  1. Are these real Cobra R wheels?

    Thanks in advance!
     
  2. Yes, real cobra r are on fact made in japan. They don't say ford anywhere. Those are the highly desirable r58 wheels which are lighter and stronger than r50s which are ford made r wheels.

    Early ones said "Nippon" later ones said "hidonex"
     

  3. Yup, there's a 24 on the inside on one of the spokes. It says 17x9JJ 24. 24 has a circle around it.

    BTW...what is r58?
     

  4. Yes, those are r58 wheels. It's the part number


    M-1007-R58 - 1995 SILVER MUSTANG COBRA R WHEEL
     
  5. R58 is the 24mm offset rims
    M179's are even harder to find and are a 36mm offset, i am forever looking for sets of those rims.
