I have 245's right now in the front, and 285's in the ass. I was wondering if there is a big difference between 245's and 255's??? I dont know which size i should replace my front ones with.... :help2:

not much between 245 and 255's I dont even think it is half a inch, I would go ahead and get the 255's on the front. I have 265's on my 18's on my Cobra

I just went to the Fun Ford Weekend at Firebird Raceway in Phoenix. I saw lots and lots of Cobra's and I must say.... I like your better.... I mean, dont get me wrong, they are all pretty nice, specially those guys running low 11's but i figure if you cant do AT LEAST 12's in a cobra.... there may be issues....

oh yea, STOCK the 99's ( when they had the factory fix ) were solid mid to low 13 second cars. With bolt ons 12's is EASY, I ran a 7.90 in the eighth a few weeks ago, that equals around a 12.40 or so in the quarter and I have all the normal bolt-ons that every other 4.6 Coba has :) I'm looking for mid 7's come the first of next year when the tax man gives me my money back and I get my Stage 2 Procharger with the 3 core intercooler :dancing6: :dancing6:

When I said that I couldnt be called fast, I ment it more as the fact that a 96+ block can hold almost 1000 hp... I guess thats not your daily driver tho.... ::)

I have 255/40/17 up front and love them only problem is i found out too late that i had a alignment issue. Oopsy there goes 2 tires time to go get some more actually the 275/40/17 in the rear are gone thanks to the fiance doing brakestands. 15,000 miles for a set of tires gee you think they would be more considerate.
I was meaning my fiance you think she would be more considerate about abusing the tires! Ha
