the Cobra is getting upgraded to 315/35/18 proxes r888 and the 295s I have on it now are in really good shape so thought I would buy a set of wheels and put them on my 97 cougar 30th. I love the look of the bullets but Custom wheel shop only has them in 18x9. I have done some searches but cant find too many people running 295s just a lot of 275s. My question is will they fit without rubbing? does anyone have pics of 295s on there mn12s? I also have 275s on the front of the cobra and going to buy new fronts so if not I can use them but was hoping I could just buy wheels for the cougar and swap the tires over from the cobra?
I've been running 285/40/17s on 9" wide wheels for several years. This combination required rolling the rear fender lips, otherwise has worked OK. I also ran MT 295/50/16 DRs at the strip on 9" wide wheels for awhile, with no issues. No way you can fit larger than 255 on the front, however.
