Pirelli Ultra Wide Tire

The era of extra wide low profile tires is beginning and Pirelli has the market cornered. Get ready for Pro Custom.



Debuting last yeat in Vegas at the '07 SEMA show, the Pirelli P405/25R24 tire is a serious patch of rubber for serious applications only. Coming in at only 32 inches tall and almost 16 inches wide, the tire alone would require extensive modifications to fit under a truck bed. Not to mention the tire would need to be mounted on a wheel at least 14 inches wide, meaning custom hoops would need to made, stubby axles, and modified (if any) wheel tubs. That said, WOW!, what a look. Several rides at SEMA were equipped with the tire, one of which was this Dodge 1500 with Dually fenders and a single 24x14-inch DUB wheel that filled the fenders. You've probably seen the Big Time Muscle model die cast cars in stores. Just imagine that look in real life and you get a good idea of just how insane a custom truck could look with this awesome new size. Mickey Thompson makes a cool 20-inch tire in the SR1 sport radial, but a 24-inch wheel makes the big and wide combo look incredible. Get ready, here comes the new era of Pro Street trucks called Pro Custom!!!
