    I'm looking to get a custom set of Fikse wheels made. I am thinking about 18x9 front and 18x10 rear on a 98 Cobra. What would be the ideal offset on these widths? I am going to run 295/35/18 rear tires and 255/40/18 fronts. I know that all manufacturers tires run a little different in actual width, but knowing this, what would the ideal offset be for the size wheels I want to run? Would a 25mm offset front and rear be fine, or should they be more like 23mm front and 25mm rear? Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Where did you get '98's in 10.5 width?!? I've been looking for those for years!

    Regards,
    John.

    Sorry I just saw this, actually the only company that has them anymore is OE wheels. Most people have discontinued them, which doesn't make any send to me as popular as they are.. you can get the chrome ones all day long though....

    10th anniversary 03 with chrome Y2K Cobra R's

    Here's my baby with 18" chrome 2000 Cobra R's....did things a little different with these. Ford's are 18 x 9.5, aftermarkets are 18 x 9 with a lesser offset, I've seen one with the 18 x 9.5's on the front and thought they stick out too far past the fender wells. 255/40-18's on the front and 285/35-18's back. Sorry for the bad pic but it's January in Pittsburgh and outside shots are hard to come by.
