2000 Cobra R spacing probs

Anyone know of any spacing problems with real FFRP 2000 Cobra R rims on a 97 cobra?


93LX hatch, S-trim (2.95 and 8" pullies, boost unknown), DSS Forged 331, TFS, M-2300-K brakes, polished 99 Cobras, 3.73, 80mm MAF, 75mm TB, 42# inj, A1000, Holley Systemax II intake, MSD-6AL/BTM, Flows... blah, blah, blah... my head hurts...

Now I need a cage and tranny... Can a guy get a little help over here...

Got a reply for 275/40 tires. How far off will my speedometer be? Doing the math, they are a bit taller tire than the stock 245/45/17 tire. No spacing problems with 275/40...what about 275/35?

As you know, I'm sure, they have a 6" BS and are 9 1/2" wide. I see no problems at all and several corralers run them with no problems. However, they will "stick out 1/2" more than the 95 R 17X9's with 6" BS. Some don't mind this, and some think it sticks out a little much.
I think they would really look nice for the rear, and be OK for the front. Go to the tire of your choice web site for diameter comparison size and what tire size goes with what wheel size info.

I have the FRPP wheels on my 96 cobra. After I installed the gears (4.10:1) I had the speedo gear changed. After I installed the new wheels the speedo is still dead on. Hope this helps,
You can see my car at www.carinternet.com/myrare1.htm
Good luck

Thanks for all the help guys...Think I'm gonna go with 265/35 all the way around. Want to be able to rotate them as this is my daily driver. Any more pics that you know of anywhere...SN-95 with these rims?

Is that as close to stock 25.7" as you can get? How about 275X35X18?

Trying to not make the front wheels look they are sticking out too far. 1/2 inch is farther than my 95 Cobra Rs stuck out of my 93 with th eM-2300-K brake kit and I hated it. These rims are the cats corn hole though so I'll live with it. I know they won't be as tall as stock, but the guy I got the car from has 95 Cobra Rs with 255/40. Way short of stock. Just really goin for the look....thanks for the input...
