The Street Comp ultra-high performance (UHP) tire from Mickey Thompson utilizes Mickey Thompson’s legendary tire technology in a street tire that’s perfect for today’s late model American muscle cars and more. Now offered in a super wide 315x35R17 for Ford Mustang with a 17-inch wheel, the Street Comp is now available in 19 popular sizes. 

 

 

“The Street Comp was designed with today’s late model American muscle cars in mind,” said Ken Warner, VP of Marketing, Mickey Thompson. “These cars have higher horsepower and torque and need a UHP street tire with superior response and ride comfort. This new wide size is the perfect choice for the new model Mustang, and reflects the incredible spirit of this iconic muscle car.”

Mickey Thompson is traditionally associated with drag racing and if these are designed with American muscle cars in mind, I can't help but wonder if there is an emphasis in forward traction for drag racing at the expense of lateral grip. Even if some of the newer muscle cars do just fine in the corners.

I'd love to see some kind of side-by-side comparison to some other UHP tires. Even if you can't get to a track to mount a couple on the same day, just some impressions on a car you're used to driving. You guys should get a set mounted for one of your project cars.
