Dick Cepek Extreme Country™ Radial Mud Terrain Tire

Product Review:

The good folks over at Dick Cepek just came out with this all new design for us off-road enthusiasts and it is AWESOME! We just got a set of 33X12.5R15LT's to mount up and put to the test. All of us here at Quadratec are very anxious to see how this new design really works!
Just by looking at the the tread design, we can tell it will easily become a choice tire in the off-road world. This very well thought out tread pattern really speaks to those who want to run an aggressive mud terrain tire on their daily driver. Tighter inner voids with larger surface area, siped lugs provide better traction and handling on the street, but the wider void outer lugs with an alternating pattern will really grab some rock or pull you through deep mud.

In this application, these Extreme Country™ Radials will be mounted to satin black Mickey Thompson Classic III Alloy Wheels in 15X8 size, bolted to a 2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport equipped with a 4.5" suspension lift... and is also a daily driver.
Evaluating for:

  • Road Noise
  • Dry Street Traction
  • Wet Street Traction
  • Soil and Mud Traction
  • Snow and Ice Traction
  • Rock Traction
  • Tread Wear

Here's a little more information on this aggressive new mud terrain:
The NEW EXTREME COUNTRY™ mud terrain tire is designed with off-road enthusiasts in mind. The tread compound is excellent for maximum traction and even wear during extreme adventures. The extra tread depth provides excellent traction and long life. Two-Ply Next Generation High Tensile (HT) Body Ply Cord enhances sidewall strength without adding weight, rolling resistance, heat buildup or ride harshness. Wide outer void and angled shoulder scallops provide ultimate off-road traction and self-cleaning ability. Tighter inner void/large surface area tread elements provide greater contact area for better handling and a quieter ride. The EXTREME COUNTRY is mud and snow (M+S) rated.

Stay tuned for the full evaluation after putting some miles on these bad boys!
