I'm seeing here and there different info.

I plan on ordering the cobra wheels tomerrow off ebay( Let me know if there is a cheaper way) The ones i'm looking at are 18x9 front and 18x10 rears.

So i guess i should be asking what is the widest rear rims i can fit on 18's or 17's. I want to run the 275 in the rear with 245 in front. Also offset i should be looking for?

unless youve done or are doing the mustang bolt pattern swap the wheels in the links wont fit.

Ok i see 5x4.25 And if i'm reading this right i should go 18x9's with 36mm offset correct!

yeah 36mm offset, and you might need a 3mm spacer for the fronts.

18x10's, the only one's you'll find in our bolt pattern that FIT are made by Boyd Coddington. $$$$$$

I am running 18x9s on the rear of my SC with 235/75 tires and a 36mm offset. The car is lowered with Eibach springs. When I first installed them, they rubbed the fender lip in the rear whenever the car suspension would compress. I added air bags to the springs and kept them inflatted to stiffen the rear suspension. No problems with rubbing now. I am thinking a ten inch wheel would be too wide unless the fender lips were rolled and even then if the tires stick out past the fenders, you are guaranteed to chew up your tires.

235-75s, wow for a 9 inch wheel, that seems kinda narrow to me.you should be able to go with atleast 255s or more. with the 75s, how much does that throw your speedo off?

I've got a set of the 18" x 9" Gun Metal Grey Cobra R's from Cudaz101 at The Custom Wheel Shop, not all of their inventory including these rims are listed at their website. Brad was very helpful and there's a lot of good information in the Gun Metal Grey thread. Last I heard, there was one set of these left.

I plan on running the 245/45/18's in the front and 275/40/18's in the back when I've saved enough money to buy the tires.

Edit: Holy thread ressurection, I just noticed the original post was October of last year.
