Default Tire Size

Can I run a 295/40 ZR20 tire on my factory 7 spoke Saleen rims? Saleen had a 275/40ZR20 Perilli PZero ROSSO's installed.

Can you mix tire brands from front to back? I need new rear tires but my front Perilli PZERO ROSSO's are like brand new still and I don't want to purchase new ROSSO's for the rear. Too much money and little tread life IMO.

Do you have 9" or 10" rears?

No clue, how can i tell. I'm assuming 9". The 10" was a optional upgrade, however the original owner purchased the optional tire upgrade so maybe he got the 10" rim.

If you have a 275 on their, more than likely it's a 9". But if you want to check, measure the inside width of the wheel hoop. Give me a call if you need help in how to do this.

Yes I have
High Performance Pirelli P-Zero Rosso
275/40ZR20 Rear
275/35ZR20 Front

Why would they put a 40 series tire or rear and 35 on the front, is this looks, or is there some performance enhancement?
P275/35ZR20 (Front)Optional
P275/40ZR20 (Rear)Optional

Just jack up the car and remove a rear wheel and inside it should tell you what width it is. All of the Saleens (even extremes) came with the same size tires. They put a 40 in the rear because it is a taller sidewall tire and give the car it's raked stance.

Thanks guy for your help. Im excited today because after some telephone calling and emails I finally got in touch with someone who was the Controller of Saleen Canada. I even got the authentication certificate sent to me for free. I can now confirm I have the 8th of 28 produced in the 2006 Saleen Canada production year.
