Mickey Thompson Unveils Highly Anticipated 42x13.50R17LT to the BAJA BOSS® M/T Line


April 1, 2024 - Mickey Thompson Tires, the trailblazer of high-performance tires for off-road enthusiasts, announces the launch of the long-awaited 42x13.50R17LT size addition to the BAJA BOSS® M/T line of off-road tires.

Engineered and approved for the incredibly popular 17x9" wheel fitment, the new 42-inch diameter tire is strategically positioned to elevate the off-road experience, its design offers enhanced under-axle clearance while the 13.50" width provides a narrower track width, ideal for maneuvering through rugged terrain.

The BAJA BOSS® M/T new size offers:

  • Sidewall Height and Flexibility: The substantial sidewall height of the 17-inch wheel enhances flexibility and grip, especially during off-road scenarios when the tire is deflated. The extended SideBiters™ deliver additional biting edges for superior traction.
  • PowerPly XD™ Construction: The BAJA BOSS® M/T boasts PowerPly XD™ 3-Ply construction, providing heightened puncture resistance and exceptional durability. Its innovative bias-angle ply design efficiently distributes impact load across a broader area of underlying radial plies. This innovative feature ensures quicker steering response and increased stability both on and off the road.
  • Strength Redefined: The inclusion of a 50% heavier denier third ply* sets a new industry standard for off-road tire construction, reinforcing Mickey Thompson’s commitment to excellence.

The BAJA BOSS® M/T delivers excellent traction in extreme off-road conditions without compromising on-road manners. Enthusiasts can now experience the thrill of this first-of-its-kind 42x13.50R17LT tire size.
