Lowered measurements

My 01 cobra vert was lowered when I bought it. I'm looking at getting new tires and rims but I'm not sure how to tell (or if there is a way to tell) how far the precious owners lowered the car. I know it's been lowered and I'm worried about getting tires that won't fit under the car. Can anyone help me to figure out how low it is and then what size tires I can put on it without rubbing?

Re: Lowered measurements

well in most stangs you can run a 295 on the back lowered up to 1.5" without having it rub...a 305+ and you'd need to roll the fenders to be safe...any pics?

Ure fine still have like 1.5 inch gap so you can run a taller tire as well

Thanks for the help. It looks like I'm 1 1/2" lowered so that's good to know. Know how wide of a wheel is safe without a fender roll (staggered) and what size tire?

Re: Lowered measurements

Those are 98 cobra r wheels....so they are probably only 9" wide...so a 275 is gonna be max id run. It was the biggest i could fit on my old cobras

I have no idea. I assumed it was stock. It was on the car when I bought it.

Re: Lowered measurements

I am 26.0 inches from ground to fender edge in the front and 26.5 rear and I have no issues other than a slight rub in the front if I turn the wheel 100%~ but most have that issue with wider rims.

I have 275 front 295 rear, backspacing in the front is about 6 inches and the rear its the same (9 wide front 10 wide rear).

I have a low profile IRS bolt in the rear but I dont really need it.
