Stow, OH - Mickey Thompson's new ultra-high performance (UHP) Street Comp is runner -up in this year's New Product Showcase competition at the 2012 SEMA Show in the Best New Tire and Related Product category. The awards are presented in 16 categories, and the criteria for selection included quality, craftsmanship, technical achievement and consumer appeal. More than 2,000 products were submitted for consideration.
"The Street Comp was designed for today's late model American muscle cars that have high horsepower and torque, and require a UHP street tire that performs extremely well in a variety of conditions," stated Ken Warner, VP Sales and Marketing, Mickey Thompson. "This is our first UHP street tire, so we are very proud that the Street Comp has been selected for this award."
Introduced earlier this year to media acclaim, the Street Comp integrates Mickey Thompson's legendary race tire technology in a street tire for great performance, handling and ride comfort. Available in 18 popular sizes, the Street Comp offers a UTQG 300 AA A treadwear rating and a unique tread design.
