Mickey Thompson Releasing New Deegan 38 Mud Tire
Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels is using the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in November to introduce its new Mickey Thompson Deegan 38 light truck tire.
The Stow, Ohio-based private brand tire marketer said it will host off-road racing champion Brian Deegan — namesake for MT’s Deegan 38 — who will help introduce the tire along with MT executives during a media conference at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5, at booth 43035 at the SEMA Show.
Mr. Deegan is a four-time Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) Short Course champion and 16-time X Games medalist. He competes in the Pro 2 Unlimited Class and the Pro Lite Unlimited Class using Mickey Thompson tires.
In addition to his LOORRS success, he is an international competitor and, MT said, the most decorated Freestyle Motocross rider in the competition’s history.
Ken Warner, MT’s vice president of marketing, said “today’s trucks, Jeeps and off-road vehicles are designed to take on some pretty challenging conditions. Product innovation is part of our 50-year legacy, and we’ve worked with Brian, a champion competitor, to develop a new product using trusted Mickey Thompson technology and quality.”
