    I am working towards replacing the stock rims w/ 17X9's and was wondering what the widest tire was that I could run on all the corners.(rotation). My Cobra is lowered about 1 to 1-1/2". Thanks in advance.

    Well, you can fit 285s all the way around, but you'll rub up front...

    Then I should be okay with 275s. Thanks for the information 103.

    Thanks Firme. That is something that I did not know. I guess if the new Cobras can do it so can I. :D

    I've got 275/40's all around on my 03 Cobra wheels...but on the 94-98's the fronts rub the A-arm and swaybar with the 03 backspacing...but it's the wheel that actually rubs, not the tire...

    I've got 19/35/285's all the way 'round. No rubbing at all. I guess its all in the correct backspacing...
