These could be some Mickey Thompson, Dick Cepeks, or Super Swamper. The wrap around tread help protect the sidewall and give extra tread when aired down.

Some of the Mickey Thonpson and Interco tires are available with crazy tread patterns....dig around and get a good idea on em. Also be careful as the really serious ones are differnt with setups on how they are put together.

Super swamper TSL SX's have a lot of side biters, so do the mickey thompson baja claws. I think the bias ply version of the 'claws has more side bites than the radial version. BTW, the TSL SX's are also bias ply. great for off road, not so great for the daily driver. SS thornbirds probably have the most aggresive side lugs, but they are horrible sand tires
