    well i got some wheels that are 18X9.5 all around.I was wondering with a cobra brake setup in the front will i have problems making these wheels fit.The tire size is 255 40 18 in the front.If anyone made them fit,what did you have to do.For the back i have 285 40 18.If you made them fit,what did you have to do.Will i have to longer studs or a wheel spacer?thank for any tips.

    thanks
    Jesse

    well the brakes wont effect anything, 255/40/18 is small for a 9.5" wheel you positive there 9.5" anyways those should fit alright depending on the offset.

    I bought some 255/40/18's on a 18x9 before ib the front and they would not turn full lock and rubbed 1/2 turned so I sold them. I had a Pro-Kit on it at the time though. I went back to a 255/35 and it's all good. The rears I have on 285/35 Nitto DR and they fit fine also. :thumb:

    255's solves it right there.

    they're 8" wide, or close to that.


    9.5" wide would be the 285-295 sizes.



    I'd like to see them on a sn95 also.
