Ken Warner, Vice President of Marketing for Mickey Thompson said the following: “Teaming up with ROUSH to design the new 20-inch co-branded ROUSH-M/T Metal Series wheels wrapped with the popular Baja ATZP3’s for this F-150 has been a great experience.” “The F-150 retains its place as the most popular pickup with more than 250,000 sold by the end of April this year. We’ve worked with ROUSH to create a show-stopping performance F-150 with impressive off-road capability.”

The Baja ATZP3 tires combines Mickey Thompson’s T4 chip-resistant tread compound with PowerPly sidewall construction. Its beefy tread blocks and an extra-wide footprint create a virtual all-terrain tire that’s perfect for off-road use, while it also delivers a smooth and quiet ride on the street.
