LAS VEGAS (Nov. 5, 2015) — The hot 2016 Saleen 302 Black Label Mustang has a place of prominence at Cooper Tire & Rubber Co.'s booth at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas.
The Findlay, Ohio-based tire maker is showing off the car, which is shod with Cooper's ultra-high-performance Zeon RS3-S tires, through the show's conclusion on Nov. 6.
“Saleen is an iconic American name in motorsports, synonymous with superb quality and unparalleled performance,” Cooper said, noting the Mustang now comes standard with Cooper Zeon RS3-S tires.
“We are excited to work with Saleen, whose maximum performance vehicles give us an opportunity to demonstrate the capabilities and state-of-the-art technology engineered into our high performance products,” said Scott Jamieson, Cooper's director of product management.
“Our RS3-S tires meet the exacting standards of Saleen, while also meeting the demands of everyday performance enthusiasts.”
The race-inspired RS3-S “delivers world-class dry road traction, increased handling and exceptional cornering,” according to Cooper. The tire's tread compounds are specifically formulated to combine dry and wet traction with “crisp handling and high speed capabilities,” the company said, adding that the RS3-S also features a 20,000-mile treadwear protection warranty and a 45-day road test guarantee.
