Re: 18X9/10

i think you can go as big as a 305 on the 10" wide in the back. for the fronts a 275.

I think so too, I'm pretty sure people are running 315's on the back of the 03/04 Cobra's.

Re: 18X9/10

315's might be kinda big on a 10"... they'll work fine, but the right fit is 295/35/18

18x9's you'll want a 275/35/18

Re: 18X9/10

They'll fit that way...but the wheel will be sticking further out than the tire. It looks bad IMO, and you run a higher chance of curbing them. I have 275/35-18's on my 18x9's and they're still a touch too narrow for my tastes.

Re: 18X9/10

a 275 on my 18x9.5 wheel is dead even with the wheel edge. Some tires run wide and some skinny, but a 265 will look bad on a 10". Get at least a 295, sure it's more money, but it is worth it. 245's are the width for an 8" wheel, so an entire inch larger wheel, that is not nearly wide enough. Don't go all out on wheels and then halfass the tires, you will regret it if you do. Good luck and lets see some pics when u get them

Re: 18X9/10

On a 9" wheel, I'd say from a 265 to a 285 is an acceptable range. For a 10" wheel, you can get away with a 295 to a 315.

I've also had 255s on a 9" wheel, but they were too narrow for my tastes. On a Fox though, that's something you just kinda have to live with on the front with 17x9s.

Re: 18X9/10

295/35/18's -> Tire Products - Discount Tire Direct

305/35/18's -> Tire Products - Discount Tire Direct

295/30/18's -> Tire Products - Discount Tire Direct

295/40/18's -> Tire Products - Discount Tire Direct

Nittos are great tires. They have good tread life (in street radials, not Drag Radials) and good wet and dry traction. Their drag radials are also good for longevity, but they provide less traction than say a BFG or Mickey Tompson...which neither have great longevity.

not sure why Nitto's don't appear in my links above..their search must suck. Anyhow, these would probably be your best bet in 295 size -> Tire Details - Discount Tire Direct

Re: 18X9/10

that link doesnt bring me to a tire.

Here's the bottom line: You've gotta pay to play. Dont cheap out on things like tires. Buy the right size and be done with it, you'll regret it if you dont.

Re: 18X9/10

265 would be ok. I'd go with 275 if possible if it is not too much of a price jump, but 265 will be about even with the rim.

Re: 18X9/10

as wide as the rim. Most prefer a little wider to protect against curb rash, but it is fine. Mine are even.
