Depends on the width of your rims, as they obvioisly aren't stock. I'm assuming your talking about tires on the rear, and if so pending on the offset too, most people can get some 275's on the back, but you most likely will have to flip the quad shocks and/or use spacers. I had 275's with flipped quads and spacers for a while, but depending on the brand of tire (the shape of the sidewall) they would very slightly rub on the fender. You can roll the fender to fix it, or remove the quads if you have aftermarket LCA's.

OR, you could tub it, and get some real wide slicks lol

You can run 255/45/17 just fine on those rims which is what came on the 94/95 Cobras stock. But putting anything bigger on an 8" wide rim is going to bulge out really bad and actually degrade performance vs helping you get traction. I would honestly just get some good stock size tires and go with those.
