Re: Will these rims fit?

i sold my OEM 03 *17x9* cobra rims to my friend with an 08 GT, fit fine. The issue is they stick out a BIT to much but not terrible~ they work.

If you have a tuner you should really consider running the factory size tire that the 03/04 cobra ran (275/40/17) as this will lower the height of the tire vs your stock setup... but will make the 17 look MUCH bigger. When you run the normal 17in tire needed for an 05+ GT the sidewall is HUGE and looks bad.

A lowered 05+ makes it look EVEN better... a tuner is needed to calibrate for the rotations per mile change~

Would a staggered setup stick out a lot on the back?
