Mickey Thompson Street Comps on the 3.7s

So I am replacing my Goodyear F1s with these:

Mickey Thompson Street Comp Mustang Tire - 255/40-19 90000001622 (05-16 All) - Free Shipping

I saw some pretty good reviews for them. I wanted to get something balanced with sticky and daily driving functionality.

I was wondering if anyone had used these on the 3.7 and if they gripped well for the amount of power we put down. (share your thoughts ) I didn't want to post this in the general section because people with bigger engines might say they don't grip well. Even though they are putting down a lot more power then us.

I was also forced to replace my rear wheels because the got a nasty cut in them this weekend They did have 23k miles on them though so it wasn't a total loss.

The cut does go below the tread so I didn't want to push it with driving on them a lot. The front wheels are still good with about 5/32 tread left. Will most likely replace those with a wider rim and tire in September and rotate those to the back and put these in the front (19x10 rims in the back and 19x8.5 in front).


Hoping AM gets these to me in a decent amount of time.

I'll let you know what I think. Ordering mine at the end of the month. Planning to do a fair amount of driving with them this summer.

Awesome. I placed my order for the rear two for now (255/40/19). In September, i will be getting wider rims and matching mickeys for those also. I will get those bigger wheels put on the back and rotate these 255s to the front. I will keep the extra 2 19x8.5s as spare in case something happens.

I plan on getting the mickeys installed this next weekend.

But probably wont go to the drag strip till later in the summer most likely.

I have 285/35 19 and can't get them to grip. It Might be because of how the road is, or because I'm still on my stock suspension.

I'd say that's because of your suspension. My pirelli's (factory 235 18s) gripped from a dig after I lowered it. Now that the tread is quite low, they don't grip anymore lol.

This year in planing on lowering my mustang as its not my daily anymore. If it doesn't grip, I'll get a different tire. Weird because the road by my house I'll be on 3rd and as soon as I get on it around 3k-4K I feel the car slipping and it's not grabbing. I think it's the road also.

You have MTs? I wasn't sure if you had Nittos or something else.

Does anyone know if this can be put on a 19x8.5 rim?

Mickey Thompson Street Comp Mustang Tire - 285/35-19 90000001623 (05-16 All) - Free Shipping

Just checking to see what my options are with how far I can go with tire size before the rim just needs swapped altogether.

I know it gives recommend wheel sizes but just wanted to ask.

285/35/19 shows "approved rims" as 9.5-11.0.

I saw that. But wondered if anyone has tried going outside the box with tires just to test looks, fitment, functionality.

Mickey's

My 2012 3.7 6-speed came off a 2-year lease w/Borla cat-back, Airaid cold air, and AM 19 X 8.5 wheels on the front w/Mickey Thompson 255/40, and 19 X 10 wheels on the rear with Mickey 285/35 on the rear. The rears had to be replaced with about 25000 on them (one had a tread cut), but the fronts are still going strong at 35000 miles. I liked the MT's but replaced the rears with Firestone Firehawk's because of a lot lower price, and I was looking for better mileage.

Apparently some have done it. It's about a 1" bulge.

So that answers my question about if they fit. But the other question would be - would it cause any problems if you were to launch hard on them or anything?

You will not be benefiting from the full 285 contact patch when it's on a wheel too small. Plenty of info about that on the ole inner web šŸ˜€šŸ‘šŸ»

Ok that was my other concern. Thanks man! I will just replace the 19x8.5s in September with 19x10s along with those tires so I get the full benefit.


As far as getting that stance where the back end sits a little higher, will these give it or would I need to find a taller tire (?)

Many thanks! So definitely changing the rear rims in Sept! I will keep the 2 19x8.5s and put normal tires on them so if I have to change the rears out due to snow or something, I will have a backup. Or spares for the front if one gets damaged.

The MT tire size chart shows the 285/35 as .1" smaller dia then the 255/40's.
So no rise. And it doesn't look like they have a 285/40.

Aww crap. So if anything, it might help level the car out?

What if I went 20x10s with a MT rear tire?

Mickey Thompson Mustang Street Comp Tire - 305/35-20 90000020062 (05-16 All) - Free Shipping

Wonder if those will be ok for our 3.7s or go...

Well the 0.1" is less then an 1/8", which is like next to nothing.
He know of course the taller you make your rear tires the more you reduce your torque or like equivalent to lowering you gear ratio slightly. And if you go to something like a 28" dia rear tire it only raises it about 1/2".
I don't get it. Didn't you recently put in all you suspension upgrades, why did't you think about wanting a raked look then?

Nah the suspension is how I want it. I always thought the cars with bigger wheels in the back were cool. lol.

So I am confused. I always hear mixed thoughts/ideas. When drag racing, will you get better times with a taller or shorter tire? I tried googling for info and I come across mixed theories.

My gear ratio being 3.73.

I saw some pretty good reviews for them. I wanted to get something balanced with sticky and daily driving functionality.

I was wondering if anyone had used these on the 3.7 and if they gripped well for the amount of power we put down. (share your thoughts ) I didn't want to post this in the general section because people with bigger engines might say they don't grip well. Even though they are putting down a lot more power then us.

I was also forced to replace my rear wheels because the got a nasty cut in them this weekend They did have 23k miles on them though so it wasn't a total loss.

The cut does go below the tread so I didn't want to push it with driving on them a lot. The front wheels are still good with about 5/32 tread left. Will most likely replace those with a wider rim and tire in September and rotate those to the back and put these in the front (19x10 rims in the back and 19x8.5 in front).


Hoping AM gets these to me in a decent amount of time.
So I took my car around the corner to Discount Tire. Since I purchased Road Hazard warranties on all of them, I figured I would give it a shot and see what they would say.

As soon as the guy saw the cut in the tread he said they would definitely replace it. So out the door, I just paid $35 for a new Goodyear F1 tire because they charge that amount to put a warranty on the new tire.

So I will have 1 new Goodyear F1 in the front. The other Goodyear F1 has 7/32 left I believe. And I will have the 2 Mickey Thompsons in the back.

Didn't even spend $500 and almost have all new tires. Lol. For 255/40/19s, I would say that is decent.

Then of course in 6 months I will get wider wheels and tires put on the back and move the existing 2 back MTs to the front. Then keep the 2 Goodyear tires and rims for spares.

I am always skeptical on warranties. But I am extremely thankful I had these Road Hazard warranties. I would say for $30 a tire, it definitely gives you some relief when you mess up your tires on the road.

Tire rack has the dimensions for all tires they sell, assuming you can find the tires you want on their site. You want your tire's tread width to be the same as your rim width, or ideally 1/2" narrower. This will give the best balance of sidewall stability and contact patch.

As far as stance, use a tire height calculator Tire Height Calculator - Wallace Racing

Granted, Tire Rack's site will also include tire heights in the specs, that Wallace racing app is good for at least knowing what tire you're looking for.


Looks like Tire rack doesnt sell Mickeys, but luckily all that information is still on their site. For a 19 x 8.5" rim, it looks like a 245/40/19 which has a tread width of 8.8" and a height of 28". Its slightly wider than ideal, but all the other tires that are a decent width are either too tall and/or too wide.

Looks like they're a 300tw tire, and i know there is no universal rating for treadwear, but that should be able to hold modest 3.7 power and gear even in a 245 size. You got 3.31s right? You may spin a little on the 1-2 shift, and possibly a little off the line, but you can only do so much with an 8.5" rim.

I have 3.73s, tune, headers, etc. I also have a full rear suspension so I am hoping that will help keep the tires/wheels planted.
