    Well, the center cap is aftermarket and I don't believe it would fit a real R wheel.

    If they were real, there would be a Ford logo and p/n cast into the backside.

    Also real Rs are discontinued, so they tend to be fairly expensive...especially if the are M179 cobra Rs designed For Fox Mustangs (as opposed to the R50/R58 rim)

    M179, R50 and R58 are the last digits of the Ford part number designating the three offsets

    While a 245/45 tire will definitely fit on a 9" wide wheel, I've always felt (this is just my opinion) that they're smaller width made them look wierd. IE: not nearly enough tire for the wheel.

    As far as the center caps go, I had a set of replica Cobra R's on my '02 GT onto which I installed real center caps. Here's what they're supposed to look like.

    This thread has some good info on that:

    toolow91 what did you have in mind these were cheap so if I end up not liking them I'll definitely go something else they did have some fr500s there but I didn't like the black with a machined lip
