Default CS6 Tire Size?

Does anyone know or could you make an educated guess as to what size tires are on the 20" x 9" American Razor wheels on the Shelby CS6?

My guys said these were as big as you should safely put on!
Check my signature for the size, by the way I got the tires free!

Thanks, you thinkin 'bout the Razors?
I would really like to get some authentic looking COBRA center caps to replace the American Racing caps that came with it.
I almost had a set of the original gunmetal rims with Shelby's signature on them but I waited a week too late and they recalled them!
Got a good deal at www.lawheelsdirect.com, but some changes occured with them about the time they delivered the rims, haven't been able to contact them since.

Yeah I was thinking Razors from Summit Racing and maybe in 18 x9 instead of 20 x 9 or the Shelby CS66 wheels but they are mucho expensive.

I was thinking that the tires for an 18" wheel would be cheaper than the 20" but the 20s sure look nice!

Paid $170.00/wheel, no shipping, free lugs. Won the tires($1000.00) from a local shop at a hockey game. I like the look and the rides not too much different. Gets a little wheel vibration between 60 an 70 but don't go that speed much anyhow.LOL But boy do these things grab the road, no tire slip in corners and no burnouts off the line, just GO!

definately go wider than 255 in the rear.... I have 20 x 8.5 front wheels, and 20 x 10 rear wheels... with 245/40's in the front and 275/35's in the rear and in my opinion...it looks awesome... I love how wide the rear wheels and tires look... definately gives it a way more aggresive stance...
