Black Deep Dish 2003 Cobra Style Wheel
The wheels look great on my Black 1999 Cobra Convertible, however, they were not just a bolt on. On the rear, my axle stubs hit the center caps knocking them out when I tried to install the wheels. The stubs had to be shortened 1/4", then the wheels fit fine. The only thing I don't like about the wheels is that the front wheels 17x9 are offset more to the outside than the rear wheels 17x10.5 about 1/4", I know that's how it was with the stock wheels, I was hoping the 10.5 rims would get the tires out as much as the fronts. I have 285/40-17 Tires on front & rear. I had these on 9" rims before with a 1" rear spacer & front & rear were the same, so it appears the 10.5" wheels could use more offset to the outside.
