Yea I was wanting to go with 18's but they dont make the 03/04 cobra rims in 18's. Plus your looking at about 160+ bucks for new tires and right now I have two free 17's with good tread.

lower it enough and 17s will look fine. any other pics of D's truck? i dont think i've ever seen it or how low it sits.

and i think you'll feel it in the seat of your pants when you go to a smaller wheel/tire combo lol.

Mustang wheels are so played out, get those kmc nova's ***. If you insist on being a homo and running mustang wheels atleast get mach 1's since not as many people have them.

I dont know what size he is running. For the rear I am doing a spring under conversion to drop it low. I will post what size tires I am running later today. The main thing holding me back right now is money and lack of brackets I am going to talk to a few friends today to see if they can make me some.

You should swap in a expo 8.8. Discs in the rear and it will net you like a 5" drop when you just bolt it straight up.

17"s are fine. I run 235/55R17s on mine, and it works pretty good. And deff do the Expo axle, you won't be sorry!
