The Crusher is Dick Cepek's Off-Road Maximum Traction light truck tire developed for enthusiastic pickup truck and sport utility vehicle drivers looking for ultra aggressive radials in large sizes. It is designed to combine lively on-road handling with dynamic off-road traction.
Crusher radial tires feature an 18/32" to 20/32"-deep (depending on size) high-void symmetric design that features self-cleaning, cross-tread lugs to combine on-road handling with off-road traction in mud and deep snow. Shoulder lugs (which alternate being stepped in and out) and a wraparound tread design featuring functional Skull & Cross Bone Sidebiters on the upper sidewall combine a unique look with added off-road protection and more traction in loose surfaces. Siped tread lugs provide better grip on smooth surfaces. The Crusher radial's internal structure features twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon on top of three-ply polyester sidewalls for a full six plies of reinforcement under the tread for strength and toughness on- and off-road.
While Off-Road Maximum Traction tires are branded with the M+S symbol and able to churn through deep snow, their typical oversize applications and limited use of snow-biting sipes in their large smooth lugs can challenge their on-road wintertime traction on packed snow and icy surfaces.
