Mickey Thompson's new tires for diesel trucks!

Mickey Thompson has released a new "E" rated diesel truck tire that is quieter than previous models!


This NEW tire  is from their Dick Cepek line of tires called Fun Country.

I am anxious to try this tire on my own truck since I have run the Radial F.C II tires and was quite impressed with how quiet they were with such an aggressive tread.

The "Fun Country" tires come in "E" rated sizes that fit wheels from 16-20" in many different offsets and widths. I was glad to see so many different options on sizes since there are so many different options for wheels.


Some newer improvements to the "Fun Country" tires are the notched shoulder edges that helps to provide additional off-road traction along with 360º scalloped ribs for additional off-road traction that also gives a rugged appearance.

A little different pattern on the tires that has a computer optimized pitch sequence which creates low pattern noise and even wear for a quiet ride on hard surfaces.

There is still a fairly large surface that provides positive grip and even wear for on/off road performance.

Mickey Thompson has signed with DIESEL Motorsports as the official tire and we have chosen to endorse these tires because so many of our diesel competitors and fans use their product. I have MT ATZs on my truck now and they grip the road really well with very little noise!

The "Fun Country" tires are brand new so give them a couple of months to get them in the distribution channels but if you were wanting new tires for the season you may want to wait and try these tires out!
