Mickey Thompson Classic III Compared to Classic II
I ordered a set of 4 Mickey Thompson Classic IIs about a year and a half ago. I wanted to finally have a full size spare, so it was time to order another wheel, and put the extra 31 I had on it. They don't sell Classic IIs anymore, now it is the Classic III. I looked on the forum to see if there were any differences between the two other than price. I saw something about a higher load rating, but I don't know if that true. To me it seems like the back spacing and offset are the same as the classic ii, but there is a difference in the appearance of the wheel. The 8 holes in the wheel, which give it that classic look, are significantly bigger on the Classic IIIs. I remember when I got my Classic IIs, and I was a bit disappointed at the size of the holes. The picture that 4wd.com and quadratec had on their websites for the Classic II showed the 17" wheel, and the holes on the 15" wheel are much smaller. I like the Classic III look better.
