    i need to know if there are wheel well differences between the v6/gt/cobra models from the 1994-98 platform. i need to know before i buy the rims, b/c they won't take them back after the tires are mounted. i have dual exhaust (if it matters) coming out the back. the tire size will be 315/35s. if anyone knows, i need this specific question answered for my year model (98). thanks!

    Why the hell are you putting 10.5 in wide wheels!? let alone 315s!? 9 inch wide wheels are the most you're ever going to need man. It shouldn't create rubbing issues, but damn dude, rething your sizing.

    The guy is smart. He's going with 10.5 b/c it looks tight. Top it off it will make your regular street tires grib like drag radials b/c he has extra width and surface area to bite the ground harder.

    Start paying attention to the signatures... :nice:

    10.5 inch is wide...I would go with 9 inch on the back and maybe 8 on the front...but with the power she is possibly adding later on...she might need the 10.5 :D
