Serious Grip For Serious Rock Crawlers From Mickey Thompson®



01/20/04

Stow, OH - Mickey Thompson's new Competition Claw was developed especially for competition rock crawling. Tested at courses worldwide by some of the best drivers around, this tire is a proven performer conquering the toughest obstacles thrown at it. With a super soft rubber compound and a flexible construction this tire wraps around rocks and climbs over obstacles like no other tire has done before. Currently it is available in sizes 37x13.00-17 (Part #2640) and 35x13.00-15 (Part#2657). The Competition Claw features flexible nylon construction to conform to abnormal surfaces, a soft, tacky, tear resistant tread compound, and a tough cut resistant sidewall compound. This tire is made specifically for rock crawling but is D.O.T. approved for highway use to get you there and back. Note: During competition, due to low air pressure, tire flex and gripping ability of the compound, these tires may require bead lock wheels to prevent tire slippage.
