The Mud Country is Dick Cepek's Off-Road Maximum Traction light truck tire developed for enthusiastic pickup truck and sport utility vehicle drivers looking for tough radials in large sizes. It is designed to combine on-road handling with off-road traction.
Mud Country radial tires are cured in precision laser cut segmented molds to optimize tire uniformity and feature an 18/32" to 23/32"-deep (depending on size) symmetric tread design that combines shoulder lugs (which alternate being stepped in and out) with independent center lugs for off-road traction. Stepped tread blocks increase self-cleaning characteristics and siped tread lugs provide better grip on smooth surfaces. Dick Cepek's trademark "DC" Sidebiters molded onto the upper sidewalls provide added protection and more traction in loose surfaces. The Mud Country 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.
