I use a regular GT 17 x 8 rim for a 99 to 04 car, but I also had to grind the lip off. I use a 26 x 11.50 M/T E/T street radial.I have Cobra R knock offs and I did have to take some material away so they would fit over the hub. About 2 or 3 mm on the inside by each lug hole. Very easy to do with a dremel
BTW - There will be a bunch of guys that tell you not to run these so this is your call. I have had no issues with these wheels. They are 17 x 9's and I am running a 28 x 10 inch drag slick
thanks guys i guess i will grab these rims. how big of a tire can i run. stock height for now but that might change
I have a brand new set of MT 275/40/17 Drag Radials for sale $300.00 plus shipping. I had them mounted didn't like the shorter tire, 10 miles on them to and from tire store. I bought the M&H's. The oringal price for both was $404.00 plus shipping. That's over a $100.00 saving. PM me if interested.
Be very careful in running 114.3 bolt circle on 115 hub. I am currently running a set of Cragar SS wheels with the 114.3 bolt circle on my SRT and CANNOT get them to balance properly at any speed over 70 MPH. Am running hubcentric rings also. Have gone so far as to have the wheels/tires balanced three different times by different shops and also put a new set of Nitto Invo's on it, all to no avail. Am just going to put the correct 115 mm wheel and eliminate the problem once and for all. I will be selling these wheels CHEAP very soon. Just run the correct bolt spacing to begin with and avoid all the potential problems. Just a word to the wise.Anyone have an opinion regarding the use of the 114.3 (i.e., Ford) bolt circle on our 115mm hubs? I always figured it was a bad idea.
I wish I could prove otherwise. It certainly would open up our wheel options.
FWIW, I have no problem with the idea of boring out the centers.
Thanks for your response. And not something that I would have considered (but will now.)Be very careful in running 114.3 bolt circle on 115 hub. I am currently running a set of Cragar SS wheels with the 114.3 bolt circle on my SRT and CANNOT get them to balance properly at any speed over 70 MPH...
GSO is running 10.3s on his Cobra R rims and then there's the LOADS of LX guys some of them in the 9s.Speedy, I think you, me and Sam are the only ones running these wheels that do not have concerns. I as well only use for the drag strip and have seen 119 mph on the Cobra R's. Everything happens so fast it is over in 11 seconds and I don't even get a chance to notice a vibration! :browsmiley:
