    I just ordered me a set of 17X9 rims. I bought brand new 245/45's right before I bought my 95 Cobra's. They work, but they didn't look good! On HorsePower TV they put a set of 17X9 on the Scarlet Stallion, I think it was. They chose 255/45-17 for it. On American Muscle, where I bought the rims, they say 275/45-17. What do y'all have on yours? Thanks and see ya!!

    Yeah, I really wanted the BF Goodrich KDW NT’s!!  I just got back from Discount Tire and they do not have them in a 17!  I checked and they do not sale the Cobra 03 in 18’s!!  I guess I will change on my tire choice!!  And 275/??, too?  So, give me a 275/ so I can look ‘em up!  Thanks!!

    As of right this second, I am just going back with the KDW's!!  I have had BFG on my last 4 rides.  They have never done me wrong!!  Thanks!!

    And I think they are 275/40-17 you meant!!

    the recommended tire size is 285/35/18..but i have 275/40/18 and they are crazy skinny, and throw off my odometer because they are 40 series. next time i will be getting 295 for sure.
