In 1963, Mickey started his own tyre company with Gene McMannis, a chief designer from Goodyear, and designed revolutionary tyres for Mickey’s cars in the Indy 500.
Most tyres running then used a narrow tread with a hard rubber compound. Mickey’s tyres were made from a soft compound three times the width with a lower profile giving more stability and a lower centre of gravity.
This innovation made Mickey’s new cars so fast they were almost banned but paved the way for the tyres you see in Indy car and Formula One racing today.
