Street Comp UHP. The Mickey Thompson Street Comp tire is built especially for ultra high performance applications that demand incredible traction, crisp handling, and high speed cornering ability. You get all these features along with the outstanding styling you would expect from Mickey Thompson.

Superior Wet And Dry Performance. Using a special compound formulated for both dry and wet traction, the Street Comp has a non-directional asymmetrical design for superior summer-oriented performance and features a 300 AA A UTQG rating.

Best Fit Application: 17 x 8 Inch 1979 to 2004 Wheels

NOTE: These are extreme ultra high performance summer specific compound and tread tires. Use during the summer and warm temperature months will result in far superior traction over “all season” tires. Use during the winter months/cold temperatures drastically reduces traction and exponentially increases stopping distance as the compound becomes less sticky.

How long would these last? About how many miles can I expect these to last? Just need a general idea, thanks!


  • These MT's should last you approximately 10,000-20,000 miles - that is with no aggressive driving or burnouts, just normal daily driving. These have a super soft compound that will wear quicker, but will offer you ultimate performance. Hope this helps!

I'd like to start doing autocross this summer. How good are these tires for occasional autocross use?


  • The Mickey Thompson Street Comp Tire - 245/45-17 (79-04 All) are a great tire for track. These tires are very sticky and will grip nicely.

I would recommend this tire to anyone looking for all around performance tires. I can't comment on traction for the rear since I'm running a drag radial. Super fast shipping. I ordered them Monday and they got here Tuesday! Thanks AM!

    These tire look INSANE! Being that it's winter and I'm changing the rims as well I have yet to mount the tires, so I can not rate how well they grip. Asceticly tho you can't go wrong. If you need tires don't think just add to cart and smile when they arrive!

    Street Comps for the front of my fox

    Based on reviews from other forums and folks in the office decided to pull the trigger on these, I have tried them both on the front, where they will eventually live and on the rear, just to check traction in the drive position...I am very pleased. I will be using these all year 'round, understanding the limitaions of the tires.

    The tires are a good summer tire. They are not good for snow or rain they do not grip that well. I will definitely enjoy them in the summer in New York

    Great Tire

    I got these for the front of my 91 lx 50 fitted with enbach pro kit lowering springs. They fit great and hold the road really good. I have them mounted on 9 inch rims so they are ballooned out a little. A 8 inch would have been perfect.

    Great tire

    I could not believe that no one makes a good performance tire in a 15" anymore so I decided to step up to a 17" wheel and went with the MTs. I love the look, ride, handling and traction. Tires have come a long way since the days of the gator backs for the Foxbody. I cannot comment on the wet traction, but the dry traction is great once you put a few miles on them. Let go of the clutch and they hang in there without red lining.

    Great looking rubber. Fit great on my 89 LX with stock ride height. One mean set of shoes. I can't comment on traction just yet, but they look like they will do the job just fine...

    Great tire, great option as opposes to slicks

    I have put about 1000 miles on these tires for the rear of my mach 1 with 4.10 gears, they have proved to be better after appropriately being broken in and heat cycled once or twice. I wanted tires that are not slicks. I already hit up the 1/4 mile with them and had a good outcome. Though a few burn outs and donuts later the rubber get chewed up very fast. These tires are not for fun only grip.

    Great Tire for the Price

    These Mickey Thompson Street Comps track very good in the rain. A lot better than the OE tires. Dry traction is excellent also. The actual ride quality of the tire is great but I rated the ride quality lower because after 3000 miles or so the tires started developing whining noise. The car was aligned and the tires road force balanced when tires were initially installed. I've had the alignment and balance rechecked since then, but still have the tire noise! It's just enough to be annoying.

    These Mickey Thompson Street Comp Tires are Awesome. I have a 99 Mustang GT with only 59K miles on it and these tires make the car drive better than when it was new 17 years ago. Smooth, Quiet, Holds the corners solidly and does great burn outs. I recommend these for summer drivers and the price from AM can't be beat !!!

    These tire look great. The order was easy and delivery was free and exactly as they say it would be. I do recommend this brand for front tires only. If your looking for sticky tires in the rear you might consider going with a 10" wheel and some meaty 315's.

    I didn't want a directional tire and these worked out well. I did have to lower the car in order to fill the wheel gap that I had but it all worked out. AM was very helpful to get the correct stance I was looking for.

    Wow, my car stopped spinning tires!

    I've only had my notchback for a few months and the old tires left a lot to be desired. These have given me traction when I was about ready to throw my hands up. Love them!
