New Finish

Mickey Thompson's Street Comp SC-5 wheel design is now available in a variety of finishes. The SC-5's original finish is gloss black with a machined lip, and jumping into the lineup are flat black (all flat black) and hypersilver (machined lip). Mickey Thompson says the SC-5 is the perfect complement to the company's Street Comp UHP tire, and it's available in 12 popular sizes, covering 17-, 18-, and 20-in diameters. The SC-5 wheel design is the foundation for Mickey Thompson's Enhanced Stance System. Info: (330) 928-9092; www.mickeythompsontires.com.
