I've seen a vid of a nice T-Bird (think 96/7) running crome 2003/4 Cobra rims. It looked real slick.

Are these just a bolt on, or do the hubs need changing.

Help!!!!!!!! ;)

Chances are your gonna have to do a hub swap unless they're drilled to 5x4.25 (5x108).

I think there is a Tech article on it in that section.

I am guessing that that is aimed at me. No clearance issues on the inside but the rear tires do rub on the lip of the wheel well. The rears were 275-40-17 and the fronts were 255-45-17. You have to remember that stock 03/04 Cobra wheels have a +26mm offset which is about 10mm less than is ideal for our cars so that is part of the problem. I am replacing them with 18x9's with a 36mm offset and I think I will have room for 275's up front but may need to add some 3mm spacers if they don't.
