Mickey Thompson Tyres

1. America’s Specialty 4WD Tyre Company

  • 4 different carcass constructions: Bias, Bias-Belted, Radial and PowerPly
  • Huge range of specialty sizes
  • Off-road racing tyre specialists

2. Deeper Tread

Having 12.5% deeper tread than most other brands means more grip, more kilometres and more resistance to damage.

3. Stronger Sidewalls

20% more rubber in the upper sidewall reduces the chance of sidewall damage. Thicker sidewalls means Mickey Thompson Tires have a higher load capacity than many other brands.

4. Sidewall Protection

Deep sidebiters take the punishment and reduce sidewall damage. Mickey Thompson’s stand up straighter compared to other brands, which means they are less prone to damage.

5. Leaders in 4×4 Tread Technology

Sipes: All sipes are within the tread block to reduce chipping and tearing.

Modern Tread Pattern: Latest designs have high volume water channels to clear water quickly. The sipe shape reduces tread squirm for better grip and faster steering response.

6. Ultimate Angle for cutting and Self-Cleaning

23° is the ultimate angle for cutting and self-cleaning (used on plough blades, tractor tyres & razor blades). This means you get maximum traction and the same level of road noise as less aggressive tyres.

7. Deeper Sidebiters

  • A unique step design for climbing out of ruts
  • Positioned to protect the sidewall from off-road damage

8. Specialty Sizes

Mickey Thompson Tires have the world’s largest and most diverse range of 4X4 sizes from 30” to 54” diameters and 8” to 19.5” wide!


The most common cause of incorrect wheel alignments is worn parts or movement in the suspension components, impact with an object or incorrect load carrying. Symptoms of incorrect wheel alignments include the vehicle pulling to one side, vibrations or shudders and tyres wearing unevenly. Wheel alignments can deteriorate over time and we recommend them checked regularly.

We can easily check and correct your wheel alignment using our quality balancing and wheel aligning equipment. We offer complimentary rotate and balance and wheel alignment checks with every service, making Snow Country Autos a complete Tyre & Wheel alignment Centre.


Our vehicle side slip metre is an electronic tyre wear check that not only adds to your cars safety but can save you money. Our side slip metre tests your wheel alignment on both front and rear axles and the actual drag from your tyres on the road surface. Having your wheels correctly aligned ensures you have the right amount of ‘rubber on the road’ there for reducing the wear and tear on your tyres which means you don’t have to replace them as often. Correct alignment also means better fuel consumption.

The side slip meter is an added check that goes beyond a visual inspection and road test to scientifically test the wheel alignment of your vehicle. Every service at Snow Country Autos includes a FREE rotate & Balance and Side Slip Wheel Alignment Test. Trust your vehicle with experienced technicians and the most up to date, accurate & credible diagnostic equipment for your peace of mind.
