ITP Mud Lite II Tire Supplies
multipurpose tire built for modern SxS vehicles
Franklin, TN (11/3/2016) - ITP
unveiled the Mud Lite II multi-terrain tire, for
ATV and side-by-side vehicles. The Mud Lite II
features a next generation design with an all-new
profile, carcass, tread compound and pattern.
"The original Mud Lite tire, one of the
most popular tires in our diverse lineup, was
designed for ATVs prior to the introduction of
side-by-side vehicles," stated Rhett Turpin,
Head of ITP Sales. "The new Mud Lite II offers
the same proven performance as the original, but
has been optimized in both profile and design
for use with modern side-by-side vehicles."
new ITP Mud Lite II tire is engineered for
use with today's off-road side-by-side vehicles,
offering a new profile, carcass and signature
tread pattern. The v-shaped center lugs
include integrated dimples for increased
traction and versatility in both muddy and
hard pack trails.
New from the ground up, the multi-purpose Mud
Lite II's new tread design mixes specially designed
lug patterns in strategic locations on the carcass
to create sure-footed traction in the mud as well
as stability and comfort on the trails.
To provide a smooth ride on the trail, ITP engineers
designed Mud Lite II tires with a variable open-lug
tread design to enhance traction over a variety
of trail surfaces.
To minimize tire flex, increase support and
reduce wear, the Mud Lite II tire has unique "tendons"
that connect and stretch between the tire's lugs.
The centerline dimpled, v-shaped lugs enhance
traction on the trail while the lug height and
positioning makes for an incredibly smooth ride
on hard pack. The new multi-terrain Mud Lite II
carries a robust 6-ply rating and the lug height
varies from ¾-inch to 1 1/8-inch, depending on
the size. The tire's shoulder also features an
enhanced tread treatment for added sidewall protection
Dimpled center lugs and a re-engineered chevron
pattern provide massive forward traction in the
mud. This tread design improves bite and enhances
the tire's self-cleaning capabilities. The tire's
shoulder features an innovative mud breaker tread
design, which sits slightly raised on the tire
between the taller chevron lugs, to channel debris
and reduce the dreaded horsepower-robbing suction
drag in muddy terrain.
ITP Mud Lite II tires are engineered to
offer a smooth ride on a wide variety of
trails, while also supplying enough traction
and bite for conquering nasty mud holes.
"ITP engineered the next generation Mud
Lite II tire with new levels of innovation and
integrated technology to meet the modern demands
of ATV and side-by-side vehicle owners -- riders
who seek optimal durability, exceptional performance
and versatility from an all-terrain tire,"
