View Full Version : rear tyre sizes

01-16-2006, 11:25 AM
need help regarding rear tyre sizes, I just purchased new 18" wheels for the 03 cobra and I've hear a million different opinions regarding tyre sizes.

I'm comfortable with the front suggested sizes being 275/35/18 for a 18x9 wheel

rears are suggested a 295/35/18 for an 18x10.5, has anyone got picks or suggestions as I would like to place a Nitto drag tyre which come in a 315/35/18 for the rear.

Any help would be appreciated

wow, the 295's really fill it, thanks for the pic's, that car looks tough

i'm assuming no clearance issues with that

no clearance with the 10" rim...we had to do the half shave from IRS bolt on the 11" rims ;) .

Sorry to but in; however, just had to say that those tires look awesome. I cant wait to get mine on. I'm going 17x10.5 with the 315/35's Nittos. :thumbsup: Wish the damn snow would melt so I could get the car out.

thanks...i wouldnt go any bigger than 18's on these cars, especially with the drop I have now. I need to roll the fenders a bit b/c at full speed it'll rub just slightly if i hit a good dip in the road. if you're looking at drag radials, i'd strongly consider the BFG's over the Nitto's :cool:

I use villagephotos.com to host my pics. You have to upload them to their site, then when posting here, click the "pic" icon next the # and envelope in the reply box. then insert the URL and voila :D

Here's an example:
Try pasting this website URL into the "pic" icon on the reply page, then post the reply, if it pops up, then you figured it out
