I'm using the RPF1 in a 17x9.5 with 275/40-17 and they are great. 16 lbs each and tons of clearance for my Cobra R brakes. I swear I can feel the difference in acceleration going from a 25 lb wheel to these and the suspension feels better too.

what offset are you using is your car a sn95 thats where i was confused if it would work with no spacers
I have no idea what the offset is. The guys at Discount Tire ordered them for me. In my sig you see that the car is a 2003 mach1.

On the Tire Rack website the 17x9.5 RPF1 for a 2003 Cobra shows a 18mm offset.

I can tell you that I've got about 1/2" of clearance between the spoke and the caliper.

Thanks I found some 17x9.5" 18mm offset on craiglist and they fit on my 95gt with 00r 13" brembos very good. They have the sbc coating. Thanks for your help!
I think you will find them to be a great upgrade.

Running RPF1 17x10 with a 275 tire on it. Fits pretty good, super light, pretty affordable. I do hear their are soft though. Having said that, mine have been fine so far.
