I've got a set of 17 x 10.5 Cobra wheels for the rear and also the stock set 17 x 9 for the front. Thinking about getting rid of them. I'm going to get some aftermarket rims and was wondering if anyone wants to throw some numbers at me for these?

The front two have the stock tires with 9,000 miles on them
The rears have Goodyear F1-D3 with less than 2,000 miles

Pictures of the rear 17 x 10.5 below, yes they are all chrome.

I live in Gastonia, NC will arrange to meet if the buyer is close, otherwise buyer pays shipping (prefer not to ship though)

I've been looking for some factory chrome wheel for mine. How much?

What did you think about the D3 and did the extra width help?

I noticed my stock rears are about down to the wear indiciators with just over 8k and that is with having babied them and I have been entertaining the idea of going with the wider 10.5 wheels.

I have no clue on numbers at this point as I haven't done any pricing.

Since you are in TN, I'll arrange to meet you half way to give them to you if you are serious about them! The back rims are pretty much brand new. I paid $400.00 for the back two rims by themselves and then $550.00 for the 2 tires!

I'm willing to let them go (all 4 with tires on them) for $1250 obo?

I loved the extra width! IMO, it helped out with traction and the tires didn't break loose as easily, but with these cars having so much power it's pretty easy to break any tire loose!

After I get rid of these wheels and tires I'm going to get some 18" wheels, but I"m still sticking with the 10.5's in the rear with some 315's

Jack, I'm not really sure about a price I was just throwing that out there, but if you are serious about them and are willing to meet me. I'll give you a better deal than that.
Email me after you talk with the boss!:)

I can pick them up from you no problem. However I can not commit to anything until I see how things fall into place at work this week (should know by midweek). So if you rather deal with Jack first just let me know if you sell them or not.

It was good meeting you in Jan. in Charlotte.

I'm not taking sides and want to be fair, but who ever can meet me and come up with the money can have them!

Also, on a side note, some people running the 10.5 in the rear on the 03/04 Cobra have had some rubbing issues (lowered cars) and I'm currently running mine with a Maximum Motorsports .25" spacer which will be included. No need to get new wheel studs with the .25" spacer either, just bolt on and drive it!

Thanks again,

The BOSS said no.:( We are finishing the basement and the money has to go for that right now. If RF Cobra does not take them, it will be about a month before i have the extra cash to buy them. Sorry but the house and wife comes first.

Jack, I know where you are coming from. We still have some remodeling to finish on the house and I need to start on the baby's room soon to get it done by the end of May. Too many things to spend $$ money on and there never seems to be enough of it to go around.

Yeah, I didn't spin the tires in the waterbox or anything! I didn't see the need and didn't want to risk breaking a halfshaft!;)

Um...I would like to take the rears off your hands..I don't need the fronts...

.25 spacer? Not hubcentric I take it..right? I just bought extra 12mm bolts to have shaved..and was thinking 3/8 inch LFP Hubcentric spacers. You did not have any issues with the studs breaking or anything?

Or I will trade you my 17x9 with cash for your 17x10.5...and I can tell you where you can post these and probably sell them quick...or did you already post them there? Trust me..hit www.svtperformance.com....and the will go quick..that is if I can't talk you into the trade!

I got the wheel spacers from MM, and I didn't have any issues with the studs breaking or anything like that.

I really don't prefer to trade as I'm going to get some aftermarket 18" wheels for all four corners!
