18/9-10 on my 89 GT

Hey guys,


I recently finished my build ,306, ford racing cam, TKO 600 5 speed, Paxton novi 1000 SC, dart 404 heads, strange 4 way suspension, cobra style breaks all around and 5 lug, (among a bunch of other smaller things). Now I am looking at trying to fit 18s on her. I have the 94 sn95 front and stock fox length rear. I am looking at the 03 cobra's or the saleen style wheel. I can't seem to find exact info on what back spacing, offset and tire size. I've seen a ton of information on this subject but, it seems no one has my set up. Help please!? Haha

someone else should pitch in but I wanted to say that your car looks awesome the way it sits!!!

just realized that the cobras are 4 lug but you now have the 5 lug

Ya that is a couple weeks after the build and before I started the 5 lug upgrade. I gotta say I truly enjoy this forum. Everyone seems really approachable and helpful. Thanks for the compliments. I am away with the military right now but, I have a new 2000 cobra hood that I need to paint and put on. Can't wait to get home and put the finishing touches on!

I've seen multiple pictures and threads that say if you get the right tire size and offset. Most of them are dealing with the longer rear axle problems so I haven't seen a perfect answer.
