New rims tomororow!!

I have some cobra Rs that I'm trading tomororow for some staggered FR 500s and just wanted to let everyone know and see what you think

Mine tires right now are 265 and the new ones are 315 in the rear and 275 in front

Re: New rims tomororow!!

Very nice...both sets of wheels look good on your car, so it's a win win,

I also see the rear FR's have DR's...sweet

How will my car handle different with a wider rear end??

And will these tires do good in the road in all conditions?

Looks good bro! The drs on the rear are not good in wet at all. Try to drive those only when it's dry. With wider front tires you may experience a little understeer but not too much.

I have the same setup on my 10th Anni cobras...275/40/17 (front) nitto 555 and 315/35/17 (rear) nitto 555r (drag radial) in rear...

You will do fine in dry and rain as long as you are not trying to be superman and fly home. We had a absolute thunderstorm the other day and it was raining like hell outside and I drove 30 miles home on my dr's at 50mph to ensure I didn't loose control. Just don't be stupid and you will be fine.
