Mickey Thompson Tires is synonymous with racing, but they are a great source of rubber for your street rod or street beast. Their Sportsman S/R features the classic features of the Sportsman tire with the added benefit of radial construction. Utilizing radial construction provides the Sportsman S/R tire with the ability to transfer power to the ground more effectively since the sidewall flex does not transfer to the tread. Additionally, the radial construction will provide a smooth ride and stand up to high mileage as well.
One of the unique features of this tire is the flamed tread design that is a mix of both show and go. This tread pattern provides excellent traction in wet conditions, so it is both functional and beautiful. Not everyone has an enclosed trailer to haul the street rod around, so this enhanced traction in wet conditions is a great benefit. Honestly, who hasn’t gone out for cruise and run into a little bit of rain at some point?
These tires are available in extra wide widths for the rear, but they are also available in appropriate sizes to wrap the front wheels as well. The variety of sizing make the Sportsman S/R an ideal choice for street rods, hot rods, and street beasts alike. With an H-speed rating these tires are rated up to 130 mph, just in case a little grudge race might be in the future. For those who are more performance minded, the Sportsman S/R fronts can be combined with the ET Street Radial just case.
