    Just had 4 new Mickey Thompson tires put on my stock wheels today. 305/35R20 drag radials on the back and the matching Street Comp 275/40R20 on the front. I don't think anyone has posted using all 4 yet. Took about a 40 minute test drive and they feel great. Handing is good and very smooth. They look good too! Still need to clean them up.

    Nice. Can I ask why you chose MT's, over say, Nto5r's, or ToyoR888's?

    One more question, what's up with the "supercharged" wording above the logo?

    Is that a U.S. feature, or something aftermarket?

    It didn't come with mine, not even as an option...

    Looks great and I love that you matched front to rear within the brand. Mismatched brands is cheesy IMO

    I love the look. I know it will help at the track but what does it do for normal driving?

    Simple, the car will never be driven in the rain. Not a daily driver so only taken out on nice days and will be in heated storage for the winter.

    I have a set of aftermarket wheels with Nitto NT05 315's and 275's.(see below) The 315's aren't the drag radials and they really don't hook very well. So I decided to try the MT's. So far the rear tires are much better. Plus I get 2 totally different looks with the 2 sets of wheels and tires. 2.jpg

    Just curious. Did you buy your Mickey's locally or online? The MT's can be tough to find locally (at least where I am).
