Buying Cobra R's tomorrow morning.....Do I need new lugnuts?

As stated above......Do I need new lugnuts and if so where can I buy

them besides online, do places like autozone or tire places sell them.

If so are there different size lugs, if so what is our size?




Thanks in Advance!

Picking up Cobras in CT after I leave workat 630am , so quick responses appreciated.

Cool beans, wish I was there. I just had one beer at the bar across from the beach before making like 10 cruises down the strip.

Was Goodtimes packed?

What are yall doing tomorrow night, Anything good?

Oh yeah, do I need to get these rims balanced or anything before they go on the car, I know about an alignment, but can they just bolt up safely?

Cobra's are on, they look unbelieveable! Wrapped in Falken 235/45/ZR17's.

Does anybody know what the widest tire that will fit on 17x7.5, without rubbing?

Thanks

235/45 is pretty damn short.

245 is the widest.

I do feel that they are short, but when the car is lowered, they will look sick. basically reducing fender gap to nothing.

here's a tire size calculator . you put in your stock tire size and the new tire size and it will tell you everything you want to know. for yours i put in 205/70/15 and 235/45/17 and the new tires came out to be 1 inch shorter.
