Re: 03 oem cobra rims help

I would always recommend an alignment. And are you just having problem at full lock or what? It sounds as if your drop is a little far for the wheels.

O...hm...dunno man. I dunno if I'd trust spacers on the front, but we'll see what other people say. I'm not all that knowledgeable about spacers.

Re: 03 oem cobra rims help

Have a question for you....if you're dropped that much do you have c/c plates?

Re: 03 oem cobra rims help

also if these are rubbing your swaybar how wide are your tires up front ? you may have to go a smaller size if you went too wide

Re: 03 oem cobra rims help

hm well i know of many people who run 275 upfront including a friend of mine who had 99 cobra wheels with 275 upfront with no rubbing problems, but of course he was riding on on stock suspension.That width could be an issue with the drop you have but i dont want to call it definite.

Re: 03 oem cobra rims help

you definatly beyond any doubt need to run a 275/40/17 tire on a 17 by 9 inch rim (which are what oem 03 cobra rims are)

you wont have major issues, im droped 1.2 inches in the front and I have no issues, if you are turning your wheel that much you dont need to do that anyway (full lock and hold it) so itsnot a big deal.
