    I cannot find a pic of these 99-01 Cobra wheels on an SN to save my life.

    I've finally stumped google.

    I have a potential trade in the works for a set of OEM 99-01 cobra wheels.
    Please post a pic of them on an SN if you run them.

    PREFERABLY A CRYSTAL WHITE CAR.

    If I can remember correctly they may have come powder coated white from the factory...
    Can anyone confirm this?
    I'd love a white set on my white 98.

    These wheels if I'm wrong on my year.

    The ones I may be getting are polished aluminum. I'm really hoping the guy goes through with the trade. Especially since obviously not many people have them on SN95s. If they're in good shape I'll just polish them up but if they're scratched I'm gonna powder coat either white, anthracite, or matte black.

    White cobra r wheels with some bright red calipers is gorgeous. So I'm thinking the same on these.

    I'm pretty sure the wheels on my white cobra are OEM. Check out the link in my signature for the build thread. I have some photos of the car on the first page of the thread when I got it.

    WHATS REALLY FUNNY IS.... You're car is the only sn95 on the entire Internet I found with those wheels. LMFAO and here you are.
    I swear it was your sig pic or something.

    Post a side shot for me if you can.

    How do they sit in the rear wheel well? Need a spacer or are they offset?

    Nah. Yours are the newer style. More square edged and where the lugs go is deep set. The ones I'm lookin for are 99-00 or 01 I think.

    Looks like the rears could be spaced out an inch. I trust spacers installed with a torque wrench.

    We'll I ended up not getting them because like most things on Craigslist they looked better in the pics. Even had some nice nitto tires in the pics and I meet this guy and the wheels are rattle canned silver with 4 different tire brands and 3 different sizes. I walked around his piece of junk SN once didn't say a word then hopped in my car and rolled out. It was like a 45 min drive. Some people amaze me with the shit they do to their cars. I can't even stand having loose change in my cup holders.

    Man this car looks GREAT with them. I was very close to buying a yellow GTS before I found my 98. Always liked the yellow.
