Teaser: Mickey Thompson’s New Street Comp Ultra High Perf Tire

So you thought that Mickey Thompson Tires was all about cruiser or drag racing tires? Well, guess again. Here is the latest top secret project from M/T, their new Street Comp ultra high performance tire.

While there isn’t a lot of information on this new tire yet, we have been told that the tires have already broken the 1G mark on the skidpad and promise to be a strong contender among rival UHP brands.

The Street Comp boasts a 300 treadwear rating with AA traction and A temperature. They will be released to the public in September, but keep an eye out for a road test from us between now and then.
