    I have a 94 cobra I want to run weld pro stars. 15/10 rear wheels with 325/50/15 M/T drag radials. Has anyone run this setup? Also I want to run 3.5 wheels on the front. What all is need to do to fit these/spacer? :dunno:

    I'm betting you have to minitub the rear to fit those tires. Not sure about the wheel/brake clearance.

    a 325 is overkill man, get a 315 or even a 275 on an 8in rim and u will hook like nobodys business

    i've seen 335/17s on a mach with zero clearance issues.
    you will need a 1/2" spacer to clear the calipers out back
    if you plan on running 15s up front, you need a 3/4" spacer.

    if you have a problem fitting the 325s, flip the quadshock upside down or just delete them all together.

    It's the height + width combined. 325/50 is a huge tire. I think like 28-29".

    my 295/35s are 28"

    plus, while it would be a 50 series tire, its on a 15" wheel.

    ok to slap skinnies on a cobra you will have to get a 1" spacer and also do some grinding on your caliper so the rim won't hit. Its really not worth it. A cheap and easy fix is to go get calipers,brake lines, rotors, and pads from an auto parts store for a GT and the fats and skinnies are easy from there.
    The only other option is to get bogarts this way you ain't got to do anything but throw them on. no modding required.

    I run skinnies on the front, one inch spacer, no grinding on my cobra brakes. You may want to change your studs to three inches..not much thread to cath with the one inch spacer. Just a heads up.

    julian, you don't use hub centric spacers? they have studs on them already
