    Was wonderin' if anyone knew if the stock looking 03-04 cobra wheels can
    be had in a wide size such as 10" or 10 1/2". Looked on Tire Rack and some others but was not able to find. I would like to keep the look of the stock wheels but go bigger in the back to put on a wider tire such as 305 or 315.
    Thanx in advance. :D

    A 315 Nitto fits the stock rim very well actually! That's the ONLY 315 that will fit well though. AFS makes an 03/04 replica wheel in a 17X10.5. I actually have a set on my car now. The Nitto 315 on my 10.5 has a perfectly flat sidewall, no bulge at all. Once the Nitto's wear out I'm switching to the GY GS-D3's. Their 315 is a full inch wider than the Nitto 315. Keep in mind if you go with the AFS 10.5's and a 315 tire you may need to shave your IRS bolt, or use a button head bolt, or a wheel spacer.

    AFS also has 9 inch widths. Plus they have 'em in 18's if you want to go that route.
