They both would look awesome but I think you should go with the Cobra R's IMO

bullitts look better on 94-98 vs 99+ to me but not sure I would want them~

Re: chrome cobra r's or bullitts?

I nice set of chrome saleens (18" only) or GT4's (18") would look really good imo...I like those options better than the Cobra R's.

If you wanted to be different you could get a set of 03/04 cobra replicas...they come in 17x9's and 17x10.5" deep dish. Don't see too many of them on the 94-98's.

i was also thinkin bout maybe black chrome cobra r's. ive never seen a set of those on a stang and i think they would go good with my color. i do like the saleens but my dad is bein a jack *** and doesnt want me to get 18's cuz he says that there isnt enough tire to protect the rim and that ill **** them up, he is really gettin on my nerves. i mean its my money and my car so what the hell does it matter. i know how to drive im not a i dontt hit curbs. he is really stressin me out. its making me want to just say **** it and not buy new rims at all but i have to honestly cuz i need them and new tires. my tires are almost bald and one of my rims are dented cuz the previous owner. anyone have anything to help me convince him that 18's arent a bad idea?

Re: chrome cobra r's or bullitts?

There is plenty of tire on a 18 inch wheel,lol. You have nothing at all to worry about there. I would go with the bullits,saleens or the 03/04 corbas.

i know that there is plenty of tire but my dad doesnt think so. so he wont let me borrow the money for the wheels. he says if i want 18's that i have to wait untill i have the money saved up myself :/ and i wont wanna have to wait a month and a half more! can anyone else like vouch this maybe? and ill show him so that he will believe me? cuz this is the classic situation where he thinks i dont know what im talkin about because im 17, so maybe if some other people say it too he will change his mind?

Use the search on this forum,other forums and even google to pull up some info. Then show your dad. You can alway get a 18inch wheel with more rubber on it. You don't have to have a "rubber band" tire.

what size wheel would i need for it to have the same amount of sidewall as a 17 with 245/45/17s and would that even fit without rubbing?

use this calculator, a 245-45-17 is 25.7" high, the calculator will show you the height difference of the tires once you punch in the required digits, it will also tell you the speedometer reading between both.

I'm the wrong person to ask since I'm a S197 owner. Might want to ask Specv or some of the other guys with new edge cars. Just do some research and look around on some other forums also.

Re: chrome cobra r's or bullitts?

They do make 17x9 chrome saleens...you could get 17x9's all around and throw on some 3/4" or 1" wheel spacers in the rear to push the wheels out. Give the illusion of 10.5" rims.

If you get a wider tire like a 275/35-18 for the 18", there shouldn't be any rubbing issues. Generally you have the option to get a more narrow tire or a wider tire. You just need to get that across to your dad...

Re: chrome cobra r's or bullitts?

ok so i am no longer getting either of these. i put an ad on craigslist and im buying this dudes black bullitts. but i have a question. the rims are the same size but different size tires. 235/35-17 and 245/45-17 tires are like brand new on these wheels and idk exactly which ones to put on the front and which ones to put on the rear, but i thought the 245/45-17s should go on the rear.

Re: chrome cobra r's or bullitts?

Are they 17x8 or 17x9" rims?

235s are narrow for a 17x9 rim. You'd really have to be careful around curbs and such as there isn't much protection for the lip.
