Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels Deegan 38 light truck tire offers a innovative light truck tire for the off-road market. Developed with five-time Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) champion and 16-time X Games medalist Brian Deegan, the Deegan 38 is the ultimate mud-terrain tire delivering aggressive performance, respectable street manners and impressive style.
The tread consists of Mickey Thompson’s proven compound and a number of unique design elements: The beveled tread edge enhances stone ejection and lug integrity; special wide lateral and offset grooves channel water away and handle mud and rocky terrain; and large center tread elements deliver better grip, even wear and a quieter ride; stone ejector ribs eject stones, dirt and mud.
Along the shoulder, Mickey Thompson’s signature SideBiters® and unique shoulder scallops guide mud and loose soil away from the tread in both forward and reverse. The enhanced sidewall design includes high tensile body ply cord for increased sidewall integrity, reduced rolling resistance and heat buildup. The tire’s sidewall depicts a Deegan 38 shield and stylized raised white block lettering.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to partner with the company whose roots go back to the beginnings of short course racing,” stated Deegan. “Mickey Thompson is an iconic brand in the off-road world, and having the opportunity to develop the Deegan 38 line with Mickey Thompson is another major step in carrying on the deep tradition of the Mickey Thompson brand.”
“Product innovation is part of our 50-year legacy, and we’ve worked with Brian, a champion competitor, to develop a new product with trusted Mickey Thompson quality and performance,” stated Ken Warner, VP of marketing, Mickey Thompson. “The Deegan 38 offers a truly unique mud terrain tire with long tread life, versatility and rugged appearance for demanding enthusiasts.”
