9" : 245-285
7": 215-255

245/50-17s are almost a perfect match to stock and you can run them on either.

9" advantage: can put more rubber on the road, fill the fenders more
7" advantage: less unprung weight, for better handling. can run cheaper tires if needed.


Personally, I am getting some 8" wide wheels, but I don't know of anyone making a cobra / TB-SVT wheel in our pattern 8" wide.

i've got the 7.5" SVT wheels (not made anymore) and the 245 45ZR17's work perfect. it's a pretty short sidewall, but in my opinion it looks way sportier than 255 50's.

Oh, so now my tires aren't sporty Dan Mr bling bling my car looked lifted before John helped me swap my springs? I have 255-50-17's on 7" wide rims and am very happy with them.

helped me swap them??? EHHHHHH wrong. You let me use a spring compressor...hardly helping me swap them. I am the one that did the R & R...that's where the blood sweat and tears come in baby!!!

Anyways, I think the 255 50's look really really good, don't get me wrong. They look good as in...drag strip good. I dig the lower profile "sporty" look. I think it makes the car look more...corner friendly.

Here is a picture of my car with 245 45's and the seccond one is johns with the 255 50's. some one else back me up here....





I dig the shorter side wall. Hey john, did you go to the car show/race this weekend?

uuuhhhhemmmm...I believe I was the one that did the first one. I sure as heck didn't sweat that much standing there watching you..ha ha ha...

Nah man...I didn't go...wasn't worth the $$$ for me to go right now. I am trying to buy a house, so money is at a premium at the moment.

Oh, and those tires handle VERY well IMO.
