I'm putting new rims and tires on my 97 cobra soon. I'm looking at 275/35 Zr 18's and I was wondering if anyone had that size on there car. I want to know if there is any problem with rubbing in the wheel well.
Thanks for any help!

Most people that run the 18 inch rims go with 285/35's on the rear, and not sure what they put on the front. That's the size of the 2000 cobra R tires I believe. I haven't heard of anyone having problems with these tires, but since I've got 17's on mine, I haven't looked into this very much.

I think the 2000 R's came with 265s, you should be able to look it up at tirerack.com. I think most people put 275s on the 18s if they want to rotate the tires. I can't remember if the 265s, 275s, and 285s are 35 series or 40 (I'm sure the 285 is a 35) but search tirerack and you'll find it.

If anyone has a tire question, just ask me:thumbsup:

I'm running 275/35-18 Mich. Pilot Sport A/S's and I love them. Best on the market.
