295's on a termi question

Got my new wheels and tires on the way and I'm just wanting to make sure I'll be ok on the IRS bolt. 18x10 wheels with 295/35-18 tires and a 5/16 spacer. If i'm gonna need the low-pro bolt I need to know now lol. I might just run to a hardware store and get grade 8 or 10 bolts instead of ordering them though.

Re: 295's on a termi question

I would put in a short head bolt just to be safe. You never really know until you test fit.. you may not need a spacer and you may. Its a try and see type thing. It can also vary side to side so dont assume if one is right the other is as well. You can just take your bolt out and chop the head off it about half way as well. I know when I do springs im going to replace this bolt for sure.

A 295 on a 10 wide with the spacing of the fr500 should fit perfect with no adjustments on most 03/04 cobras so dont worry to much about it. It is usually an issue with 17 inch with 10.5 inch wide rims like the 03 cobra style.

Well, like I say, I have these spacers off the white car, so we'll just see how it does.

Just wanted to make sure I was thinking in the right direction more than anything.

Re: 295's on a termi question

A 295 will be fine. It might come close if it is a BFG/Mickey Thompson type tire, but you will be fine. Most 315's require the lower profile bolt...and some 305's as well....but everything depends on the actual brand and how they measure the size of the tire.

If it is going to rub, it will only be when all the weight is off the rear wheel anyhow...so just don't be taking any jumps and you will be fine.

Worst case, order them and put them in...they are only about $15 I believe, so might as well get it out of the way and run 315's later.

Yea. I need 315s and plan to get them one day so I am going to do the bolt swap (might do the front IRS bolt at the tq box as well to ensure its 14mm vs 12mm).

I'm doing mine once I get the full bushing set for the rear. I sheered off the tab on the backing nut on the passenger side, so I will wait and do mine when I need to drop the IRS completely. Hopefully after the first of the year...if things go well. Gonna hopefully get the CC plates for the front as well so I can get my damn alignment right....

Re: 295's on a termi question

Hey rob, when you do it give me a call. I've now officially pulled the entire suspension from all the new edge setups. That IRS gets tricky unless you have a good tranny jack...or in my case a forklift.

Re: 295's on a termi question

I have the Low profile bolts on mine and I have a 1/8" or more clearance on both sides without the spacers. I bought some RR 3/8 spacers but don't need them with these tires. I am running Falken Azenis RT-615 tires. 315's mounted on a 10.5" wide wheels on the back.
