What's wrong with my maters?

I seem to be struggling with my tomatoes this whole season. These are tycoon tomatoes growing in 5 gal. buckets. They started out beautifully early in the season but are now quite pitiful. I have a big spider mite problem that started about a month ago. I use Bonide 3 in 1 and soap spray which doesn't seem to be doing much good these days. My plants have lots of yellow and brown leaves and the stems seem quite woody as you can see in the pic. I took these tomatoes off the plant earlier this morning. I water daily and use Miracle Grow dissolved in the water about every 2 weeks. The weather here is quite hot, high around 98. I have moved them into a more shady area but don't think it's helping. The tomatoes I harvested today look "wrinkled" on the tops. Any suggestions?

Look like they're drying out.
