Few names in the hobby resonate more than Mickey Thompson. As a driver, designer, and manufacturer of performance equipment, he was one of the most renowned speed merchants in the heyday of post-war SoCal culture. The man may have passed, but his spirit lives on with his products, such as the new tire/wheel configurator for your late-model Camaro in the Mickey Thompson Tires website.
When you visit the configurator, you are first asked the year of your car (or the year you dream to own), then the make (Chevrolet), model, (Camaro), and sub-model (ZL1 coupe). Next, you can choose your color from the paint palette and then you’re ready to pick your 20-inch wheels: black, matte black, or silver. Mickey Thompson has two tire choices for these wheels: the Street Comp UHP or the Staggered package with 275/40R20 up front, 305/35R20 out back. This is what Mickey Thompson say about the latter:
Modern Muscle Cars deliver massive amounts of power and torque to the rear tires. In most cases, standard size tire and wheel fitments are adequate to provide the necessary traction. Where more horsepower is present then a wider tire contact patch is required, this is why Mickey Thompson builds “Staggered” Fitments Street Comp applications, more traction, better handling and better looks.
