Video: AmericanMuscle.com Reviews Mickey Thompson’s Street Comp Tire


Tire shopping can be tiresome work. Make it easy on yourself by relying on two trustworthy performance parts suppliers to take care of your ride’s rubber requirements: AmericanMuscle.com (AM) and Mickey Thompson (M/T).

AM’s Stephanie Wood recently took a closer look at one of M/T’s high performance dedicated street tires, the Street Comp. “It’s an affordable option in the high performance summer tire category and it brings an asymmetric tread pattern for performance in both wet and dry conditions,” she explains. The aforementioned asymmetric pattern means that they can be rotated to help equalize wear. With a relatively soft compound, this can be key to maximizing tire life.

“One thing to keep in mind, though, is that these are technically summer tires so they can be sensitive to the cold. You’ll want to make sure that they have some heat in them before romping on it and taking off down the road,” Stephanie recommends. This is generally the case with any summer tire as a little bit of heat can help soften the compound for ideal performance.

Mickey Thompson’s 17”, 18”, 19”, and 20” sizes are available in a wide range of widths and sidewall heights. If the Street Comp isn’t right for your ride, no worries. AM offers a variety of M/T shoes including the ET Street series, the Sportsman, and dedicated drag slicks. Professional mounting and balancing, nitrogen fills, and free shipping make it a pretty sweet deal, so contact them today.
