7" cobra R

Im lookin for the 95 style. I want to go with a smaller tire up front like a 225/40-17 could i use a 7" or would an 8" rim work just as well. If so where can i find them?

Re: 7" cobra R

If you are trying to go for the whole skinnies up front look, do it right and get some 15x6 drag wheels. Otherwise, it's just gonna look stupid (IMO, i.e. the opinion of the entire collective conscious of the universe).

225s are going to ride like ****. I used to have 225s on all four 17 oem cobra rims and granted from the side they looked sweet and really low profile from the front the rims stuck out more then the tires and hit bumps hard. I actually ended up having one of my front rims bent from hitting bumps and stuff.

Re: 7" cobra R

^^ the width of the tires does not determine its sidewall, they are different units of measure.

Hmmm I dont have a clue about the measurement stuff. All I know is that the 225s I had were tiny.
