Default Mickey Thompson 295/45/17 availability answered

I emailed and they replied...

"Thanks for your email and those have been on a backorder we should see
some around the week of the 19th and should get enough to fill the backorders
and have some leftover so I would get an order in.

You can try Pro tire @ 405-721-4025 and they may have some now or will be getting
some as we don’t sell direct. Hope this clears everything up for you."

That's kinda funny, because I have been hearing the same thing for months. I talked to a distributor who handles nothing but Mickey Thompsons and he said he would give me a free set if they were out before May.

Looks like you're getting a free pair then, cause mine arrived today

They have been trickling in lately.

my distributor has seen a few pairs here and there. Not an abundance of them yet.

American Tire Distributors of Omaha, they didn't have them in stock though. They special ordered them for me.

Hey by the way, I got these tire with the intention of buying a set of streetlites from you to go with them. I've been waiting until the 17x4 come out to make a move on them though. My question is what rear size would go better with these, 17x9.5 or 17x11? Seems like they'd be a tad small for the 17x11s so I was leaning towards the 17x9.5s...

MT approved rim is a 9.5-11.

So either or. Your tread width is 10.6" so you will not really be stretching it where it will look bad on the wheel on an 11" wide.
