Welcome to the Mickey Thompson Legend
American motor racing legend and innovator Mickey Thompson gave tyre design no limits. His tyre company has been a leader in tyre innovation since 1963 and is now known worldwide as a leader in high performance 4x4 tyres and wheels for the track and offroad.
Winning races in record times motivated Mickey Thompson’s innovations in tyre design. He designed the tyres that made him the fastest man on earth by travelling at 406.6 mph (650.6 kph); set a record time to win the most grueling offroad race of them all the Baja 1000 and go on to set 485 speed and endurance records, more than any man on earth.
Mickey Thompson championed many firsts in tyres. Sidebiters, tread running down the sidewall of a tyre; an offroad 4x4 tyre with a directional tread pattern at 23 degrees; and Kevlar-belted 4x4 tyres are all original Mickey Thompson innovations.
Today, Mickey Thompson Tyres continue to be a leader in tyre innovation. The latest? PowerPly, a carcass construction that gives a tyre faster response.
