Since its founding in 1963, the company has championed many firsts in the tire industry, from wide low-profile street tires to rugged, aggressive-tread off-road tires. Designing and producing innovative tread patterns and compounds to build the best perfo...rmance tires in the world was our focus then, and is still our focus today. Our commitment and dedication to racing began with Mickey Thompson and Gene McMannis.

Gene McMannis' racing accomplishments included designing and developing tires for the Pan American Road Race, Daytona, LeMans, Indy 500, and Bonneville Salt Flats.
