rims

http://www.mrbodykit.com/wheels/imag...190c_large.jpg

Are these 03/04 cobra rims?

Will 245 45 r17's fit on these?

Will I regret not getting 18's?

Re: rims

those are like 03/04 cobra rims from the pic posted. Those in 17s look fine no issues, just look at stock 03/04 cobra pics. They make those in 18s (AFS makes them and I would personally go through them for the 17s or 18s)

Re: rims

Like spector said they are reproduction 03/04 cobra rims. 245's will fit but they will not offer any lip protection as they will be stretched out to fit the 9" rim (assuming it is a 17x9" rim). If they are 17x8, they 245 will fit fine. If they are 9", then you want 275 or at least 265 to avoid that "stretched to fit the rim" look.

Re: rims

I am selling my rims. Will need tires. Just regular nicks and wear. The inside of the rear wheels paint is chipping (but that is inside of the tire)

I was thinking about getting a set of stock bullitts when the black bullitts aren't on. I'm getting sick of those damn 16x7.75" stock rims...they make the car look like a ****in barbie doll mustang (sorry to anyone who currently has those rims on their v6, lol.)

Yah, there are times I wish I would've went with 18's, but I had to have that extra .5" in the rear.

Re: rims

Keep in mind you will be paying a "tire tax" for the 18s as well....depending on brand and model, you could be looking at up to $100 more per tire for 18s.

Re: rims

18's look horrible in the 03/04 style Cobra Wheels. I'm not a fan of 18's on anything 2004 and older.
