You should be fine. They might rub the wheel well a little. Is your car lowered?

No, they won't fit.You should just send them to me and I'll use them on my Ranger.


They should be ok. If the front tires rub a bit you can put some steering rack limiters on to keep them from rubbing, but you will lose a bit of turning radius.

Sorry, but that was "kind of" intentional.
I think you'll be ok with them.


P.S. Me too on the fire truck driving. Put in 20 years on the Fire Department & Rescue Squad.

Well, years ago I was in your place.
I did pretty good with everything except the propane tank fire training.
With all that heat and noise it was really hard to make my self get close enough to shut down the valve, when what I really wanted to do was run fast and far away.

Re: 01-03 cobra SVT rims on a fox?

Your going to have to run a spacer if its a 9'' wheel to have full turning radius. I work at discount tire and one of the purchases I was going to do was the 17x9 03 cobra wheel. After putting a 245-45-17 on it, I added a 1/8'' spacer and was good to go!

but I dont like spacers personally so I didnt buy...

Re: 01-03 cobra SVT rims on a fox?

Spacers vary in cost, I dont know if any of the site sponsors carry them but autozone or o'reillys should have them. When I priced mine into my build, they were just about 20-30 dollars

depending if you have quad shocks, buying the rears too might be a good idea so you dont have to take them off.
