Mickey Thompson to deliver undisputed on-road handling, performance and tread life. Unlike many other all-terrain tires, The Baja Boss A/T was also designed to take on mud, thanks in part to the asymmetric tread design. Mickey Thompson says it’s the company’s best all-terrain tire to date.
There are 43 sizes available up to 37 inches in diameter for 16-, 17-, 18-, 20-, 22- and 24-inch wheels. If you’re rolling heavy with a 3/4- or 1-ton truck, don’t worry, the hard-working Baja Boss A/T has you covered with load ranges that include D, E and even F for the really big loads. Plus, these high load ranges aren’t limited to only smaller diameters like with other tire brands. The 35- and 37-inch Baja Boss A/T is available with E and F load ratings. Speaking of coveted ratings, almost every size of the Baja Boss A/T comes with the 3PMS (Three Peak Mountain Snowflake) severe snow service rating, making it a great tire choice for those that regularly encounter white winter conditions. To top it off, the Mickey Thompson Baja Boss A/T features a 50,000 mile tread wear warranty.
Baja Boss M/T
If severe muddy conditions are your thing, then maybe the Mickey Thompson Baja Boss M/T is the right tire for you. The Baja Boss M/T is available in 33 different sizes up to 40 inches in diameter for 15-, 16-, 17-, 18-, 20-, 22- and 24-inch wheels. The asymmetric tread pattern reduces noise and improves handling and ride, while the proven PowerPly XD three-ply sidewall construction and extra-large four-pitch Sidebiters fend off punctures and increase off-road traction. A silica-reinforced tread compound offers better wear, cut and chip resistance as well as improved wet handling and braking, while stone ejector ribs prevent gravel from being wedged into the large tread grooves. Several of the larger diameters are available in load range E and F. Jeep-popular flotation sizes are available with a more compliant and lighter weight C and D load range.
Baja Boss X
For all-out extreme off-road only traction the Mickey Thompson Baja Boss X is the tire for you. It’s not a DOT compliant street legal tire, but the sticky competition tread compound will have your 4×4 climbing walls. Puncture-resistant sidewalls are reinforced with Mickey Thompson PowerPly XD, which adds an extra thick denier cord to the angled third sidewall ply. Extra-large four-pitch Sidebiters increase sidewall traction in extreme terrain and stone ejector ribs prevent gravel from being wedged into the tread grooves. The Baja Boss X is available in 37×12.50R17 and 40×13.50R17 flavors.
