AKRON (March 8, 2005) — Performance car tuner Saleen Inc. has selected Dunlop tires for two new limited-edition performance cars.
Saleen will fit SP Sports, size 275/35ZR20, as standard on the 2005 Saleen Mustang S281 coupe, convertible and speedster models. In the sport compact market, Saleen will equip its Focus N20 with SP Sport FM901 tire, sizes 215/40R17 and 215/45R17.
“Enthusiasts understand that it's not just a Mustang, it's a Saleen Mustang,” said Andy Traicoff, director of Dunlop consumer tire marketing. “It's not just a Focus, it's a Saleen Focus. And they understand that not all performance tires are created equal.”
Saleen vehicles, designed the past 20 years by custom car builder Steve Saleen, are sold through authorized dealers. Each Saleen comes with serialized console and engine bay plaques verifying the vehicle's authenticity. The company's Web site is www.saleen.com.
