01 cobra. They are 17x8 and factory size is 245/45-17. You can go up to a 275/40 for the rear but a 275 in the front would probably rub at full.lock.

45 is the hight of the tire. 255 is how wide the tire is. if your the type of person who believes in rotating tires, just get them all 255's all around. thats a more than safe setup
