Will these wheels fit?

  1. I'm looking at getting 4 new rims and tires for my 2003 Cobra. Will 18x10 deep dish fit the back correctly and will 18x9 fit the front correctly.?

    Would the 18in help with handling or hurt the handling?

    Thanks for any info
     
  2. I have a 03 Cobra as well...did not upgrade...but measuring, I am looking for the same specs...Possibly 19'' Rims, but in the same config...9s in front 10s in back.
     
  3. 18-10s will fit front or rear. If you go 10.5 in the rear you may need to clear the bolt head or run a spacer. I run 18-10.5 front and rear with 305-30-18s front and rear. I space them out a little to clear my coilovers. 18 inch rims will give you a little better handling because of the shorter sidewall. You will get a little rougher ride. Dont go 19. 18 inch is much better as far as tire selection and price.
     
  4. Does this hold true for the 99 Cobras? Could one get a 17x10 or 18x10 wheel for the rear (using the buttonhead bolts) and squeeze a 315mm wide tire under there?
     
  5. Ask Uncle Meat. He should know. I remember a long time ago he mentioned something about getting a smooth IRS bolt to clear tires/wheels. Worse case scenario, your could get extended lugs and a wheel spacer.
