Thanks to its partnerships with many other SEMA companies, many of the vehicles expanding Atturo’s presence at the 2017 SEMA show will feature – the Trail Blade BOSS®.

So much so that the BOSS is the tire of choice for the Expedition SEMA Toyota FJ traveling over 5,000 miles off road on its way to the SEMA Show.

The BOSS tread is designed from the Quartermaster QSA-1 BOSS HOG knife, a blade made for heavy duty, hardcore use. Alternating shoulder blocks follow the outline of the knife handle tread. The tread’s high void ratio provides superior grip across the varied terrain. Smaller center tread blocks are linked for stability from the high abrasion abuse of rocks.
