Wheels on 2001 Cobra convertible
« on: November 19, 2018, 10:04:18 PM »
Hi all
Been awhile since I last posted but am after some advice about getting some new rims for my car a 2001 Cobra convertible.  I currently am running 18x8 on front and 18x9 on rear and wondered whether 18x10 would be alright for the rears or would it be better to go 18x8 all round as in the rims I want they donít do 18x9.  Tyres on rear are 265/35r18 but want to get new tyres as well am thinking of Michelin PS4
Can anyone steer me in the right direction
Thanks. Sally

What size are your current wheels, and how much room do you have on either side?

Hi Sally I have USA made Rovos Durbans 18 x 10 1/2" rear and 18 x 9" front. 285/40/18 and 245/35/18. Fits the large guards perfectly. I have attached the wheels sizes. Perfect if you can get the same dimensions on a Aussie rim. PM me with your email address and I will send some pics of them on my Cobra.

It states +23 on the 10 1/2" rear rims. Front +17 offset.
Nice and deep on the rears.
