Wheel/DR's Size and Backspacing


Have a 96 cobra. I'm looking at greg weld racelite series 92 star and will also need drag radials. I'm thinking either 15 x 8's or 10's at rear and not sure about front. Here's their page... www gregweld com/images/92-Star-Spec.pdf (I can't post Url's so just add the periods where needed)

Can someone please help me out with the best wheel/tire size and backspacing for a streetable car? Thanks!


96 Cobra Coupe

-Fully built motor, TKO trans, Auburn Posi, 4:10's, Full Bassani exhaust, suspension...lots of mods.

I don't have any experience with the Greg Welds but usually with 15s you have to run a spacer up front and do some grinding on the back brakes to make them clear the Cobra setup.

'00 Atlantic Blue GT - '03 Cobra swap, TKO600, full MM suspension
'01 Corvette - D1 blown stroker
'85 Mustang GT - bone stock except exhaust
