About

Mickey Thompson Performance Tires designs, develops and distributes specialty tyres for the street, strip, track, and off-road.

 

Since its founding in 1963, the company has championed many firsts in the tyre industry, from wide low-profile street tyres to rugged, aggressive-tread off-road tyres.

 

Designing and producing innovative tread patterns and compounds to build the best performance tyres in the world was our focus then, and is still our focus today.
