Company Description

The Company 

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

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

Our Racing Heritage

Our commitment and dedication to racing began with Mickey Thompson and Gene McMannis. Mickey, an innovative race car driver, designer, and promoter held 485 National and International speed and endurance records. Gene McMannis' racing accomplishments included designing and developing tires for the Pan American Road Race, Daytona, LeMans, Indy 500, and Bonneville Salt Flats.
