Re: will they fit?

I would say they'd fit...the backspacing is different but the bolt pattern is the same.

I remember seeing S197's with 03 Cobra wheels and they fit well. My only concern would be the 10.5" rears.

Maybe Spector will chime in...he knows his wheel offsets and sh*t really well.

Re: will they fit?

the fronts sound like 17x9 and they will work on 05+ but the rears with a 3.15 sound like 10.5 inch and they will stick out to much in the rear of an 05+... the stock 17x9 03 cobra rims (6.11 backspaing so 9-6.11 = 2.89 inches stick out from rotor) I wouldnt go any more than that in the rear

Around 40mm-45mm offset in the rear seems to be where most rims are for 05+ that sit good (25.4mm = 1 inch) 1.77in or so

Re: will they fit?

you need to see if the frontspacing on the rear sticks out to much, if it does then there really isnt anything you can do. The front should be ok though~ just need to buy two more rims/tires for the back.
