Re: will these fit

the 10.5 rear generally (on all 10.5 aftermarket 03 cobra rims ive seen) stick in more so they should fit with at most a spacer and may be fine without. You MIGHT have to take off your flip your quad shock upside down. I know they fit on my car and GT's without a problem on 99+ (the backspacing if its to much is easily fixed with a spacer vs the other problem with it sticking out to much that you cant fix.

Figure out the back spacing and if its no more than 6.5~ (maybe 6.7) should be ok... but the axles on pre 99's are different and they stick in more I believe~ maybe someone can come in that knows that setup better than 99+ that I know.

Re: will these fit

If these are OEM rims, a 17x9 will not be any issues. I have put on this same version (OEM) on a '96 cobra with no problems, which would be the same as your GT. However, those are some pretty wide tires. 275 on the front might rub at full turn and 315 are the max for the rear. I think 275 on the front stick out a little too much (IMO) on the sn95. '95 Cobra Rs came stock with 17x9 and I beleive they put 255 on them. I had 275 in the back and 245 in the front, but in hindsight, I would have just gone with a set of 255 all the way around (I think OEM on those rims is 245/45/17?)

Re: will these fit

thanks for the input, i just wanted to ask because i really like them, but now that i price stuff out i can get cobra R style wheels with tires for a little bit more than those crobra wheels that need tires

i have 275/40-17s on my v6 and they dont rub on the front, but then again mine isnt lowered. but would it even matter that its lowered?

Re: will these fit

on the 94-98 SN95 cars, the rear axle is actually not as wide as the 99+ cars.

Re: will these fit

yup good point, its .75 inches a side shorter if I remember right, a spacer can fix this if needed.
