Mickey Thompson adds three new high flotation sizes to Deegan 38 line

September 18th, 2017

Stow, Ohio – Sept. 18, 2017– The popular Deegan 38 truck tire from Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels is available in three new high flotation sizes for improved ride under normal daily driving conditions with more sidewall flex under low inflation off-roading.

New sizes of the high flotation tires include 35X12.50R15LT, available in load range C, making them a better fit than the equivalent D rated metric versions, especially for light-duty applications such as Jeeps, half-ton trucks and SUVs. By adding the taller 35-inch sizes, the Deegan 38 lineup now includes tires for all of today’s popular off-roading applications.

The other new sizes are 35X12.50R17LT and 35X12.50R18LT, available in load range D. Higher load-carrying metric counterparts are also available for heavier-duty applications requiring greater load-carrying capability.

“High flotation tires are in high demand among off-road enthusiasts,” said Ken Warner, Vice President of Marketing for Mickey Thompson. “For lighter applications, these sizes are able to maintain original equipment load-carrying capabilities while still providing strength and flexibility for excellent performance both on and off-road.”
