Cudaz101-- Is there any way to get a set of wheels in a different offset? I am looking to get Cobra R's, black center 5X4.5 (114.3), 18X9 front with a 20mm offset. 18X10 rear with -19 offset (yes, negative 19). This is not going on a Bird, Cat, or Mark.

What is maintenance like on a polished finish? Am I going to have to clean them every time I drive the car? Are there special cleaning products you recommend?

That's up to you if you want to clean them every time you drive the car. I use mild soap and water on mine with a soft rag to remove the road grime and brake dust. It's not that big a deal.

Thanks. That's good to know. I can't decide on what style. I've been looking at 98 Cobra R, 03 Cobra and a 6 spoke type. I don't like the factory 5 blade "salad shooter" rims. They look like Pontiac hub caps to me! Anyway, the car had brand new tires on when I bought it, so I have time to decide and save up the $.

The short answer is No...I have not seen a Replica with a high reverse offset. Im not sure it can even be done with the cast tooling that is in place.

The best option in my opinion would be to go with a 2 or 3pc wheel in a similar style and build it to your needed specs.

A good set of rims, tires, mounting, balancing, and lugs will run you around $1,400 to $1,500

just got my 03 cobra's from brad, placed on my 95 mark lsc and Firestone tires charged me around $136 to mount,balance and placed my tires from another set of rims to the new 03 cobra's. ive already got the new lugs from the old set of tires. i would check them out when you decide to buy new rims, they seemed to be the most reasonable price out their.

regards,
ramon

Trunk Monkey, That's some serious $ for me, probably going to take me awhile. I check the parts for sale section of the forum too. Never know what's going to show up there.

bgck7, I'm pretty picky when it comes to mounting and balancing. I just got a tire replaced on my stock wheels. The kid who changed the tire at the last shop I went to didn't take the weight off and put a scratch almost the whole way around my factory rim while it was spinning on the tire machine. I'll have to check with my local Firestone.

Thanks guys, Sean.

So what do you think about the billet aluminum wheel adapters that keep the bolt pattern but space the wheel out? I need 1.5 inches to fill the wheel well, and to get the width the same as the front suspension.

I would not sell them nor would I run them on anything that I have regardless of what Im doing with the car. But thats just me. I made my best suggestion for your solution above.

Are you going to have any FR500s made up this year?
If you look back you will see that I built this wheel and it was kicked back from production because of quality/safety issues with the bolt pattern pocket area of the wheel. So this wheel simply cant be made in our bolt pattern unless they build a specific mold for our bolt pattern which is not going to happen. Pretty saddening really...But there are too many wheel styles out there that look just as good IMO.

Cheers
