Mickey Thompson, founded in 1963, is known around the world as a leader in high-performance and racing tires and wheels. A collaboration between race car driver, designer, and promoter Mickey Thompson and designer Gene McMannis, the company is driven by a passion for innovative design, with the ultimate goal of creating the best performance tires and wheels in the world.
Polished wheels are buffed by machine or by hand, which gives them an extremely shiny, chrome-like finish. The finish is often protected by a clearcoat to prevent corrosion. If a clearcoat isn't used, the wheels will need repolishing on a regular basis to maintain their high shine.
Painted black wheels are spray-painted with automotive-style paint and are available in several finishes, including satin black, semi-gloss black, carbon black, stealth black, matte black, and flat black.
