...should I go with. I am going to buy some new wheels and tires in the next week. I have been checking some different ones out at tirerack.com.

What size should I get, and what size tires should I go with? I was thinking that if I got 17's I would want at least 17x8. How do 18's fit look and ride? Any input is welcome.

17x9s will fit your car because i just bought some 17x9 cobras and for the tire size i got 245/45/17s and they fit great and dont rub at all. i highly recomend these if you want your bird to look sporty. i get looks all the time since i got these wheels even older people in there 40s and 50s have to stop and take a look

I have Chrome Cobra R 17x9s with 245/45 in the front and 275/40 in the back.I got them from performancewheeloutlet.com I dont know the number but they were 1040 shipped to my door.They came with lugs,valve stems and center caps.I modded my center caps so they say SVT in red.I custom cut the letters out on a graphtech plotter we have at work.

I would love to have some new rims on my tbird. Owner before me put 15" american racing rims on it and didnt realy keep care of it. Its hard for me to spend $1000 on something that wont make the car any faster, haha. But boy do i want some Cobra R's.
