Visit Mickey Thompson in the 'Global Tire Expo' area at booth #43021 to see our BSTs on display.
If you’re attending the SEMA show, going on now through the weekend, be sure to stop by the Mickey Thompson booth and check out the BST wheels on display. Mickey Thompson is the number one tire pick when it comes to drag racing, and we are proud they are choosing BST wheels for their display at the SEMA show this year.
Mickey Thompson tires are the fastest and quickest motorcycle drag race tires in the world, and it only makes sense to pair them with BST Wheels. From ET, to Shootout, to Pro Stock, to Top Fuel, the world records are all held by Mickey Thompson. They also support the growth and success of motorcycle drag racing by supporting many different race series like the AHDRA, MIROCK, PMRA and NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle.
Brock’s Performance President, Brock Davidson, was excited to help out with the Mickey Thompson booth by supplying BSTs. “I remember back in the late 90s we had reached the limits of tire technology for our street bikes' capabilities. Mickey Thompson stepped up in a big way, by working with me and several other racers, to engineer a better tire for street bike drag racing. The results speak for themselves as we went on to be the first street bike in the 7 second zone on a Mickey, and they have been dominating ever since. From that point on I have been a huge Mickey Thompson advocate, not only for the great performance their tires offer, but also for their willingness to advance the sport,” said Brock Davidson.
You can see Mickey Thompson and BST combinations on winning drag race teams like HTP Racing, Stotz Racing, and Paquette Racing.

For many years, BST wheels have been the standard against which all others are judged for strength, durability, and lightness, for both road and race use. These wheels are manufactured in a single molding operation using a unique aerospace process to produce a wheel that's far stronger than any standard or magnesium wheel, as well as much lighter. With BST you can be sure you'll have a product which is the result of decades of research, development, testing, and certification by industry bodies.
