Default Tow Truck Tires?

So I've been noticing around my town all of the older tow trucks have these big beefy looking tires on them with big spacing on the lugs and almost look like a mud tire, I have looked all over for what they are or for brands or for a picture but have had no luck, im just really curious as to what they are and why I have only seen tow trucks with them...does anyone have any idea about what I'm talking about?

i do...i usually see them on old trucks...they have tires that are really beefy on the back. where im at they only put them on farm trucks to get better traction in the mud and snow and they are usually pulling some kind of trailer with haybales or equipment on them

Yes, I the ones I've seen usually have really beefy side/shoulder lugs. I saw an older dodge pickup with them on the rear at a stop light but wasnt able to get a good look at them and ever since its been annoying me, they looked pretty cool.

I looked at some of them a little while back and the ones I saw were like power kings or something like that
