Exclamation '06 Cobra Rims

I was wondering I am getting a set of 2006 Chrome Cobra Rims just like the ones on the 2006 Shelby Cobra the rims are aftermarket and I was wondering before I order them will they fit my 99 Stang or is the stud offset different?

Well, hard to say, but I would say it will fit. The new GT rims are 7.5X17, most cobras are 17x9. I have seen 95 Cobra R style rims advertised to fit from 94-2005. The new GTs come with a smaller and taller tire than the 99-04 did, its a 235X50 I think, Pirelli tire.

the offset of the 94 - 04 and 05+ wheels are differant so they wouldnt work all that well , spacers might be able to fix that though

unless their offset is farther out then spacers would just make it worse lol

Compare the numbers in the offset, if its something like 1/2 inch different its probably only because the 05 rims are not as wide by 1/2 inch.

wow, GTs come with a 7.5" tall wheel but 17" wide? no wonder everyone gets 17" cobra wheels. I bet it's hard to find 7.5" tires

sorry Rick, I had to. (I'm just that bored)
