“The Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels booth #43035 will be the place to be at the 2019 SEMA Show, and we’re inviting media members to stop by and see what all the excitement is about,” said Ken Warner, VP of Marketing, Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels. “We’ll be introducing the new Baja Pro XS tire, showcasing our expanded Baja Boss lineup, and displaying some of the coolest project vehicles at the show.”
The new Baja Pro XS is a street-legal, extreme mud tire available in sizes from 35-inch to a monster 58-inch application, making it one of the most aggressive truck tires in the company’s lineup. It will be joined by 15 new sizes of the Baja Boss, Mickey Thompson’s ultra-premium Extreme Mud Terrain radial tire featuring an asymmetric tread pattern and PowerPly XD™ 3-ply sidewall construction.
The tires will be displayed next to impressive project vehicles that highlight the good looks and unmatched performance of the Mickey Thompson product line.
