Saleen wheels

Hello, I picked these saleen wheels at a garage sale for $100. They are authentic I'm pretty sure. They have the mfg date stamped in the lip and the two raised lettering of the saleen markings. 18x9 and 18x10. I closely inspected for cracks and found nothing. They do have curb rash. Just wondering if its ok to blend them out and repowdercoat?

315's if I'm not mistaken would be the right size.

315s are almost too big for 10" wheels. 305 is better.

I ran a 315 on my 10' but I recommend a 305 for a 10' luckily the Pirelli I ran looked like a 305
Instead of a 315

I ran a 315 on a 17x9 OEM Cobra wheel and it Fit great!

I'm running a 295/35/18 right now on my 18x10 Fr500's .. Next set will be a 330/35/18 if I can find a pair. (:

Don't fear the tire !
