Mid pipe question.

I am planning on buying some bbk x pipes from a buddy of mine. He had his on a manual. Would they work on a automatic as well?

The BBK x pipe will work on either.

Awesome. Thanks!

Another question. I just ordered some wheels for my car. I jumped on that special they had on AM for the 10th anniversary cobra wheels and got them 18x10. What is the widest tire size i can possibly go with these wheels?

A 315 is usually the widest that will fit from what I have seen. I have seen some 335s but that may rub. I would go with the 315, you may need to reverse your quad shock though so it doesn't rub.

Actually a 275 is a great size. I have 275 on my 17x10s.

That's what I currently have. I want to go the widest I possibly can without having to do any modifications.

How about the front? Would you happen to know what is the widest i can go without rubbing? I currently have 255s in the front.

Thanks again for your help.

Wider does not always equal better. You want a slight bulge or straight up and down. For a 94-04 with 18x9/18x10, a 255 or 265 up front and a 285 on the back is about perfect. Some brands also run fat and narrow too. Example, I replaced a nitto 315 with a bfg 275 and the bfg was just a hair narrower. A bfg comp 2 275/40/18 fits perfect on a 18x10 rim and gives a little more sidewall to fill up the wheel well better and not be as rough for daily driving. The same brand tire will fit great on a 18x9 with a 255/40/18 or if you got an 18x8(that size works better with a 94-98 car if you have one) then a 235/45/18 is perfect.

265 like Scotty said. I have 255s on the front with 17x9 wheels and they stick out a hair, I would do the 255 to keep them close to flush with the flair of the fender. The BFGs that Scotty mentioned is what I would go with if I was going to go with a 18" staggered set up.

I have an 02. I think i might consider the 285s in the rear. So I can go 285/40/18 in the back even if my car is lowered? I want the tire to reach right at the fender. In the front, i might just stay at 255 to be safe. I just want the best look for my car as possible. My car isn't a daily, i rarely drive it, im trying to restore it and make it look so nice.

Go with the bfg 275/40/18 bfgs if you have 18x10s. They are the right price too. I'll post pics when I get upstairs on my desktop interwebs.

That is a 18x8/18x10 setup but I would go 18x9 up front on a New Edge since the fenders flare out.







That car is lowered 1.5" all around btw. Also, the 275/40/18 is about 1" taller than stock so obviously will need a speedcal or if you are running a tune, get the tune reburnt for the taller tires.


As you can see, the 275/40/18 BFG Sport Comp 2s run pretty big. A 275/40/18 and a 255/40/18 setup would be good for what you are wanting to do and give the car a nice aggressive rake without being too tall up front and rubbing.


Here is a BBK mid pipe btw.





That is a 3650 manual trans but there is plenty of room for an auto too. The 3650 is actually a pretty fat trans itself.

That actually looks really good! I think i have my mind set.

Love the way your stang looks as well!

I can get the BFGs for $176.00. Is that good or bad?

Well i will be definitely buy those bbk pipes and have them installed this weekend hopefully.

Holy **** they went up like $50 per tire wow... That's a good price especially if its local. Is that mounted and everything or just the tire?

Just the tires. I have connections though. I used to own a small tire business. I'm still really cool with the heads of the distribution company, that's the deal they're giving me. After viewing the link you posted, I'm getting an okay deal lol.
