so...i have a "?" for the near future:

right now I have 16" oem sport rims, and would like to get 17" or 18" cobra style wheels that would fit Tbird DIRECTLY (same lug pattern, and everything else).
Where do you get those wheels?
I only want them in "matte" finish, and NOT GLOSSY/polished/chrome look.

I'm NOT planning to lower the car. in that case which is better 17" or 18"? or does it not matter?
also: I plan to run at least a 245 size tire with whatever wheels i get. is that a good size?
what's the max sidewall size (right now it's 60) of tires that can be had with 17" and 18" wheels withOUT rubbing? (I want the fender/tire gap to be as small as possible)

If not Cobra, what are some other straight 5-spoke rims that can be gotten with the same lug spacing?


If you guys can answer some of those "?"s, I would be very thankful.
Thanks.

Have you checked with Brad - Cudaz101? He has the Custom Wheel Shop banner at the top of the page.

I will definitely contact Brad when I'm ready to do this...
I hope he has some non-chrome ones...most of the Tbird wheels seem to be in chrome finish.
I guess I'm one of the few who prefers a non-shiny/non-chrome finish :)

I can testify that those gunmetal cobra R wheels look awesome. I don't know for sure if Brad has the cobra R in silver, I got the Saleen Speedstar in silver, and they look great. Look in the vid/img forum for my thread for some pics
