    i want to get new tires for the stang. it has the stock cobra 17" wheels and i was thinking about the nitto drag radials. and i really like the look of having the rear tires just a little bigger. i was wondering what sizes to get for the front and rear. thanks.

    I have 245/45/17's in front and 275/40/17 in back. I hear you can go v315/35/17.. but that seems a tad big for stock wheels to me:shrug:

    I dont think you can put a 315 tire on a 8 inch rim but the 275 40 17 drag radials should fit fine.They hook like crazy to.youll love em:nice:

    You can put a 315 on a 17x8, but it's quite a squeeze. There's a guy on here with a red foxbody that has bullitts with them on it, but i'd recommend no more than a 285 for the rear

    what cobra rim are we talking about? an 8" wide rim? a 275 would look goofy...but i guess it would fit. if its a 10.5 inch cobra....go 315 or 335. if its a 9 inch wide 275 is as good.

    you say cobra rims but what year cobra? cause the 03-04 cobra has a 17x9 in rim and I run 315's on them and everyone loves the way the look.
