I dont like the tires and rims on my 01 cobra, I just bought it and it has 205 50 r17 on it. It also is missing all four wheel caps. I cannot find replacement ones anywhere and not sure if I should just buy new rims or where to find these caps. Also will 18 in rims fit on my car? Thanks for the input!

Yeah, 18's will fit. 205's, really? That's sad. You could get a set of 18's and a much wider tire. Have you looked at the wheels American Muscle has to offer? What do you like?

Thank you guys for the quick response! I will post a photo today and i was wondering if cobra rims from newer models like shelby will fit. I use to have an 08 shelby and loved the wheels. Been looking on.clist but I cant find much without knowing what will fit. Any ideas where I could get the wheel caps?

I was wondering if the wheels from the 2013 will fit or what you think they will look good? Or should I try to find some actual Cobra rims instead? If I keep my 17 in rims how big of tire can I go and still look and drive good? Thanks

it depends what wheels u have right now? if theyre stock gt wheels they usually can run a 245- 275 wide tires. try to post up a pic. also how much money do u have to spend on new wheels on tires?

Drive will be fine. Don't go over 18 they look bad. As wide 10.5 but most 18s are 10inch wide. 17s offer 10.5?

I actually found some replacement caps so I will be keeping the 01 rims. They are 17 in chome stock cobra wheels. Someone stole the center caps and now i know why lol. Its almost 300 to replace the four of them!! I also dont have a grill in this car it just has the cobra in the front. where and how do I find a grill to put on it? I want to keep the cobra snake and wondering why there isnt a grill in the first place. Is it normal? Pics to follow soon

Just go all 255 so you can rotate them
