    I mounted my new Weld S71 rims yesterday and everything fit. I may have to make adjustments to the rear quad shock when the tire is mounted. Anyone else have to do this?

    Im running a 10.5 wheel with a 315 tire. Im a little lower on Eibach sportline and 1/4" spacers. I rub a tiny bit over really big bumps that sneak up on me. Doesn't happen often though

    10.5" Cobra R's with 315/35-17 Hoosier drag radials. I use a small MM spacer, 3" ARP studs, MM torque arm/springs, panhard bar, adj. lower control arms, adj. anti-roll bar, and no quad shocks. Fenders are rolled. No rubbing.

    As mentioned above, you can flip the quad shock around. You could also add a spacer, if you have enough thread space on the studs.

    When I owned 1995 Cobra R #108 I installed a 10.5" Cobra R wheel on the rear with a 285 tire to keep the original look of the 95R, but add a little bit of rubber on the rear.

    Shown below are reproduction 1995 Cobra R wheels front and rear, 9" front and 10.5" rear. At a glance, you would never notice the upsize in rear tire width from 255 to 285.

    My goal was to keep it looking "as it came from Ford", but also add a little more rim width and tire rubber on the rear.........

    I'm currently running 9 inch wide rims, but 285/35/18's up front, which makes for about 11 inches of width.

    Because of stupid covid, couldn't find any normal sized Nitto's to match my DR's so I went with what they had. It works, looks a little off, but it works and doesn't rub.

    ive run 275s up front on 9 or 9.5s for a while. 285s should have a bit of bulge there.
    I have run 295s too but that was on 17s.

    Plan to run 275s again but up the rim width a good amount to take advantage of the full tire

    You running springs or coils? And what year is your car?

    I plan on running 10.5s up front. I know they fit new edges without fender flares. I may need them(flares) on the 96 but may get away with cranking out the negative camber for a bit to tuck the tops before i get flares. It is also the perfect size for 275s to maximize the contact patch, granted that varies slightly tire to tire.

    With how little I usually drive the car, they'll probably crack and dry rot on me before the tread gets too low. 18k on it now, barely put 800 miles on it since I bought it in 19. Love black when it's clean but man it's a PITA to keep it clean, plus I don't usually like driving it anywhere I can't keep a constant eye on it.
