About Mickey Thompson

It would be nearly impossible not to be doing all the right things if you can stay in business since 1963 and be successful at what you do and that is just the case with MICKEY THOMPSON WHEELS, & our Mickey Thompson tire collection is an undisputed leader in the high performance tire arena with a multiplicity of innovations to their credit such as the Wide/Low Tires at the Indy 500-12" Wheel in 1963 or the First Wide/Low Tires Red/White Sidewalls at the Indy 500-15" Wheel in 1964. The World Renowned race car driver, Mickey Thompson, had a dream of being the fastest race car driver on earth but he had difficulty getting a tire company to design a tire that would go 400 miles per hour so Mickey and a remarkable tire engineer by the name of Gene Mc Mannis decided to start their own tire company thus the start of the MICKEY THOMPSON Wheels & our Mickey Thompson tire collection. Then in 1963, after Mickey Thompson became the fastest man on record by traveling at 406.6 miles per hour three years earlier, the company designed the groundbreaking tires for the Indy 500, three times the width and with a lower profile affording more stability and the rest is history. Then Mickey and Gene MCMANNIS, a true technical genius, designed and built bias-belted off road racing tires, the precursor to today’s off-road tires. Then in 1991 the United States Navy chose MICKEY THOMPSON TIRES for their SEAL Fast Attack Vehicles during the Gulf War and that is truly a confirmation of the quality of the MICKEY THOMPSON Wheels & Mickey Thompson tires and the list of innovations goes on and on in the history of the company and it is no surprise that the company has been the first in design in almost every year since its inception – you can’t get much better than that.
