Cobra Rim help

Well I just bought myself some 17" silver Cobras with tires for $400. One rim is bent but balance-able. I was super excited till I went to bolt them onto the front. Alas the darn things dont fit over the hubs . I have my new edge valence ready to go and everything. What in gods name do I need to do to get these suckers to fit?

As stated above you will need to run a wheel spacer or you could get the wheels honed out! to clear your hubs

how big are they, are they OE ford wheels or aftermarket? usually a 5/16 spacer is needed to run them, sometimes even a 7/16 spacer is needed like I did for my old wheels.

Are you talking about spacers or adapters? And yes, they are OEM 2000 cobra rims. Ive tried the spacers that slide over the lugs but once I put the rim on it fit fine, but the lugs didnt come far enough out :(

When I had mine on I put some ARP 3" wheel studs on there, you might look into those or see if Extended thread lug nuts will give you enough bite

Those studs are probably what I need. How would I go about changing them? And is there a local store, ie autozone, that sells them? And I tried the extended nuts and I only got about a turn and a half. I really want these on, but Im not going to sacrifice my safety for it, lol
