In today’s world, the all-terrain light truck tire is the workhorse of any tire company’s product range. Mickey Thompson had a solid lineup of truck tires already but things are going to get a lot more interesting for the brand with the introduction of the Deegan 38 A/T which will put them in the biggest space the truck tire market has to offer.

It will do all the work that truck owners want to accomplish during the week and will be a great tire for them off road when they want to use their trucks for fun on the weekend. The best part? How about a 55,000 mile tread wear warranty?!
The tires will be hitting the market soon and will be offered in 29 sizes on wheels ranging from 15 to 20-inches.
