    I'm looking to run 18x10 all the way around my 1998 Cobra but I'm not sure what offsets I should be looking at to clear the suspension and everything. I know the fenders will have to be rolled and pulled so that's not an issue. For example would 18x10 +20 work?

    On my 96 Cobra (stock control arms) I ran an 18x9.5 with 20 offset 275/35 NT01 and rubbed the control arm with the rim, sway bar (Steeda in stock location) and inner fender liner with the tire.

    Running 17x10 with +18mm offset, I didn't rub any suspension pieces at all. I don't have fender liners, so I can't say if it rubs those. I know, not an 18 inch wheel, but still applies because of the overall tire size.

    +20 on an 18x10 will be pushing it pretty close up front. I would look for something closer to the 18x10 +10/15 range

    Yeah I saw that the Enkei RPF1 is available in 18x10.5 +15 but that would probably require some serious fender work which I'm not opposed to doing down the road. Right now I just want to fit as much as I can without major modification to the front fenders. I just picked up staggered matte back FR500's and while I do like them more than the Saleen reps that came on the car they still aren't really what I'm looking for.

    Lol, I just bought those 18x10.5 RPF1s to go with my 4 sets of 18x10 SVE drifts that are different shades of black. I will be running the Paul Brown/Tiger Racing front fenders though.

    Oh damn I definitely want to see how that turns out. I don't think I've seen the tiger racing flares.
