Whats the biggest tire size I can run with stock 2001 cobra wheels without rubbing? I was thinking maybe 305s or 315, but I need confirmation from someone that actually knows. (Please let me know front and rear biggest tire size)

On stock 2001 wheels? It's really less about rubbing and more about whats the max tire size for a 17x8 wheel.

I've seen 275/40/17 run on a 17x8. It fits, it has bulge, but IMHO theres too much sidewall flex allowing the tire to roll over in a hard turn.

I have 255/45/17 on mine, and I think that's as big as I would go on an 8" wide wheel
