    I am trying to figure out if these wheels will fit on my 93 Cobra. My front fenders are rolled but not the rear. Does anybody have pictures of their cars with these on them? I am putting 275/40/17 Proxes on the rear and 245/45/17 on front.

    What's the backspacing on them? If your talking about these, I've seen it done on more than one car:

    I would hunt around a bit, I've seen on Fox Cobra's, coupes, etc. At the very least, the rears would need the quad shocks removed. Up front my require a later year spindle.........both the aforementioned are pretty common when stepping into wheels like these.

    Yep. Quad shocks removed and no tailpipes. I was told to get a gt rotor for the fronts

    Ya, the hat has a different height. Keep digging around on the boards, see what you can find. Corral used to be heavy back in the day with traffic, I'd check there if you haven't already.

    Yep Ive checked there. I just havent seen any pictures yet of the 10th Anniversary 10" wheels on the 93. I bought them today so I hope they fit without too much modding

    Thanksbuddha93..... Im hoping that they end up fitting good. The only thing Im really worried about is the tire rubbing. I dont know anything about backspacing and offset. I know the factory wheels have an offset of +20mm and the wheels I bought are +25mm. That doesnt seem like much to me. I guess if all else fails, I might have to do some beating on the inner fender well in the rear . My front fenders are already rolled so I dont think I am too worried about the 17X9 fitting on the front.

    wheels are in and they fit perfect in the rear ( even enough space for a 315)
    I have ordered GT rotors for the front from LMR. They should bring the wheels in about an inch or so

    If it matters and anyone was interested,I just remembered I have a set of four of the Ford Racing 10th Anniversary 17x9 wheels new in boxes. Discontinued long ago, I bought these over a decade ago for a Fox project but ended up using something else.
