Mickey Thompson was a mechanical innovator, creating and fabricating his race cars for better durability and faster speeds, hitting 294 mph in 1958. He even won the Mechanical Achievement Award for his design of Indy 500 cars. It was with this same innovation that he designed his wheels, and that enthusiasm exists today with Mickey Thompson wheels. If you look at the Classic and Sidebiter you will notice the similarity to the old steel wheel designs used by off road racers many years ago. But now wheels are made with low pressure casting and aluminum alloy materials for added strength, plus these new wheels are much lighter than the old steel wheels. We think of Mickey Thompson wheels as a ride on history.
Mickey Thompson wheels had featured classic designs in the Classic and Sidebiter styles, but take a look at the newer wheels, the Metal Series, and you will see that they are moving toward very cutting edge designs, we like it. New aggressive spoke styles, machined accents, and a Bold M/T Metal center cap. These wheels are available in multiple sizes to fit Trucks, Jeeps, and SUV’s.
