1999 Cobra replacment Tires

I am the original owner of a 1999 cobra convertible, three way black, with 5,200 original miles. I just got a set of new Ford Racing Cobra R chrome wheels and want to have them put on new tires. The original factory tires on the car are 245 45 and I would like to put 275 40 tires on the new 9 in rims. Can I go with that size? Also, does any one know if the BF Goodrich g-Force Super Sport are good replcement tires? Appreciate any advice

275 40 will be fine, I haven't had any experience with those tires though

Re: 1999 Cobra replacment Tires

g-force sport is a good tire, i would just settle with that than the super sport. what size rim? 17/18? the wear rating on the tire is 340aa which is still good compared to the super sport 400aa. it will still last a good time. 275/40 is the perfect size for a 9" wide rim.

I have a 99 Cobra and I use the BF Goodrich G-Force Sport. I have used both the super sport and the sport and I didn't notice a difference. They lasted about the same amount of time.
