The Americus Rugged M/T is a mud terrain all season tire manufactured for light trucks. The wide grooves, staggered tread elements and open shoulder design boost the soft and loose terrain traction. The tread elements also ensure excellent all weather traction. The stone ejectors prevent stone retention and the tread disperses mud and snow stuck in the tire's footprint to keep it clean and guarantee constant road contact. The Rugged M/T promotes better road contact during off-road performance which increases the steering responsiveness and driving stability.
